Wilmslow In Bloom scoops a seventh Gold award

The work of the Wilmslow In Bloom teams were rewarded by the RHS North west judges this week when the town won yet another Gold award presented at an informal celebration.

RHS Judge, Mel Kirby, who has visited the town a number of times, brought the awards and made individual presentations on Tuesday, 26th November.

Additionally, of the eight neighbourhood projects shown to the judges, five were given the top award of 'Outstanding' the equivalent of a Gold, and the other three all achieved 'Thriving', the equivalent of a Silver Gilt.

'Outstanding' awards went to Chapel Lane Love the Lane, to the work by Transition Wilmslow at the Community Garden at the Temp, to Lindow Common, Incredible Edible and to a first time entrant – the Community Garden at Oakenclough.

Members of the United Reformed Church, members of Dean Row Rotary and the Friends of Wilmslow Station were rewarded with Silver Gilt awards

In a first time award – and to a first time entrant, the Community Garden at Oakenclough was presented with the National Certificate of Distinction.

Ruth Menlove, Chair of Wilmslow In Bloom said "Between us, we recorded despite the prevailing restrictions, over 1,800 hours of work on our various projects and it shows!

"Thank you to everyone who contributed to our In Bloom programme this year. Many people comment on the value of your work to the general appearance of the town. You should all be very proud."
