Volunteers and guests of the In Bloom gardening groups attended the awards ceremony which took place at Bolton Wanderers football stadium on Thursday, 19th October.
Wilmslow in Bloom Chair Sue Worthington said "The RHS judges were hugely impressed with how fantastic the town looked and also of the work that had been achieved by the eight "In Your
Neighbourhood' entries that were included during their visit in July."
Additionally, Gold awards were given to Friends of Wilmslow Station, the Community Market Gardens at Oakenclough and the Temp, the United Reformed Church and Lindow Common who also received an addition award from RHS for Outstanding achievement over 5 years. Wilmslow and District Rotary were also recognised with a Silver award for their work on the rose gardens in the Memorial Gardens.
Another Silver award was received by HMP Styal, a new entry this year, for their wonderful pond and wilding area and Colshaw Estate Tenant and Resident Association (Oakenclough) received an improving award - a new group who entered the "In Your Neighbourhood."
Sue Worthington, Chair of Wilmslow In Bloom, said 'We are all very proud of the work our volunteers created throughout the town who managed to contribute over 5000 hours during the year to make Wilmslow look great.
"We garden every Tuesday Morning 10-12 and would welcome anyone who would like to take part. There is no commitment and not necessary to come along each week. We welcome anyone who wants to come along. Its good fun, and very social. We would like to thank Wilmslow Town Council for their support during the year."
