Her Majesty the Queen was only(!) 87 years old when she visited Sherborne in 2012 to commemorate her Diamond Jubilee.
On her 90th birthday today her loyal subjects here and around the world will be celebrating her long and active reign.
She is a great inspiration to her subjects of all ages and we bloomers hope that she has a truly happy day.
We would like to send Her Majesty our very best wishes and hope that she has many more birthdays to come.
And she is very welcome to come back to Sherborne whenever she likes 🙂
Happy Birthday, Ma-am!
Here in Sherborne in Bloom we have a new challenge!
Because we won gold and best in our category last year in South West in Bloom, we have now been automatically entered into the 2016 Champion of Champions competition.
What this means is that we will not be competing against other ‘small towns’ of our size but instead our competitors will be the other cities, towns and villages that also won best in their categories. These are:
- Weston super Mare
- St Just
- St Issey
This will be a demanding test of our blooming abilities and we are gearing up for a formidable contest.
Bring it on!
