Gold Again!

Good news from South West in Bloom – Sherborne won another gold award yesterday.

Four of us attended the annual South West in Bloom awards ceremony at the Imperial Hotel, Torquay on Thursday 5 October.

We were proud and privileged  to be awarded another gold for our town.

The prizes were presented by Lord Julian and Lady Emma Fellowes, who are patrons of South West in Bloom.

We were also awarded a string of It’s Your Neighbourhood awards. Click here to see details.

Now we have to wait for the results of the RHS Britain in Bloom competition, which we will learn on Friday 27 October. Fingers crossed, please!

Judging Day

Today the South West in Bloom judges, Tony Moore and Martyn Davis,  came to Sherborne.

We took them on a two-hour tour of the town plus we had a 30-minute presentation in the vicarage  where we showed them all the sights they were not seeing today.

They seemed quite impressed but we won’t know our result until October.

Fingers and toes crossed, Bloomers!
