Spring is Springing!

After a truly dismal winter we welcome signs of spring with open arms. Here on the Bristol Road verge are the daffodils planted by the Gryphon School pupils:

Thanks kids – a very welcome sight for those coming into and leaving Sherborne. Well done!

Champion of Champions

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
  • Portishead
  • Truro
  • Sidmouth
  • Kingsbridge
  • St Just
  • Cannington
  • St Issey

This will be a demanding test of our blooming abilities and we are gearing up for a formidable contest.

Bring it on!
