Stonehouse in Bloom is top of the podium!

05 September 2019 at 15:55

The fantastic floral displays that have blossomed in Stonehouse throughout the summer have resulted in success at this year’s Heart of England in Bloom awards. They won the Small Town category, were re-awarded a gold medal and are now in the national finals for Britain in Bloom.

Hanging baskets, planters, troughs and window boxes have been overflowing with colourful bedding plants all around the town which has gained much admiration from residents, businesses and visitors. Stonehouse’s ‘In Bloom’ committee, a dedicated band of volunteers, has ensured that nearly every corner of Stonehouse looked its best throughout the summer months and, in particular, for judging day on 12th July.

Councillor Debbie Curtis who is also a member of the In Bloom committee, said: “Everyone pulled out all the stops this year and the town has been looking wonderful. We are so pleased and happy that all of the hard work has paid off and we are very excited about being finalists in the national competition.”

Councillor Neil Gibbs, Mayor of Stonehouse, said: “I would like to send my congratulations to the In Bloom volunteers but also thanks to local residents and businesses who have also played their part in keeping the town looking so lovely.”
