Nantwich in Bloom - Working for the enviroment


NANTWICH In Bloom is delighted to have once again scooped a prestigious Gold Award from the Britain In Bloom competition.

   Representatives from the group joined hundreds at the ceremony at Southport Conference Centre on Friday, October 30, where they collected the Gold Award for Best Town.

   The continued collaboration with Nantwich In Bloom and Nantwich Town Council has led to this great success, of which we should be very proud.

   Nantwich In Bloom is a voluntary organisation, which receives support from Nantwich Town Council by means of a grant and through funding for many baskets and planters around the town.

   The Nantwich In Bloom committee has also recognised the efforts of the shops, pubs and restaurants in town, by awarding many with certificates.

   This is a great achievement for the town. If you would like to share the success, then why not become a volunteer?  For further information visit or contact the Secretary Sue Hughes on 01270 652513 or email
