Nantwich in Bloom - Working for the enviroment


THIS year is the 50th anniversary of the launch of the Royal Horticultural Society's Britain in Bloom competition.

    Nantwich in Bloom has been proud and pleased to bring about success for the town on many occasions over the years.

   But we could not have done it without a lot of support and help from the members of Nantwich in Bloom, ANSA

(one of the companies in Cheshire East Council services; they do all the planting, grass cutting, etc), the town's shops and businesses, and individuals who have done their bit - well, no, a lot - towards the success.

   Last year, Nantwich was awarded gold medal status by the judges from the North West in Bloom (a division of RHS).




    We also won the prestigious North West Biodiversity

award for our work on the riverside (including the

community orchard on land behind Shrewbridge Road) and at Coed Wen, an open area of grassland where Nantwich in Bloom and pupils from local primary schools have planted plants and trees.

   We will not be resting on our laurels. With your help we hope we can repeat the success this year.

   The judges are looking for more than quality blooms in hanging baskets and planters. They are also looking to see if the town is clean, has a lack of weeds and litter, and whether Nantwich in Bloom is committed to looking after the environment.

   I think our past successes mean that we have shown we are. Undoubtedly.

   Please help by keeping a look out for litter which you can dispose off in the nearest litter bin or in your wheelie bin at home. Members of the Nantwich Litter Group will be hard at work in the run up to the judges' visit, but they

cannot be everywhere.

   And if you can create a display of plants so much the better. Our thanks to you in anticipation of your efforts.


l THE North West in Bloom judges will be in Nantwich on Thursday, July 17, taking a general look at the town. And Margaret Thrower will visit the town on Thursday, July 24, to judge the shops and business premises.

    If you would like to contact Nantwich in Bloom call either myself or the Secretary, Sue Hughes.
