Prestigious Gold award for Bloom team

 October 2014

Nantwich in Bloom - Working for the enviroment


NANTWICH was awarded a prestigious Gold award at the North West in Bloom presentation event on Friday, October 24, in Southport.

  There was also an award for the town for the floral bed adjacent to the library. This was designed by Ansa (the Cheshire East Council company delivering environmental services) to commemorate 50 years of Britain in Bloom.

   Nantwich shared the Best Town award with Kirkham in Bloom and Barnoldswick in Bloom. 

   Congratulations to our Nantwich in Bloom volunteers for creating a wonderful floral display again this summer.

   A special award went to Doug and Penny Butterill for their outstanding contribution to North West in Bloom. Congratulations to them. This is well-deserved recognition of their valuable work over many years. (See below)


NANTWICH in Bloom held its own awards ceremony on September 23 at Richmond village.

   The awards are presented in a number of categories including allotments, public houses, retail and commercial premises as well as private house gardens.

   They were judged by professional judges including Margaret Thrower, daughter of the first television gardener, Percy Thrower.

   This year we had an excellent number of entries throughout the various categories and some amazing results. One such Gold Award was presented to Mia Stanza, of Beam Street, for their magnificent hanging baskets.


WE are now at the stage of planting our winter/spring displays. We will be planting polyanthus, primulas, pansies and violas along with spring-flowering daffodil and hyacinths bulbs.

   If you have some time to spare and would like to help  please contact our secretary Sue Hughes on 01270 652513 or email
