A Letter from Nantwich

October 2005 (2) 

More blooming success 

   A combination of civic and private expertise for the Britain in Bloom competition with floral art at Nantwich Bus station and at the Red Cow pub in Beam Street in 2005.

WELL, it seems Nantwich has done it again. The town has "been hailed as the most beautiful town in the north west . . . thanks to the work of the dedicated Nantwich in Bloom team." So says Andrew Morrison in the September 29 edition of the Nantwich Guardian.

   Congratulations to the team, and well done - and thank you - to everyone who did their bit with floral art to help Nantwich towards the honour.

   It seems we "scooped a host of top awards" at the North West in Bloom presentations in Bolton - best town and most improved town. And now we will represent the region in next year's Britain in Bloom contest.

   Last year we won the silver-gilt prize in last year's country-wide awards, and Jean Hallam, one of the Nantwich in Bloom team wh went to Bolton, told the Guardian that they would be going for gold next summer.  Of course, we were no stranger to the awards list on many occasions in the past.

   Another Nantwich team was a prizewinner at the same ceremony. Richmond Village, London Road, won a merit award for making the retirement village look great.

   Fingers crossed for next summer.
