Thames and Chilterns in Bloom judges visit the town on Thursday 21st July

Experienced Thames and Chilterns in Bloom judges Kate Dagnall and Paul Almond were taken around the town between 10:30 and 1:15pm by the chairman of the Bloom steering group Tony Hewetson and Town Clerk Mrs Jan Nowecki.  They talked to many Bloom volunteers as they visited among other locations Rose Street, South Place, the library, Latimer Road allotments, St. Paul’s churchyard, Holt Copse, Woosehill Meadows pond and Hawthorns school.

Whilst we won’t find out the result until 15th September it is fair to say that the judges were given more than a flavour of the work carried out by the volunteers over the past year.

The tour ended with lunch hosted by Rose Street Methodist Church where they saw an exhibition of photographs documenting the Bloom year.  These photos were taken by members of Wokingham and East Berkshire Camera Club led by Roger Holdsworth.
