How ironic after months of dry weather when gardeners performed daily rain dances, the heavens decided to open on Friday 24th when the two Thames and Chilterns in Bloom judges were in town. However, to their great credit they ploughed on with happy hearts.
Whilst we won’t find out the result until Wednesday 16th September in Oxford it is fair to say that both judges were very impressed with the progress made by Bloom over the past year. It would be unfair to single out any individual or group – everyone has worked singlemindedly and with great commitment. The judges saw the passion which underpins all of the projects and work. They both said this shone through. Thank you to everyone.
Whatever the outcome arrangements are being made to hold a celebration evening in the Town Hall in late September for everyone connected with Bloom – and for those who want to be. Details will follow.
2013 – Silver Gilt, Wokingham, large town category
2014 – Silver Gilt, Wokingham, large town category
2015 – fingers crossed! However, maintaining a Silver Gilt would be an excellent achievement.
