On Wednesday 16th September 2015 at Oxford Town Hall the Thames and Chilterns in Bloom regional awards were announced. Wokingham in Bloom was delighted to receive a Silver Gilt medal in the large town category. Our score of 166 out of 200 equates to 83%, up from 75% in 2013 and 80% in 2014. Huge congratulations to everyone involved. As you can see from the detailed marking sheets the judges were impressed with everything they saw. Members of the Bloom steering group have subsequently met with the senior judge for more in-depth feedback. Based on this we think that 2016’s entry will have more focus on the town centre around Broad, Denmark, Peach and Rose Streets. However, before we launch into 2016 it’s reasonable to reflect on a job very well done in 2015!
