Today I had the great pleasure in attending the North West in Bloom competition with our very own Garstang in Bloom team which was being held at Southport Convention centre.
It was a huge event, we even got treated with a sit down meal-yum yum, they were catering for approx 550 people! I had a wonderful day spending time with the team.
Garstang did so well again with Gold for the town, Gold too for Kepple Lane Park and the Millennium Green. Croston House (Cancer Help), Sandbriggs Court, and ‘The Woodlands’ Oak Road also won top awards. Garstang also won a Gold in a discretionary category, ‘Gardening in a Changing Climate’. This is for using stored rain water at Booths supermarket rather than using water from the mains supply.
We are very proud of all our bloomers, the dedication they put into making our town look so wonderful is truly appreciated by us all.
