East Midland’s In Bloom results shower the borough with gold awards.
THREE gold awards were won by North East Lincolnshire at this year’s East Midlands in Bloom competition – the most successful year to date.
Cleethorpes secured gold and also won the coastal resort category with a judges’ award also going to the town for ‘art in the landscape’.
Grimsby won gold in the small city category and also secured a judges’ award for the volunteers who created the Galleon Bed.
Immingham also took home gold in the town category.
Council officials are delighted with this year’s success.
Tony Hunter, North East Lincolnshire Council’s chief executive, said: “This is great news for the whole of North East Lincolnshire and shows just what can be achieved when people work together.
“In Bloom isn’t just about one person or one committee, it’s about the community, volunteers, businesses and the council all working together to make our neighbourhoods a better place. It is great example of what can be achieved when people pull together. Congratulations to everyone involved.”
The 2013 East Midlands in Bloom Awards took place on Wednesday. September 12, at Springfields Festival Gardens, Spalding. Organisers saw an increased number of entrants with 55 community groups entering the Bloom from across the East Midlands Region.
Each of the entries was judged during July on horticultural expertise, the maintenance of the local environment and the involvement of all sectors of the local community.Leave a comment
