Councillor Ms Vanessa Voysey, Town Mayor said “ In Bloom is a really community effort and it is good to see the town working together to provide a lovely place to live and work as well as welcoming for the many tourists. The bridge and quayside are a picture and with the hundreds of hanging baskets and plants, both perennial and seasonal, in full bloom we are proud to be part of a national campaign to enhance our local environment. Of course this is not all about flowers as can be evidenced by the events and community involvement in the town, where council staff and volunteers working alongside each other. We are mindful of the green agenda and recycling too. Thank you to everyone who works so hard. We really do have a town to be proud of”.

We look forward to welcoming the Heart of England in Bloom judges Mark Wiltshire and Roger Bache to Bridgnorth on Wednesday 13th July 2016 when they will be shown around the town and meet many of the people who help make the town the great place it is. They will also judge the garden and flowers at the Old Castle, West Castle Street who has entered best licensed premises competition and the children of the eco gardening Club at St. Leonards school who have entered the best school garden section.
