Tewkesbury in Bloom
Judging Day success
Posted by on Thursday, July 27, 2017
After months of preparation and hard work, the Heart of England judges Roger Bache and David Pritchard visited us this week for a two hour tour. We were assessed on our horticultural achievements which make up 50% of the award as well as environmental and community participation (both 25%). The results of our efforts will not be known until September when we have been invited to an awards ceremony at Warwick Castle.
This year we were also followed by a camera crew who are making a BBC2 fly on the wall documentary about gardening groups entering the Britain in Bloom competition, and the cameras have focused on the progress of our project from May to July.
There were a number of highlights on the tour for the judges to enjoy including a performance by the Town Band and a helicopter ride giving a bird's eye view of Tewkesbury Nature Reserve and the Ham.
This year's tour went like clockwork from a timing perspective, to having the right people in the right place and for our displays to be at their very best. We are all looking forward to hearing details of our award.
Its a hat trick...
Summer plants are...
