Judging Day

Posted by on Sunday, July 21, 2013
Our judging for the Heart of England in Bloom awards went well. In sweltering heat Roger Bache and Mark Wiltshire were given a tour around the town viewing Tewkesbury Allotments, Marina Court and  Home Abbey Gardens, flower beds by the Black Bear at Victoria Gardens and 1471, baskets and coronets etc in Bishops Walk, the High Street, Church Street and Barton Street. At Victoria Gardens they were formally welcomed by the Town Crier. Then they were taken through Newtown to Alderman Knight School where they saw wildflower and vegetable gardens and spoke to pupils and staff. They finished by viewing the wheelbarrows which had been planted up by local school children using edible plants.
