BRITAIN IN BLOOM 2015 - CAN YOU HELP?
This year the colour scheme for the Town hanging baskets will be orange and yellow. If anyone would like to sponsor a basket or make a donation please contact the Town Council on 01908 618756.
For a number of years a small group of dedicated gardeners has not only improved the look of the public areas in Newport Pagnell, but has also undertaken all the administration for the Newport Pagnell in Bloom Campaign each year. This group, lead by John Smith, must be congratulated for everything they have put into the town. Now however, they wish to concentrate only on the physical aspects of gardening, so the Town Council has agreed to take on entry into the Britain in Bloom competition. In 2014 the Town won a Silver Gilt award, which was no mean feat, given that rules changed and we were placed into a category with towns much larger and better funded than our own.
If you would like to find out more about the gardening group please contact the Town Council and we will be happy to give you more details.
Our Town Mayor is donating a new trophy this year this is for the prettiest and neatest front garden in Newport Pagnell. Everything will be considered, there is no fee or entry form, if you would like to dominate someone please contact the Town Council. The size of your garden does not matter, the judges will be impartial, and the trophy will be awarded at the Horticultural Show in September 2015.
There will also be a trophy presented the Public House with the best flowers or garden display.
