BRITAIN IN BLOOM 2015 - JUDGING DAY?
Well summer is here at last, and the judges for the Britain in Bloom competition were in the town on 15th July.
We have two new competitions - the Best Front Garden Competition and the
Best Floral Display by a pub.
You don't need to enter, but if you see us lurking around your road taking pictures of your wonderful front garden, you should know that you are in with a chance of winning the Best Front Garden competition. If you win you will be awarded the trophy at the Horticultural Show in September. Good luck to all.
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.
Donations have been received from IT Support Line Limited, John Smith, Rosalie Anne Parsons and the Newport Pagnell Rotary Club.
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.
