RHS Britain in Bloom Heating Up

By on 23rd September in Garden

With the competition drawing to a close and the final winner being announced in St Andrews, Scotland on Sunday, everybody has got their fingers crossed for their local in Bloom community.

Huntingdon, who received funding from Anglian Home Improvements, won a gold in Anglia in Bloom, which has given them hope that they can go on to top the bill at the national awards for RHS Britain in Bloom.

It was the only town to win gold at Anglia in Bloom, but they lost out to Wisbech in the large town category.

To scoop the top prize Huntingdon is up against some tough competition in Whickham in Northumbria, Coleraine in Ulster, Whitehaven in Cumbria, Glenrothes in Scotland and Colne in Lancashire.

Huntingdon has had a successful campaign not only getting gold, but also being named best community project, for the work on Hinchingbrooke hospital garden project. 12 volunteers worked on the project, many of them have had family members treated in the hospital, so they were glad to be able to give something back.

Anglian Home Improvements also gave funding to Luddenden in Bloom, who have created this wonderful video of their village through the years.
