Thornbury in Bloom

Thornbury In Bloom travelled to the County Cricket ground in Taunton yesterday to receive the results of the 2016 South West In Bloom competition. We had four Its Your Neighborhood Award entries Friends of Filnore Woods received a Thriving award and The Community garden, Daggs Allotments and The Tree Strategy group had the top award - Outstanding. The team were overjoyed when the town was awarded a Gold medal which meant we had maintained our high standard and even more delighted to learn we had been awarded the cup in our class as the best gold medal for a town of our size. The excitement then increased when we learnt that we had been awarded a cup for The Bruford Cup for the best non-Municipal Horticultural Display for Jack Ashton's garden in Church Road. We were then awarded a further cup, The Sargent Trophy for our Long term effort and dedication reflecting the effort consistently put in over the last 25 years. However the icing on the cake came when we were then awarded The Sponsors Trophy which was the final award for The Best Entry overall in the South West [ excluding the Champion of Champions class]. All this was way more than we expected but it reflects the effort put in by so many people and the amount of support and sponsorship we get from the community. Thanks go to everyone involved and we should all be very proud of our town and the amazing community spirit that has made these achievements possible." The awards are for all of us and the town as a whole- so we all have something to celebrate. Best wishes from the TiB team.
