Triumphant gardeners in Garstang scooped a gold award in the UK finals of the RHS Britain in Bloom contest’s small town category.
Judges heaped glowing praise upon the town’s green fingered team, praising it for its pride and passion and describing it as “one of the best bloom communities in the United Kingdom.”
They said: “The Garstang bloom team can be proud of its working partnership with the community.
“It is good to see that you have continued to maintain one of the finest track records of any bloom group.”
Norah Hoyles, MBE, chairman of the Garstang in Bloom Steering Group and local retailer Lynn Nickson from the Bloom Steering Group, received the award from TV gardener Bob Flowerdew at a glittering awards ceremony.
Norah said: “I have to say a very big thank you to the bloom group and everybody involved this year.”
