This award is considered to be a potential Gold award winner in the future.
The judges were especially impressed with contributions from the Town Council. The new fern bed installed by our Green Spaces Team in Bank Gardens, the wildlife haven in the Bisley Road Old Cemetery and the bench refurbishment and tree stump project in Park Gardens all being singled out for praise. The judges also commended our efforts to make Stroud a plastic bag free town, along with the ongoing campaign to become the world’s first Bee Guardian Town.
Malcolm Tarling, chair of the Stroud in Bloom committee, thanked everyone who helped with this year’s bid. "We now look forward to starting the 2011 campaign with winter planting," he added.
