Village in Bloom – Gold Award and More!

If you haven’t already heard – Acocks Green Village received a Gold Award again this year in the entry The RHS Heart of England Britain in Bloom Awards. That is 3 years in a row! Also the team were given a special Community Award for the first time. Here are the comments from the judges about this award:

The community led Bloom initiative in Acocks Green Village goes from strength to strength. This year the judges saw and heard about more horticultural projects, schools engagement, the new Heritage Trail, new village sculpture, bigger and better events (including the launch event) and a new 2017 calendar.

Newcomers and first-entries are highly recommended to spend a day with Fran Lee and the team to gain first hand knowledge of how to bring together community resources.

Well done everyone

The support of the business and local community is so important to the team and their success. A perfect example is the support that Jeffries Hardware offers Village in Bloom, in so many ways, and here is a very visual example – they offered the team the shop window to display their successes:

Thank you Jeffries Hardware – recommended by ViB team for great gardening equipment and plants.
