Knutsford has won the sought-after Gold Award in the North West in Bloom competition for the third year running. Volunteers from Knutsford in Bloom worked in partnership with the Town Council to provide stunning displays around the town.
Knutsford in Bloom is a volunteer group established in 2009 which is made up of 10 dedicated members. The success of this year’s entry is even more impressive given the long drought that preceded the judging day in July this year.
The group is now looking for new members to join, offering opportunities to be involved in larger projects such as planting a wildflower meadow as well as the opportunity to work on displays in prominent town centre locations.
Sam Youd, member of the group and former Head Gardener at Tatton Park, is particularly keen to see younger people involved in the projects, inviting interest from local schools and youth groups such as the Scouts and Guides.
Cllr James Power, Chairman of the Town Council Environment Committee said “A massive thank you to the incredible volunteers who have won gold again for Knutsford. I would encourage anyone who is interested in joining Knutsford in bloom to get in touch”
