We were thrilled to receive the Silver Gilt Medal Award at the Royal Horticultural Society’s North West ‘Britain in Bloom’ Awards, in the ‘Best Large Village’ category at a presentation ceremony held on Friday at Southport Theatre.
It wasn’t something we expected to win and we had an amazing day. We’ve worked incredibly hard this year to get the village blooming!
The Bloomers, Michelle, Suzi, Anne, Leah and Val would like to say a huge thank you to everyone. We couldn’t have done it without the backing from local businesses, supportive comments and donations from local people – which kept us going! and some lovely enthusiastic helpers who have been amazing and just got stuck in when we needed more help.
This is the first year Wallasey Village in Bloom has entered the competition and we are now looking forward to next year and what we can achieve and are already thinking about creative ideas we can come up with to wow the judges next time!
