Our Pride groups bloom at awards

Rossendale Free Press - - News -

COM­MU­NITY groups in Bacup and Weir were de­lighted to win a plethora of awards from Bri­tain in Bloom judges.

Bacup Pride and Weir Pride at­tended the Royal Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety It’s Your Neigh­bour­hood awards in South­port and walked away with nine cer­tifi­cates in­clud­ing the high­est hon­our ‘Out­stand­ing’ - be­stowed on Bacup’s Wall of His­tory Gar­den on Tod­mor­den Road.

Chair­man Pat Smith said: “We had been de­ter­mined to get these beds im­proved on last year’s Level 4 award, and we did - we got a Level 5 Out­stand­ing, the high­est level there is.

“A huge thank you to ev­ery­one who has helped on the gar­den in what­ever way, whether reg­u­larly or for just the oc­ca­sional ses­sion, we couldn’t have done it with­out you.”

The fi­nal ac­co­lade for Bacup was a Level 4 Thriv­ing for the planters on Ir­well Ter­race.

Weir Pride also se­cured a Level 4 Thriv­ing for Heald Lane’s Bloom­ing Borders and the quirky jeans plant­ing was among five en­tries to re­ceive a Level 3 Ad­vanc­ing.

Thrilled sec­re­tary Julie Cun­liffe said: “In just two years we have made a tremen­dous dif­fer­ence to the vil­lage.”
