Blooming Success - Gold Award 2010

We are proud to announce that Budleigh in Bloom have scooped the gold award in the Ayre Cup category 2010, in the South West in Bloom contest. The committee sponsored by Paritor have landed this prize now for a second year in a row, and members were in high spirits on Friday when celebrations took place

Pat Prew, chairman of Budleigh in Bloom, said: “A grand day was had by all.
“Thank you to everybody who continues to support us and all of the helpers without whom we would not be able to reach the standard necessary to gain the gold.”

Bob Flowerdew, former presenter of the BBC Gardeners World television show presented the members with their award at the ceremony in Bath.

Beryl Maynard, secretary, commended the locals for their hard work in preparing for the competition, said: “The village once again pulled out all the stops and everybody worked hard to achieve the success.

The displays reached perfection just in time for the judge’s visit and the private gardens were superb as usual.

“They particularly singled out the immaculate, sharp-edged lawns in the war memorial and the splendid floral beds. The difficult bit will be to achieve the same standard next year’
