Getting ready for the Britain in Bloom Judges

On Wednesday 1st August the Britain In Bloom judges will be judging Oswestry in the National Competition. This is a tremendous honour for Oswestry and we will be competing against the best large towns in Great Britain.

In addition the Heart of England In Bloom judges will be judging Oswestry on Friday 13th July, 2018 a competition Oswestry has achieved Gold in for ten consecutive years !

The Oswestry In Bloom Committee are organising some exciting projects in the town and Cae Glas Park to show Oswestry at its best. They will be working closely with The Meadows Primary School in Henley Woods and Bellan House School are involved in a project on Central Car Park. The committee will highlight the impressive number of events we will be holding including the massive Hot Air Balloon Festival at the end of August. Grey areas of the town will be a focus as well as the improving a planting schemes and street furniture.

The Oswestry in Bloom Committee also runs its own competition and by helping us make Oswestry colourful you will also put yourself in the running for this competition too. Margaret Thrower, the daughter of Britain's first celebrity gardener Percy Thrower, will be judging the competition from the 16th - 18th July, 2018 so why not have a go.

Oswestry Town Council will also be running the annual hanging basket scheme in the town centre and the In Bloom Committee would urge all businesses to come on board and help make Oswestry as attractive as possible, even if it's to displaying a Britain In Bloom support poster. Please contact Louise Humphreys on 680222 for more details on these important initiatives.
