On your marks . . . it’s the Bloom judges!

Ilkeston Bloom judging

Both Ilkeston and Long Eaton’s flower power and bedding displays have been judged in the Large Town Category of the annual East Midlands in Bloom awards – with residents now keeping their fingers crossed for success when the results are announced in September.

Erewash Borough Council hosted visits by the regional judges over the last week and were given guided tours of both towns to see floral displays provided by Erewash Borough Council and to meet schoolchildren, artists, local residents and the Friends groups which support the Bloom initiative.

Places visited in the Ilkeston area included Straw’s Bridge Local Nature Reserve, Clarksfield Community Allotments, Victoria Park, Stanton Road Cemetery and the General Havelock public house, which has entered the Business in Bloom category.

LE Bloom judging

In Long Eaton the tour included visits to the library grounds, Wilsthorpe Road allotments, West Park, the ReVive Shop Project to meet local artists and the Penneyfields estate to look at residents’ gardens.

Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:

“Both our towns look absolutely stunning again this summer and we are very grateful for all the compliments and lovely comments we receive from residents who love our summertime displays.

“We are very proud of them and it is a credit to the hard work that is put in by our teams – but we also send our heartfelt thanks to those businesses and individuals in the community who also join in by providing their own wonderful displays. Together we help ensure a colourful, clean and welcoming look for residents and visitors. Our success in this prestigious competition over the years has been outstanding and we hope for more success in 2017.”

Residents in Draycott again hope to win an award as a community entry – while Breaston in Bloom volunteers and residents hope to scoop an award with their first entry into the competition.

Results of the East Midlands in Bloom 2017 competition will be announced at an awards ceremony in Boston, Lincolnshire on Wednesday 13 September.
