South West in Bloom Judging Day

Today the South West in Bloom judges came to town to judge us for the regional competition.

Rob Harkness and Richard Budge arrived before 9am and the rules say that we have two and a half hours to show them round the town to impress them. So we took them to see all the highlights of our town including the New Castle Orangery and grounds, the station, the Pageant Garden, the Abbey, Sherborne School, the garden at The Willows, Cheap Street, the Paddock Garden and a load of places in between.

Cheap Street was a sight to behold: the street was alive with the sight of baskets, all blooming and all creating a pleasing environment for us and the shoppers. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make our town glow!

Before they left, the judges told us that they were very impressed by Sherborne. We have to wait until September before we know the results – but here’s hoping!
