Champion of Champions!

Great news – we are joint Champion of Champions in the South West region of RHS Britain in Bloom.

At the presentation event at Somerset County Cricket Ground in Taunton yesterday, we were awarded the title jointly with St Just, Cornwall. The judge, Jon Wheatley, announced that St Just and Sherborne scored exactly the same number of leading points in this year’s Champion of Champions competition and that therefore we were joint Champions.

The prizes were presented by Lord Julian Fellowes who is a patron of South West in Bloom. This picture shows the members of our team who attended the event holding the cup and the certificates awarded to us.

The CoC competition is open only to last year’s South West in Bloom category winners. Because we won the Preece Cup last year we were the winners in the Small Town category. So this year we competed against all these other winners in their categories:

  • Weston Super Mare
  • Kingsbridge
  • Truro
  • St Just
  • Cannington
  • St Issey
  • Sidmouth
  • Portishead

And we came out top!

This is an enormous achievement for Sherborne. We are so grateful to all of our numerous friends who have contributed their time, skills, commitment (and money!) to make this prestigious award possible.
