Champion of Champions Cup

Last October we became joint South West in Bloom Champion of Champions with St Just in Cornwall.

Bonhomous as we are, we let them take the cup home for the first half of the year. Then last week we had an email from them to say they’d like to meet up on the A303 and hand the cup over to us.

So, we got together and Giles of St Just presented the cup to Gillian of Sherborne, together with a nice bunch of blooms.

Thank you St Just. We’re proud to have this magnificent trophy.

See the cup around town: we’re passing it around different venues so that the people of Sherborne can see it and share our pride!

Britain in Bloom!

We’ve done it. After all the years of blooming gold awards we’ve been entered into the National competition by South West in Bloom.

Sherborne is one of eight towns of similar size in England, Wales and Scotland who’ll be competing to win top marks from the judges. There are 78 other towns, cities and villages all around the UK who will also be competing.  Judging takes place in August and we’ll know the results in October.

This is a major achievement for all the hardworking gardeners and volunteers who help to make our town so beautiful.  Let’s now get on with it!
