North West Britain In Bloom Judges visit Southport

SOUTHPORT'S green fingered volunteers rallied around over the last few weeks, with a last push yesterday in the rain to get the Town Centre looking at it's best for the North West in Bloom competition judges. The army of helpers, supported by local businesses and other groups have made a fantastic effort and despite the rain, the Town has never looked so nice. "We are quite optimistic. The weather has been an issue this year, as well as the fact the judges opted to come on 12 July, as Orange Man's day celebrations took place. But our small team have spent hours, not only on Lord Street but on other areas of the Town Centre, including the Promenade. We hope the judges liked what they had seen." said a spokesperson for the Volunteer gardeners. What do you think about their efforts? Also with the Britain in Bloom judges coming to the Town later in the year, can you help in any way? Please email us to:- and we will pass your thoughts and views, plus any offers on support on to this dedicated team. Well done to all of you. You had done a stunning job and are a credit to the area!
