Colwyn Bay: Wales in Bloom - Fifteen Years of Outstanding Success

21st September 2015

Categories: News

Colwyn Bay has won the Best Large Town Award in the prestigious Wales in Bloom competition for the fifteenth successive year.

John Woods, Wales in Bloom adjudicator in his report said “  It was a great pleasure to visit Colwyn in Bloom and see so many positive environmental projects in the space of a morning! Very well done on a first class entry that included some exemplary new developments at both Llandrillo yn Rhos School, and Porth Eirias Beach. The bedding seen at Queen’s Gardens was amongst the best seen this summer.”

Ingrid Lewis Colwyn Bay Town Manager and Chair of Colwyn in Bloom comments:” To win the title fifteen years in succession clearly demonstrates the high level of investment, organisation, dedication and management of the Colwyn in Bloom initiative.  The ongoing achievement of Colwyn in Bloom is remarkable.  The hard work and sheer enthusiasm of so many community and business groups, individuals and the public sector should be applauded.

With such outstanding success over the years, there is a real danger that people become complacent about this immense achievement.  This is a major national award which places Colwyn Bay at the very top of large towns throughout Wales.  Congratulations are due to everyone involved”

Apart from ensuring the area is attractive year around, the award provides a welcome boost to the local community and an additional marketing tool for the Bay Life programme to promote the town for inward investors and visitors.
