Colwyn in Bloom in the RHS Britain in Bloom Finals 2016

24th February 2016

Categories: News

Four entrants to represent Wales.


Colwyn in Bloom has been selected from more than 600 entrants to take part in the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Britain in Bloom UK Finals 2016.


Colwyn in Bloom is one of 72 finalists from across the UK and is in the Large Town category.

The group was selected for its outstanding commitment to environmental responsibility, community participation and gardening achievement.


In August this year, Colwyn in Bloom’s passionate volunteers will be showing off their commitment to a greener, healthier Britain. They will lead RHS Britain in Bloom judges on a tour of local projects and initiatives in the hope of being awarded Gold at the annual award ceremony in October.


In recognition of challenges some RHS Britain in Bloom 2016 UK finalists face as a result of the recent floods, the RHS has created a new award to honour those who have battled against adversity.


The RHS discretionary award for overcoming adversity will recognise those groups that have worked in difficult circumstances to put the bloom back into their towns, villages and cities across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Jersey and Guernsey.


Ingrid Lewis, Chair of Colwyn in Bloom said “It is a tremendous honour for Colwyn Bay to have been nominated once again to represent Wales in the Britain in Bloom competition. I am confident that the local community, environmental groups and individuals will all rise to this exciting challenge.


Andrea Van Sittart, RHS Head of Community Outreach, said: “We would like to congratulate Colwyn in Bloom for reaching the UK finals of RHS Britain in Bloom. It’s a tremendous achievement and illustrates the groups’ impressive commitment to improving their local environment.
