Thames and Chilterns in Bloom Awards, 2016

Twyford Together has picked up a silver gilt medal in the Thames and Chilterns in Bloom awards.

Thames and Chilterns in Bloom Awards 2016

As a first-time entrant to the competition, we are thrilled with this accolade.

The judges were ‘hugely impressed by the enthusiasm and dedication from all those involved.’ Businesses, individual organisations and community members were commended for sponsoring the village hanging baskets, Hare Hatch Sheeplands for their ‘thriving Front Garden Competition’, Twyford and Ruscombe Horticultural Association for their ‘Bug Hotel’, The Colleton School and the Friends of the Loddon Community Nature Reserve for encouraging biodiversity, our volunteer litter pickers for keeping the village tidy, Mr and Mrs Stafford for maintaining Jubilee Corner and the sixteen householders in The Grove who got together 'to improve their little community.’

The judges went on to say: ‘It is apparent that Twyford is a thriving community. The RHS Britain in Bloom initiative provides a further opportunity (for Twyford Together) to engage different groups whose key focus is to improve the environment and organise activities which will provide pleasure for many people, adults and children alike.’

A special mention must go to Paul Cassidy and Gordon Storey who led this project on behalf of Twyford Together.
