Tamworth In Bloom
Tamworth in Bloom strikes gold for the SEVENTH year running
Tamworth is in seventh heaven after striking gold yet again in the Heart of England in Bloom competition – the seventh year in a row.
The borough’s accolade in the ‘Small City’ category was revealed at a ceremony in Aldridge where Tamworth picked up two awards. This year, Tamworth also came away with a Silver Gilt award for Wigginton Park in a new ‘Parks and Open Spaces’ category which was entered by The Friends of Wigginton Park volunteers group.
Months of hard work by council staff, community groups, sheltered housing schemes, businesses and green-fingered residents across the borough ensured it was lucky number seven for the gold medal by helping to maintain the town’s high standard for fabulous floral displays, impressive community projects and thriving wildlife habitats.
