Wilmslow Town Council has contributed £2,000 towards the town’s Britain in Bloom entry.

Wilmslow In Bloom was awarded the town council grant to support their entry into the annual RHS competition, which Wilmslow has entered annually since 2012.

This year’s theme will be the Platinum Jubilee, and judging will take place on Monday 4th July.

Wilmslow In Bloom is a community partnership made up of many local voluntary groups.

Organisations being showcased this year include: Love the Lane (Chapel Lane), Friends of Colshaw Parks, Friends of Wilmslow Station, Lindow Common Advisory Group, Wilmslow and District Rotary, Wilmslow Community Market Garden (Oakenclough Children’s Centre), Wilmslow Community Market Garden (The Temp) and Wilmslow United Reformed Church.

The council funding will be used for items such as planters for local schools, jubilee-themed plants, insurance costs, website and artwork for flyers and the competition portfolio.

In addition to the community grant award, Wilmslow Town Council has paid the entry fee for this year’s Britain In Bloom competition.

The council also funds and maintains floral displays, which this year include the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee planters.

Town council chair, Frank McCarthy said: “We are delighted to support a project that recognises both the individual and collective efforts of numerous local community groups.

“The Wilmslow In Bloom team work incredibly hard to help make our town biodiverse and beautiful; we wish them the best of luck for judging day on Monday 4th July.”
