In Bloom team wins Gold

FLOWERED UP: Rachel De Thame presents In Bloom’s award

Royal Tunbridge Wells in Bloom is celebrating after picking up a gold medal at the national final of this year’s Britain in Bloom competition.

 There was tough competition from the other finalists in the Small City category, with Tunbridge Wells coming up against Derry City in Northern Ireland, Newcastle-under-Lyme, and Oadby and Wigston in Leicestershire at the awards ceremony at the RHS Lindley Horticultural Hall in Westminster on Monday October 23.

 This marks Royal Tunbridge Wells in Bloom’s fourth Britain in Bloom national final, having won silver medals in 2012 and 2018 and a gold medal in 2019.

Tunbridge Wells came home with an additional RHS Britain in Bloom discretionary award certificate of achievement, recognising the efforts of local children and young people to look after our local blooms and create stunning floral displays to catch the eye of the judges.

 Councillor Pamela Wilkinson, Cabinet Member for Sport, Leisure and Health, said, “What an amazing achievement! We are lucky to have such a dedicated group as we all reap the rewards of having beautifully tended green spaces. A huge thank you and well done to everyone involved.”

RTW In Bloom’s organiser Katharina Mahler-Bech added: “The team is very happy as we managed to repeat our success of 2019 by getting Gold in the Small City category! With the support of all volunteers and businesses in our town Royal Tunbridge Wells, we aim for more Gold next year 2024.”
