ORGANISERS of Pebworth in Bloom are celebrating after scooping a top honour at the recent Heart of England in Bloom awards.
As well as scooping a gold award and being judged best in the village category, Pebworth has been asked to represent the six counties of Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Stafford-shire, Shropshire, Here-fordshire and Gloucestershire in the RHS UK finals in 2020.
This remarkable result was topped by the chairman’s award for Outstanding Achievement.
Speaking after the awards held near Rugby, Roger Bache, chair of Heart of England in Bloom, praised the many ‘enchanting’ front gardens, the superb attention to grass maintenance and the massive turnout at the village hall on judging day.
Mr Bache added: “Pebworth in Bloom built a legacy for future generations with conservation and preservation projects such as bird and bat boxes and hedgehog homes being installed, ancient trees being pollarded to ensure their survival and sustainable and sympathetic planting.
“Pebworth in Bloom are truly ‘gold-winning legacy-makers’.
