The Mayor of Chesterfield, Councillor Jenny Flood, has presented awards to the winners of the 2024 Chesterfield in Bloom Children’s Painting Competition.

The winners were invited to Chesterfield Town Hall on Wednesday 10 July where they were presented with a certificate and gift card, and also got to see their paintings turned into banners which will hang outside the town hall.

This year the competition was about nurturing nature in Chesterfield and the importance of letting the grass grow longer and the flowers bloom to boost biodiversity and create new habitats.
