BAKEWELL: Blooming wonderful town scoops awards

Bakewell in Bloom goes from strength to strength and this year’s national Britain in Bloom competition brought a host of awards.

For the overall look of the town a Silver Gilt was awarded, gaining a few more points than last year and just five marks from the holy grail of a gold. Local graphic design consultancy Grafika Ltd received a Gold award plus an additional award in the “Best Business Premises” category for their delightful little garden and for their community support and involvement. Silver Gilt was also awarded for a small private garden with particularly good design and healthy plants.

In July, Bakewell in Bloom held local competitions. The Best Shop Window Display was won by both Bird Song and Elliott Rose Apothecary. The Peacock, The Original Bakewell Pudding Shop, Naughty but Nice and the Castle also received awards in their categories.

Organisers of Bakewell in Bloom have expressed thanks to all the businesses and participants who supported the contest.
