Hereford In Bloom - Pride of the County
Gold Medal for Hereford
Hereford in Bloom volunteers worked throughout the 18 months of the pandemic to ensure the city’s floral displays were at their very best – and the Britain in Bloom judges have recognised their efforts with the award of a Gold Medal.
A 30 page portfolio highlighting what the judges would have seen on their usual tour of the city was sent to them. They declared the information in the portfolio excellent and gave Hereford 89 out of 100 points in the three categories : horticulture, environment and community
Kevin Knipe. Bloom chairman, said: “The Gold award was well earned by our hard working volunteers who devote many hours each week keeping the floral displays in good order to welcome visitors to Hereford.
“The judges also praised Herefordshire Council for the 40 new large planters with trees which have added significantly to the environment of the city centre.”
Bloom volunteers spent 200 hours restoring the three large beds opposite the railway station
