Today we welcomed Chris Evans (no not the DJ!) and Jean Griffiths to Storrington to judge our entry in the Small Town category of the South & South East in Bloom regional competition.
We met the judges at Foxmead Court and took them on a tour of the Meadow, Rydon School, Melton Drive, Fryern Dell, Bramber Avenue, Millennium Pond, Amberley Road Allotments, Matt’s Meadow and West Street before exiting the minibus and proceeding on foot from Ropemakers Cottages, through the Library car park, past the wildflower strip to the wheelbarrow display at the bus stand before continuing via Old Mill Drive and Square to the newly refurbished defibrillator box. The judges were then shown some of the wonderful business window displays before finishing up with refreshments at The Moon pub.
Thankfully the weather held for us and the judges made some very positive comments. We now have the long wait for the results in September.
Thank you to everyone who supported us with our judges tour.
