Congratulations to all of our winners.

On Friday the South & South East in Bloom regional results were announced at an awards ceremony at the Amex in Brighton. Storrington had three entries in their competition and received the following results:

  • St Mary’s Churchyard achieved a Silver Gilt in the churchyard category
  • Place Villerest was awarded a Silver Gilt in the single floral display category
  • Storrington Town Centre again received a Silver Gilt award, achieving 80% of the possible points but still 10 points short of the unattainable Gold!

However, we celebrate that the score continues to increase and we have now achieved 50 more points than our first entry back in 2012. There are many people to thank for this improvement over the past six years, and special awards were also presented:

  • For even more trips with the watering cart than usual – Nick Charman
  • For endless supplies of water during the long hot summer – Steve Tovee
  • For their poppy display marking 100 years since the end of the 1st World War – 1st Sullington Brownies
  • For endless support of the In Bloom entry and clean ups – Sue & Eddie Shelton
  • For the transformation of the Mill Lane car park beds – Gilly & Peter North
  • For a consistently beautiful front garden year after year – Marilyn Dadds

And in recognition of the endless hours invested over many years and the transformation of a number of areas of Storrington – to Gill Ion and Pat Mansbridge.

With thanks to our sponsors

And a BIG thanks to all our volunteers and local businesses without whom none of this would be possible.
