The Winning Team!

Sedgefield in Bloom volunteers celebrated their winning year at a Christmas coffee morning, with this clutch of recent awards; Golden success in Northumbria and Britain in Bloom, followed in November, by seven awards for It’s Your Neighbourhood projects. The racecourse was judged Thriving, while Outstanding awards went to Cherry Tree Nursery, Crispin Court, Rectory Row, Claremont Grove, Malton Terrace Herb Garden and Hardwick Park volunteers. We may submit more “It’s Your Neighbourhood” projects in 2015, including Ceddesfeld Gardens, where several areas have been transformed thanks to the Bloomers’ hard work.

 

In 2015, Sedgefield will enter Northumbria in Bloom, but take a rest from the national competition. New volunteers are always welcome; this year each Bloomer has been set a challenge – to recruit an apprentice. Not the kind you normally see, fresh from school, although pupils of all ages already make a great contribution to Bloom activities. We are seeking adults younger than ourselves; not difficult, as most of the Bloomers are enjoying unrestful retirement. No skills required, full training given, good company and laughter guaranteed.

 

Our regular meeting time is Wednesday at 10am, but we may set up a weekend task force for new volunteers not available during the week. If you’d like to be involved, tell a Bloomer, call 620091 or email norma@neal.myzen.co.uk.

Happy Blooming New Year!
