Wimborne in Bloom’s annual prize-giving took place on Saturday (21 September) at Allenbourn Middle School.
As well as trophies and certificates for the main Wimborne in Bloom competition, there were further awards in the Senior and Junior sections of the Art and Poetry competitions.
Moose International, Wimborne Town Lodge donated the certificates and a special thank you was given to Michael Randall for preparing them all. Grateful thanks were also expressed to Moose International for their recent £600 donation towards the cost of new planters.
There were two surprise items at the end of the ceremony. The Sam and Joe’s Challenge Bowl was awarded to the Green Man in recognition of all their support of the ‘In Bloom’ campaign and the Civic Pride Shield was presented to Christine Oliver for all the support she continues to give Wimborne in Bloom, much of it now in the background.
