Redditch Goes Four Gold
Redditch Borough Council has proved to have gold-fingers after
scooping top marks for the fourth year running in the Heart of
England in Bloom Awards.
The gold award was given to the Council
earlier today by judges at a ceremony in Shrewsbury.
Judges visited the Borough in July where they
took in Church Green, Where Next Nursery, Forge Mill Museum, Arrow
Valley Park, and Headless Cross Green. They had lunch with the
campaign sponsors and key town representatives at the Palace
Portfolio-holder for Environment Cllr
Debbie Taylor said: “While receiving this gold award for
the fourth year running is absolutely fabulous, you only have to
look at the Borough to see that we really keep going from strength
to strength when it comes to making it bloom.
“Once again the hard work of all staff and
members, despite dwindling Government grants, has paid off and, as
well as winning a national award, we have created a beautiful
Borough for everyone to enjoy and be proud of."
