Buxton in Bloom Prize Winners!

Once again this year, we entered Buxton in Bloom and once again, we came away with some prizes!
The theme for this year’s competition was ‘Ruby red and Buxton blue with a splash of orange running through’ in celebration of 40 years’ of the Buxton International Festival, 40 years’ of the Buxton Festival Fringe and the reopening of the Buxton Crescent Thermal Spa and Hotel. It was great to get involved in a competition that commemorated some of the biggest occasions in the Buxton calendar.
We were so pleased to win first place in the ‘Best Commercial Garden’ category and to be announced as third place in the ‘Flower Person’ category for our flowerpot people which many of you may have seen in our garden. Our residents worked extremely hard in the garden, completely transforming two large areas. Although it was a team effort, there are two ladies who worked particularly hard – Marguerita and Maureen. They are pictured collecting their prizes at the awards ceremony held at the Buxton Bandstand on 8th September.
