Sun Shines for Britain in Bloom Judges
After a sunny tour around the town in a pimped up Uppingham School minibus, the Judges were treated to a splendid lunch at the Uppingham Cricket Club prepared by Bloom committee members. The Mayor, Dave Ainslie, welcomed the Judges and thanked all the Volunteers for their hard work in making the town look fabulous. Representatives from Uppingham School Grounds Team, the WI, Rotary, Uppingham Town Council, Rutland County Council, and past and present committee members of Uppingham in Bloom enjoyed homemade treats. The results of the National competition will be announced at the award ceremony on October 16th. The regional award ceremony, hosted by Us this year at Rutland Water Golf Club on September 16th, will be when we find out if we have done enough to retain our Gold Standard from last year.
