Brandon in Bloom scoops RHS awards

Brandon in Bloom has received two awards from Britain in Bloom for their work across the town this year.

Britain in Bloom, which is part of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), has awarded Brandon with a Certificate of Recognition along with a Certificate for Inspiring Others.

The certificates are issued by Britain in Bloom in association with Anglia in Bloom.

Kay Clark, RHS Community Development Manager, said: "This year an amazing sense of community spirit has enabled people to face the difficulties of this dreadful pandemic together.

"We know that people have felt closer to nature through lockdown and valued access to green space so much more, and we have heard that people are valuing your work more than ever before.

"At the RHS and the Bloom Regions and Nations we have been incredibly moved by your stories of courage, creativity and ingenuity in helping your wider communities through this time.

"We want to recognise how important you all are and how valuable your work is with certificates in 2020."

Rachel Sobiechowski, co-director of Brandon in Bloom CIC, said:

"I am so proud of our team of volunteers. Massive congratulations to you all, and thank you all for your continued hard work and dedication to making our town cleaner and brighter.

"It is a pleasure to work alongside you all. Here's looking forward to a brighter 2021."
