Tiverton in Bloom Gold Award



FOR the first time in the 50-year history of Britain in Bloom, Tiverton has scooped a prestigious gold award for the South West region. 

The award is the climax of years of work to achieve the much sought-after status. 

Members of the Tiverton committee who attended the South West In Bloom awards ceremony in Trowbridge were overjoyed by their success. Councillor Wally Burke, chairman of Tiverton in Bloom said: "I was absolutely delighted. I would like to thank the committee, helpers, sponsors and the public who supported us." 

Cllr Burke also received a standing ovation and recognition for his contribution to South West in Bloom over more than two decades, while collecting the Jon Wheatley trophy for the best business park. 

Tiverton narrowly lost out to Falmouth, which was named the overall winner in the Portman Cup category which Tiverton was in.
