Randalstown to compete in 2017 RHS Britain in Bloom Awards
13 February 2017
Randalstown has been selected to represent the Ulster region in the 2017 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Britain in Bloom UK Finals.
Joining 78 other Britain in Bloom finalists, the picturesque town will complete to be crowned one of the cleanest, greenest and most beautiful places in the UK.
Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor John Scott commented; “I am delighted that Randalstown has been selected for this prestigious competition. It is truly well deserved and testament to the hard work of the Tidy Randalstown Environmental Group and the Parks Department who put so much into enhancing and preserving our outdoor spaces, making Britain a more beautiful place to live.”
Councillor Scott continues; “We look forward to welcoming the RHS Britain in Bloom judges to Randalstown in August as we bid to win this coveted award.”
Now in its 53rd year, Britain in Bloom has evolved into a UK wide campaign that brings communities together while promoting the environmental and health and well-being benefits of gardening. Each of the Ulster finalists were chosen for their commitment to environmental responsibility, their high levels of community participation and their outstanding gardening achievements.
The winners will be announced at the Britain in Bloom awards ceremony in Llandudno, North Wales on 27 October 2017.
