Tidy Randalstown prepare to fly the flag in National Royal Horticultural Society Britain in Bloom Co

13 April 2017

 

Tidy Randalstown has started preparing the town to look its best for this year’s Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Britain in Bloom Finals competition.

Randalstown is one of 79 finalists vying to win a coveted Gold medal and be crowned one of the cleanest, greenest and most beautiful places in the UK.

In August, Tidy Randalstown will lead RHS Britain in Bloom judges on a tour of their town. The winners will be announced at the Britain in Bloom awards ceremony in Llandudno, North Wales on Friday 27 October.

You will see the volunteers regularly around the town wearing their hi vis jackets, weeding, sweeping, planting and litter picking. They have just finished painting 50 new wooden barrels which will be on display with summer planting at the beginning of June.

Helen Boyd, Secretary of Tidy Randalstown said: “Our aim is to get the whole community involved, whether you’re a beginner gardener or a seasoned expert. Even just adding a few plants to your front garden, planting up a container or picking up litter on your street can make a big difference to making Randalstown a greener and more pleasant place to live.”
