HEART of England in Bloom judges have revealed some of the secret’s of Upton’s success.
As we reported, members of the Upton in Bloom team are celebrating a 10th gold award in a row in the competition, as well as the title of overall winner in the large village category.
Following the results ceremony earlier this month, judges Robin Russell and Ken Whittaker have released feedback from their visit to Upton this summer.
They give particular praise to Upton’s well-maintained public areas and say they were very impressed by the efforts of residents at Thomas Morris House in William Tennant Way to grow their own vegetables.
Your Malvern Gazette is even credited with helping Upton’s success – the judges noting the “local press coverage on judging day but also throughout the year”. Upton in Bloom’s chairman Jackie Surtees believes this year’s displays were among the town’s best ever and credited “a lot of hard work by just a few people”.
