Golden-touch Jackie to stay
2:00pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
A STALWART In Bloom campaigner has been persuaded not to hang up her gardening gloves.
Upton in Bloom’s longserving chairman Jackie Surtees, who has been involved in the group since it was formed in 2004, had decided to stand down after almost a decade of unbroken success.
After steering Upton to eight overall wins in the large village category of the Heart of England in Bloom competition in the last 10 years, Mrs Surtees had said it was time for someone else to have a go.
But at Upton in Bloom’s annual meeting last week, Mrs Surtees announced she had been convinced to carry on getting her hands dirty for a while longer.
She said she has “got her enthusiasm back” after taking a well-earned break after overseeing Upton’s latest gold-winning In Bloom entry this summer. Upton in Bloom is always on the lookout for new members to add to its small but hard-working team of volunteers.
Anyone interested can call Mrs Surtees on 01684 592336.
