A Blooming Marvellous Day

Residents and businesses of Rhuddlan were out in force on the 1st August to showcase the Town in all its glory for the Britain in Bloom Award. Blodeuo Rhuddlan Bloom are already Gold Award winners of Wales in Bloom for 2016 and 2017 and have reached the finals for Britain in Bloom 2018.

Two Judges from Britain in Bloom visited Rhuddlan and were given a typical warm Rhuddlan Welcome. Over 22 local organisations and many individuals worked extremely hard putting in a lot of voluntary hours to get the Town immaculate.

The Chairman of Blodeuo, also the Mayor of Rhuddlan, Cllr Gareth Rowlands said that everybody had done a fantastic job and reiterated words from the Royal Horticultural Society that it was important to enjoy the event and to remember that it is a huge achievement to have made it to the UK Finals and that whatever the result, communities are doing a sterling job of engaging the community in horticulture and the environment.”

The results for Wales in Bloom will be announced on September 14th and the results for Britain in Bloom will be announced in October 19th.

Blooming Gorgeous Floristry officially opened its doors with ribbon cutting by Cllr Gareth Rowlands, the Mayor of Rhuddlan.

The business started from the home and garage of Ed Furber and his partner Peter Fletcher, and very quickly grew big enough to open a shop in Rhuddlan. “We’ve had a great response from the locals of Rhuddlan. We chose Rhuddlan as it is a very attractive place with an up and coming small high street, along with the success of Wales in Bloom and this year competing in Britain in Bloom, it was a no brainer. We really enjoy becoming part of the community and building relationships with our returning customers.

We also support the royal British legion as my partner Pete is soon to become a veteran after serving for 21 years in the British army, in this we offer a 10% discount to all serving personnel and veterans of the forces and emergency services!.”

The Mayor stated “it’s great that new shops are opening in Rhuddlan. It shows that Rhuddlan is a thriving and developing town and that the Wales in Bloom success was a deciding factor for Ed and Peter to set up a business in Rhuddlan is a great credit to all the volunteers, groups and societies that have helped make this possible”.
