STROUD has once again won gold for its beautiful blooms.
Stroud In Bloom won gold at a presentation ceremony at Drayton Manor Park, Tamworth on Friday.
In the judges comments book of which every entry receives a copy, the judges wrote the following about Stroud: "On a gloriously sunny day the judges were greeted by members of the committee and the ever so enthusiastic town crier.
"The tour started in Stratford park and it did not disappoint.
"The edible gardening theme was very much in evidence throughout the tour from both young and old alike. Surely no other entry will have done more
"The maturing 'adopt a plot' sites brighten up otherwise barren land. The many wildflower borders throughout the town were viewed and in time will mature very nicely.
"Excellent partnerships are being formed with all local authorities and numerous business outlets, along with the increasing number of conservation groups. A very well deserved Gold."
Areas of achievement were:
Much improved hanging baskets in Stratford Park
Floral containers on railings on Dr Newton's Way
Excellent front garden at Field Road
Numerous wildflower areas on the route
Park benches made of recycled materials
The RHS Edible Garden theme was very much in evidence throughout the route.
The certificate will be on display along with numerous portfolios from previous years at the annual general meeting which will be held in the Wesley Room at St Alban's Church, Parliament Street, Stroud on Monday, October 28 at 7.30pm.
Stroud also won gold last year.
