Bradford Blooms

Bradford Blooms judging took place on 22nd and 23rd July 2010. There were many fabulous entries.

This year’s competition run by Bradford on Avon Town Council attracted over forty entries in the business and domestic sections.

The business section was judged by Paul Alexander, Head Gardener at The Courts in Holt, whilst the schools and residential section benefitted from the expertise of local flower arranger, Ann Narraway.

The Town Clerk, Diane Holmes said “it was good to see such an effort being made with gardeners having to cope with prolonged dry weather conditions. We were particularly pleased to see so many shop window entries.”

The presentation takes place in St Margaret’s Hall on Sunday 12th September 2010 at 3p.m.

It is not too late to put your entry in the Flower Show, which also takes place in the hall on the 12th September 2010. Details can be downloaded on the Town Council website here

Here are a few entries:

Footbridge Review

The Town Council's Cable Stay footbridge has received planning permission from Wiltshire Council but the bridge is now being reviewed as a result of a public poll. The review is independent of the Town Council and includes all stakeholders.

In the mean time engineers have been instructed to proceed with foundations which would be suitable for a range of bridges. This decision has been made so that the chance of a bridge is not lost due to difficulties in installing foundations after building work by Linden Homes on the Kingston Mill site is complete.

Victory Field Solution

A green container was delivered today to replace the two sheds which have been the subject of repeated vandalism over recent years. The container houses sports and grounds maintenance equipment for the Victory Field.

The sheds went to a good home as they were taken by volunteers to the community farm on Bath Road.
