We are a group of volunteers who work to make our town a great environment to live in!
ST IVES in BLOOM received its third ANGLIA IN BLOOM “GOLD AWARD” at a ceremony in Bury St Edmunds on 12th September. Pictured below are Moreen Wells (Vice Chair), Linda Croucher (Chair) and Julie Pepper – holding all our certificates at once!The Judges visited St Ives on 5th JULY, and the long wait for results has been worth it! As well as the gold award for the town as a whole, we collected certificates for Gerald Brunning’s award winning allotment in the ‘Grow Your Own’ category; Holt Island in the ‘Conservation Project’ category; and the top area award for The Swan and Angel in the restaurant category!
Pictured in the Norris Museum garden are (from left to right) Moreen Wells with Joan Gibson (Anglia in Bloom), Julia Smith (Anglia in Bloom), Tim Drye (Mayor), and Linda Croucher.
