1964 winners scoop more accolades in the 50th anniversary awards
Bath was there right at the beginning of the Britain in Bloom story – winning the first competition back in 1964. And fittingly, it has continued to be a Britain in Bloom winner by taking the Small City title in the 50th anniversary 2014 awards.
The RHS judges said of Bath in Bloom, which also scooped a Gold award: ‘Bath has been an entry into the UK Finals from the beginning of Britain in Bloom, and therefore also celebrates 50 years this year. Although Bath has always been known as a floral city, it now embraces the community spirit that is so important to the success of the ongoing campaign. With a chairman who has a passion for his city and the Bloom campaign, and a parks department with years of experience in delivering high-quality horticultural displays, Bath’s place in Bloom history is assured.’
Barry Cruse, MBE, Chairman of the Bath in Bloom committee, said: 'This is a fantastic and well deserved result for Baths community groups, Parks department and the many volunteers who have worked so hard not only in this special 50th anniversary year but every year. I am absolutely delighted.'
