Hayle takes the SWTA Cup again!

At the award ceremony for the South West in Bloom competition on 17 September 2009 we heard that we had swept the board!

In the morning session the Neighbourhood Awards were announced and we won all three that we had submitted:

  • The Library Garden
  • Adopt-a-Plot Scheme
  • The Millpond

We were also delighted to hear that Emma Coster of the Hayle Community School won first prize for her painting in the 12-16 year old category.

The big news was in the afternoon session when it was announced that we had achieved:


And then, to crown it all, we were again awarded the SWTA cup as best in our group.

Finally, there was a 'discretionary award' and cup and this went to the Library Wildlife Garden.

Well done everyone - we couldn't have done much better that this.

South West in Bloom Awards

20 September 2007

Thirty-three members of Hayle in Bloom attended the awards ceremony which, for the very first time, was held at the Tregenna Castle Hotel at St. Ives.  The weather was damp and dismal; such a shame for the 350 people who attended from many towns in Cornwall and up to Bristol and beyond.

After a 'Cornish-style' buffet lunch the presentations began.

Here are the cups waiting to be awarded
Our first good news was a Neighbourhood Award, Certificate of Merit for the Millpool Gardens. Congratulations to Georgina Schofield and her team and to the PDC gardeners.
And the big news was that we have taken the GOLD in South West Tourist Association Cup category for the second year running.  We did not snag the cup this year - that went to Sherbourne.  Having visited Sherbourne recently I can confirm that they put on a beautiful show and are deserving winners.  But - we can beat them next year!
Watch the welcome by PDC Chair Joan Tanner and the announcement of the award.
