A passer by views the Britain in Bloom Awards. Stony Stratford has been winning Britain in Bloom awards since 2008. These plaques are at the town Library in Church Street.
Stony in Bloom have done it again, with a Gold award from the Britain in Bloom judges.
Remember when I showed you the last watering of the year for Stony Stratford’s flowers? I photographed Alan Box, one of the Stony in Bloom volunteers who work to make Stony Stratford a more beautiful place to live.
They have much more to do more than just water a few plants; the Stony in Bloom folk are working all year round. They plant, weed, prune and tidy, and on the long hot dry days in the middle of the year, they water.
It’s always nice to get official recognition of your efforts, and Stony Stratford’s gardening volunteers have been receiving it since 2008.

Judging day for Britain in Bloom was Monday July 9th, but the town had to wait unti the awards ceremony on September 27th. They had already won the award when I met Alan Box on his watering round in October, but I didn’t see the plaques until last week. Oh well.
