Two Judges from South and South East in Bloom, Derek Beer and Peter Holman, visited Wimborne on Thursday 11th July to judge the Town in the Regional in Bloom Competition. They were greeted at the Town Hall by the Mayor, Cllr Shane Bartlett, along with Chairman of Wimborne in Bloom, Richard Nunn and other members of the Wimborne in Bloom Committee.
Following a presentation on Wimborne in Bloom the judges went on a tour of the Town which included a visit to Wimborne First School and the site of the new School to see the building in progress and to hear about the plans for the grounds surrounding the building, a drive through the Allenview Estate, a walk along the River Allen and through Willow Walk to Crown Mead. They visited the Priest House Museum Garden and walked up the High Street to The Square, stopping to hear Town Crier Chris Brown giving them a welcome shout from the corner of the Minster Green. A visit then to the Leaze Allotments before culminating at the Model Town.
“All seemed to go according to plan”, commented Richard Nunn after the Judges had left but as normal they gave very little away and we shall have to wait until the middle of September for the results.
