£1,759 lottery boost is 'blooming' great for Highbridge group

Supporters and members of Highbridge In Bloom are celebrating this week after learning they have scooped a National Lottery funding grant of £1,759.

The money has been awarded by Awards for All, a Lottery grants scheme which supports small, community-based projects across the UK.

Pam Lyes, one of the group's delighted members, told the money will be spent on four new planting cauldrons for Alpha House Gardens.

"It's wonderful news," she said. "We filled in a long form and had to explain the community benefits but it was all worth it. We'll now be able to put on an even more colourful display of flowers in the gardens this year."

Last year, the Britain In Bloom judges were impressed when they visited Highbridge (pictured below) for the first time and the town won a coveted silver gilt award.
