'Impressed' Britain In Bloom judges take tour of Highbridge

Two judges were 'blooming impressed' when they made a tour of Highbridge during their assessment of the town for the Britain In Bloom competition on Monday (July 19th).

Judges Tony Moore and John Bowden were given a guided tour of the town after being welcomed by the town's MP, Tessa Munt, Mayor Michael Clarke and County Councillor John Woodman, plus Highbridge In Bloom committee members, as pictured above.

The judges visited St John's School, Highbridge Children's Centre, Morland Hall, Apex Park, Lakeside, the allotments, Walrow fishing lakes, General Higgins House, the Community Centre, Jubilee Gardens and finished with lunch at Southwell House.

Pam Lyes, secretary of the group, told "It all went exceedingly well and we are quietly confident that we've done well. We won't know, though, until the results are announced in September."

"The judges were particularly impressed with the work carried out by the youngsters from Highbridge Dreamscheme, who have hung dozens of colourful hanging baskets along Church Street and Market Street."

"They really liked the new community garden at Morland Hall, and the work put in by the school and Children's Centre."

Jason Adams, who runs the Dreamscheme, added: "It was great to meet the judges, who were very enthusiastic about what the children have done. We were very happy to help make the town ready for the judges."

Both thanked Sedgemoor District Council, Burnham and Highbridge Town Council and the bloom sponsors for their help and support.
