Wednesfield in Bloom – Gets Praise from City Councils Top Official!

Mr Keith Ireland City of Wolverhampton Managing Director had this to say in his weekly briefing for Councillors tonight!  All I will say is that it is really good that so much focus is being placed on our Volunteers…..Wednesfield is a real ‘top notch’ place. Keith Ireland said “Wednesfield in Bloom: Today, I was delighted to speak at the Wednesfield in Bloom seminar held at the St Thomas Church Centre. Other speakers included Simon Archer, Wednesfield in Bloom Chairman and James Clarke, Hands on Wednesfield Chairman. The seminar was a chance to congratulate volunteer community groups ‘Wednesfield in Bloom’ and ‘Hands on Wednesfield’ who have seen recent success in competition, winning the Silver Award in the 2016 ‘Heart of England in Bloom’ Urban Community competition, and the Gold Award in 2017. It also explained to guests how Wednesfield has gone about competing in the competition and what the challenge has done for the local community. Wednesfield is set to be the focus of an episode of the new BBC Show ‘Britain in Bloom, tonight, on BBC 2 at 6:30pm. The show follows fifteen different communities from across the country as they prepare to compete for gold in the Royal Horticultural Society’s prestigious ‘Britain in Bloom’ competition. I’m sure all Councillors will join me in wishing Wednesfield good luck at the next competition, and I would like to encourage you all to watch the BBC2 programme tonight.”
