Manchester Withington MP Jeff Smith visited the Didsbury in Bloom team today as theycompete in the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) Britain in Bloom 2018 competition.
Last year Didsbury village was a gold medal winner in the RHS Britain in Bloom national finals and was proclaimed the best urban community in the UK. This year, Didsbury is competing for the ‘Champion of Champions’ title, alongside just 5 other entries.
The entries are assessed against three core pillars – horticultural achievement, environmental responsibility, and community participation. Didsbury’s entry stretches across the village, from Didsbury Park to Fletcher Moss.
Commenting at the judging, Jeff said:
“It’s great to see Didsbury village looking so vibrant today, especially after a period of extraordinarily hot and dry weather.
Congratulations to all the tireless volunteers who work all year round to make Didsbury a beautiful place to live. I’m hoping that the judges make the right decision later this month!”
