On Wednesday 20th September the Village in Bloom committee travelled to
Gatwick to attend the South and South East of England awards. We had no
expectations as this was our first entry, but were excited to sit down with
The awards are given in the following categories, Highly Commended, Bronze,
Silver, SilverGilt and Gold. Only the main awards are given at the ceremony.
We watched as castles, towns and stately homes received their awards. After
luncheon it was time for large villages. It was with huge pride that
Village in Bloom Titchfield were awarded a SilverGilt and two members of the
committee received it on behalf of the village.
Congratulations to everyone who took part, helped and supported. Our
village has become one of two receiving SilverGilt, there were no Gold
awards in this category. It was also announced that coming in on a
SilverGilt was a force to be reckoned with.
The Committee are now ready to carry on and aim for Gold next year . We will
let you know if we have any result in the Borough awards on the 27th.
Thank you and well done everyone !
