Milton Keynes is one of the most beautiful places in the region – and that’s official.
Our city picked up the Silver Gilt Award at the Thames and Chilterns in Bloom Regional Award presentations yesterday .
Dignitaries from across the Thames and Chilterns region, lined up to see the gongs being handed out.
The annual Britain in Bloom campaign is the largest horticultural event in Europe, attracting over 2,000 entries from cities, towns and villages across the country.
The aim is to encourage and celebrate local communities improving their local environments.
Wolverton& Greenleys was a double winner, being crowned with the Silver Gilt Award (trophy winner) for urban communities and the Regional Award for Heritage.
The, It’s Your Neighbourhood, category also recognised a number of local groups which have made their members’ lives a more beautiful place.
Stony Stratford North End Pond Project, Netherfield Environment Team, Tinkers Bridge Residents Association and The Mount Garden Group all received commendations.
Ted Smith, chairman of Thames and Chilterns in Bloom said: “We were delighted by the very high standard across the region.”
