Success for Christchurch in South & South East in Bloom
CHRISTCHURCH Borough Council has come away with a Silver Gilt Award in the Small Coastal Town category in this year’s South & South East in Bloom Awards.
Christchurch also won a Gold Award for Stanpit Marsh Nature Reserve in the Conservation Area category while the Friends of Christchurch Station received a ‘Thriving’ commendation in the “It’s Your Neighbourhood” category.
The judges for the In Bloom awards, Ken Turner and Kelvin Mason, were shown around the Borough in July when their visit included Mudeford Quay, Steamer Point Nature Reserve, Highcliffe Castle, the Juniper Centre Allotments at the Fire Station, Christchurch Quay, New Zealand Gardens, Stanpit Marsh, Christchurch Station and Druitt Gardens.
At the time the judges commented how Christchurch was a well-respected and looked-after town and how impressed they were by the number of volunteers involved in the different organisations.

Councillor Margaret Phipps, portfolio holder for environment at Christchurch Council, said: “This is another great achievement which shows how the Council working in partnership with members of the community can really make the town look its best. This summer we have also seen how the beautiful wild flowers we planted at various sites have received many positive remarks. I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in making sure Christchurch continues to look so attractive.”
