Wimborne in Bloom prizegiving
WIMBORNE in Bloom’s annual prizegiving took place on Saturday at Allenbourn Middle School.
It was split into two events - the first for all the schools involved with the junior sections of the Art and Poetry Competitions and secondly for the adults, again in the Art and Poetry Competitions and also the main Wimborne in Bloom competition. The Chairman of Wimborne in Bloom, Richard Nunn presented the prizes for the Junior Sections with the Mayor, Councillor Andy Hampton, presenting the prizes to the adults. Local nurseries and garden centres around the area provided garden vouchers to be spent at their centres for the main competition with Wimborne in Bloom providing prizes for the winners in the Junior Art and Poetry Competitions. Mrs Pam Perry continued her support by sponsoring the adult Poetry Competition which her late husband Councillor John Perry sponsored when he was Town Mayor.
All prizewinners received a certificate, produced and donated by Moose International, Wimborne Town Lodge. The main competition winners also received trophies.
Moose International donated £600 towards the cost of new planters.
