Best of blooming luck

Judging underway

It’s been a big day for Bath – and its floral reputation – as judging got underway for the South-West in Bloom competition in which the city is hoping to be crowned ‘Champion of Champions.’

For all the volunteers involved in the Bath In Bloom organisation – and for B&NES Park’s Department, Bath BID and the Southgate Shopping Centre, today’s visit by Terry Porter from the Royal Horticultural Society is the culmination of all their effort to present the city at its floral best.
