Llandudno in Bloom awards ceremony takes place

A TOWN council were delighted to be able to host their Llandudno in Bloom Awards Ceremony in person.

This took place at Llandudno Town Hall on September 28.

Entries came from a variety of categories; guesthouses, hotels, pubs, friends groups and community centres and a high number of private garden entries, a sign that lockdown created a community of green fingered residents.

Cllr Louise Emery, chairman of Llandudno in Bloom, said: “The standard was very high with many gold awards given out, but it was a special year for the private garden entry for Barbara Jennison and Howard Jones from West Shore who were not only overall winner at the Llandudno in Bloom Awards, but also won best private garden from all the entries across Wales – an outstanding achievement.

“We are very much looking forward to next year’s competition.”

After a one-year, covid enforced break, Wales in Bloom returned this year and the relaxing of restrictions allowed gardeners and volunteers to produce some spectacular floral displays across Wales.

The class for Coastal Communities saw Llandudno secure a “magnificent” gold award and first place.

Barbara and Howard secured Garden of the Year; every single plant was grown to its fullest potential.
