If you have not heard the results of the entry of Tutbury into the 2012 National Heart of England Campaign for the second time, then read on!

Tutbury was awarded a Silver Gilt for the second time on 13th September 2012 at a ceremony held in Kings Heath, attended by Janice Sherratt, Sue Norris and Malcolm Wardle. The Heart of England Judges made the following comments:

Tutbury goes from strength to strength, in only its second year the Bloom Team has thrived and clearly here to stay. A town that is in its 20th year of open gardens has somewhat of a pedigree - it has been hiding from Heart of England in Bloom far too long!’

‘Tutbury Museum - how can so much information and so much community activity take place in such a tiny place?

And we are now famous for having ‘The smallest wildflower meadow in Staffordshire at Richard Wakefield School.’

Having missed out on being awarded a “gold” by the narrowest of margins we are more determined than ever to go for “Gold” in 2013.  We are sure we can build on the momentum generated by the Olympic Games!  In addition to GOING FOR GOLD our aims for 2013 in no particular order are:

So please, please do support us in 2013.  We now have some of our own equipment such as litter pickers and high-viz vests.  So if you see people out in all weathers wearing high-viz vests bearing the “In Bloom” logo they are not undertaking community service they are helping “their” community!  

We are very proud of what we have achieved so far with very limited resources.  It just shows what can be done in co-operation with others and making it fun too!
