Newport Pagnell Town Council is delighted that the town has moved up a step to achieve a Silver Gilt award in this year’s Britain in Bloom.
In addition, the schools came into their own this year, receiving two commendations, one for Tickford Park School, and a high commendation for Green Park School, and a Special Award, given as a one-off, to Ousedale School for their Eco-centre.
In presenting the award the judges commented “Newport Pagnell is a town full of drive and enthusiasm and it is this that impressed the judges. There is an active community across the age spectrum, all contributing for the overall benefit of the community.” They added that the new baskets and tubs provided by the Town Council this year do much to enhance the High Street.
The Town Council’s thanks go to the volunteers all over the town and the Newport Pagnell Partnership. If you would like to know more about being involved in the preparations for next year’s entry please contact Newport Pagnell Town Council on 01908 618756.
