Bill Wiggin, MP for North Herefordshire, has today spoken of his delight after Leominster achieved a Gold award in this year’s Heart of England In Bloom competition.

Commenting Bill said:

“I am thrilled for the Leominster in Bloom team that all of their hard work and dedication has been rewarded with a richly deserved Gold award.

The competition is always fierce, but our entrants not only make our beautiful market towns even prettier, but they do so much to showcase the wonderful community focused nature of the good people of Herefordshire.

While this year’s event was online, the portfolio submitted by the team reflected just how much effort has gone into this throughout the year, including a celebration of Earth Day and a wonderful tribute to our NHS workers.

I offer my heartfelt congratulations to all involved in achieving this excellent result.”
