Bury has scooped yet another Gold award and won the Britain in Bloom North West Small City category for the 15th year in a row, thanks once again to an all-around community effort. Bury also received the Environmental Award for local authorities, a discretionary award given by the judges to credit the cleanliness of the town and the general high quality and cleanliness of the parks. And, for the 8th time since 2005, judges nominated Bury to represent the North West region in the 2019 Britain in Bloom national finals. On top of Bury’s success, Radcliffe entered in the Best Large Town category and clinched a Silver-Gilt award for the fourth year running; and Clarence Park, entered in the RHS Park Awards, also came away with a Silver-Gilt. All the awards were announced at a ceremony in Southport on Friday 2 November.
