If you have ever walked down Church Street, Twickenham, then you will be most familiar with the beautiful floral displays that line the quaint, village street.
If you have ever given a passing thought as to what the displays are in aid of, you may be interested to know that each year, Church Street enters the Borough in Bloom competition. This is a competition that is simple to define, in that entrants receive awards based on their floral displays. If a Borough receives enough to garner attention, the next level up is London in Bloom.
Keeping track with where this is going, you will be quite interested and excited to know that Church Street and the Twickenham Town Centre have scooped up numerous awards for Richmond at London in Bloom. Not only that, but Richmond has been selected to represent London in Britain in Bloom 2011 - beating rival Gold Award Winner, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
This is truly an honour, further complimented by how fitting it is to have the Greenest Borough, in terms of parks and open spaces, competing. Thus, there will be much work to do in preparation and so we here from Church Street urge you to watch out for Blooming Displays next year!
