[07 SEP 98] RUGBY BOROUGH COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Britain In Bloom

Rugby came second and was highly commended in the Regional Large Towns Section of Britain in Bloom. The results were announced on Friday 4 September at a ceremony held in Solihull.

Rugby also won a special trophy, "The Heart of England Tourist Board Outstanding Achievement Trophy", for Caldecott Park.

The judges commented on Rugby's entry:

"Rugby is making good progress in Britain in Bloom and has every prospect of establishing itself as one of the front runners.

There were some nice residential gardens and village scenes. There was a good contribution from hotels, public houses and restaurants. There was a commendable effort from the Fire Station.

Caldecott Park was even more impressive with horticulture of the highest standard which would hold its own against anywhere in the region."

The Mayor of Rugby, Councillor Hazel Bell said:

"I am delighted that we came second and won this special trophy. I would like to thank all the local people, schools and groups and businesses who supported Rugby's entry into Britain in Bloom. I very much hope that even more people will take part next year so that we can win the competition."

The section was won by Stafford with Leamington Spa third.
