PRESS RELEASE – South and South East in Bloom Awards 2018

The Town Council is delighted to be awarded Silver-Gilt again in the Town Centre category just announced at the prestigious regional awards ceremony.

 

There to collect the award on behalf of the Town was Mark Jeffries, Estates and Facilities Manager, who received the award at the Annex Centre in Brighton.

 

Mark Jeffries said; “It’s a great result for us. The team have done a fantastic job.”

 

This is only the second time New Milton has entered the competition, maintaining high standards in one of the Main Awards categories.

 

Town Clerk Graham Flexman described it as “a marvellous result in our second In Bloom contest – and thanks to all our ground staff on a magnificent achievement.”

 

Chairman of the Amenities Committee, Cllr Geoff Blunden, congratulated the ground staff for all the hard work and effort put in this year, especially bearing in mind the ground conditions and the exceptionally dry summer.

 

A great result all round!
