After great success in winning the RHS Southwest in Bloom Ayre Cup, Radstock in Bloom held its annual presentation evening at Whistly Hall Radstock.

Children of Radstock Schools were invited back in April to take part in the South West in Bloom Art competition with a theme of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

We received over two hundred and fufty entries; these were then whittled down to forty eight finalists. From those forty eight, two were sent off to the South West in Bloom Competition.

We are pleased to announce that these two received awards from the RHS Southwest in Bloom for third place and runner up.

Jessica from Trinity Church School aged up to six years old got third place.

Hope (formerly of) Trinity Church School, aged up to eleven-years-old, received the runner up award.

Both were also the winners of the people's choice voted on by the public in Radstock Community Hub and Library.
