Radstock win Gold in Britain in Bloom

Congratulations to all those involved in Radstock in Bloom. We have been awarded a Gold Medal again this year, a reward for the town’s efforts and community spirit.
Special thanks to Zoe Parfitt and her helpers from year’s 8 and 9 last July who hosted the judges while many of us were away in Rwanda. I have heard that the judges were immensely impressed by all of you.
I am proud that pupils make such a strong contribution to the local community effort.
The Orchid Project was also awarded an Outstanding in the ‘It’s your neighbourhood’ category.
