Press Release – South West in Bloom
The green-fingered gardeners of Devizes are again celebrating this week after taking home a gold award in the South West in Bloom competition for the fourth year running.
Members of the ‘In Bloom’ committee received the award from BBC’s Big Allotment Challenge judge Jim Buttress at a presentation ceremony held at Trowbridge. Mr Buttress, head judge for ‘Britain in Bloom’ for 25 years, was delighted at the standard of floral displays, gardens and parks across Devizes.
The efforts of all involved in the ‘In Bloom’ competition will be recognised by the Mayor of Devizes Sarah Bridewell at a special celebration event held at the Town Hall this week.
Cllr Mrs Bridewell, who is also a Friend of Hillworth Park, was thrilled that the park received a gold award for the second year running. She said: “The team are already working on next year’s displays to ensure Hillworth Park holds onto its reputation as one of the best green areas in the country.”
Wansdyke School, Drews Pond Wood Project, Waiblingen Way Resident’s Association and Roundway Parish Allotments Group were all recognised as outstanding in the It’s Your Neighbourhood Award category.
The Richmond Fellowship – Greenacres Garden and Observatory, Cornerstones, Nursteed School and Downland School also received awards in the same category, which supports community groups in greening up their immediate local environment.

Registered Charity No 1073127
The Trust provide a Courtesy Home Security Service for older, vulnerable and disadvantaged people in Swindon and Wiltshire, who have become, or are at risk of becoming victims of house crime or domestic abuse.
Our Operators drive Police marked vehicles and dress as Police Support staff, their salaries, the security equipment we use and their vehicles are all funded by the Trust.
Once we have been contacted, an appointment is made by the Bobby Van Administrator for an Operator to visit homes and conduct a full security survey and fire risk assessment. With the agreement of the client, appropriate devices are installed to secure the property. Time is spent offering reassurance to clients and advice is given on how to protect against house crime. Often the fear of crime is as damaging as the crime itself.
We offer talks to community groups and clubs in a pro-active approach to securing homes for all over 60s or those vulnerable due to a disability.
