Councillor Malcolm Bray and Twyford Together representative Paul Cassidy attended today’s Thames and Chilterns in Bloom awards ceremony where Twyford was awarded the Silver Gilt for their in bloom efforts along with being announced winners of the Regional Heritage Award for the second year running.
The Judges provided the following feedback following their visit to Twyford in July:
The efforts of all involved in the bloom initiative were evident throughout the tour, while the volunteers’ dedication and commitment were a highlight of this lovely bloom entry. The support of the Parish Council is pivotal in ensuring that this high level of support is maintained, with Twyford and the community benefiting from this dedication.
New initiatives such as the wheelbarrow competition and the Coronation Labyrinth are two projects which have ensured that bloom continues to engage within the community, while the tree planting scheme at Stanlake Copse brings both ecological and social benefits, enhancing the town’s biodiversity.
It is wonderful to see the positive impact that bloom is having on Twyford and, with the momentum gained over the past year, the initiative can and will continue to enhance this beautiful town.
Councillor Malcolm Bray commented

Many thanks and huge congratulations to all those involved.
