This year has seen Stanley Town Council’s first entry in the Northumbria in Bloom competition in the large town category. As we shared earlier, some of the groups and organisations we worked with this year received their own recognition in Northumbria in Bloom as well as being a part of the town’s overall submission.
St Josephs School in Stanley received a GOLD award in the Schools category; the Just for Women Centre has received a SILVER award in the Special Awards category and PACT House Stanley has received a BRONZE in the Commercial Premises category! Copper Beech community garden in White le Head received a SILVER award and the Town was awarded an overall SILVER.
There were also special mentions for the Haven, Catchgate Partnership and Annfield Plain Infants school in the “It’s your neighbourhood” category
These are fantastic results Congratulations to all our partners who worked with us to deliver our In Bloom entry this year and brighten up the town.
This is a great achievement for our first entry and the fact that so many of our partners also received separate recognition is a great thing for our communities.
