Blooming marvellous appearance on TV

Britain in Bloom

Residents of Edgefield Green in Shrewsbury were featured on BBC Two this week as part of a new TV series.

They appeared on Britain in Bloom on Wednesday alongside celebrity presenter Chris Bavin (pictured far left) who helped them plant up their own sustainable garden.

Shrewsbury was featured in the series which is focusing on different communities from their first preparations for the competition right through to judging day itself.

Last summer, a film crew followed the progress of the town to see what it takes to enter the Royal Horticultural Society’s annual Britain in Bloom competitions.

Residents of Edgefield Green, which is managed by Care Plus, had a visit from judges to help celebrate more than a decade of successful gardening.

The judges dropped in at the retirement living community for refreshments while assessing the town’s efforts.

Following judging, Shrewsbury was awarded gold in the small city category at a presentation ceremony last September and was nominated to participate in the national Britain in Bloom competition this summer.
