I would like to thank everyone who has helped Nelson In Bloom, over the past 12 months, in readiness for our first ever visit from the North-West In Bloom judges.

As a relatively new group, we have a long way to go to catch up with our neighbouring towns and villages, however, the support from local businesses, council officers, voluntary organisations, schools and the residents of Nelson has been fantastic.

Our volunteers have dedicated an amazing amount of time, weeding, digging and planting and although we are not expecting to win any prizes in our first year, the community spirit which has been shown in Nelson is a reward in itself.
