In case you missed it the Radstock In Bloom team have won Gold in the annual floral competition, beating tougher and bigger towns to win the coveted award.

They were officially awarded their certificate last week at an In Bloom ceremony which right until the last minute was not certain to be going ahead due to coronavirus.

But Sean Fletcher from Radstock In Bloom was at the Winter Gardens to get the award - and a flag which is now hanging on the flagpole at the centre of Radstock. (We just need a bit of wind now)

The main speaker at the event was top garden designer James Alexander-Sinclair who is a judge at the Chelsea Flower show.

Other nominations Radstock received at the Southwest in Bloom presentation :
Burford Cup
Youth Community Project
Writhlington Orchid project
Clem Preece Cup:

St Nicholas school
Denise James Cup:
