Some 80+ people enjoyed a light-hearted but very informative talk from the new owners of Woottens Nursery at the Cut on Tuesday evening, 14 November.
Just some of the award winners are pictured. In addition Best in Category winners were able to take home and keep for a year some very beautiful glass bowl trophies, donated and individually engraved by Halesworth's very own award-winning glass engraver, Lesley Pyke. It was a lovely occasion to acknowledge the work of individuals and businesses, both in making our market town one that continues to draw new visitors, as well as delight all of us who live and work here; also to mark the tremendous contribution of Tamsyn Imison whose posthumous award for her hugely significant contribution to Halesworth in Bloom was accepted by Stephanie Hammond on behalf of Michael Imison who unfortunately could not be present.
The work of Halesworth in Bloom volunteers continues, if at a somewhat gentler pace as we draw to the year's end. However, bulb planting, maintaining the Thoroughfare planters, planting plans for the new Wherry outline in the town park, these have been a few of the things on the agenda this month. If you'd like to join us to help us, now, or to make a flying start next Spring, or would like to know a bit more about Halesworth in Bloom, you'll find lots of information and photos on halesworthinbloom.com or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org (note, not gmail.com but mail.com)
And for a constant reminder of Halesworth's gardening talent throughout 2018, why not get or give the first ever HiB calendar, photographed by HiB volunteer Anita Gonzales and currently available at "Number Seven Hair" on the Market Place and “Edwards" Restaurant. ALL monies raised will be going directly to "Halesworth in Bloom" to help continue the wonderful work and projects going on in our beautiful town.
