I am delighted that Willaston has won the silver gilt award for the first time ever in the 'Small Town' category of the North West Britain in Bloom competition. This is just the latest of many successes in the annual competition. The village was up against some very stiff competition and did remarkably well.
I pay tribute to the Willaston in Bloom committee, led by Cllr. Wayne Lewis and supported by Cllr John Flackett and the many other volunteers on the Committee. Also thanks are due to all those many householders who have such magnificent floral displays in their gardens and to the Parish Council and others who helped fund the cost of the wonderful floral beds and other exhibits in the village.
There is a wonderful community spirit in Willaston and this award is fully justified. Many local groups flourish in Willaston and it is an excellent, beautiful and friendly place to live.
