Anglia In Bloom Comes To Leighton Linslade
Judges scrutinised Leighton-Linslade’s entry into the Anglia in Bloom campaign last month, when two official judges walked the ‘route’ encompassing various sites across Leighton Buzzard and Linslade.
The day was a culmination of the ongoing effort of the Leighton–Linslade in Bloom volunteers, dedicated to making a difference in the town and raising much needed funds for charity.
Young Person’s Special Award
The route included visiting the Teenage Advice and Information Centre where the judges inspected the Young Person’s Special Award entry.
This was followed by a stroll through Peacock Mews to the High Street and into Parson’s Close to view the Town’s premier Parson’s Close Park, the Clipstone Brook conservation area and Pulford School where students spoke of their bee project.
‘Off the Rails’
The group was then lead over the waters to Linslade and to the mainline railway station to see another special award entry by ‘Off the Rails’ – the group of volunteers responsible for its beautiful floral displays.
The day was a complete success and so was the campaign, raising £1,663 for Willen Hospice. Funds were raised from plant stalls, open gardens, business sponsorship and individual donations for which the Town Council are extremely grateful.
The results of this year’s entry will be revealed after a presentation on7 September 2012.
