Stourbridge's Bloom campaign scoops another gold gong
12:25pm Monday 17th September 2012 in Local
STOURBRIDGE has won yet another gold award in the Heart of England in Bloom campaign.
The accolade - the town’s fifth gold - was awarded to organiser David Harcourt at a ceremony last Thursday (September 13) in Kings Heath, Birmingham.
Mr Harcourt said he was “delighted” with the win - particularly as the town has been disrupted this year due to ongoing works on the old Crown Centre site which is being transformed into a massive Tesco superstore.
Judge Mike Garwood said during this year’s visit to the town that he was pleased to see “work in progress” and the development had only left a “good impression” on himself and fellow judge Nicola Clarke who was particularly complimentary about Stourbridge’s voluntary groups and their efforts to spruce up the town.
