Bill Wiggin, MP for North Herefordshire, has today spoken of his delight after both Leominster and Ledbury achieved a Gold award in this year’s Heart of England In Bloom competition.

Commenting Bill said:

“I am thrilled for the teams at Leominster in Bloom and Ledbury in Bloom that all of their hard work and dedication has been rewarded with these richly deserved Gold awards.

The competition is always fierce, but our entrants not only make our beautiful market towns even prettier, but they do so much to showcase the wonderful community focused nature of the good people of Herefordshire.

While this year’s event was online, the portfolios submitted by the team reflected just how much effort has gone into this throughout the year, including touching tributes to our NHS workers.

I offer my heartfelt congratulations to all involved from the two teams who achieved this excellent result.”
