After a a low level of interest in 2015 Malmesbury Town Council took a break from the Malmesbury in Bloom Gardening competition in 2016, but this year Malmesbury in Bloom returned with a flourish and a brand new category - the 'Super Gardener'! The Super Gardener Cup (sponsored by the Malmesbury Garden Centre) is awarded to the gardener who has overcome the limitations of disability or impairment to keep their garden growing bright and beautiful.

 

Winners in all categories gathered at Malmesbury Town Hall on Friday night to receive certificates and cups from Mayor Wayne Jones and competition judge Lisa Gore. Lisa, who is one of the winners of Malmesbury's 'Citizen of the Year' award, created the new Super Gardener category to acknowledge the dedication and hard work she saw while judging the entrants' gardens this year.
