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.

Following numerous reports over several years from local residents about the dangers of walking along Whychurch Hill because of the volume of traffic and the number of unlawfully and inconsiderately parked vehicles, Malmesbury Town Council in conjunction with Wiltshire Highways and the Malmesbury Area Board have agreed a project to introduce a pedestrian safe route along this road.
From the 30th July you will be able to recycle even more plastic items in the blue lidded recycle bin. In addition to the usual plastic bottles and cardboard, you can include yoghurt pots, plastic trays (not black ones or plastic film), margarine tubs, ice cream tubs and also juice, milk and soup cartons.
Last opportunity to make your views known - Survey closes Saturday 30th June Malmesbury Town Council is seeking the views of residents, shops, businesses and visitors on a resident's suggestion that the area around the Market Cross should be pedestrianised.
