Rotherham In Bloom Winners

This summer there was a bumper number of entries to the ever popular Rotherham in Bloom Garden Competition.

Now in its twelfth year, the competition recognises the achievements of both established and newly aspiring gardeners who’ve made a beautiful and colourful difference to their estates. During lockdown people spent more time than ever in their gardens and once-neglected borders flourished and vegetable patches sprouted new leaves. Prioritising physical and mental wellbeing helped many people to adapt to new routines and taking time out to do the things that helped them unwind. Thank you to everyone who took part. Your hard work goes a long way to making Rotherham a strong community and a place to be proud of.

Wickersley Ward had two winners, both were in the Best Children Container Award for 7-16 year old. Well done, we hope you continue to enjoy your gardening, even in the winter months.
