Gold Award

As everyone will know the efforts of our dedicated Dunshalt in Bloom team were rewarded this year with the coveted Gold Award. The new road signs are now in place and it’s time to celebrate this magnificent achievement.

The Community Association are hosting a celebration event where we’ll all be able to publicly recognise the achievement and thank the Dunshalt In Bloom volunteers for the tremendous amount of effort that went into achieving the Gold Award.

As well as reflecting on this year’s success we’d also like to use the event to discuss how Dunshalt in Bloom might develop in the future, for example:

  • How do we make best use of the Community Woodland? Indeed how many knew we had a Community Woodland!!

  • How do we best involve the children and young people in the village? The Painting the Potts and Sunflower Competition of the past two years have been tremendously successful and we’d like to see this aspect grow.

  • How do we recruit new volunteers to maintain the exceptionally high standards achieved by the current small team. There’s no need for a Monty Don or an Alan Titchmarsh here. Most of the duties are more mundane – planting, watering and weeding!!

  • How do we improve the non-floral aspects of the village? The award is after all for the best kept village and there’s a lot of non flowery work to be done.
