Hykeham In Bloom 2016

The Big Bulb Plant

The Big Bulb Plant

With the addition of the new planters situated on Meadow Lane, Bakewell Mews and the Three Arches on Mill Lane during 2014-2015, North Hykeham In Bloom decided to enter the East Midlands In Bloom section of Britain In Bloom.  To be honest we would have been happy to have received 80 points and gained an 'Achievement of Recognition' but we went far beyond that and received a Bronze award with 115 points.....what an excellent acheivement for our very first entry!  Furthermore, we won a discretionary judges award for the Millenium Litter Picking team who do a great job looking after our wonderful Millenium Lake......fingers crossed for the 2016 entry results in September!  Hykeham in Bloom is a joint effort from North Hykeham Town Council, our sponsors Pennells Garden Centre, Hykeham Lions, The Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Trust, Hicksons Spar on Newark Road, Martins Motor Company, Hykeham MOT and the Hykeham In Bloom Gardening Club.

Once again, I would like to thank our sponsors and supporters and the Hykeham In Bloom Gardening Club.....you really do make a big difference to our town!
