Celebrating all Britain in Bloomers at national awards

Celebrating all Britain in Bloomers at national awards

The eagerly anticipated climax of the RHS Britain in Bloom annual competition took place in Sunderland recently with the national awards ceremony at the Rainton Meadows Arena. The event was attended by hundreds of dedicated In Bloomers from all across the UK.

As passionate supporters of Britain in Bloom, we always follow the competition closely and value the awards as a chance to congratulate everyone who takes part – not just those who are successful on the night itself. We also like to follow the achievements of our Amberol customers many of whom have an excellent record in the competition.

This year’s event proved to be as exciting as ever with some extremely well-deserved awards given out on the night. We were delighted to see so many familiar names of past and present Amberol customers on the awards list – 52 at the last count! Whilst we can’t mention them all individually here, we would like to applaud all the In Bloom entrants for their efforts to make Britain a brighter, better more beautiful place.
