Prizegiving

John Hare-Brown receives trophy from Margaret Kiff

Pauline Collins receives the Sam and Joes Challenge Bowl

Anthony Oliver receives the Civic Pride Award

Wimborne in Bloom's Annual Prizegiving took place on Saturday (15th September) at Allenbourn Middle School.

For the fourth year in succession the Prizegiving was split into two events, the first for all the Schools involved with the Junior Sections of the Art and Poetry Competitions and secondly for the Adults, again in the Art and Poetry Competitions and also the Main Wimborne in Bloom Competition. The Mayor and Mayoress, Cllr. John and Mrs Ann Burden presented the prizes. Local Nurseries and Garden Centres around the area provided garden vouchers to be spent at their centres for the Main Competition with Wimborne in Bloom providing prizes for the winners in the Junior Art and Poetry Competitions. Mrs Pam Perry continued her support by sponsoring the Adult Poetry Competition which her late husband Cllr John Perry sponsored when he was Town Mayor. The Mayor and Mayoress presented a new trophy for the winner of the Adult Art Competition.

All prizewinners received a Certificate, these kindly produced and donated by Moose International, Wimborne Town Lodge with special thanks to Michael Randall for preparing them all. The main competition winners also received the Trophies in the 17 different categories.

There were three surprise items at the end of the prizegiving. Margaret Kiff from the Green Man presented John Hare-Brown with a trophy in recognition of his unstinting work in keeping the town tidy, litter picking and weeding of pavements. The Sam and Joe's Challenge Bowl was awarded to Pauline Collins in recognition of all her support in organising the spring, summer and autumn competitions each year and her general committee work. The tables were then turned as completely unexpected the Committee presented the Civic Pride Shield to their Chairman Anthony Oliver for all his work and leadership of Wimborne in Bloom over the last twenty years.

Certificates of Excellence awarded by South and South East in Bloom were also presented to Felicity Prince, Penny Durrant, Pauline Collins and St. John's First School.
