Hat-trick celebrations for Rowena
9:00am Friday 2nd November 2012 in News
A COMMUNITY group helping to make an area of Knutsford bloom in colour has picked up a top award for the third time running.
Rowena Acton from Longridge has won another award for Longridge and Shaw Heath In Bloom.
She collected her award at the North West In Bloom Awards ceremony in Southport.
The group won the ‘thriving award’ – meaning it’s a hat-trick for Rowena and her group after winning the award in 2010 and 2011.
Rowena and Great Places Housing Group organises events throughout the year to include the community and involves all different types of partners in Knutsford.
These range from hanging basket workshops to bulb planting to clean- up days.
This year Community Spirit – a residents group which Rowena is part of – has received funding from Cheshire Peaks and Plains Housing Trust to help with Rowena’s environmental projects.
Rowena said: “I would like to thank the local community, all the partners which helped this year and Peaks and Plains Housing Trust.”
