Success for Urmston Community Project

We were delighted to hear about the achievements of local community project, Urmston in Bloom.  The team have recently achieved a Level 4 Thriving as part of the RHS “It's Your Neighbourhood Awards.”  

Urmston in Bloom are supported by many local businesses, volunteers and sponsors including Wellacre staff and students!  Together, they have achieved a lot for the benefit of the Urmston community.

On twitter, Urmston in Bloom said:

“WOW what a day, thank you Wellacre Academy, without your commitment and support Urmston In Bloom would not have achieved this award; big thanks to your students, your efforts have had a positive impact on the Urmston community.”

The Royal Horticultural Society coordinates the awards to encourage communities to develop clean and green specific places in your local area and the Urmston in Bloom team work tirelessly to improve the environment of M41, ensuring that we have a great place to live, work and play.

Wellacre has been supporting Urmston in Bloom for the last two years with students regularly helping to pot and nurture plants in the Eco Centre to decorate the seasonal barrier baskets in and around the town centre.

Flowers are also donated to local organisations such as Greenfield Church, who brightened their grounds, and De Brook Lodge Care Home, who went on to win the Ideal Care Homes ‘National Gardens in Bloom’ competition with their garden.

Urmston in Bloom is aiming for the Level 5 Award, the highest award!  In the meantime, volunteers will be working throughout Urmston to replace the summer barrier baskets with winter displays.  They have passed on their thanks again toWellacre for our continued support in nurturing the plants and to our students who have, once again, done a brilliant job.
