Pride in Pembridge: Village is blooming after winning national competition
11:53am Friday 1st November 2013 in News
ONE village is blooming after winning a national horticultural competition.
Two years ago, people in Pembridge got together to ensure their community was kept tidy and attractive for residents and visitors.
Calling itself Pride in Pembridge, the group meets every week to pick litter from the highway, get rid of weeds and plant gardens in almshouses and other public areas.
Members are now reaping the rewards after putting Herefordshire on the map and scooping a gold award and the overall category winner in the Britain in Bloom awards.
Philip Rogers, publicity officer for Pride in Pembridge, said: “We are delighted.
“It’s been a community effort and it’s nice to see our efforts have been rewarded in such a big way.
“It’s not only the people who are part of the group who are involved. A lot of villagers who have fronts on the street have been putting flowers on so it’s a big village effort.”
