Newent Goes For Gold

First published in News

NEWENT will be going for gold next Monday, July 14, when Heart of England in Bloom judges arrive in town.

This is a extra special anniversary year for Newent, which is entered in the small town's category.

And the town is flying the flag as the only town in the Forest of Dean district to campaign for blooming glory.

This year is actually Newent in Bloom’s tenth anniversary and so the colour gold features in many of the displays about the town.

“It’s a gold award that we are going for” said Newent in Bloom co-ordinator Lynn Ashton.

She added: “A lot of volunteers from eight to over eighty have contributed time and effort to make Newent look as attractive as it does”.
