Category 2A: Urban Community 
Allerton Bywater Silver Gilt Rose Award 
Introduction 
What a difference a few months can make, the judges were delighted to see the 
improvements across the entry. 
Section A: Horticultural Achievement 
Areas of Achievement 
Colourful seasonal and sustainable displays through the village, some to note are 
Highfield Hill and the new beds complimenting the existing herbaceous border and 
mine cars, maintained by Peter & Ian, window boxes outside Edward Vll WMC, the 
Meadows, and the incredible planting on the banking alongside the footpath looked 
after by Roy. The gardens at St Mary the Less looked after by Sue were outstanding 
and the colourful bed outside the pharmacy maintained by Gail & Michelle 
Residential gardens were good throughout those to note were the Main Street, 
Meadows cul- de - sac, Vickers Court. 
Areas for Improvement 
The banking at Ticklecock Bridge, consider future planting such as sustainable ground 
cover which will reduce maintenance and improve the overall appearance. 
Section B: Environmental Responsibility 
Areas of Achievement 
The ingenious scheme to collect grey water from the Miner’s Memorial on the 
Millennium Green. 
The works carried out at the Lines, Ticklecock Bridge area and the mining memorial 
all serve as a strong reminder of Allerton’s heritage. 
The entry was spotless throughout and planters had been improved since spring. 
Areas for Improvement 
Continue to work towards the future plans for the Allerton Staithes and Old Pottery site 
development. 38 
Section C: Community Participation 
Areas of Achievement 
The excellent standard of vegetables, fruit and herbs at the allotment, and the new 
cottage garden area was stunning, and plans for the entrance will make a welcoming 
feature. 
The children's poster competition down at The Meadows, a lovely idea to get local 
children involved in the In Bloom, and a scheme that can be built on for future. The 
winning poster to be used for next years In bloom publicity. 
Support from local business's including Valentines, and Papico's to note. 
Areas for Improvement 
Keep working with the Head at the local primary school to find ways in which they can 
get involved. 
Good to see new members since spring, continue to encourage others.
