St. Brelade is hoping to do well in Britain in Bloom Competition
by Margaret Holland Prior

Somehow the summer has come and gone and what seems like an age ago in early August, Sue Wood and David Littlewood, the Judges for the Small Coastal Resort category for Britain in Bloom, came for a whirlwind visit to our beautiful Parish.
The week before this important visit, we began the final deadhead and tidy up. Kevin and his crew down at St Aubin spent extra time getting the lawn in the Marine Garden looking quite beautiful and Richard and his team were busy down in the Winston Churchill Memorial Gardens in St Brelade’s Bay. Bill Shanks and the Parish team were out sweeping roads and pavements and the owners of the gardens we were going to visit were preening their prize blooms. Our route around the Parish was tightly timed and we had much to show our Judges from a peep into The St Brelade Battle of Flowers shed, a walk past the fine gardens of the retirement bungalows in Don Farm, viewing Max de la Haye’s prize dahlias and ending at the triple winning gardens of La Mielle Apartments at La Haule. A highlight was a talk by Tim Liddiard of the Environment Department, on the ecology of Ouaisne Common - down on the common itself.
The presentation of photographs and words on storyboards of the work achieved during the year and the press call was held at Reg’s Garden, where the 10th St Brelade Scouts talked to the Judges about their work. There was a good attendance from those in the Parish who have assisted us.
All we can do now is to thank everyone for their help during this past year and await the Presentations in Torquay in late September. Fingers crossed we do well!

Footnote:St. Brelade was awarded GOLD for ‘Best in Class’ at the presentation held in Torquay on 25th September. A full report will appear in next issue.
