October 2016 _ Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Awards
Once more, Didsbury groups have gained a great number of awards at the annual RHS Awards Ceremony at Southport. For the Friends Group we achieved Gold (Level 5, Outstanding) for both Parsonage Gardens and Fletcher Moss Park.
Didsbury in Bloom (that is all the individual groups in Didsbury together) not only gained the Gold level award, but for the third year running also won the cup for the Best Urban Community in the North West of England. This means that Didsbury will be nominated for the national finals of Best Urban Community next year.
In full, the results for the 'It's Your Neighbourhood Category' (individual groups) were:
Level 5 (Outstanding, Gold): Parsonage Gardens, Fletcher Moss Park, Didsbury Baptist Church, St James' Church, Rushton Street, Didsbury Park, Didsbury Village, Parrs Wood Avenue, Warburton Street
Level 4 (Thriving, Silver-Gilt): Parrs Wood Environmental Centre, Sussex Avenue, Ford Lane, Moorland Road, The Metropolitan).
Congratulations to all involved.
