Rustington welcomes South & South East in Bloom team for judging day

Rustington’s impressive floral displays were put to the test yesterday when the South & South East in Bloom team arrived for judging day. Rustington Parish Council vice-chairman Alison Cooper, Rustington-in-Bloom chairman Steve Perry and Michael Harwood from Ferring Nurseries welcomed judges Paul Dalby and Barry Newman and showed them around the village.

South & South East in Bloom is the largest horticultural campaign in the region, involving hundreds of communities each year. Rustington has a long history of excellence, with prizes last year including a gold for Rustington Methodist Church Garden and outstanding awards for Coastal Workshop, Oakhurst Gardens, Rustington Hall, The Chaucery Memorial and the The Hidden Twitten.
