Chair, Michelle Scrogham and manager, Justin Tootill-Wales were thrilled to be awarded Gold for the BID entry and even more thrilled when they were called back for overall Category Winner for BIDs in the UK.
The day was topped of for the BID when they were awarded the Discretionary Award for Horticultural Excellence.
Michelle Scrogham said – It’s been a great day and I’m so proud of our team, BID and the community who helped deliver this result. Our project manager Justin has done an incredible job on the displays and to not only win gold but win best in category is great for Ulverston. We all know how fantastic our town is, but nationwide publicity acknowledging it, does incredible things for the local economy. Green space, floral displays and community engagement has a direct impact on wellbeing and the environment, and we hope that the hard work has been, and continues to be enjoyed by all.
