The impressive floral display by Penarth Town Council in the grounds of its HQ at West House in Stanwell Road along with the council’s new wedding bower and its silhoutte WW1 soldier.

Penarth Town Council has won one award out of the 54 different trophies bestowed on various towns and villages in Wales in the annual “Wales in Bloom” competition.

The multi-category competition – which every year awards a plethora of prizes – is organised by the Royal Horticultural Society.

Penarth’s winning entry took the coveted Silver First Prize –  beating Caerphilly into second place. Apparently there was no third competitor

Wooden flower planters were provided by Penarth Town Council to participating retailers for display outside their premises. Some local residents thought they added to pavement clutter

At the “Wales in Bloom” awards ceremony –  held in Colwyn Bay this weekend – the judges awarded the City and Town Centre First Place Silver Award to Penarth.

Caerphilly Town Council was the runner-up and secured 2nd prize. There does not appear to have been any other entry in the category.

    It’s well worth taking a trip to USK in Bloom and see how they have involved local businesses and residents to participate in their bloom.
