Chatteris 2021 RHS Britain in Bloom
The news that Chatteris has been selected to take part in the 2021 RHS Britain in Bloom competition is fantastic recognition for the hard work of the committee over a number of years. But while a small number of “hardcore” volunteers should rightly be applauded for their efforts, success in this competition will require the whole community to step up. Luckily, this shouldn’t be a problem for Chatteris. It’s 16 years since Chatteris entered its first Anglia In Bloom competition and with bronze, silver and gold under their belts in previous years, they’ll be aiming high. The RHS judging teams will be looking at how the local team brings the community together and I know the Chatteris committee have a community project due to launch shortly with opportunities for all ages and abilities to take part. In recent posts I’ve spoken frequently about the superb examples of community spirit and neighbourliness that Covid lockdown has caused. I have no doubt Chatteris will score highly.
