Penarth Town Council is delighted to announce that the Penarth in Bloom pilot projects that took place during 2017 have all been awarded certificates as part of the RHS & Wales in Bloom ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ award scheme.

Awards were received for the Community Gardening project in the Arcot Street Triangle, the town centre planter scheme, the development of vegetable and herb beds in the garden at the West House Town Council Offices and for the improvements made in the grounds of the Kymin House on Beach Road.

Penarth Town Council would like to thank all local residents and town centre retailers who helped to make these pilot schemes such a success.

The Town Centre Planter scheme is also back in time for Christmas! The summer planting schemes have been replaced with mini Christmas trees for the festive season.

Once again the Upper and Lower Glebe Street traders are supporting the scheme, and the scheme has now also been extended to cover Station Approach. The trees were supplied with their own lights – but many of the traders have been making their own embellishments and the trees are certainly adding to the festive feel of the streets around town.

The Penarth in Bloom team have decided they’re ready to enter the main Wales in Bloom competition in 2018– and the team would like the whole community to get involved – so watch this space for news about how to get involved in spring and summer of next year to help the project grow and make Penarth even more special.
