Blooming Lichfield strikes Gold

For the second year running, Lichfield City has won Gold in the national City in Bloom Competition.  We are absolutely thrilled for the committee who have worked so hard to ensure Lichfield has been looking it’s best throughout this fabulous Summer.  Many congratulations to all those who participated in this splendid achievement including our Head Groundsman Scott Gardner and his team, who’s contribution this year included the creation of a courtyard garden at the back of the ballroom and building a new greenhouse from re-salvaged materials.  On Thursday 26th July, after  touring the walled garden and new courtyard, the judging panel set off on a whistle stop tour of our beautiful city and it’s glorious parks and gardens with Lichfield’s town crier, Ken Knowles leading the way.
