The army of volunteers who make Wigan Borough look beautiful as part of the annual ‘In Bloom’ event really do deserve a pat on the back.
Each autumn, all those who get involved with Borough in Bloom are invited to a special ‘Thank You’ evening hosted by the Mayor and the council’s deputy leader.
But the organisers want to do things a little differently and need your help…
This year, we’re introducing a series of special awards honouring the outstanding environmental achievements of borough residents – and they want the nominations to come from YOU!
So, if you know someone who helped with a community garden, worked with a school to improve their grounds or maybe even a local business that created a green space for customers – we’d like to hear from you!
All winners will be invited along to the ceremony and will receive an award and vouchers to spend on developing further projects in 2012.
