Rugby is Blooming

The town has won a silver gilt award in the small city category at last Friday's award ceremony at the Royal Horticultural Society's Lindley Hall in London.

In a press statement today, the Britain in Bloom judges said, "The overall impression of Rugby was of a strong community with voluntary groups, the wildlife trust, schools, businesses, Rugby First and the borough council all working in partnership in support of their 2019 Year of Green Action campaign."

You may remember that Rugby won gold in the small city category of the Heart of England In Bloom Awards for a 12th year in a row in September, also being crowned overall winner for the region for a second successive year.
