Wolvey Awards
Rugby in Bloom 2014

The Rugby in Bloom campaign
is run by Rugby Borough Council

Rugby in Bloom 2014 was organised by Rugby Borough Council, with support from a host of community organisations, volunteers, businesses and schools. This year the themes were remembrance, to coincide with the centenary of the start of WWI, and edible borders. Special prizes were awarded for the most appropriate and imaginative interpretations of these themes. Thanks to their partners at Blooms and Sutton's Seeds, Rugby Borough Council distributed free poppy seeds to schools, community groups and parish councils. The winners of the Rugby in Bloom Awards were announced at a ceremony at Blooms Rugby Garden Centre on 18 September 2014.

In this year's Rugby in Bloom competition, Wolvey Village Square and Wolvey Old Cricket Field Wetland Reserve both gained GOLD awards. There were also awards for the Blue Pig - 1st in the Pubs & Hotels category and Wolvey Surgery - 1st in the Shops and Offices category, also Wolvey Post Office & Stores were 3rd in this category. Dr Jenny Burton was 1st in the Medium to Large Garden category and the Thatched Cottage, Coventry Road, Wolvey was highly Commended.
