North West in Bloom – Awards 2012!

We are pleased to announce that Haslington Parish has won awards in the 2012 North West in Bloom competition. Representatives visited Southport to accept the awards on behalf of residents and the Parish Council.

Haslington village won a silver award and Winterley a bronze. Also three of the senior citizen residences won special “It’s Your Neighbourhood” awards.

The entries for the North West in Bloom competition are sponsored by Haslington Parish Council who are very proud to accept them on behalf of all the parishioners who give so much time and effort towards these achievements.

North West in Bloom covers a very wide area and it is a great achievement to win any prize – especially after such a dismal rainy spring and summer.

A Message from Haslington Parish Council:

“On behalf of Haslington Parish Council I would like to express sincere thanks and appreciation to all the parishioners who have tended the baskets and tubs throughout the entire parish in the spring and summer months. Without your help we could not maintain the flowers and plants to such a high standard and this year it culminated in Haslington winning a Silver Award, Winterley a Bronze Award and Orchard Court, Walker Close and Crosslands each won ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood Award in the North West in Bloom competition.

 Once again many thanks to you all”.

Councillor Mrs Doris Farrall
