Britain in Bloom
Following on from the regional South & South East in Bloom judging on the 9th July, Royal Horticultural Society judges Ian Beaney and Lesley Jelleyman visited our town on Monday 29th July for the national Britain in Bloom judging, with New Milton being just one of seven nominated towns put forward for the Town & City Centre awards.
On the cliff top, Barton Bees WI were on hand at the Indian Memorial to show judges their handy work in maintaining the planted areas around the Indian Obelisk. Again, Nick Saunders was on hand to explain the history of the monument erected by local people in honour of Indian Army personnel who recuperated there during WW1.
The Mayor of New Milton, Cllr Alvin Reid passed on his heart-felt thanks to everyone involved in making the town look so wonderful.
