Blooming good results for local nature groups

All five local entries for the 2016 South West In Bloom awards have been given the top grade of ‘Outstanding’ in the Neighbourhoods category. This recognises the effort put in by our dedicated groups of volunteers and the support given by Dodington Parish Council and Yate Town Council.
