A blooming good chance...

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council's Area Management teams have planted thousands of new plants across the Borough to give five communities a blooming good chance of success when judges from Northumbria In Bloom arrive this month. There are five contenders for honours - Saltburn in the coastal resort category, Eston and Grangetown in the urban community, Stanghow in the small village and Moorsholm in the village. The Council's Cabinet Member for Environmental Improvement Councillor Bob Stanway said: "I am absolutely delighted at the efforts that each of these communities has put into this year's competition and I hope it brings success. They certainly deserve it." Saltburn, which won the coastal resort last year, will be the first to be judged by Northumbria In Bloom on Tuesday, July 11 starting at 9.30am, then the town welcomes Britain In Bloom judges on Friday afternoon, August 4. Each area has been helped by the Clean and Green teams in consultation with community groups, residents associations and Coast & Country Housing. At Saltburn, work has involved planting 15,200 summer bedding plants in and around the town.
