Budding Picassos at Preshute!
On Tuesday, 17 July, our Mayor, Lisa Farrell, popped along to Preshute School together with the Chairman of Marlborough in Bloom, Steve Pascall. They were there to present the winners of the In Bloom Art Competition with their prizes kindly donated by The White Horse Bookshop. The Mayor spent time chatting with pupils and teachers and admiring the rain collection project which also was part of this year’s South West in Bloom campaign and visited by RHS judge, Su Maddocks, last week. Well done to all entrants of the art competition - their masterpieces, all based on the theme of ‘Birds’, can still be seen in the window of the former Lighting of Distinction shop in the High Street. What talented children we have in Marlborough.

On Tuesday morning, 10 July, we welcomed RHS South West in Bloom judges Martin Abrahams and Su Maddocks to Marlborough. There's more than ever for them to see this year, and we wish Marlborough in Bloom the very best of luck in the competition. There was a real feeling of "everyone's a winner" in the Town Hall in the afternoon at the end of a glorious day that really helped show our lovely town off at it's best to the RHS judges.
