Northcliffe Environmental Enterprise Team wins silver rose in Yorkshire in Bloom awards
8:00am Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
A Shipley-based project that involves adults with special needs growing plants and flowers has been hailed as a “huge success” by judges of Yorkshire in Bloom.
The Northcliffe Environmental Enterprise Team achieved a silver rose award in this year’s competition – the first time the group has entered.
The charity, based at Northcliffe Nurseries, provides training and work opportunities to adults in horticulture, retail gardening and building.
Despite having become a thriving nursery business producing 30,000 plants a year, this summer was the first time the group entered Yorkshire In Bloom.
Judges said: “Many people from different backgrounds spend time volunteering and helping the students who all work together to make this site a huge success.”
The town of Shipley also saw success in the contest, winning a Silver gilt rose award.
