'Wokingham in Bloom' Competition
Because of the substantial construction work that is currently taking place in Wokingham, the Town Council have decided not to enter this competition in 2017. The refurbishment of the Market Place around the Town Hall and the development on the council car park, just outside our Bradbury Centre doors, will have a major impact on the heart of the town. For this reason it has been decided to take a short break, and return to the competition in 2018, showcasing completed areas of the improved town centre.
Hoardings have been erected around the council car park in Rose Street, and the Rose St. Gardeners have had to clear the rose bed at the entrance to this car park. We have moved the rose bushes and found them a safe home for the time-being, in the hope that, when the building work is finished, we will be allocated another area of garden to develop somewhere around the Church building and move the roses back again. At the moment it is not clear whether we shall have any green space at all outside our Bradbury Centre doors – but we live in hope!
