A glorious sunny, autumn afternoon was the scene for friends and competitors of this year’s Newhaven in Bloom Awards at Paradise Park (the sponsor of the event). Highlights were the glorious ‘living wall’ of flowers called ‘Summer Madness’, created by the gardeners of Ellis Gordon Court and delightful front and back garden displays. David Fitton, MBE kindly presented the awards, and as a founder member of Newhaven in Bloom from its inception in 1993, stated that he hoped the competition would go on into the future years providing pleasure and fun for all participants. If you would like to enter, please look out forms in the council magazine or pop into Paradise Park in the New Year. Congratulations to all our winners and competitors!
