Bloomin' great again in Rubery as judges deem displays 'outstanding'

GREEN-fingered Rubery residents are celebrating after their displays were judged to be ‘outstanding’ by the Heart of England in Bloom for the fifth year running.

Rubery in Bloom, graded Level 5 by the judges, was launched in 2012 and since then has gone from strength-to-strength.

There are 150 flower boxes throughout the village – one under every street sign – which are planted out and watered by a host of volunteers.

Lorna Ockendon from Rubery in Bloom said the grade was well-deserved and testament to the amount of work put in.

“We would like to thank all our donors and volunteers who work so hard to look after the flower boxes across both the north and the south wards of the village.”
