WHEN it comes to growing your own Mossley community groups are once again definitely in a league of their own.
The town turned the annual Royal Horticultural Society North, Britain in Bloom, ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ awards in Southport into a local prize giving festival.
Leading the way with three certificates were annual winners from Micklehurst Estates Residents’ Association (MERA).
They received two ‘outstanding’ accolades plus ‘highly commended’ from North West in Bloom.
In the ‘Thriving’ category there were awards for Mossley Town Team and Friends of Mossley Park while Mossley Community Centre was adjudged ‘outstanding’ for their ‘Offshoots garden gang.’
Posting on Facebook, MCC said: “It is thanks to the hard work by all the wonderful volunteers who have come along at the weekends, those who turn up rain or shine every Wednesday morning, the great team who have done outreach work with our elderly folk and the community who have engaged in events.”
