Volunteers across Fylde have been recognised for their sterling work in greening up their communities by the Royal Horticultural Society through the It’s Your Neighbourhood programme.

As well as winning big in the North West In Bloom Awards 2022, Fylde was honoured to receive 14 RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood awards, thanks entirely to the generosity and talent of teams of dedicated volunteers who donate their time to keeping the borough beautiful.

The brilliant volunteers whose tireless efforts keep the train stations of the borough in bloom were amongst those recognised, with four awards presented to their respective Friends groups, including a 5 Year Award for the Friends of Ansdell & Fairhaven Station.

The majority of the awards presented were of the ‘Level 5 – Outstanding‘ level, showcasing the incredible level of skill possessed by the volunteers across the borough as well as their community spirit.

Many of the other volunteer groups whose members go out in all weathers for the betterment of their communities were also recognised with certificates at the presentation ceremony, including a commendation for the diligent St Annes Litter Pickers who work to keep the beaches clean and appealing for residents and visitors alike.
