This year, 2015, Evington in Bloom was judged the best urban area in the East Midlands and have been invited to enter Britain in Bloom in 2016. The shield shown in the picture was won by Evington 23 years ago and it is now back again.
Cllr. Deepak Bajaj said, “This is a fantastic achievement and I am so proud of all the people who take such enormous pride in the area.”
Evington has six ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ groups as well as many community groups and individuals who continue to volunteer their time freely.
This party at Evington Park House was organised as a ‘thank you’ to volunteers and finished with a gardening quiz.
