Blooming marvelous


GREEN-FINGERED Didsbury residents are up for a top national award.

The area took home the Best Urban Community award at the Royal Horticultural Society’s North West in Bloom Awards in Southport recently.

The trophy was the icing on the cake for Manchester, which took home a record 64 awards.

Didsbury’s victory means that the South Manchester suburb will be the North West’s representative at the Britain in Bloom Awards next September.

Manchester City Centre took silver in the same category last month, narrowly losing out to Birmingham City Centre.
