Mayor welcomes Britain in Bloom judges to Derry today see floral displays in our city, parks and gardens

The Mayor welcomed Britain in Bloom judges to the city and district this week and said he was delighted that Derry is UK finalists in the Small City category of the competition. He said the Council’s participation in the Britain in Bloom competition is a great way of galvanising local communities into taking pride in their city and district. He paid tribute to the Council staff in the Environment and Regeneration Department including those in the street cleansing, street cleansing and environmental sections for all their hard work. He said: “It was a pleasure to meet with judges today and to take them around the city to view some of the excellent work done by our teams to keep our city streets, parks and green spaces clean and our floral displays across the Council area in such great condition. "This is a real team effort with all of our statutory organisations, schools, community and voluntary sector groups getting behind us to ensure our city is looking its best at all times and to give us all pride in our city and district. Fingers crossed for the finals!"
