Kippax - Gold and Category Winners

Overall Impression

This urban community, with so many support groups, is so obviously bursting with pride, which abounded everywhere on the judges' tour. There is obvious attention to the minutest detail in every possible place. Last year taking part in BRITAIN IN BLOOM has strengthened the group's commitment to participating in the In Bloom campaign. Meeting people throughout our visit showed their involvement and genuine commitment and it was a delight to share.

The allotments are outstanding. June Perkins at the Growing Zone Gardens brings together youngsters and older persons with disabilities, visual impairment and certain learning needs to learn how to grow vegetables, flowers and fruit etc. and be out in the fresh air having fun and has to be highly commended for her transformation results.

At Kippax North Primary School full use is made of the extensive grounds with all the pupils enjoying the natural habitats and bird hide, bursting with information on all aspects of wildlife, provided in the grounds by a dedicated caretaker, Stuart Owen, with the pupils at the Garden Club, demonstrating their extensive knowledgeable.

Finding bee orchids growing in what was a coal mining area must be the ultimate in restoration of the natural environment and the wildflower meadow at Billy Wood is a joy to behold.

3. A donation from the White Swan September 2020

KIB would like to say a huge thanks to Richard from the White Swan on Cross Hills for organising a raffle at the pub for us. Thanks also to his staff and customers. They raised £230 for plants for our village. Well done you all.
