Teesside today kept up its proud tradition of success in the annual Northumbria in Bloom scheme by picking up several awards.
The winners were announced this morning in a ceremony at Sunderland's Stadium of Light.
And perhaps the pick of the crop was the small village of Moorsholm, which not only won one of the major awards (best village), it bagged a hat-trick of special awards: most attractive front garden (Hazel Tree Farmhouse), outstanding voluntary contribution by a private individual (Barry McCabe) and best kept grounds of a religious establishment (St Mary’s Church).
Other major award winners were Stockton (best city), Thornaby (best small city), Eston (best urban community) and Saltburn (best coastal resort).
There was also Teesside success in the list of special awards: best voluntary project, Saltburn Library; best kept bus, metro or railway station, Saltburn; best park, Ropner Park, Stockton; best college, university grounds or sports centre, Redcar Racecourse.
The best overall entry - and best small town - was Sedgefield.
