Great Coates Shortlisted for Community Rail Award

Great Coates has received two fantastic pieces of new today !
Firstly, we have been nominated by East Midlands In Bloom and will be entered into Britain In Bloom 2024 having achieved two consecutive gold awards – an extraordinary recognition for both the village and the dedicated volunteers who invest so much of their free time into this wonderful community.
Judging will take place in August 2024, one month after East Midlands in Bloom judge the village – can we secure a third gold in succession followed by a national, Britain in Bloom, award ?
Secondly, Barton Cleethorpes Rail Partnership and East Midlands Railway have nominated Great Coates in Bloom for a Community Rail Award acknowledging the remarkable work undertaken since becoming station adopters 3 years ago. Five of the In Bloom team will travel to Swansea, thanks to the generosity of Barton Cleethorpes Rail Partnership and East Midlands Railway for the awards in March.
A big congratulations to our dedicated Great Coates in Bloom team who work tirelessly, in their own time to make Great Coates GREAT to the benefit of our residents and visitors.
