Heywood in Bloom scooped 16 awards at the RHS It's Your Neighbourhood North West in Bloom awards ceremony in Southport.

It's Your Neighbourhood allows judges to visit to community-based projects that includes local schools, allotments, health and well-being projects and conservation areas.

Each entry is marked on its individual merit and can gain a maximum level 5 award.

Cherwell Wellbeing Centre was awarded the highest accolade possible, gaining a level 5 award.

Ellen Yates, chairwoman of Heywood in Bloom, said: “There are so many lovely areas across Heywood and we are proud to be able to bring these awards back. There will be a presentation evening at our headquarters so members from each group will be able to pick up their award and meet the rest of the team.

“These awards represent a wonderful mix of sheltered accommodations, schools, cricket clubs and even our local fire station.”
