Dartmouth Green Partnerships had an exciting summer in 2015, planting displays for visitors and local people to enjoy, and to win the hearts and minds of both South West in Bloom and Britain in Bloom judges.
The national Britain in Bloom results were announced in Sunderland on Friday October 16, when Dartmouth won Gold in the Seaside Towns under 12,000 population category. Pictured above are DGP representatives Kathy Stansfield and Stevie Rogers accepting the Gold award from Jeff Banks, Vice Chairman, RHS.

Results were announced at the Awards ceremony in Dartmouth at the Britannia Royal Naval College on Thursday 24 September. Dartmouth won Gold in the Champion of Champions Category.
