Mayfield win gold rating for 'Parish in Bloom 2018'

Mayfield and Five Ashes entered the 'Parish in Bloom' category for the first time and we are delighted to annouce a win for the parish! They were also the only parish to receive a gold rating with the highest score of 89 out of 100. A fantastic result!

Some points of note in the judges report included:

  • Mayfield is a quintessential village and a pleasure to visit
  • The visit was well organised and hosted
  • The village could go far in some of the other categories in future years
  • The supportive information was excellent and gave context to the entry
  • The primary school gardening club had produced a very creditable themed display
  • The community clearly has considerable civic and local pride.
  • The local shops were to be congratulated on their efforts and Leppard’s butcher’s bike outside the shop was particularly noted, as was the colourful florists shopfront

Lambert & Foster are proud to have one of their offices based in this beautiful village and are very pleased with this result - it says a lot about the area! Many congratulations to all involved.
