Annual Town Gathering and Award Ceremony

The Civic Centre was alive tonight with the good folks of Trowbridge, Councillors, the Mayor, the Town Crier and with a strong presence from the Cadets.  It was so heartwarming to hear about all the great things that have been going on in Trowbridge over the last year, not least the opening of such a grand place to hold events such as these, The Civic Centre.

There was also a lot of talk and excitement about recent plans and announcements, such as the proposed Arts Centre in the Town Hall and I heard that there is to be a ceremony next week, breaking the ground at St Stephens Place for the new cinema and hotel leisure park.

At the Awards Ceremony scores of good citizens shook the Mayors hand as they came up to get their award certificates, representing so much that is great about our County Town.  Among them the English Landscape gardeners responsible for planning, planting and maintaining the areas that won us Southwest in Bloom and Mrs Jennifer Polledri the Chair of Trowbridge in Bloom who coordinates the effort that goes into installing pride in The County Town.
