Having been inspired by the efforts of the Beverley in Bloom Group who drew in all parts of the community, to make the town a better environment in which to live, and being a finalist in the Britain in Bloom campaign, it was felt that Beverley Town Council should try and carry on the momentum and revive the Brighter Beverley Group.
Beverley AC celebrated the achievements of its Couch to 5k participants at Peter Pan Parkrun on Saturday 1 September, with runners taking part in the 5 kilometre run to successfully complete the 15-week course, which began in May.
Twenty-seven Couch to 5k runners completed the course at Peter Pan Park in West Hull, cheered on by marshals and encouraged by over 250 fellow runners, many of whom regularly attend to run the free 5k event every Saturday morning.
Beverley Town Council, Beverley in Bloom and town volunteers are busy planning for the summer planting and associated horticultural, environmental and community projects within the town which will contribute to the RHS Britain in Bloom campaign 2018.
This is the first time that our beautiful town of Beverley has been a finalist in the RHS Britain in Bloom campaign, which is managed by the Royal Horticultural Society and entry is by invitation only.
