Liskeard has enjoyed more blooming success.

At the South West In Bloom awards held in Truro Cathedral, Liskeard in Bloom scooped gold in the Pennant Cup, competing against other towns of the same size. 

The triumph follows similar victories in 2019 and in 2022 when Platinum Jubilee-themed displays wowed the judges. 

The flowers of Fore Street won a gold award in the business, leisure and tourism category and the resident gardeners of Culverland Park in Liskeard won an It’s Your Neighbourhood award. 

Liskeard Mayor Simon Cassidy said: “I’m sure the people of Liskeard will be as amazed as I always am with the dedication of all the volunteers of Liskeard In Bloom for making our town look so amazing.

“To see them win two golds from South West In bloom is a fitting tribute to all the hard work and determination each of them puts into making our town beautiful.

"On behalf of all the people of Liskeard, I would like to thank them for everything they do.”
