Ashcroft Communities in Bloom has maintained its excellent standing at the national level of competition. The group was awarded 5 out of 5 Blooms in the Circle of Excellence category, which is a non-competitive category.

Ashcroft CiB received special mention for Completion of Community Hall Upgrade Project.

“Ashcroft’s Community Hall, a circa 1900 structure is described, but not registered as a municipal heritage building,” wrote judges Steve Preston and Gail Pearcey.

Once the interior renovations were completed last year, “CiB volunteers worked with Village staff to: develop a landscape plan; remove turf; install concrete pavers; and to secure benches and water-wise planters made from recycled plastic.”

Ashcroft can be proud of their efforts, which provide real and meaningful environmental solutions to the benefit of all, added the judges.
