Severn Unit Helps Tewkesbury Achieve Gold Award


When MVS Severn was approached by Avon Navigation Trust Director Paul Cronin to help around the garden and grounds of the Avon Lock in Tewkesbury in preparation for the judging of the Heart of England in Bloom competition, they were only too pleased to help.


Avon Lock Keeper Nicola Lancaster said, “I realised that with extra help we could do really well in the competition and the MVS volunteers gave up their time and worked very hard to help achieve the prized Gold Certificate.”

HOU Nic Price added, “We also helped give Strensham and Nafford Locks, which are further upstream much needed makeovers during the year so our Gardening and Ground Force Team have been kept extremely busy”.
