Mirfield In Bloom – The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service
Mirfield in Bloom have been awarded the equivalent of an MBE and on 4th August 2022 combined the award ceremony with the visit of the judges to Britain in Bloom, for which they have been entered, representing Yorkshire’s finest.
The Lord Lieutenant presented Ruth Edwards, chair of Mirfield in Bloom with the certificate signed by the Queen following a buffet lunch in St Mary’s Church, attended by the Mayor of Kirklees, senior council staff, volunteers all in their new high viz jackets and supporters of the group. Among those mentioned for special thanks was Andy Goff, Kirklees Council’s Volunteer Coordinator for the area. Ed and Tim represented Natural Kirklees (anything for a free lunch). A thoroughly well deserved award, recognising the efforts of all the volunteers and supporters making this town somewhere where the residents can Love to Live.
