Double Award for C.A.T.C.H.

It is with great pride that the group has received two awards, as we head towards the end of the year, in recognition of everyone’s efforts.

Earlier this month, CATCH received an Outstanding award from Britain in Bloom’s “Neighbourhood” programme, which is run by the Royal Horticultural Society and SouthWest in Bloom. This was in honour of our work on the Memorial Wildflower Meadow, in conjunction with Wincanton Town Council and the Cale Park group. Then, on October 20th, our Chairman and Vice Chairman were in attendance at Taunton, where Somerset County Council were distributing the Chairman’s Awards for services to the county, and CATCH were extremely grateful to receive this award in recognition of our work on the Cale and around the town of Wincanton.

It’s been said on many occasions that we all entered into this journey for the reward of seeing the river and the habitat around it flourish, I don’t think anyone joined for any other reason, so we are truly humbled to receive both awards. Well done to everyone involved and everyone who has supported the group, these awards are for you all.
