Chris Bavin is in the historic Lancashire village of Croston to meet a group of Bloomers who are determined to win gold despite the village still suffering the after effects of a devastating flood. With only six weeks until judging day, they have come up an ambitious grand plan to impress the judges but rallying a community that has been through a difficult time is a huge ask. Their key projects this year include an ambitious challenge to transform an overgrown school garden, a village makeover which will involve the whole community and a show-stopping garden in a local pub. The local economy depends on visitors and the Bloomers hope a gold will help draw people to the village, so there is a lot at stake. Show less
