The Chorley volunteers have been competing in Bloom for 15 years and are gold winners, but this year major construction work in the town centre is proving a massive challenge for the group. They must choose the judging route carefully so as not to lose marks.

Chris Bavin meets the Bloomers, who this year are focusing on three areas away from the building work. First up, their civic square needs to be transformed from a bland concrete square into a pleasant place for people to enjoy. The local district hospital on the edge of town is creating an inspiring sensory garden for dementia patients. Finally, the Bloomers are engaging the help of the local Mormon community, who have a show-stopping garden inside their temple which might gain the team extra marks for horticulture. They hope all this will be enough to win them another gold on judging day. Show less
