Fox Valley's fine floral displays recieve top accolade!
The beautiful floral displays at Sheffield’s Fox Valley shopping centre have received a prestigious Gold Award in the Yorkshire in Bloom competition.
The centre team was praised for its beautiful planting across the site as well as its range of local events and community engagement at a special award ceremony held in York this week.
The centre opened in June 2016 and has won several national and regional awards including the RICS pro-Yorkshire Award for Regeneration.
This is the second year that Fox Valley has been put forward for an award in the Yorkshire heats of Britain in Bloom and the judges were full of praise for the team’s approach as well as the striking hanging baskets and planters and the wildflower banking at the centre.
Local landscape gardener Brett Fearnley-Cook has worked with the Fox Valley team over the last 12 months to help improve the centre’s floral displays and the hanging baskets are supplied by the centre’s florist Fleur de Lys.
Operations Director at Dransfield Properties Medi Parry-Williams said: “We are absolutely delighted to have scored so highly and received a Gold Award for the Yorkshire in Bloom Awards at Fox Valley.
“Our team have worked incredibly hard to improve on last year’s submission and it really is testament to all their hard work that we have received this award. We’ve also been delighted to work with the 3rd Stocksbridge Scouts this year on an area they’ve planted up for us.”
Fox Valley’s sister centres, Sanderson Arcade in Morpeth and Marshalls Yard in Gainsborough, are regular winners in their own regional In Bloom award schemes and Market Cross in Selby has also been awarded a Silver Gilt in Yorkshire in Bloom.
