Ahoghill is one of only five locations from across the UK to be nominated for this year’s Britain in Bloom ‘Champion of Champions’ award.
The ‘Ahoghill in Bloom’ initiative was created by the village Traders’ Association some seven years ago and a range of environmental initiatives has been undertaken across the village since.
An enthusiastic team of volunteers undertakes an extensive programme of improvement throughout the year and works closely with Ballymena Borough Council and other local agencies in the process.
As a result of such hard work the village has enjoyed a long history of success in Britain in Bloom,
With judges from the Royal Horticultural Society expected to visit over the summer, excitement in the village is building as Ahoghill is representing Northern Ireland in the very prestigious Britain in Bloom ‘Champion of Champions’.
