The parish won the gold award for a series of community projects
Two years of hard work by the parishioners of St Pierre Du Bois paid off as the parish won gold in the large village category of Britain in Bloom.
Marguerite Talmage of the parish's floral committee said: "We're on cloud nine, we were hoping, but were against the seven top villages in the country."
Among the projects that earned them the award were the development of a church yard walk and a community garden.
Marguerite said: "It's the heritage projects we are most proud of."
One of the parish projects involved planting trees at L'Eree
The parish's floral committee spent the previous two years building up to the award, winning the Floral Guernsey Community Competition in 2009 which made them eligible for the national Britain in Bloom awards in 2010.
To win both awards, Marguerite explained: "We had to show the judges evidence of horticultural achievement, environmental responsibility and community participation."
While the Floral Committee managed the work being done around the parish Marguerite said: "The whole community got involved... it's thanks to them we had this great achievement."
After two very hard working years the committee plan to "have a quieter year" in 2011, but still intend to enter the Floral Guernsey Competition again and continue the work on their ongoing and heritage projects.
