Tamworth wins Heart of England in Bloom. (posted 23/09/2017)

Congratulations to all who contributed to Tamworth winning gold - yet again - in the Heart of England In Bloom "small city" category, & picking up other awards as well. The town has looked magnificent this Summer with formal displays, hanging baskets, wild flowers on the verges, boxes on the bridges. It deserved to win! Is it a waste of money? No! It lifts the spirits of most locals & visitors, & makes the borough look beautiful & invitingl That has knock-on social, economic & reputational effects & so has to be money well spent.

Heritage Open Day Sunday 11th September 2016.

Four of our Guides - Lilian, Vicky, Robin and David - had a lovely time in Tamworth town centre on Heritage Open Day, 2016. They gave short tours to those who wished to learn a bit more about our heritage, and were around the town encouraging people to enter the visitor attractions that were open for free. At Guy's Almshouses Tamworth's great benefactor Thomas Guy even seemed put in an appearance! - Heritage Open Day 2017 will be on Sunday 10th September. Details to follow. 

 

A word from Councillor Eric Drinkwater of Lichfield District Council:-

Having lived in Staffordshire for over 50 years I was truly
amazed at the Historical value of Tamworth and would like to thank
Tamworth Guides for such an illuminating experience. All of my young
group which had students from Staffordshire and Ghana (West
Africa) thoroughly enjoyed the experience especially the castle with
it's opportunities to step back in time. Dressing up in period costume
really resonated with the young people and I can recommend a guided tour through Tamworth Guides.
