*The Fox and Hounds pub in Blidworth has won a gold award in the East Midlands in Bloom competition for their stunning garden display.
David Coles, landlord at the Fox and Hounds, said: “We enter the competition every year and we’ve won a few awards – but this is the first time we have won gold. We have won silver in the past but we’re really pleased and proud of this because we always aim for gold.
“We won the award for our display of hanging baskets and tubs which were around the pub during the summer months.
“All the flowers are grown by a couple in Mansfield who have a horticulture business. We then look after them and make them look beautiful.”
A new winter display of flowers is now on view for visitors to the pub.
