Alton WI members were over the moon to hear that the Splot (Small Plot) had scooped a Gold Award certificate and the John Smith Trophy in Alton in Bloom 2016. This annual event is sponsored by Alton Town Council.

The Gold award was for Best Community Group or Neighbourhood Area category and the John Smith cup was awarded to an individual or organisation working with the community in promotion of Alton in Bloom.

Alton Herald reported the event:- The trophy went to Alton Women's Institute for working "incredibly hard" to transform a very unloved and empty area of Alton, vastly improving the lower entrance to the town's High Street making it "much more inviting for visitors and residents alike".

The success has been marked with a new plaque on our shield and the Splot volunteer group, after celebrating their achievement, are busy preparing for 2017.
