Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Swansea University Blossoms in Celebration with Swansea in Bloom 2015 Success


A flourishing achievement as Swansea University is awarded Silver in the Best Large Business category at the Swansea in Bloom 2015 competition. The award marks on an improvement on Swansea University’s entry into the Swansea in Bloom 2014 competition where it was awarded Bronze in the Best Business/Public Premises category.

Swansea University first entered Swansea in Bloom back in 2009 achieving Bronze in the Best Newcomer category along with a string of other awards since ranging from Gold to Highly Commended.

The awards compliment the hard work and dedication of a Grounds Management team who have grown and maintained many beautiful floral displays and arrangements across a vast estate. It is a token to Swansea University’s commitment to provide students, staff and visitors with visually beautiful campuses making Swansea a more attractive place to live, work and visit.

With the recent opening of the Bay Campus, the Grounds Management team now have to two large campuses to maintain and create even more floral displays in stunning locations overlooking Swansea Bay. With more opportunity to create dazzling and remarkable displays, Swansea University will be aiming for Gold in 2016.

Paul Edwards, Grounds Manager said:

“Although hard work the maintenance of the Universities grounds is worth it, to provide a relaxing pleasant environment for students and visitors alike to enjoy.”

Paul Robinson, Deputy Director of Estates and Facilities Management said:

“Congratulations to our Grounds Management team on winning Silver in the Best Large Business Category at the Swansea in Bloom awards. It is a great result – particularly when we are up against many hotels whose gardens are a key part of their commerciality.”
