Blooming brilliant garden team win gold and silver – again!
Every year, two specialist English gardening organisations make awards for outstanding gardens, parks and community green areas within Greater London. We only began to compete a couple of years ago, and to our delight in 2015 we won Silver for the ‘Large Private Square category’ in the London Squares Garden Competition, and Gold for ‘Small Park of the Year’ awarded by London in Bloom.
I’m delighted to be able to tell you that our head gardener Sarah Syborn (pictured in the attached image receiving her award) and her three colleagues Mandy, Craig and Mick have excelled themselves even further this year, by retaining their Gold award (just announced) for London in Bloom, and raising the level of their award to Silver-Gilt in the London Squares Garden Competition. There are hundreds of applicants for these awards, so it is a major achievement to win either of the top ones once, much less twice over two years.
Please join the Company Board and me in congratulating our gardening team, preferably when you meet them in the garden! It is very encouraging that a small focused team like them, working with an entirely voluntary group of Board directors and Garden Committee members, can maintain the classic features of an historic, listed Grade 2 Victorian garden; while simultaneously adapting it into a Gold-medal winning garden, particularly admired by the judges for its deliberately environmentally-friendly aspects in a 21st-century context.
