For the third year running, Charlton Community Gardens has received awards at the London in Bloom award event held at The Arts Pavilion in Mile End Park.
This year is the 50th Anniversary of London in Bloom, and was an extra special event. Pat and Jane, who attended on behalf of C.C.Gs, enjoyed a lovely environment on a warm autumn day. There were some beautiful flower arrangements, good food and live music.
But the best bit…. was C.C.Gs being awarded gold for “Our Community” as well as joint best in category (so a certificate and a glass trophy). We also got outstanding in the “It’s Your Neighbourhood” category – again, another certificate. We shared this award with Chiswick House, and they very kindly included our name as joint winners of the ‘Our Community Award 2017, which we didn’t do…….. now amended. Thanks Chiswick House.

Charlton Community Gardens were not the only entry from the Royal Borough of Greenwich; there were a number of other very successful entries. Jane met the Mayor, who was attending on behalf of other projects.
