London in Bloom Awards – Both the station and the orchard achieve top awards

This year was the first year that an entry to London in Bloom was made for the orchard in Charlton Park.  And it achieved the top awards.  The orchard was classified as outstanding for “It’s Your Neighborhood” and achieved a gold standard award for “Our Community”.

The garden at Charlton station also gained the same high level awards – outstanding and gold. Maintaining consistently high standards can be difficult, but once again we have managed it.

Thank you everyone who made this possible; our form fillers, waterers, weeders, garden admirers, bed diggers, mulchers, garden designers, planting plotters, kit buyers, broken equipment menders, leafleteers, lectern makers, you know who you are. ……

Kate and I were very proud to receive the awards on behalf of C.C.G at an event held on Friday 21st September at The Arts Pavilion in Mile End Park.  It was a glorious sunny day and the venue is beautifully situated beside a small lake.
