We Did it Again……….. London in Bloom Awards September 22nd 2017

The Cake…….


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.  See more about them  here http://chiswickhouseandgardens.org.uk

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.

C.C.G. Annual General Meeting and Gardening Party – Sunday 1st October 10-12 a.m. …… there will be cake!!!!

Our annual General Meeting will be incorporated into our October gardening party, as we have done in previous years.


We hold the brief meeting under the awning at Charlton Station.


In common with all AGMs, there will be reports giving a brief overview of activities over the past year, money spent and received and plans for the next year.  Suggestions and ideas for future activities are also very welcome.  The meeting is not intimidating, and the fact that we stand up for the duration,  makes sure that we are succinct and to the point.  There will also be refreshments.


Please join us for both  the gardening party, which starts at 10.00 and the meeting at 11.
