A brief post – as I can’t keep up. We’re thrilled to have been shortlisted for two awards this summer – hoorah!
We’re one of three stations shortlisted for Southern Railway’s ‘Tsars and Stars’ awards for ‘best community station’. Madeleine will be going to the award-ceremony lunch in Lewes on August 23rd.
We’ve also been shortlisted for Brighton & Hove City in Bloom ‘best community garden’. The award ceremony, along with tea and cake, takes place on September 26th.
We should also find out mid-September the results of our ‘judging’ for the RHS South/South East in Bloom ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ scheme. We had an enjoyable visit from Ruth Growney back on July 18th and spent nearly two hours showing her the gardens and talking about what we do … while trying not to get sun-burned. The temperatures at the station were over 30C.
