We were so pleased to be shortlisted again for Brighton and Hove City in Bloom Best Community Garden at this year’s awards on 15 September. We’ve been in the top three each year ever since we first entered in 2013. And this year, we gained third prize again, with our neighbours, Stanford Avenue Community Garden, coming second. Well done, all of us!
But we were perhaps even more chuffed by the accolade to our ‘community spirit’. Much to our surprise, we were awarded the Edward Furey Cup again for the garden showing the best community spirit. We won it previously in 2013 and there are so many great community gardens in Brighton and Hove, we really were taken aback. It’ll be on the table again with us when we have our annual harvest supper in October.
