SUCCESS FOR STATION ROAD GARDENS 2017


The Council’s Station Road Gardens site was really successful last year when it was entered into South & South East in Bloom for the first time.

 

 


 

In June 2017, Parish Council Clerk Greg Burt and Friends of Station Roads Gardens' Chairman Keith Brown, were delighted to show South & South East in Bloom Judge Jean Griffin around the gardens as she inspected the site for the Best Small Park category (see photo above).    Greg said, "It was a beautiful day, and Council contractors and the volunteers had pulled out all the stops to ensure the site was looking its very best. Jean had visited the site privately some years ago so was able to see how the site had developed since it was first laid out. A very experienced horticulturalist who lives in Horsham, Jean met some of the other volunteers and park users and was able to give Keith a few tips on some necessary pruning!

 

           Success!!!!!   

 

 

 

 

In September 2017, Stuart Sexton of the Friends of Station Road Gardens and Billingshurst Parish Clerk Greg Burt were delighted to attend the South & South East in Bloom Awards Ceremony at Copthorne, collecting a Silver Gilt Certificate for the Gardens in the Best Small Park Category.

Greg said "For our very first entry, this is a fabulous result and a tribute to the hard work of all the volunteers, staff and contractors who keep this site looking so good. As a past In Bloom Coordinator for Alton, it was great to catch up with some Bloomin' old friends too!"
