Congratulations to Garden Friends NW2
who recently won 2nd Place in this year's
Camden in Bloom awards!
The award was presented during the Camden in Bloom Awards Ceremony at Camden Town Hall on Monday, 8th September after we were shortlisted and inspected during a site visit to the tree pit gardens along Fordwych Road and St Cuthberts Road and the Community Garden at St Cuthbert's Church.
The Camden in Bloom award was given in recognition of Garden Friends NW2 efforts to use gardening to build a strengthened sense of community in our neighbourhood as well as to create beautiful and accessible green spaces for people and nature in Camden. (We hear they also loved our whimsical planted-up shoes as our signature theme!)
In addition to the award, Garden Friends NW2 received a gift certificate at Camden Garden Centre which will be used to provide even more natural beauty for our neighbourhood. How about more spring tulip and daffodil bulbs to bloom in April and welcome in the renewal of Spring to Fordwych Road? Something to look forward to for everyone!
And, our congratulations to our neighbouring project, the Kingsgate Garden Project, who walked off with the well-deserved 1st place prize! Not bad for the top two prizes in the Community Projects category to be awarded to grass-roots volunteer efforts in the far outposts of West Hampstead -Kilburn part of Camden.
Keep calm and carry on gardening to keep Camden in Bloom!
