RBKC has won loads of awards for the gardens and parks we all love and enjoy. The glory list is long for K&C, one of London’s most densely populated borough, which won a bunch of awards in this year’s London in Bloom competition. There is an In Bloom award for biodiversity, gold in the City Category while seven parks received gold awards and two earned silver gilt awards.
Here is the winning list: Little Wormwood Scrubs won gold and the Large Park of the Year Award even though it is Little.
The St Quintin Avenue Community Kitchen Garden was named Allotment Award runner up, and it is a garden created just five years ago on a disused tennis court. Tempting to talk about runner beans and it being a big hit.
Eleven of the borough’s community gardens received an ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ Award, the most of any London borough.
Finally, The Churchill Arms, Kensington Church Street, won Best Pub Display and was runner up in the Floral Display Award.
And it will get even better. Cllr Tim Ahern, the Royal Borough’s Cabinet Member for the Environment, says: “We are not going to rest on our laurels because we’re always looking for new areas to green and new ways to enhance the borough’s biodiversity. Our gardeners, residents and parks teams are always up for the challenge of maintaining our high standards.“ londoninbloom
