The Friends of the Shuttle gardening group secured some well-deserved recognition when they achieved a Level 4 in the Royal Horticultural Society’s ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ competition at the 2018 London in Bloom awards in September. In addition they unexpectedly received the London in Bloom Community Garden of the Year 2018 award.The group also entered the Ruxley in Bloom competition and were awarded a Silver Certificate of Achievement in the Best Community garden Award Category. This was following some very busy and extra gardening sessions in the few weeks before judging in July and August, including a daily watering rota to help our new plants to survive the hot and dry summer.
The gardeners are very proud and pleased that their hard work has paid off!

The Friends’ volunteers have worked hard since April 2015 to maintain the beds and borders in Danson Park’s Old English Garden. They also continue to carry out their invaluable maintenance along Bexley’s rivers.
“I would like to thank the Friends of the Shuttle for everything they do to improve the environment for everyone. Their work also provides an opportunity for their volunteers to improve their own health and wellbeing and hope that more people will feel to help with the important work that they do.”
