The London Borough of Hillingdon has struck gold in the nationwide Britain in Bloom competition for its lovely local parks and gardens.
The 2017 winners were named at an awards ceremony last month with Hillingdon, West London, once again winning in the Large City category, impressing judges with its 200 open spaces and impressive Green Flag sites.
Alongside the Britain in Bloom award, Hillingdon was also named as winners in the 2017 Green Flag Awards. While the borough retained 42 Green Flags, it also expanded its collection with a further five new Green Flag sites including Cherry Lane Cemetery in Hayes, Southlands Arts Centre in West Drayton, Long Meadow in Eastcote and the Gravel Pitts in Northwood.
RHS Britain in Bloom is the UK’s largest horticultural campaign, running for over 50 years, which “encourages local gardeners to improve their environment through the imaginative use of flowers, trees, shrubs and landscaping”. By winning the competition, the considerable efforts of Hillingdon residents to make the community greener, cleaner and more beautiful have paid off.
Akash Sharma, Hillingdon resident and Assistant Property Manager – be:here Hayes said,
“As a local resident of Hillingdon myself, it’s wonderful that the borough has once again been named as a Britain in Bloom winner. You can see the hard work and dedication that many put into making the local area the very best it can be and that extends to us here at the Gatefold Building in Hayes. We think it’s a blooming great place to be.”
