RHS in Bloom Awards
This year the Friends of Walkden Gardens group was entered for an RHS In Bloom Its Your Neighbourhood award for the first time. The award is judged on horticulture, community and environment. In August some of the committee gave two RHS judges a tour of the gardens telling them all about the Friends.
We are very pleased to say the Friends have been awarded Level 5 Outstanding which is the highest level from the RHS and NW in Bloom. Also Walkden Gardens has received a Highly Commended Award from Britain in Bloom Northwest.
Thank you to everyone who has volunteered and supported the Friends to make Walkden Gardens what it is today.
