HCGA is pleased to announce we have been awarded Outstanding for the first time in the RHS London in Bloom Awards. The hard work of the volunteers and staff has paid off as the judges recognised the effort that had gone in to making the site look beautiful.
“Congratulations to the HCGA for this richly-deserved award, which confirms our belief that community groups are the experts when it comes to developing and improving their local area,” said Cllr Wesley Harcourt, H&F Cabinet Member for Environment. “So many people from all walks of life have gained vital skills, and been introduced to the simple pleasures of planting and growing their own plants and produce through the brilliant work at Ravenscourt Park.”
HCGA Director Cathy said: “The outstanding award for the glasshouses work is a real boost as we are just starting to look for funding to replace the existing glasshouses that are in need of improvement,”
“Our volunteers are key to the success of all our sites. They help with maintenance and at Loris Gardens and Godolphin Gardens, sites which are open to the public, and check that they are safe and welcoming spaces. There are also lots of opportunities for residents get involved.”
We have just been granted planning permission to replace the glasshouses and are beginning to fund raise for this.
