Our volunteer-led Gardening Club have been recognised for the fifth consecutive year as being 'Outstanding' by the Royal Horticultural Society at the 2022 North West in Bloom's awards.
Joseph Gardiner - Volunteer Lead at Galloway's, said:
Our Gardening Club at Howick House have worked tirelessly to receive five successive 'Outstanding' awards from Britain in Bloom RHS. The award has earned them a special Gold recognition that puts the community garden amongst a very small group of winners from the North West. We are incredibly proud of the club and thank everyone for their commitment and dedication to Galloway's."
Bernard Pendleton, Chair of Britain in Bloom, said:
"Jim and the team should be proud of themselves for all their hard work to attain the award for five years on the trot."
Our award-winning Gardening Group continues to transform the gardens at Galloway's, but more importantly, the group has given blind and partially sighted people the opportunity to enjoy gardening despite being impacted by sight loss.
