Bexley comes up smelling of roses in two garden competitions
2:50pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
BEXLEY is blooming after a victorious performance in two garden competitions.
The borough won the Wakefield trophy last Thursday (October 3), after achieving the most points in the whole of the London Gardens Society awards.
Bexley also excelled in the London in Bloom competition last month and Mayor Councillor Sharon Massey and deputy mayor Councillor Geraldene Lucia-Hennis received a number of prizes on behalf of the borough.
Councillor Gareth Bacon, Bexley Council's cabinet member for environment and public realm, said: "I am delighted our efforts have once more been recognised so highly by these independent judges.
"In comparison to the other London boroughs our spending on parks and open spaces is extremely lean.
"This just goes to show what can be achieved by imaginative, prudent planning and by working in partnership with our community, who are willing to give up their time and skills to care for and improve their borough, making it a beautiful place to live and work."
