Four gardens that had been untouched for the past 20 years have been transformed from an overgrown mess into a public garden the whole of the South Lambeth estate can enjoy. The Bolney Meadow Group has now been handed an award from the Britain in Bloom organisers.
The gardening group worked with the council’s Community Freshview team to clear the land and create the space to make the garden a reality. The gardeners have been recognised with a Royal Horticultural Society Britain in Bloom Neighbourhood award.
“Community Freshview is a fantastic scheme that has helped community groups from across Lambeth make a difference to run down parts of the borough . Whether you want to brighten up an area of green space, give a facelift to a disused area of land or any other activity that improves your local environment, Community Fresh view can help you do it.”
