Dear Penge Green Gym Supporters


Visitors and prizes for Winsford Gardens

A few weeks ago we were very excited to collaborate with Project Dirt in welcoming a group of corporate volunteers to Winsford Gardens.  The lovely staff of Dentsu Aegis came with great enthusiasm and helped us start our wildlife meadow fence which we had decided to rebuild in a more sturdy fashion.  They also helped with clearing the wildflower meadow of plant matter in preparation for the winter and other tasks.  Many thanks to Project Dirt and Denstu Aegis for making the day a great success.


Bromley in Bloom and Penge in Bloom

Thanks to all the hard work of our army of volunteers we were awarded 3rd place at Bromley in Blooms 'Best Community Ornamental Project' and 2 awards from Penge in Bloom for 'Most ecologically friendly garden or plot and 'Most interesting residential/community area'. Thank you to Alexander Nurseries for the presentation.  Well done everyone!


In Other News
We now have all of our urban orchard signs up and the area looks very smart.  We have also splashed out on some rocks to edge the bog garden with and it now looks well defined and finished.  We have also received a load of soil improver from the council and will be spreading it over the beds to keep them warm for winter.
