Residents’ of Blackwood Court in Cheshunt were delighted to win prizes at the annual Broxbourne in Bloom awards on Wednesday 7th September. Receiving first place in ‘Best Garden in Competition’ and ‘Best Social Housing Garden’.
Blackwood Courts’ gardening club started 4 years ago and is funded jointly by B3Living and residents, who fundraise for the club. With the money raised each year, residents’ have managed to purchase their own lawn mower to keep the grass in pristine condition.
Members of the club worked very hard this year to make their gardens visually delightful, with the building of an additional two raised garden beds to help encourage other residents with mobility issues to join.
The event organised by Broxbourne Borough Council was held at Cheshunt Park Golf Club, with Blackwood Court residents’ and B3Living staff in attendance to receive their awards.
