Freda Receives an Honour

We are delighted to announce that Freda has been recognised for her services to the NSPCC and the community of Bromley, in the New Years Honours list.

For over 13 years Freda has raised money for a number of charities, including the NSPCC, and as part of the National Garden Scheme, from opening her personal gardens to the public several times a year, and hosting events to the delight of her visitors.  Freda has raised over £74,000 for charity to date.

“Freda’s open garden events have been very popular over the last 13 years and have helped to raise a staggering amount of money for the NSPCC and other causes.  It’s clear Freda puts her heart and soul into her gardens and it’s amazing that she shares them with everyone, to help children and young people at risk of abuse. Well done Freda – this award is so incredibly well deserved!” Rachel Sullivan, NSPCC Community Fundraising Manager for London

Commended in Best Large Back Garden category - Bromley in Bloom

Awards for Best Large Back Garden 2018

It’s been a fun, but exhausting year maintaining the garden, especially with the exceptionally hot weather we experienced during the mid-Summer months, but this hasn’t stopped me from entering my garden into two competitions.

Firstly I was visited by representatives from Coolings Garden Centre who were judging this years ‘Bromley in Bloom 2018’ competition. They were especially impressed with my vegetable area.

I was very happy to be Commended in the Best Back Garden category, winning a certificate and shield.

I was also awarded with a Silver award in the Best Large Back Garden category in The London Garden Society (All London Championship) .

Both set of judging took place in mid-July during the height of the hot weather.
