SW in Bloom 2017

The culmination of another busy year. With the baskets up in Penzance and the planters planted. And this year Penzance gives another entry into Britain in Bloom South West.


Our latest addition are the planters welcoming you to the West Cornwall Hospital. I watched the chap painting the WCH logo on them. He lay on the floor to do it. You really must go and see them.

Thanks to all the members who have worked so diligently in one way or another. And thank you for the continued support from the Penzance Town Council for watering and financial support. It would not be possible without all of you and especially to our Ken.

Congratulations – 2016 Bridget’s Cup Silver Gilt Award

I am pleased to announce that the Penzance Community Flora Group has this year been awarded the 2016 Bridget’s Cup Silver Gilt Award added to which is ‘Outstanding’ for Morrab Gardens and the Friends of Morrab Gardens and ‘Outstanding’  for Melville Durrant and The Princess May Recreation Ground.


My congratulations to everyone who was involved and thank you to Penzance Town Council who have supported us from the beginning and the Penlee Gardeners especially Tristen who without his dedication to watering our baskets and containers in Penzance, we could not continue. And, a very big thank you to our own Ken Prouse.
