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.

sr-and-kpKen and Melville- well done

Yours sincerely
