Bloom Award

Top Prize at Islington in Bloom Awards

On the 14th of September 2016, Stuart Low Trust’s amazing Gardening Club took a top prize in the Islington in Bloom competition, a celebration of all things horticultural in Islington Borough.

This year’s message was about grassroots activism, a perfect fit for SLT’s focus on combatting isolation and depression in the local Islington community.

Robin King and Hannah Kalmanowitz were on hand to collect the award for Best Community Centre Garden, which includes a 100 gift certificate to a garden centre, which will be spent on plants for next years garden.

We couldn’t be more pleased about the Gardening Club winning this award. Robin, Jane and the rest of the group do a fantastic job looking after our beautiful garden and this recognition is well deserved. – Hannah
