A BIRCH Hill inn picked up a prestigious award at this year’s Bracknell in Bloom competition.

Councillor Sandra Ingham said: “As a local councillor for Hanworth I was delighted that one of our pubs Birch Hill’s The Silver Birch scooped second place in their category of Best Pub Garden.

“Sarah and her partner Rob have worked hard to dig up concrete and plant flowers creating a wrap around the side garden and a character place to sit at the back. Jameston neighbours also scooped second place for their best Street Gardens entry."

Cllr Ingham added: “Bracknell in Bloom is always looking for volunteer help of an administrative kind. 

“This is an inspirational community scheme which captures the heart and soul of our town. People get together, keep healthy and the gardens are good for the environment. 

“If readers are interested please contact Bracknell Town Council direct.”

Bracknell in Bloom’s Gala Evening was held at Bracknell and Wokingham College on Wednesday, October 25 with Bracknell Town Mayor in attendance.  

Entries covered a wealth of categories from the tallest sunflowers to community gardens, best front gardens, best school gardens and best pub. gardens to name but a few.
