Sue Backhouse, Glenda Vincent and her team of volunteers celebrate another year of success with a SILVER GILT AWARD in the S and SE In Bloom competition. This year they did better than last year, but were just a tantalising two points short of a Gold award, which would have put them in the same league as the likes of Parham House, Hever Castle, and Osbourne House! The judges were particularly complimentary about the planting and maintenance of the garden with retention of some of the unique features created by Gertrude Jekyll. Unfortunately we have no record of the original plans at the Grange but the Archive team are going to try to identify them by searching the Archives of other libraries.
The Volunteering team meet once a month on a Thursday, and if you would like to join them please email Sue Backhouse at firstname.lastname@example.org
