Townsend RHS It's Your Neighbourhood Award

The Royal Horticultural Society’s 'It's Your Neighbourhood' campaign is part of the wider Britain in Bloom initiative, providing an opportunity for smaller community groups to get involved.

Special thanks to Anne & Joan who went along to the Award ceremony in Brighton.

Based on a judging visit earlier in the year, each community that enters receives a certificate of achievement of either Establishing, Improving, Advancing, Thriving or Outstanding.

Townsend achieved a 'THRIVING'! Well done to everyone involved!
