Residents who brought colour and cultivation to the borough were rewarded at a special lunch as part of this year’s Havering in Bloom competition.

From best community garden to best hanging basket and best front garden, the gardening efforts from residents, businesses and schools were rewarded at a special lunch with the mayor of Havering at the Town Hall.

Councillor Dilip Patel, mayor of Havering said: “What a wonderful achievement by all and I would like to congratulate the winners but also everyone who took part.

“The dedication and work that has been shown by these residents, businesses and schools, is a fantastic reflection of how much they enjoy their communities and want to help to make it look nice.”

William Tansley Smith Sheltered Housing in Hornchurch scooped the award for best community garden, while the award for best hanging basket went to Leonard Wakinson from Hornchurch.
