Havering Council

Judges from the prestigious annual London in Bloom competition have paid a visit to Havering.

From Langtons Gardens, Hornchurch, and the Elm Park shopping centre, to Havering Town Hall gardens, Romford, and the Norfolk Road Allotment Site, Upminster Bridge, the judges were given a tour of some of the borough’s prettiest places.

At Rainham Hall, the judges also got a chance to speak to Mayor of Havering Councillor Linda Van den Hende and cabinet member for culture and community engagement Councillor Melvin Wallace.

He said: “It was great having the judges back in the borough for London in Bloom, to show them the true beauty of Havering.

“This is a good time of year for residents to get out and about and make the most of the fantastic parks, green spaces and huge variety of flowers which the borough has to offer.”

The results will be announced later this year.
