Patients and staff at a Romford hospital have won awards in a nationwide gardening competition.
Suttons Manor, of Stapleford Tawney, London Road, won the largest vegetable category for a 71cm-long marrow and was commended for a book created to outline patients’ experiences during the contest.
Keith Chester, an occupational therapist at Suttons Manor, said: “The gardening competition provided an excellent opportunity for staff and patients to work together to achieve positive results.
“There was a real sense of teamwork and problem solving, especially through challenges such as rabbits and also a peacock getting into our vegetable patches.”
