Blooming marvellous! Vineyard and Orchard share award

The Farm’s Vineyard and Orchard projects celebrated success at the Enfield In Bloom awards on Thursday, when they collected an award for ‘Exceptional Horticultural Contribution for the Local Community’.

The award is testament to the hard work of all the volunteers involved in the two projects. Vineyard volunteer Dan Crook and Tony Roper, who works with both the vineyard and the orchard, collected the award at a ceremony on Thursday evening.

Enfield in Bloom is a scheme which encourages improvements to the local environment through horticultural best practice, environmental awareness, community involvement and sustainability.
The main emphasis with ‘In Bloom’ campaigns is environmental and sustainability issues, which are key themes of the nationwide ‘Britain in Bloom’ campaign.

The Bronze award is in recognition for the Farm’s Vineyard and Orchard projects, which are both reliant on local volunteers. The Orchard has been designed by Capel Manor College student Tessa Bishopp.
