Tenants Celebrated in National Gardening Awards

We recently joined a presentation ceremony at Exeter Community Centre, hosted by celebrity gardener Toby Buckland, to celebrate St David's ward in Exeter having achieved the GOLD Award in the Town/City Pennant category of 'Britain in Bloom' 2017.

Every year the RHS runs the Britain in Bloom gardening competition to promote a greener environment and celebrate community participation in the UK.

Volunteers from across the St David’s area attended the presentation to celebrate the fantastic team effort put into achieving the award.

Particular congratulations are due to our tenants Lawrence, Susie and Nigel, as well as our gardener Paul, who were recognised for the hard work and commitment they put into making the gardens at our Mt Dinham almhouses so beautiful.

Cornerstone staff and tenants enjoyed celebrating the award at Exeter Community Centre. (Left-Right: Lawrence Skinner, Anne Seaborne; Nigel Devenish; Susie Brown; Rachel Coombe; Paul Jones)
