Congratulations to Julie Davis and Aida Trabucco for winning First and Third places in the”Best Tree Pit” category at last night’s Islington in Bloom awards! Julie won for her tree garden outside number 39 (left, above), and Aida for her tree garden outside number 2/4 (right, above). The prize money and vouchers will fund the next year’s planting. Ockendon Road has looked particularly beautiful this year, thanks to everyone who worked and helped with the gardens.

Islington Borough also won first prize in the London in Bloom awards for 2015 which has only ever been achieved once before. Here is a picture of Julie receiving her certificate. Look out for more photos in this weeks Islington Gazette!
