Members will be pleased to know that BNSS did well again this year in the Bournemouth in Bloom Competition.
The Ginkgo Biloba came top of the Champion Tree category, winning a Silver Gilt certificate and a shield. The Sweet Chestnut also won a Silver Gilt certificate, came top of the Trees Contributing to BioDiversity category and won a cup. Our Witch Hazel tree gained a Silver as a Small Ornamental Tree, our back garden a Silver for being Environmentally Friendly, while in the Places of Learning category a Bronze was awarded. The trophies are now on display in the entrance at No 39.
We attach a panoramic photo of the back garden showing the Witch Hazel and the Sweet Chestnut trees; and another of the Ginkgo tree.
