Bloom awards for Old Or­chard

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A HARE­FIELD pub had a bloom­ing bril­liant re­sult in the bor­ough’s am­a­teur gar­den­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

The Old Or­chard, in Park Lane, Hare­field, won a string of awards in Hilling­don in Bloom, in­clud­ing Best Bloom­ing Pub and Best Business Premises. Land­lord Daniel Red­fern said: “We have al­ways planted in the gar­den and grown veg, which we use in our food, and I do quite a lot of the work my­self be­cause I en­joy it. But this year I worked with our gar­dener to cre­ate our win­dow boxes and be­cause of the nice weather and the great views of the Colne Val­ley and Hare­field’s lakes, we used our gar­den a lot in the sum­mer.”

Judg­ing of the coun­cil-run com­pe­ti­tion took place in July and win­ners were an­nounced last week.
