Bloom awards for Old Orchard
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.
