THE Friends of King George V Playing Fields (FoKGVPF) have once
again received the 'Britain In Bloom' highest award - level 5
(outstanding) in the North West Britain in the Britain in Bloom,
Royal Horticultural Society's, 'It’s your Neighbourhood'
This followed an inspection of the work that Friends' volunteers
have done in the Ashton park - not merely care of the plants and
trees, but everything else carried
out by community volunteers such as Georgie Porgies cafe, the bees
team, the rubbish pool club and the site maintenance team.
Recently retired Friends chairman Alan Fish, who was in charge for
most of the year, said: “Once again this top In Bloom award shows
what a good job the King George’s volunteers do for all the people
using the great facilities in the park.”
If you would like to get involved with the group and help out in the
