Britain in Bloom Celebration

Stuart and I represented GFAA today at Aberdeen Council’s lunch to celebrate the award of a Gold Certificate to the city in the 50th Anniversary Year of the Britain in Bloom Competition.

Lord Provost George Adam made a very good speech thanking the 26 community groups represented for their help in securing the highest possible level of award from the judges. He included a very good line about Aberdeen being a city of grey stone, but green spaces and clearly was delighted with the city’s recognition for the efforts of its diverse horticultural communities.

It was good to have GFAA’s contribution to this success noted along with all of the others.
