This year we are submitting Longford Park ( as well as the Community Allotment and the Wildlife Garden which we submitted last year ) for these awards. It is not a competition but a way of improving our neighbourhood together and we are working with Stretford in Bloom to do this….. We hope all the groups in the park will be involved as well as the residents by making a special effort to plant flowers, vegetables and herbs all around the park – so that it will look especially good when the judging takes place in July. Please involve people of all ages and from different communities who use the park – talk about it and be proud of our shared spaces. Thanks ! If you want to know more please contact Mash / Margaret Westbrook at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0161 865 6064.
