At Contemplation Corner Woodcroft Wildspace N21
Enfield in Bloom wish to thank Bob Ladell and his team at the Woodcroft Wildspace for clearing and establishing an area now called “Contemplation Corner” for our new Memorial Bench. The bench already has several plaques commemorating Committee Members who have passed, and some of our present Committee had a toast in memory of them. Our Chairman Dennis planted one of two roses to frame the bench. A willow arch has been planted and this will eventually shade the area.
Enfield In Bloom entered gardens into The London Garden Society Awards, and the results were as follows:

The ten plant containers outside the Civic Centre had looked very neglected over recent times and Enfield in Bloom decided that some immediate action was needed.
On Friday 2nd November, eleven Committee Members formed a working party to re-plant the containers. They put on their gardening gloves and armed with their trowels got to work in the sunshine.
Clockhouse Nursery very generously donated all the plants and replacement compost.
Residents and visitors to the Civic Centre commented on the hard work going on and the beautiful result of the finished planting.

On a beautiful sunny day in Enfield:
Enfield in Bloom volunteers plant the new Swale area at the Prince of Wales Wetlands.
Pupils from Prince of Wales Primary School, Enfield in Bloom Competition Gold Award winners, also helped by planting lots of Daffodil and Snowdrop bulbs that will come to life in the early Spring.
Enfield in Bloom also visited the Walled Garden at Forty Hall, Competition Gold Award Winners, to see the work going on in maintaining this exceptional space to it’s very high standard. They gave some of their Marigold thinnings to Enfield in Bloom to plant at the Prince of Wales Wetlands
