Awards 2011 – Woodley Town Centre Management Initiative
Berkshire Gardens Trust visited Woodley Town Council and met the Civic Manager who explained the community purpose of the planting and hanging baskets scheme, to attract visitors and business opportunities to the Town. Finance had been organised through local fund-raising initiatives and sponsorship by local traders. Berkshire Gardens Trust toured the Town Centre, and saw 10 planters and,42 hanging baskets in and around the shopping precinct. They were also impressed to hear about the Gardening Day organised for nurseries in the area and local children. To recognise the community benefit of the scheme to the people of Woodley, Berkshire Gardens Trust have resolved to present a “Commended” Certificate to Woodley Town Council.
