Outstanding Assessment for Knighton Green
Knighton Wild’s work in St Mary’s Churchyard and on Knighton Green is entered in the It’s Your Neighbourhood scheme run by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). Each year an assessor visits us to review progress and make an assessment based around community participation, environmental responsibility and gardening achievement. This is the third year we have been part of the scheme and in previous years we have been pleased to get a grade 3 (improving) but this year we have excelled ourselves and got a grade 5 outstanding! Paul Collingwood the RHS assessor visited us in early September and following that Nicky and Bev went to the awards celebration to hear our results. The council support the RHS scheme across the city, and each participating group gets £25 in gardening gift vouchers which is useful too.
