in the whole of the South West.
They have achieved ‘Outstanding’ the highest commendation

The residents association campaigned to have all the street trees reinstated and
they created a community flower garden on a plot of unadopted land in the street.
Later, this was extended to create a community fruit, herb and vegetable garden.
The Chair of Kensington Road Residents Association, Grenville Johnson, led the setting
up of ‘St George in Bloom’ at the end of 2013, and we now have an enthusiastic group
of local volunteers who are keenly supporting & promoting this new initiative for
KENSINGTON RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION

In 2013 Grenville Johnson received the
Lord Mayor of Bristol’s medal
for his community & environmental work in
The community garden that the Residents Association created on the area of unadopted
land in Kensington Road.
