I would like to sincerely thank everyone for their enthusiasm, hard work and commitment, and for making our area of the City of Bristol a greener, healthier, and happier place in which to live and work.
I also wish to sincerely thank the local City Councillors and the council officers for all their kind support, advice, and commitment.
It has been a wonderful team effort, and a marvellous opportunity to showcase the St George area of the City of Bristol.’

Councillor Asher Craig said:-
‘I'm absolutely thrilled at the success of St George in Bloom who literally swept the board at the regional RHS Awards. A special mention has to go out to Grenville Johnson the Chair of SGIB. He works incredibly hard and his passion & devotion to making St George a standout garden oasis in an urban community has resulted in our incredible win - 3 years in the row. Next week are the National RHS Awards and I don't want to jinx anything but given our sweeping success I am feeling pretty confident.
Well done Grenville and all the volunteers who worked incredibly to bring this great success to Bristol.’
