Ten of Enfield's beautiful parks and green spaces have grabbed gongs at the prestigious Enfield in Bloom awards, in recognition of their contribution in turning the borough into a riot of glorious colour.
Prize winners included schools, residents, pubs and public spaces, which will all receive special certificates. To celebrate the achievement Cllr Daniel Anderson, Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment, joined with Cllr Yasemin Brett, Cabinet Member for Community, Arts and Culture, as they visited the beautiful walled garden at Forty Hall.
Led by Jo-Ann Brown from the Friends of Forty Hall Park they saw for themselves the well tended garden, which is as much a haven for wildlife as it is for visitors.
Cllr Anderson said: "Enfield Council is rightly proud of its glorious parks and green spaces, and I would like to thank our gardening staff, together with our Friends of Parks groups, who have demonstrated a remarkable degree of skill and ability to produce such spectacular displays. I congratulate them all on the fruits of their labours.
"Enfield in Bloom is one of the jewels in the borough's horticultural crown and each and every person involved in this competition, regardless of how they got on, has made a significant contribution to the look and feel of this wonderful borough."
