Southfield residents in blooming success

Talented residents at Southfield House have scooped an array of prizes at the Addingham Allotments and Gardens annual show, held at the village memorial hall (12th August).

The busy gardening club at the Incommunities’ sheltered scheme won top prize for Southfield House for best Dahlias.

Individual prize winners included Margaret Porter for her display of Dahlias, which she has nurtured with her husband Ramon, and Anne Powell, a 'double' winner for her floral art. In addition, Eileen Fielding scooped a runner’s up prize for her needlework.

The gardening club at Southfield House has been running over four years and takes great pride in maintaining flower beds and colourful hanging baskets and displays by the homes.

The club’s treasurer, Margaret Porter, said: "The show produced a fabulous crop of success for Southfield residents and everyone is over the moon.

"The gardening club is a popular weekly meeting point for green fingered residents and we take great pride in keeping the surrounds looking attractive for residents and visitors."

Bev Mullaney, Incommunities’ Support Services Manager, said: "A big well done to everyone at Southfield House on this well-deserved prize winning success.

"Gardening and craft work is a wonderful way of keeping active and enjoying one another’s company. It’s also great to see residents take such pride in where they live and working together to brighten the place for everyone to enjoy."
