Gardening team helps Airedale Hospital to bloom
8:00am Wednesday 14th August 2013 in News
Airedale Hospital could blossom in a regional competition.
The grounds and gardens have been nominated for an award in the public and private charitable establishments category of Yorkshire in Bloom.
The nomination was made by the Friends of Airedale, whose chairman Eileen Proud said: “The gardeners at Airedale do a fantastic job so I thought they deserved some recognition for their hard work keeping the hospital’s surroundings looking at their best.”
Support for the gardening team during the year has been provided by the Friends and Skipton Soroptimists, who donated bulbs and equipment.
Steve Marshall, head gardener at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are very grateful to the Friends and Soroptimists for their generous donations, which have helped us create a colourful display in the flower beds at our west entrance and look after many other areas across the hospital grounds.
“I’d also like to thank the gardening team, as this really is a team effort, and say how proud I am of what they achieved at the hospital in preparation for the judges’ visit.”
The judges spent a couple of hours at the site and the winners will be announced next month.
