Rookery wind gold award

Rock Garden

Yes, the Rookery (or Rock Garden) was entered into the annual South and South East small park category of ‘Cities in Bloom’ – and won gold, the highest of five standards. This is a tremendous achievement; Garden Manager Andy and the volunteers who have made the area so beautiful deserve our thanks. Denise Taylor, Chair of Brighton & Hove City in Bloom said ‘When there is so much focus on the withdrawal of funding in most sectors across the city it is wonderful to be able to celebrate areas where the importance of the environment we live in is acknowledged in this way’.
