Waverley Borough Council has been presented with two prestigious In Bloom awards for its parks in Godalming and Farnham.

The Phillips Memorial Park in Godalming was presented with a gold award and Gostrey Meadow in Farnham with a silver gilt award at the South and South East In Bloom Awards.

Judges viewed the parks over the summer and said the Phillips Memorial Park, which also won a Green Flag Award this year, was “both attractive and well-managed with very supportive volunteers” and was “clean, tidy and well managed throughout.” The judges also praised Gostrey Meadow for its play area, clear signage, the riverside areas and tree specimens and borders.
