Residents, holiday home owners and staff at Badger Hill Park, near Knaresborough in North Yorkshire, have been acknowledged for their horticultural skills by winning two prestigious awards.
The residential and holiday park was named ‘Best Neighbourhood 2013’ in the Knaresborough in Bloom competition, and received an ‘OUTSTANDING’ overall in the ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ category in the Royal Horticultural Society’s Yorkshire in Bloom awards.
The dedicated and enthusiastic gardeners of Badger Hill are immensely proud of their achievements and particularly the Royal Horticultural Society judges’ summary, which said Badger Hill had ‘superbly maintained gardens’ and ‘impressive displays’ that showed ‘great imagination’ together with ‘very accomplished horticultural skills’.
They were presented with their Royal Horticultural Society Yorkshire in Bloom award on the 13th of September at York Racecourse and collected their Knaresborough in Bloom award just three days later at Knaresborough House – it is the third time Badger Hill has won the title of Best Neighbourhood.
Commenting on the awards, Barton Park Homes Managing Director, Charlie Barton Jnr, said: “I would like to congratulate everyone at Badger Hill as these awards are only achieved through dedication and meticulous attention to detail.
“It’s a testament to the hard work of all the residents, holiday home owners and staff who spend the spring and summer cultivating and titivating to make [p2p type=”slug” value=”badger-hill-park-homes-in-yorkshire”]Badger Hill[/p2p] such a beautiful place to live and holiday.
“We all work hard to keep our parks looking their best year-round, but through the summer they really come into their own.”
