Update 02/11/2016: We are really overwhelmed to hear the Student Gardening Society has been awarded 96% at level 5 (the highest level possible) in this years RHS Britain in Bloom National Award.
Assessor, Joanne Preston said: "Overall LAGS is a fantastic IYN group, they have continued to improve their allotment future and their links with other groups within the area. The uses of the space are brilliant and they are committed to creating a haven for all wildlife and people. The expansion of the fruit route is clear evidence of their effect on the University, their drive to connect with local people and groups is inspirational".
Thanks to all of our volunteers who made this possible and keep up the hard work!
