Whiston Hospital wins gold award for its gardens
HALTON patients at two hospitals can now enjoy flowers, trees and plants.
Whiston and St Helens hospitals have won a prestigious ‘North West in Bloom Gold Medal’ for the quality of their gardens and grounds.
Both hospitals received a gold medal for the exceptional maintenance of their grounds and gardens, the range of attractive and colourful flowers and plants, and their environmentally friendly approach.
The competition recognises the excellent work carried out by organisations to improve the environment through the imaginative use of flowers, plants and trees.
Chief executive Ann Marr, who lives in Widnes, said: “We are delighted to be awarded with the gold medal in this prestigious competition, for each of our hospital grounds and gardens.
“The trust has a responsibility to its patients and visitors to ensure that the hospital environment is welcoming and kept to a high standard.
“This award recognises the hard work and dedication of our partners David J Platt Landscapes Ltd. As well as using beautiful flowers and plants to create eye-catching gardens, the team help to keep the grounds clean and tidy all year round.”
