Louisa Court wins Richmond-in-Bloom awards
Louisa Court in Twickenham has won two major awards in the Richmond-in-Bloom competition.
The gardens were awarded both the Gold and Category Winner in the 'Block of Flats' category. Well deserved congratulations must go to Ivy and Jenny Jenkins whose hard work and dedication in planting and maintaining the gardens contributed to the awards.
Ron & Ivy Jenkins together maintained the gardens until Ron’s death in 2007. Ivy then continued on her own until their daughter, Jennifer, moved into Louisa Court.
Louisa Court – named after H.A. Roberts’s mother, Louisa Job – is an apartment block of fourteen attractive flats built by the Roberts Foundation in 1966 and housed in its own landscaped grounds. Accommodation is exclusively for former employees of H.A. Job Ltd.
All the hard work done by the two ladies is very much appreciated by the tenants, who are not surprised to see people passing by admiring the front garden and who often stop to have a chat to Ivy and Jenny.
