On Thursday 21st March 2019, the charity Bankside Open Spaces Trust, based in Southwark, celebrated the start of a new growing season and looked back at last year’s successes.
Bankside Open Spaces Trust is a small environmental and volunteering organisation working to protect, preserve and enhance parks and gardens in London SE1. The aim is to be able to improve peoples lives by making where they live more enjoyable and greener. This charity has accomplished a number of great achievements in the area such as reopening the Marlborough Sports Garden, putting together the Great Get Together Street Party and winning 5 gardening awards for their open spaces based in Waterloo that are now enjoyed freely by thousands of kids.
Bankside Open Spaces Trust not only supports regular gardening groups, but also trains new gardeners for free with their Future Gardeners scheme.
This celebration took place at our famous Hop Exchange, located in the heart of London Bridge. The evening was filled with positive stories from a whole range of people, accompanied by great food and drink.
The event was attended by Professor Kevin Fenton, who is the Director of Place and Wellbeing at Southwark Council. He spoke about the future importance of social wellbeing. Multi award winner garden designer, Jo Thompson also spoke about her journey in garden design.
Throughout this evening, many awards were given out to different individuals and organisations who have supported the charity with their time and money and have helped make a big difference in the area. Our local resident and Olympic Athlete, Tom Daley, was present to thank the London Marathon Charitable Trust for their support. Southwark Mayor, Councillor Catherine Rose presented the Business Champion award to Keltbray. The event concluded with the Outstanding Contribution award going to one of the long-standing volunteers, Sergio Bono, presented by the new Bankside Open Spaces Trust CEO.
This year, Bankside Open Spaces Trust is expecting continued success with many new projects such as the Children’s Easter Egg Hunt and a Spring Clean with Better Bankside.
Peer Group thank this charity for providing hard working Londoners places to play, relax and enjoy the sun.
