The winners of Hounslow Homes annual gardening competition were announced on the 25 July at the beautiful Winter Garden, Spring Grove House, Isleworth.

The 2007 competition enjoyed record entries in every category, with the summers deluge of rain failing to dampen the enthusiasm of the Boroughs green-fingered residents.

The long-running competition continues to blossom, reaching out to residents from every section of the community. The presentation evening was fittingly held at the former residence of Joseph Banks, the famous botanist and creator of Kew Gardens.

Julie Brooker, chair of Hounslow Federation of Tenants and Residents Associations (HFTRA) said: "The competition is a wonderful opportunity to reward tenants for bringing a splash of colour to Hounslow Homes estates. A lot of hard work goes into maintaining gardens and window boxes and its a great way for tenants to become involved in their community".

After months of rain the sun happily put its hat on for the Bridgelink centre's fun day on the Ivybridge estate in July. A lively afternoon saw residents enjoy a range of stalls and events, including an energetic Irish dancing dispaly and a visit from some residents of Hounslow's Urban Farm. Other highlights included some funky music from a live band, a children's fairground ride and a 'beat the goalie' competition run by Brentford Football Club. A fun day was indeed had by all!
