Almshouse resident in Walthamstow wins London gardening award
A green-fingered resident has won first place in a London-wide gardening competition.
Mary Fahey, 70, has scooped top prize in the ‘balcony and patio display’ category in the annual London Almshouses Gardens Competition.
The display at her home at the Sir George Monoux Almshouses in Church End, Walthamstow, includes wall-mounted garden chairs to display pot plants.
Ms Fahey, a grandmother-of-eight, will receive her award at a ceremony at the Guildhall on Thursday.
She said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to bits. It’s just wonderful. I’ve got my best frock out already.”
Ms Fahey is a semi-retired teacher and community radio DJ.
