The judges wanted to recognise his unwavering commitment as a volunteer to help maintain various open spaces in Selsey, in particular East Beach Pond and Selsey Common. They were also very impressed with his knowledge of local flora and fauna and enjoyed the wonderful overview he gave of the areas during their judging tours.
He was one of only three people chosen to receive this award across the whole of the South & South-East in Bloom judging area, which includes about 300 communities.
Members of the East Beach Pond Group gathered to celebrate Dave’s award with bubbly and nibbles, at the end of their regular Tuesday afternoon session at the pond.
