Portchester Crematorium is delighted to announce that it has been awarded Gold at this year’s South and South East in Bloom awards.

The South and South East in Bloom campaign is the largest horticultural campaign in the region, involving 100’s of communities each year. It is the only campaign that takes an integrated approach to community improvement, and which uses gardening and horticulture as its foundation.

The ceremony was held on Friday 29 September at RHS Gardens Wisley, where Portchester Crematorium was not only highlighted as a Gold winner, but also the winner of the whole ‘Cemetery/Crematorium’ category.

Chair of the Portchester Crematorium Joint Committee, Councillor Lulu Bowerman (Havant BC), said: “This is an amazing accomplishment and well-deserved. The team at Portchester Crematorium work tirelessly to keep the grounds looking wonderful. On behalf of the Joint Committee I would like to offer congratulations to everyone involved in creating horticultural excellence in a place that provides beauty, comfort and place of reflection to so many local people.”
