The Village Gardeners received a certificate for carrying out ?outstanding? work in Sonning Common in the It?s Your Neighbourhood Awards. They are now considering entering the Britain in Bloom Awards next year.

Chrissie Phillips-Tilbury, who chairs the group, said she was ?surprised? at the award.

She said: ?We came top of the Oxfordshire category because we were the only ?outstanding? group, which is great because it?s only the first year we?ve done it. It has been a joy and pleasure to do. We will now have a big think about whether to do the Britain in Bloom entry. If the group wants to do it, we will.?

Barbara Butler, a member of the group, said she had lived in the village for 40 years and had never seen it look so good.
