A week ago, together with two colleagues from work, I travelled to the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham to attend a garden party and lunch followed by the 'The Greatest Team 2009' awards ceremony organised by Garden Trade News. This is a series of Garden Retail Awards either nominated by trade suppliers or voted by the general public.
After a superb five course lunch Sir Henry Cooper presented us with "The Greatest Wild Bird Care & Wildlife Team 2009" award for the RHS Plant Centre team and I got to shake the hand of "Our Henry".... now that was cool.
Just in case you are wondering from left to right are: Ben Laws, the "Early Birder" is holding the certificate,
Sir Henry Cooper, Brenda has got the bottle and Nige is holding the Award.
