Day in and day out, the Floral Guernsey Council work tirelessly to ensure that Guernsey stays as beautiful as ever.
Pat and his family moved to Guernsey from Scotland seven years ago and since then, the keen gardener has been a very active member of the Floral St Peter Port team.
He joined as Chairman in 2013 and brings a wealth of new ideas and enthusiasm to Floral Guernsey:
“I realise the huge importance and massive impact that Floral Guernsey has on the island. The projects are wide and varied such as working to promote gardening in schools, organising floral events and festival weeks, enhancing the beauty of the island through the parish floral groups community competition and the projects to improve public places. There is a lot more to Floral Guernsey than you think”.
“I am truly honoured to be part of such a hard-working team of volunteers, who give up so much of their time to help support our floral efforts.”
Pat, a retired businessman, and owner of the magnificent gardens of Grange Court, describes himself as hard working and practical by nature. “I enjoy a challenge and having seen what Floral Guernsey has achieved over the last 20 years, I am very much looking forward to playing my part in the next chapter. Floral Guernsey has some hugely exciting events and projects coming up, so watch this space!
Vice Chairman & Community Competition Co-Ordinator
John is a National RHS judge, and is responsible for the Floral Guernsey Community Parish Competitions throughout the islands.The competition winner subsequently represents the Bailiwick in the regional finals of the RHS Britain in Bloom competition.
Having spent a lifetime in the Property business, mainly overseas, I semi retired to Guernsey fifteen years ago and immediately got involved in St. Martin's Parish affairs. I am a member of the Parish Floral Group, a Douzenier and the Parish Constable. That, therefore does not give much spare time for hobby's especially when you add my job with Floral Guernsey, which as "Education Coordinator" involves me in trying to think of interesting ways and means of getting the children of our Bailiwick Schools out of the classroom.
