A pub was third time lucky after it won gold at a gardening competition.

The Plume of Feathers in Park Vista, Greenwich, won the gold award for the best hanging baskets and window boxes in this year’s Greenwich in Bloom competition, after previously bagging the bronze and the silver.

Landlady Sue Rose, who has worked at the pub for 32 years, said: “We were going for gold. The staff worked hard to win the prize, watering the flowers religiously. They have surpassed themselves. Lots of customers remark on the flowers and we are in a residential road so we want to make the pub as pretty as possible as people on the road do a lot to maintain their gardens.”

Mrs Rose, is due to collect her certificate a ceremony at Woolwich town hall, after finding out about the win on August 13.
