Top students earn awards from guild

Students from four horticultural colleges were due to be presented with certificates and a £250 award by the Worshipful Company of Gardeners this week.

Pavlina Kapsalis and Matt Barker from RHS Wisley, Sarah Jarman and Sofia Marcotti from Capel Manor College, Karen Hook and Jocelyn Rose from Writtle College and Suzanne Patman and Martin Deasy from Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew were all nominated by colleges and invited to attended the guild's Autumn Court Dinner in Drapers' Hall, London.

The award is given "in recognition of an exceptional level of attainment achieved in horticultural studies".

Details of the Worshipful Company of Gardeners were first recorded in 1345 and it was one of the medieval craft guilds in the City of London. The guild is now one of the City's 108 livery companies, which are run as philanthropic fellowships with strong ties to education.
