Citizen of the Year – James Good

Long-time Darts Hill volunteer, James Good, has been honoured by the City of Surrey as 2018 Good Citizen of the Year. James was an acquaintance of Francisca Darts and has been volunteering at Darts Hill for over 20 years.

James volunteered with the first comprehensive garden labelling project, has been a weeder, is still working with the Propagation Group, usually doing the heavy work, and as a Guide Emeritus continues to engage with garden visitors on Open Days. When the Society was first formed, the Board of Directors were in need of a Treasurer, James was elected and accepted that position, serving for multiple terms. James is also a member of the Heron Park Demonstration Garden Maintenance Group and has donated extraordinary plants both to the garden and the Propagation Group.

Aside from his numerous roles at Darts Hill Garden Park James is involved in a number of other volunteer groups in the City of Surrey. We are lucky to have him so involved in the garden.
