The first stage of rejuvenating the Abbots Avenue planters kick-started in late May. A bit tricky with social distancing in mind so the core team took turns to weed, trim, dig and clean the beds.
We’re looking to repaint the planters soon, after consultation with local residents and Mandeville school, whose students painted the images on them quite a few years ago now.

We are slowly but surely introducing wonderful plants for the whole community to enjoy with an abundance of sage and oregano already on offer. We’ve added wild flowers for the local wildlife too!  Just waiting for some promised compost before we do any more planting.

If you’d like to be added to the watering rota for occasional watering duties, please keep an eye on the Facebook page for updates or contact us to receive our e-mail notifications.
