Roll out the barrels…

A big thanks to everyone who turned up on Friday 31 May and Saturday 1 June 2019 to help paint and plant the barrels that now grace the north entrance to Tradescant Road. 

Even bigger thanks to Helen and John for organising it all.

Helen had successfully applied for funding from the Veolia Recycling Fund for Communities to pay for much of this project. Fantastic stuff.

She also went to a a huge amount of trouble researching the plants themselves — each one is associated with the Johns Tradescant in some way. 

The hope is that these planters will mark out this area as unmistakably residential and discourage some of the ant-social behaviour which the weekends often bring.
