During February half-term, the community got together to help transform the ordinary into the extraordinary by installing our latest Big Local flowerbed on Cranford High Street, opposite Cranford Community College. In the last year, we designed and developed the Redwood Allotment and also the ‘Welcome to Heston West’ flowerbed by Harlech Gardens, Cranford Lane. This time we joined forces once again with Sharnjeet Bhalla at Sunshine of Hounslow to create our newest addition the community, the project was funded by London Borough of Hounslow’s CIL grant.
We engaged with several families, students from Cranford Community College and members of our Big Local Youth Action Team to help transform this space. We are planning to officially open the flowerbed on Saturday 18th April 2020 with our Mayor of Heston West, Callum Wills.
We are looking forward to the flowers blossoming over the next few weeks and we would like to thank all our amazing volunteers, families, Cranford Community College, Sunshine of Hounslow and London Borough of Hounslow for their incredible support. Watch this space!
