We are delighted to announce our new ‘Welcome to Heston West’ flowerbed has been installed at Harlech Gardens on Cranford Lane. The fantastic new addition is just a stone's throw away from the Brabazon Parade of shops. The flowerbed is ideally placed to attract the attention of local drivers, shoppers, commuters and school children walking either to Berkeley Academy or Cranford Community College. The flowerbed was officially unveiled by our chair Alan Fraser on Tuesday 14th May alongside Lewis Byrnes at Lampton 360 Maintenance and members of our community. The reaction from our local residents has been brilliant, many commenting how the flowerbed made them feel proud and happy to be part of our local community.
This is the first of many new green space projects that will be happening over the next few months in our Big Local area. We will be installing 7 raised beds (5 vegetables beds and 2 flowerbeds) on the Redwood Estate, 4 new flowerbeds outside Redwood Estate, opposite Cranford Community College and a few alongside the Brabazon Community Centre. In addition we will be developing the Harlech Gardens Allotment to help breathe new life to the site.
Our Chair Alan Fraser said: "I am so inspired by this project. It has created a lot of interest and is a start on our drive to improve our local environment. It is one of several project that Heston West Big Local are carrying out in the local area together with Lampton 360. Keep watching this space and if you have any ideas on improvements you would like to see let us know."
We would like to thank Lewis, Fabio and their board of directors at Lampton 360 Maintenance for their amazing support in funding and installing the flowerbed.
