If you live in the Palace Gates area, you have probably noticed the raised beds around the Triangle, and the beds around the Albert Road mini-roundabout, because they are full of flowers - not the usual boring evergreen bushes typical of local authority planting! This is because they are maintained by local people, who meet generally at 11am on the first Saturday in the month to weed, plant, prune, mulch ... Do come and join in (and meet some more neighbours while you are about it). Even if you can only spare half an hour, this would be very welcome - no experience necessary, and kids welcome. Details of exactly which beds they will be working on at the next meeting are posted on this website. For more information, reply to this post, or send a personal message to Molly Doran.
