After all the work from the local community preparing the ground and raking the top soil into place, yesterday the professionals from 'Capital Gardens' came in and started the planting of trees and shrubbery.
Further planting is to come and soon the stone bench will be added, and the path is yet to be laid, but there is already an added bit of cheerfulness about the area. It certainly lifts the mood when approaching Hornsey Park Rd from the southern side.
Life on Hornsey Park Road has been plagued with problems including noise, pollution and crumbling pavements, on top of this there appears to be a lack of strategic vision for the future. Council Leader Peray Ahmet and a few of her fellow councillors came to discuss the issues with our representatives.
Eight of us got out before the rain last Saturday. We cut back a lot of growth at the Lavender Garden ready for winter. Most of what we cleared has now gone down for composting. By John Miles
