The Mosaic and planters have arrived!

After months of planning and hard work, the mosaic and planters have been installed. Measuring 3m high by 2m wide, the mosaic depicts an oak tree teeming with life, refecting the colour and vibrancy of our area. An oak was chosen because one features in the Coats of Arms of the former Boroughs of Hornsey and Wood […]
