A flower bed on the path that connects Cambridge Park to Draycot Road, alongside George Green, has been given a new lease of life by the Wanstead Community Gardeners.
“One of our members got so fed up with walking past this litter-strewn, weedy patch that she was galvanised into action. Litter and weeds out, donated plants in. A lot of hard work later, and this patch is coming to life. Kindred, the nearby nursery, is happy to let us use their water until the plants get established,” said Marian Temple.
