Nearly 450 people took part in Redbridge Council’s recent community planting days, making it one of the largest planting events on record for the borough.

“The fun-filled days were held in Wanstead, Barkingside, Seven Kings and Ilford, with participants filling 64 planters with more than 1,000 flowers,” said a Neighbourhoods Team spokesperson.

A total of eight planters were filled outside Wanstead Station.

In a survey after the event, 90% said they had been inspired to get involved in more community events.
