It would be nice to go along to nearby ones, but would be a gracious visitor and bring some food along.

Not sure where to post this msg, but here is as good a place as any, given the community spirited theme of the thread.

I got the train from Brockley to Croydon today and I just want to say congratulations to the Brockley volunteers who planted up the beds outside the station last year - coulgate side. Your efforts have paid off and it looks really good despite the lack of rain in recent months.

Now can anyone tell me what's happening at honor oak station? they've cleared the bank behind the platform heading into London. ARe they going to plant it up?

I agree, the shrubs and flowers look lovely and the view as far away as the sandwich bar (Doorstep) is transformed.

On the subject of gardens - if you are unable financially or physically to manage a garden - which is overgrown and completely unmanageable - is there anyone to help? Remember reading about people who want to garden and don't have gardens. This is for some local people who have problems with mobility etc.

@G there is the Landshare scheme, or Fran from Transition Brockley has been putting wannabe gardeners in touch with those with a garden they aren't able to maintain.

I agree that the flowerbeds by Brockley Station look great - thanks initely due to Rupert from BXAG who was the driving force behind it all.

I set out for my local one only to be rained on.

I'm afraid I slunk back home.

No backbone....

Yeah,a real pity about the weather.Did any go ahead ?

Yes, a couple near near us happened and looked fun though I must admit I slunk off in the rain too.

The Kitto Road one was well attended and others happened - the Telegraph Hill Councillors were doing a round of all in their Ward. (I also was introduced to the BBC Raspberry Milk Chocolate Cheesecake - mmmmm!) A real shame, though, about the weather. Everywhere desperate for the rain, but it could have held off for another four hours...
