New planters

This is one of the planters placed in part of our area this month.  These were paid for out of the neighbourhood fund, a small pot of money that ward councillors decide how to spend.  The money was committed before May and it's great to see the flowers here now.  These were one of the items decided on by myself, Richard Oglethorpe and Peter Millea (who sadly is not a Councillor any more)  I popped into the shop on Garston Old Road the other day and the shopkeeper told me that people were really made up at the difference it made to have flowers there.  (He also promised to water the plants although after this weekend's weather that won't be needed for a while!)
