We've all been enjoying the beautiful tree gardens as they
thrive in the recent sunshine. New residents Rahmia and Oliver
said that experiencing the Spring and Summer flowers of the tree
gardens has been a treat. "They are beautiful - well done to
everyone who has contributed."
The tree garden stalwarts - including Julie, Tess, Tony, Janet
and Aida - are always on the look-out for residents who might
take on watering of a particular bed, particularly as Summer is
now here. If you'd like to help, please do send an email to
It's a great way to get involved in the community and to meet
others from the street.
The street has entered Islington
in Bloom for the last 10 years and we have been fortunate to
often win something
are last year's winners). This prize money and vouchers fund
the next year's planting. Seven beds have been entered this
year, including the lovely ones pictured above, entries for the
category of "Best Tree Pit" this year. The digitalis and
lavender bed is outside number 5-3 Ockendon Road. The other one
is outside 2-4 Ockendon Road. The judges were walking our
street in June. Good luck to everyone and happy watering!
