A suuny day on Van Gogh Walk

Streetscape our wonderful garden maintenance team chose a great day to prune our beautiful olive trees. They have been maintaining our gardens for the last 3 years but unfortunately our funding has run out and despite our best efforts we have been unable to find a new source of funding.

We are sure everyone in the neighbourhood would like to express thanks and appreciation to Streetscape and their wonderful apprentices for all their great work on Van Gogh Walk.
