Vincent's birthday

Drop by on Wednesday afternoon for our annual event to celebrate our namesake's birthday and the anniversary of the launch of our splendid Van Gogh Walk.

We will be sowing lots and lots of seeds for another spectacular summer display.

Come and say goodbye to our gardeners local community enterprise Streetscape and find out about apprenticeships and opportunities in landscape gardening;

Remember the young artist who lived here, loved nature and later painted world famous sunflowers;

Meet our local safer neighbourhood police team and get your bike security marked.

"I am very busy gardening now, I have sown scented peas, poppies and daisies; I have nothing more to do than to wait to see what they will give."
Vincent van Gogh, London, April 1874
