All change on Van Gogh Walk

 Goodbye to our gorgeous sunflowers...
 and hello to Vincent van Gogh tulips and Dutch Master daffodils
 James from Streetscape with some of our new plants. Lots more virginia creepers to create our vertical wall of colour. All the half circle gardens throughout the Streets Ahead/Grass Routes neighbourhood now contain our signature plant - grass.

The amazing Deutsche bank volunteers were unstoppable
We love Lauren who comes to help at every event and that's Matesh team leader from Deutsche Bank.
