The Group has arranged for hanging baskets in Woodford Green since 1992. For instance in 2016 there were 14 baskets on the High Road and 40 half baskets on the 20 lamp columns in Snakes Lane and The Broadway; the total cost of which was £4548 which included regular watering and maintenance. Redbridge Council had supported the group over the years by reimbursing half the cost but applications for 2017, 2018 were rejected.
The baskets are in place from early June until late September/early October -they significantly enhance the area and are a highly visible example of what the Group does.
We will be pushing Redbridge Council again this year to match fund our efforts for the baskets in 2019.
