WARA (Wolverton Avenue Residents Association) is a local community group in Kingston-upon-Thames. The aim of this group is to keep their local area neat, tidy and colourful, while getting residents and local kids to join in and help.
Recently Kingston council encouraged WARA to adopt the seven large planters in the busy avenue. Although no funding was available WARA have managed to construct and refurbish the planters but bulbs were needed to give early colourful impact. So, after getting in contact with the group, we were thrilled to get involved and provide a donation.
To continue to highlight the importance of maintaining green spaces around the UK, J. Parker’s sent WARA 1000 Daffodils and 500 Tulips to plant in their local community green spaces.
The group were kind enough to share some of the photos of their planting days with us. We love seeing local groups taking nature into their own hands in local spaces.
