High praise for our flower tow­ers

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - ROBIN POTTS Lodge Close, Cow­ley

I WOULD Like to say how much I have en­joyed the flo­ral dis­plays in Hilling­don.

This year’s dis­plays have been most im­pres­sive. I have ad­mired the hang­ing bas­kets of flow­ers on lamp-posts, the flower-boxes on pedes­trian rail­ings at most junc­tions and the ‘flower-tow­ers’ in pedes­tri­anised ar­eas in the bor­ough.

They have been praised by friends who have vis­ited us this sum­mer from Cum­bria, Durham and Devon – beau­ti­ful places in their own right.

If only I could achieve such re­sults in my own gar­den!

These dis­plays are so good that they must be quite ex­pen­sive – but this is money very well spent.

If Hilling­don Coun­cil is ever forced to cut back on ex­pen­di­ture, please don’t cut back on the flow­ers!
