Tower Hamlets Parks and Open Spaces Consultation Event - Wednesday 23rd November (Ecology Pavilion)

Poor gardening - shrubs pruned days before the St John's Wort would have bloomed

Tower Hamlets Council is developing a five-year plan for its parks and open spaces and it is crucial that the plan takes on board the views of the community. With that in mind, this Wednesday sees a couple of consultation events at the Ecology Pavilion in Mile End Park.

The first session runs from 14.30 to 17.00, and for those unable to make that one, there is an evening session from 17.30-20.00. Both sessions will begin with a short presentation from the Council about our parks and open spaces and then users will have an opportunity to express their views on how they would like to see the borough's open spaces develop (for want of a better word).

One thing I'd like to see is for the guys on the ground to know more about plants. Late summer I was in Tredegar Square and noticed the St John's Wort above was just about to flower. Two days later I returned hoping to see it in all its glory, but was disappointed to see it had had all the buds chopped off.

What would you like to see? Pop along and have your say if you can spare the time - the Ecology Pavilion is only 'round the corner just passed the Britannia Fish Bar in Grove Road.
