Long Street Planter
The Long Street planter is sited on the corner of Long Street and New Road. It was built to protect the pavement and houses from the traffic at what is a very busy cross-roads.
For many years, the owner of one of the houses planted and maintained the planter but after she passed away it fell into neglect. Eventually, a group of neighbours clubbed together to revive it and it is now cared for throughout the seasons by those volunteers.
This little planter provides just one more example of how a little effort by a few people can make a very big difference. Keep it going, folks!
