Angel’s blooming!

The BBC’s Gardeners World star Joe Swift helped launch the 2017 London in Bloom competition at the Business Design Centre recently and we’re hoping the Angel can rake in some awards this year.

And we need your help. In order for the Angel to be the first winners of the new business improvement district category, we need flowers, plants, green stuff around and outside every business (not causing obstruction, of course).

We’ll be hanging our beautiful flower baskets as usual but we really need this to be a community effort (we get extra points for community involvement). The judges are coming on June 30 so get beautifying your businesses before then….(contact us for ideas)
