Flower baskets pop up across Harrow’s high streets

In a delightful move aimed at revitalising Harrow’s communities, flower baskets have been installed in Hatch End and Pinner, the first of many to be seen throughout the borough in the coming weeks.

This initiative is the brainchild of Cllr Norman Stevenson, the Cabinet Member for Business, Employment, and Property at the London Borough of Harrow. Expressing his satisfaction with the initiative, Stevenson took to Twitter saying, “Looking good! Hanging baskets now up in Pinner and going up throughout the Borough!⁦”.

The positive impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has undeniably taken its toll on high streets across the nation, and Harrow is no exception. However, the recent installation of these charming flower baskets serves as a much-needed boost to Harrow’s local businesses and communities.

Cllr Matthew Goodwin Freeman, a Conservative Councillor representing Hatch End, praised the initiative. He stated, “My view is it’s a lovely boost to our high streets that are the heart of Harrow’s communities. After the impact of the Covid pandemic, this is just another pick-me-up we are delivering, following the introduction of one-hour free parking both on-street and in Council car parks.”

Residents of Harrow eagerly await the arrival of more flower baskets that will soon be visible on the borough’s streets, if you spot any please feel free to share them via the Harrow Online Group on Facebook.
