07 Feb Ambler gets £12,000 Mayor of London grant for greener, healthier playground
The project will see innovative live ivy-covered panels installed to ease pollution in the playground and make the space a lot greener.
The money donated will also enable pergolas to be erected, with climbers such as honeysuckle and jasmine planted beside them. Espaliered fruit trees including apple and cherry will cover bare brick walls, dramatically improving the current urban environment:
The screens, pergolas and plants will be installed during upcoming Gardening Days, where Ambler children and their families get stuck in to transforming and maintaining the school’s playground and forest area.
