02 May Ambler installs ‘Green Screens’ to combat playground air pollution
Ambler Primary School and Children’s Centre have installed ‘Green Screens’ made from ivy to combat playground air pollution.
An area on Blackstock Road has been transformed thanks to The Plantman‘s hard work, with our lush panels now making the space a lot greener!

The parent-led group applied to the Fund along with Grow Ambler, our environmentally conscious volunteers, to help transform the playground into a greener, healthier and more attractive space.

The next stage will be to install a pergola with fragrant climbers such as honeysuckle and jasmine planted to grow upwards. There will be opportunities for the extended Ambler community to find out more and help put the grant to work on upcoming Gardening Days.
