spring watchRoom 212 owner Sarah Thorp was delighted to welcome BBC Springwatch presenter Nick Baker and TV crew to her shop this May. They were filming the installation of planters full of pollinator friendly plants and flowers on Gloucester Road by Avon Wildlife Trust. Sarah had instigated the project by first planting up an old enamel bath outside Room 212 and encouraging other traders to grow plants outside their shops . She then invited Avon Wildlife Trust to oversee the planters and applied for funding from the BCR Neighbourhood Partnership

 

There are now over 30 planters on the pavements if Glos Rd Central which brighten up the lives of bees and shoppers alike.Springwatch will be aired every day from May 30th so look out for the episode on Gloucester Road!
