It’s said that flowers will brighten up any room but Hearts & Stars Awards Best Newcomer Don Jones has a vison that goes one step further – to brighten the whole of Filwood Broadway.
Together with fellow resident Tim Jones (no relation) and with the help of designers at Knowle West Media Centre’s The Factory, the team have designed and built the first planter now sitting outside the play park on Filwood Broadway. The plan is to build more with input from the community to eventually see Filwood in Bloom.
Watch Don share his vision in Part One of the story below. In Part Two, see the making of the planter when we sit down to talk with Tim and Don.
