Launching the LOVE STRATFORD  project

Stratford Original is looking for businesses who would like to host planters outside their premises.  With spring hopefully just around the corner, we can help you spruce up any grot spots and provide you with up to two planters.  These will be filled with plants that are easy to maintain by you and help to cheer up the town centre. 
If you are interested in finding out more, please email with your business address, a photo of your business entrance (where you would like the planters to go) and contact details.  We will then get back to you to discuss more details.
Stratford Original is seeking a greening specialist to implement the planting work. More information and invitation to tender.
