Our square looks bloomin' lovely!

BASKETS of flowers have brightened up a square in Coventry thanks to the hard work of residents.

Whitefriars Housing Association donated the hanging baskets and a selection of geraniums, lobelias and marigolds for the project.

It is a joint scheme between Whitefriars and the Bell Green Tenants and Residents' Association, which is now in its second year.

About 60 residents got together to prepare the baskets and hang them on balconies on the blocks of flats around Riley Square, Bell Green. Janet Leadbeater, Whitefriars tenant and chairman of the residents' association said: "I like having flowers on the square. It puts you in a better mood."

Kelly Lewis, of Whitefriars Housing, said: "The baskets really brighten up the square."
