Polytunnel in West Ham Park opened by City of London Mayoress

The Lady Mayoress of the City of London Claire Anstee has visited West Ham Park to open a new nursery polytunnel worth £45,000.

The facility boasts hot and cold air heaters, paths containing 20 tonnes of gravel and large winding vents.

On a guided tour through the Iris and Rose gardens the Mayoress said:  "It is an amazing privilege for all Londoners, including myself, to have these beautiful gardens to visit and enjoy.

"More green spaces means that we are better educated to make choices for a sustainable city. A food growing project at the Park, for example, will show how vegetables can be grown in even the smallest of spaces. Children will be a part of the process of planting organically and sustainably, and that is very promising."
