Has anyone seen the new Co-operative bank advert, with a young bearded chap (I know that's quite a wide field these days) who, apparently, lives in Peronnet House and likes to plant flowers on the Bricklayers Arms road junction because 'it's pretty grim outside'? The advert shows the Elephant northern roundabout post-reconfiguration, so it's obviously been filmed quite recently.
Are the flowers still there? Looks like they were working on the tree beds at the junction with Darwin Street next to the Westbound bus stop southern side of Bricklayers Arms.
I saw them being planted and the camera crew. I just assumed the flower bed was being made to look nice for the filming rather than the other way round! I wish I had stopped to ask what was going on. A couple of months later the flowers are still looking lovely and make such a difference.
Richard is ever so active in the area (and on this forum), he has done wonders in Elliotts parks, near the trees along St Georges Road, outside Morley college and in London road (I always stop and look at the flowers, whatever the season there is always something blossoming in the flowerbeds by the bus stop).
