Comment on this story on the

Local environmental campaign group, Air Quality Brentford, is asking local people for help during the hot weather in maintaining plants they have placed in the area.

They would like volunteers to help water and occasionally tidy containers at Netley Road. These have suffered a lot in recent months for a variety of reasons and the group plans to renew some of the plants and give them a boost, however before it does that it wants to find some local people from Haverfield or Brentford Towers to look after them. You don’t need to know anything about plants or flowers but if you, or someone you know, would like to help email

All the group’s community planting projects are looked after by different people all over Brentford, mainly those who live near the containers and, without their help, the plants would struggle to survive, especially in these hot months of the year.

The Netley Road project is number 5 on the Tour de Plants map (see below) and is part of a campaign to help #MakeBrentfordGreener.

Additional help is needed as well at Watermans Co-operative on Brentford High Street, number 7 on the map, opposite the Premier Inn.

Hounslow Highways are also asking residents for help in caring for young trees. It has place watering bags around young saplings and is asking people to provide them with extra water during the current heatwave.

Air Quality Brentford (AQB) is a voluntary group of local Brentford residents helping to improve air quality and can be found on Facebook, Twitter @agreenerlondon.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.
