After years of neglect, the Twinning Association (TAP) has adopted the large plant troughs which stand outside Aldi and the row of shops on London Road South.

Initially, two troughs were planted with red, white, and blue flowers for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. However, with contributions from Aldi, Poynton Gardeners Club, and members of the public, this has now been extended with TAP restoring eight of the nine troughs, and Poynton Beavers responsible for the upkeep of the ninth. Gold and purple flowers have been chosen to reflect the theme of the King’s coronation in 2023. Support is now needed to maintain the plants. If you feel you are able to offer help in looking after a trough please contact the Secretary: Glenys Parry-Jones at
