Good news: The hundreds of daffodils planted by the St Swithun’s Scouts last autumn are flowering all around Hither Green.
The planters at Hither Green station are filled with bright and cheery daffodils and winter pansies and violas. The scouts can be justly proud!
Bad news: The Hither Green Lane plant thief is back at work. Another lavender bit the dust last week.
There have been plant thefts and petty vandalism in Forest Hill, but Hither Green has suffered from a sustained campaign of plant thefts on Hither Green Lane since the original planting last April.
Stealing from your neighbours and de-nuding the community you live in, is low and nonsensical.
