Residents have been sowing the seeds of a better neighbourhood by planting olive trees, writes Sarah O'Reilly.
The Queen's Park Residents' Association spruced up the area outside Kilburn police station in Salisbury Road.
Elaine Henderson, chairwoman of the residents' association said: "The volunteers spent three hours of hard work unloading the pots, positioning them, filling them with a suitable soil mix and planting the six olive trees.
"One of the best parts of the job was the range of positive comments from passers-by, some of whom thought it was something especially for Christmas!
