A garden in the alley, Fairfield

Fairfield, Liverpool, where local residents have made a wonderful job of "greening" their alley. In some other parts of the ward and indeed the city, many alleys are dirty, neglected, fouled and offer no real benefit to local people. This shining example of what local people can do with support and encouragement is to be applauded, it not only creates a beautiful little oasis for people in terraced houses to enjoy, but it also fosters community spirit, neighbourliness and pride.

I should point out that alleys in Liverpool have locked gates at either end so the only people with access are the residents themselves from their back gates.

Isn't it wonderful!
