Colour burst into every corner of the borough in September with the Royal Greenwich Residents’ Rainbow.
Eight locations were transformed by technicolored light installations, community arts pieces and ribbons sharing residents’ heartfelt thanks and well wishes for the future of our communities hung on wishing trees.
Businesses and community groups also took part by decorating their shop windows or creating art pieces for display.
The month-long celebrations culminated in a spectacular laser light display on Saturday 26 September. The sky was lit with eight lasers beaming towards each of the wishing trees, starting with a single colour for each beam before dancing through all the colours of the rainbow.
