Colour will be bursting into every corner of the borough this September with the Royal Greenwich Residents’ Rainbow.
Eight locations will be transformed by technicolored light installations, community arts pieces and ribbons sharing residents’ thanks and wishes hung on wishing trees.
Each area will be lit and decorated in ribbons from one single colour to begin with, but throughout September, the colours and lights will be exchanged between areas, making each part of the borough a rainbow of colour with messages of gratitude from across communities.
Residents have been sending in messages of thanks and wishes for the future to be part of our gratitude and goodwill exchange. The deadline for sending in messages has now passed.
These messages will be printed onto one of the colourful ribbons and displayed in the wishing trees from Monday 7 September.
