THE PUBLICAN of an East End boozer is encouraging people to get gardening and brighten up Tower Hamlets.
Green-fingered Pat Burns who is the landlord of the George in Glengall Grove on the Isle of Dogs scooped the top prize in last year's Tower Hamlets in Bloom award in the pubs, small businesses and restaurants category last year.
He said: "It's lovely to have an outside space, and the better it looks the more popular it is. Putting hanging baskets outside can have a knock-on effect for a whole area - all of a sudden creating a bright and beautiful street."
Anyone who wants to give Pat a run for his money is urged to cheer up their patch of Tower Hamlets.
