A weary, worn out piece of land in Beckton has been transformed by residents into a sun-dappled meadow.
Every week, local people have been returning to work on this green patch of land in Hallywell Crescent as part of a project called Bloomin Hallywell to reclaim a community space in the borough for everyone to enjoy.
There have been a number of free activities throughout the month including street games, wild life studies, photography, arts and crafts, and herbs for health workshops.
Youngster have focused their energies on building a bug hotel, bird boxes, and artifacts from natural materials.
Generations came together every Friday afternoon for a session of African drumming and a sing song.

Nature-lovers are invited to a final celebratory street party and barbecue along with an exhibition of photographs, arts and crafts, and a musical performance on Friday August 10 from 3pm to 6pm.
