A helping hand for our parks

Four of the capital's parks are set for a spruce-up, thanks to more than 5-million pounds of lottery funding.

West Hackney Recreation Ground will get more than £690, 000, there's £1.3-million for Eastcote House Gardens in Hillingdon, Langton Gardens in Hornchurch will get £1.9 million, and £1.5 million goes to Alexandra Road Park in Kilburn.
