A PENSIONER has praised the Examiner after getting revamped flower beds on her street.
Denise Hallas, 69, said it was a report in the Examiner which spurred on Kirklees Council to replant the dreary flower beds on Croftlands in Newsome.
Mrs Hallas said: “Since the report in the Examiner about the dull flower beds the council have come and planted lots of colourful pansies.
“It looks lovely and it’s brightened everything up. Everyone is really pleased.”
Previously Mrs Hallas had contacted the Examiner saying her street was always missed off the list when the council came to plant spring bulbs for the following year.
The flats and bungalows on the street, where many elderly people live, were built 30 years ago and the flowers had not been replaced since then.
Mrs Hallas explained: “Just shortly after the nice report in the Examiner the council came out to plant the pansies.
“I couldn’t believe it, I was walking the dog and I came round the corner and I saw they were doing the beds. It was just a week or two after the article.”.
