We did: Accent is investing heavily in the external environment in the Moss Side area and is looking for ideas for improving and renovating old drying areas. Giving residents the opporunity to take these over and transform them in this way is just one idea to improve the estates and give residents pride in their home and community. Over the years resident Steve has taken pride in maintaining the area around his flat for the benefit of the estate and its residents. Steve was given permission to use an unused drying area and he has transformed this area into a community garden. The theme of the mural is 'building bridges not walls' and it has given life to what could otherwise be a neglected area.
