Total waste of money and a great shame in my view. In past years some sponsors have made it really novel or lovely. Margaret B 10 months, 3 weeks ago We are told that it was decided to scrap the hanging baskets because of the hose pipe ban. Estelle S 10 months, 3 weeks ago I agree as it was so much nicer with the hanging baskets and Southfields station is also not as good as it has been in the past. annette d 10 months, 3 weeks ago I understood in the past the baskets were funded by the tennis now it seems they cant stretch to that! Estelle S 10 months, 3 weeks ago Wimbledon Tennis is a very wealthy organisation. A few hanging baskets would hardly dent their budget. Spencer C 10 months, 2 weeks ago Sorry I would like to point out that the All England did not put up hanging baskets in Southfields because of the hose pipe ban(Margaret is correct). They do fund these nott by Wandsworth or Merton. They have also cut down this year on their number of plants at the club due to the ban.They should be back next year as long as there isn't a hose pipe ban! Also the sponsor at the station should change so watch out for next year!!
