Open Corners is a project which brings the local community together to take responsibility for a piece of public green space to turn it into something special.

That’s exactly what Mireille did with a group of local people who live near The Corner Coffee House on Green Lane. Join Mireille as she shares her experience of changing this patch of green into an exciting space of activity.
