Clearing Pygmy weed and raising the tree canopy

Work was done on the Green recently to clear the New Zealand Pygmy Weed from the pond. In past years it has been found that when the roots have formed a mat is the best time to remove as much as possible of this tenacious weed.

At the same time work was done on the trees near the entrance arch to raise their canopy so that the shade on the grass area nearby is not so intense, giving other plants a chance to flourish.

We need YOU!

As Play Lane Millennium Green is open for everyone to enjoy, we must have Public Liability Insurance. We also have to carry out regular management of bramble and scrub clearing as well as thinning of the oak trees to encourage optimum growth. Amongst all that, we have to carry out maintenance work on footpaths.

£500 minimum is needed each year to maintain the green to its best standard, for everyone to enjoy.

This is where you come in, follow the link below to find out how you can support the Green.
