Grant from Grassroots to Improve Footpaths

We were delighted to hear in December that we have been awarded a grant from Grassroots so that we can improve the footpaths throughout the Green, many of which become muddy and slippery in wet weather. The plan is to lay geotextile in strips about a metre wide and then to put down a top surface of limestone chippings. This will weather and become colonised by plants producing a firm but non-obtrusive pathway.

It is hoped to start this work in the early summer, weather permitting.

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.
