January 22nd 2016 Tree stumps cleared

The self seeded oak trees which were growing near the five barred gate had developed into a small wood and as we want to keep that as an open area most of them were cut down during 2014.

However by last autumn it was clear that many of them were shooting again and so it was decided to dig them out. This was obviously a job that needed machinery and so we approached Gavin of  “GM fencing” who sent his team with a small digger.

They have done an amazing job removing the stumps and levelling the ground again.They even managed to save the little sapling that we planted as part of our biodiversity programme!

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.
