Work-in Held to Tidy Green

A work-in was held on Saturday November 5th, the main priority being to cut back the grass in the Butterfly Meadow and to remove the resultant debris so that the soil is not enriched by its decomposition.Wild flowers do best in poor soils and we need flowers to encourage insects and bees.

The bridges and walkway were scrubbed to remove any algae and some grass was cleared from one of the drainage ditches ready for the winter.

We have joined the Pond Conservation group at the Water Habitats Trust to get advice and help on the best way to manage the pond, which is becoming quite invaded by grass. Although this provides a good shelter for some forms of wild life, we do not want it to silt up completely.

Pat Tomlinson has volunteered to train as a pond warden and oversee the pond management.

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.
