Brian attended the South and SouthEast in Bloom Awards in Brighton in September and the town of Ryde was awarded Silver Gilt in the Large Towns section.

In the “It’s Your Neighbourhood” section Play Lane Millennium Green achieved  “Level 5 Outstanding” and in addition was awarded the RHS National Certificate of Distinction, one of only two given at that ceremony.   Cert of Distinction RHS0001

At the “Ryde in Bloom” Awards ceremony held this week our Green was given a “Certificate of Excellence” by South and South East in Bloom, with which we were highly delighted, as this recognises all the hard work put in by all the volunteers who help on the Green through the year, not forgetting the Green Gym who achieve so much on their visits to us.Cert of Excellence S & SE in Blo



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.
