Last of the Summer Sunshine?

It’s late September and there’s plenty of evidence

that autumn has now arrived on

Greenstead Slopes and in Ghost Woods…

A Wildlife Haven…

Despite it being a cloudy and humid day
I took a walk around Greenstead Slopes
to see what flora and fauna I could find.

As you can see, the tall grasses
are a haven for wildlife
no matter what the weather.

Volunteers Needed…

 

Dear KTGC Supporters,

Hopefully you can see that our volunteers are doing a great job keeping the greens clear of litter and dog fouling and also looking after Ghost Wood.

However, we’re just looking for a couple of volunteers who live near the Harwich Road entrance to the field by the children’s play area, who would be happy to keep Porters Brook clear of litter to enable the water to flow freely.

This particular section of the brook is just down the steps from the bus stop on the left. Our volunteers are happy to blitz the area and get on top of the situation but the project just needs help from one or two people who pass by this spot on a regular daily/weekly basis.

If you can help please email keepthegreenclean@gmail.com and someone will get back to you.

We look forward to hearing from you!

A very big

THANK YOU

to Jo Clarke

Community Champion at

Tesco Hythe

for the £15 Gift Card

donated to

Keep The Green Clean.

Due to a 2 for £5 offer

we were able to buy

6 boxes of

Meadow Garden Seed Mix.

These will be scattered

at the edges of the slopes

and will be a lovely addition

to our daffodils.

EVERY LITTLE HELPS!

Tree Planting…

A very big
THANK YOU
to everyone who came along
to help plant the new saplings
which were given to us by
The Woodland Trust.

Despite the grey weather,
and the fact it was Easter weekend,
it was a great turn-out.
So good to see so many
local people getting involved.

Another big THANK YOU
to the anonymous donor
who paid for the tree protectors
and canes.

This little copse is adjacent
to Ghost Wood and will
enhance the local area
by adding some colour,
and it will encourage
birds and wildlife.

It will also provide
a shady area for families
to enjoy picnics,
while still allowing
plenty of green space
for children to run around on.

The project has the backing of
Colchester Borough Council
and local Counsellors.
