The slopes are looking wonderful
with all of the
buttercups and daisies
at the moment.
The cherry trees are also in bloom.
A big THANK YOU
to the lovely family
who planted the tulips!
Our new signs…
Please help us to
KEEP THE GREEN CLEAN!
The Keep The Green Clean team is proud to announce
that during a ceremony at The Colchester Town Hall
on Wednesday 23rd September 2015
during the Colchester in Bloom AGM,
we were awarded the Trinity House Trophy
in the Best Community Project 2015 category
by Colchester in Bloom.
We would like to thank the Colchester in Bloom judges
for acknowledging all of the hard work carried out
by our small team of local volunteers.
Some of us might not have much
to leave to our children,
or our grandchildren,
so why not help us to
LEAVE A LEGACY
The gift of
a wonderful space full of flowers
for future generations to enjoy…

Keep The Green Clean and Ghost Wood / Greenstead Slopes have both been given prestigious RHS Neighbourhood Awards from Colchester in Bloom!
Two of the ‘Greenstead Wombles’, along with myself, went along to the Colchester in Bloom AGM this evening to receive both of the fabulous framed certificates from the Deputy Mayor of Colchester, Cllr Theresa Higgins.
We’d like to personally thank Pam Schomberg, chairman Colchester in Bloom and Cllr Dave Harris for making us feel so welcome. We’d also like to thank the Colchester in Bloom committee for the tremendous spread of tea and cakes!
We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank
Colchester Street Warden Sam Lancaster
for for arranging the collection of many large dumped items
and over 400 black sacks of rubbish collected by the ‘Wombles’
over the last 4 years!
