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!
It’s a slightly clammy Bank Holiday Sunday, but nonetheless I ventured up to
Greenstead Slopes and Ghost Woods for a look at the rather lovely display of
buttercups (and daises).
It’s remarkable what a few days rain can do,
and the undergrowth has really shot up.
The nettles and sheep’s parsley are particularly tall right now.
The slopes really are now looking like a proper ‘meadow’,
bringing back all manner of happy childhood memories.
It’s very important that children these days have the
same opportunities to enjoy the simple things in life
such as making daisy chains, having family picnics
and generally having a wonderful time outdoors.
This can ONLY be achieved by making sure that
Greenstead Slopes and Ghost Woods
remain free from the health and safety hazards
that litter and dog fouling create.
As you probably know by now, the Keep the Green Clean project
was recently given two Community Awards.
These awards were not given to any individual or group of specific people;
they are for EVERYONE in the community who puts their litter in the bins provided and who pick up after their pets.
(Our posh new litter bin!)
That’s a big THANK YOU to him, to her, to them to us……and to YOU!!
Lets now build on that success and all pull together to help to make
Greenstead Slopes and Ghost Woods even better!!
It’s that time of year again, where the blossom is out on the slopes
and ghost wood is looking rather splendid with it’s carpet of blue.
If you can, I’d strongly suggest you take a walk around there asap
– it really is a lovely sight.
The slopes have a smattering of buttercups, however,
the display of yellow doesn’t quite match the performance of previous years.
Maybe next year…?
Greenstead Slopes are looking stunning with all the buttercups and Ghost Wood is a mass of sheep’s parsley and bluebells. There’s constant birdsong wherever you go in the wood and thanks to the constant efforts of a handful of volunteers the litter and dog poop situation is slowly getting under control.
Of course, if it wasn’t for the small minority of irresponsible pet owners then the task would be a lot easier to deal with ….and less disgusting…
The Green is looking distinctly yellow right now…
What a magnificent sight!
