that autumn has now arrived on

Every Little Helps…

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.
