Welcome to Keep The Green Clean…

These photos show how the green looked in the summer of 2012. We hope that with ongoing support from volunteers we can maintain this level of tidiness so that everyone can enjoy it…

Many thanks to Colchester Borough Council and Street Warden Sam Lancaster for their ongoing support and help with  putting all of the requests/suggestions into action, and for arranging rubbish collections etc. Much appreciated!
