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.

Buttercups and Daisies…

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.

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!!
