Henbury Millennium Green Work Day

On Sunday February 11th the Millennium Green Trustees, supported by some valiant local volunteers, were out in the snow doing winter maintenance on our beloved Green. The live willow dome over near the sundial, which the children love play in, grows so vigorously in the summer that it needs a "haircut" in the winter. And here you can see it after the "hairdressers" gave it a good trim!

For some time we've been concerned that the trees in the Church Lane hedge were growing so high that they interfered with the telephone wires so we trimmed them back and they're clear of the wires now. (Yes we know there's one more tree to trim but time ran out on Sunday! We' ll trim it shortly.)

We also cleared the bonfire site of residual ash plus dozens of nails from the pallets that form the core of the fire. These were picked up using a very powerful magnet that once was part on the radar instruments on a world war two Lancaster bomber! Now it's ready for re seeding in a few weeks time.

And finally we levelled off some of the tracks left when the catering van was towed on and off the Green on bonfire night though we didn't quite finish because the snow filled up the holes as we worked! .

So many thanks indeed to all who helped on February 11th. And to everyone who values this wonderful open space in Henbury :: PLEASE LOOK OUT HERE FOR NEWS OF OUR NEXT WORK DAY AND COME ALONG TO HELP US TO KEEP THE GREEN IN GOOD SHAPE.

Kind regards from the Millennium Green Trustees.
