Our Maintenance Team has been weeding, clearing and spraying the streets of ‘C’ North during very chilly mornings this month. The scheme has been in place a few years now and new owners may not realise what our sector would look like without it:
- Huge weeds on the roadsides have gone (look at the roads near the Golf Club to see what would happen if this work was not done).
- Deep pot holes.
- No landscaped areas and rubbish blowing everywhere; an area forgotten and abandoned.
Nobody wants to live or spend holidays in a place like that, so if you don’t already belong to our scheme please think about joining! We are totally dependent on your help: a small donation of 5€ per house each month means the whole of ‘C’ Sector North is swept, cleaned and sprayed.
One day, Green Finger’s Maintenance Scheme will no longer be needed as the Ayuntamiento will take over street cleaning, but until then we ask you to consider joining us, even if your house is only used as a holiday home – unfortunately the weeds don’t have holidays and your street still needs clearing all year round!
The Volunteers this month have been weeding, pruning, watering and building twelve new flowerbeds, as plants had to be moved from the site of the new Aqualia pumping station. The raised bed by the Mercer’s sign was again transformed with a large cross, silhouettes and poppies as our memorial to The Fallen.
We are always looking for new Volunteers as our numbers always decrease during the cooler months when people leave after their holidays. If you would like to join us for a couple of hours, come along to the Welcome Wall at 9am on a Wednesday. Breakfast butties and drinks are free – don’t worry if you can’t do heavy work, there are always lighter tasks available and you’ll be improving your whole community!
A polite request concerning the green waste skips.
Please could we appeal to everyone not to leave their green waste in plastic bags, but empty them out and take the bags home? Thanks!
Finally we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! A huge thank you to those who take time to care for any plants near their homes, those who have offered us refreshments and those who contribute to our buckets!
