The Maintenance Team has been weeding, clearing and spraying the streets of Camposol ‘C’ North during mild but misty 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 – a forgotten and abandoned area. 

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’ 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! 

We would like to welcome new volunteer Rob to our Wednesday Volunteers, who have been weeding, trimming scrub and trees, planting new plants including an Iris bed, dead-heading plants and clearing the dual carriageway of palm seeds. 

We are always looking for new Volunteers. 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 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. 

The raised bed by the Mercer’s sign was again transformed for Remembrance Day, with silhouettes and beautiful crafted Poppies as our memorial to The Fallen. 

We would finally 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!
