Our Maintenance Team has begun trimming the palms along the dual carriageway and weeding, clearing and sweeping the streets of ‘C’ North in much cooler mornings this month. The Scheme has been in place for several years now, but new owners may not realise what our sector would look like without all the hard work. Overgrown roadsides have gone (look at the roads near the Golf Club to see what would happen if this work was not done), there are no landscaped areas with rubbish blowing everywhere; a forgotten and abandoned area. Nobody wants to live or spend holidays anywhere like that, so if you don’t already belong to our scheme please think about joining. We are totally dependent upon your help: a small donation of 5€ per house each month means the whole of Camposol 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 and maintenance, 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!
Our Wednesday volunteers have been watering, weeding, trimming palms, sweeping away their seeds and clearing scrub. The raised bed near the Mercer’s sign was again transformed for Remembrance Day, with silhouettes and beautifully crafted poppies as our memorial to The Fallen.
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 as there are always lighter tasks available and you will be improving your community!
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!
