Firstly, the Green Fingers Committee and Team would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and many thanks to all those who have supported us during the past 12 months: all our Volunteers, local businesses and homeowners including everyone who has donated cakes for our Wednesday volunteers, plants and other garden items and to our bucket of course!
Green Fingers have worked hard again all year throughout Lower C, to maintain the planted areas and verges. It has been a tough job. Our Maintenance Team turning out every Monday morning despite some dreadful weather conditions; cleaning, weeding and spraying every street in rotation and clearing debris after periods of torrential rain. Our Wednesday Volunteers this month have removed the Remembrance Day tribute and replanted the raised bed. They have also put up four sets of donated solar lights, cleared weeds and scrub from the verges, swept up palm seeds from the roads, pruned trees and shrubs, dead-headed, weeded, watered and planted new and donated plants.
We have said good-bye to volunteers Marilyn, Rob and Ken who have returned to the UK for the Winter months. We look forward to seeing them again in the Spring, but we had a surprise visit from a new volunteer; Father Christmas made time in his busy schedule to visit Green Fingers twice and give out sweets to the kind people who stopped at our bucket!
We have a few projects planned for 2022, but if you would like a particular task completed in your area please contact us. To get in touch, please call our Chairman, John, on 634 325 427 for more information or check the chalkboards and our Facebook groups.
