Chalk Road residents eagerly awaiting their Green Makeover Day 13 Sept

This is the ‘before’ photo!

We are delighted to be supporting residents of Chalk Road in their idea for beautifying their shared lawn space.  The residents have seen the long planter in Egham Road and have been meeting and chatting over the past few months to agree on the planter size and design they would like, and the plants too.

Thursday 13th September is Makeover Day!

This project is being funded by our SLAF fund and we are working with Groundwork.

Groundwork has booked a Corporate team of volunteers for the day to build and fill the wooden planter boxes and then put in the chosen plants.  Residents will be around to help and other neighbours and locals are welcome take a look and join in if you would like to. The planter will the width of the green with small planters at either end with dwarf conifer trees.

Zhivka, a resident who has been taking a lead, says ‘ This is helping to make our community nice.  I’ll be there on the day to help with the work and make teas and coffees.’

With thanks to Newham Leisure Centre for letting the Corporate volunteers use its toilet facilities.

Do come by on the day and say hello!
