Greening and Streets

Green Spaces

Our two green spaces community workers are on the case to help ‘Plaistow Southers’ develop ideas and mini projects to green up the locality.

In our early consultations with residents, you most definitely wanted the green spaces in our area to have some attention, and you had a dream for a more beautiful neighbourhood with plants, trees, community growing, local vegetables etc.

Milena Rouse and Ros Southern joined us in August. For what they’ve been up to – see the latest newsletter.

Things on the go:

  • A weekly gardening club on Wednesdays at 11am at the Mix

Coming up..

Do get in touch if you have any ideas for green spaces or streets – big or small.  Take some pics, send your ideas, have a cuppa with us to think things through.

To see some past activities, see below …


Thursday 30th June 2016 was the day for our first green space makeover – click on the image below (and zoom if need be) to read about it:

Community Orchard

We joined LBN and the Green Gym on a freezing day at the end of January for the launch of the Greenway Orchard Project (at the Boundary Lane junction of the Greenway) – taking along the models created by Brampton Manor School students and Library users, created to represent ideas for public art on the Greenway.
Orchard Launch
We are working in partnership with LBN, Thames Water, Newham University Hospital and The Conservation Volunteers, also involving local schools, to develop a community orchard on a strip of Greenway land adjacent to the hospital. Meanwhile, here is info about TCV’s ‘Green Gym’ project on the site which is helping to prepare the ground:
