It’s your place so now that the streets and paths look so much better let’s all join together to pick up litter, do some gardening of our flower beds/pots, maybe some small repairs/painting jobs or whatever you feel you can contribute.

Saturday 6th April we will meet at the Community Centre at 11am and you can get started and give an hour or whatever is suitable for you. We have some gloves and pickers and bags and gardening tools but bring your own if you can. If you are late don’t worry just look around for us and join in!
