It's a slightly clammy Bank Holiday Sunday, but nonetheless I ventured up to
Greenstead Slopes and Ghost Woods for a look at the rather lovely display of
buttercups (and daises).
It's remarkable what a few days rain can do,
and the undergrowth has really shot up.
The nettles and sheep's parsley are particularly tall right now.
The slopes really are now looking like a proper 'meadow', bringing back all manner
of happy childhood memories. It's very important that children these days have the
same opportunities to enjoy the simple things in life such as making daisy chains,
having family picnics and generally having a wonderful time outdoors.
This can ONLY be achieved by making sure that Greenstead Slopes and Ghost Woods
remain free from the health and safety hazards that litter and dog fouling create.
As you probably know by now, the Keep the Green Clean project was recently given two
Community Awards. These awards were not given to any individual or group of specific
people; they are for EVERYONE in the community who puts their litter in the bins
provided and who pick up after their pets.
(Our posh new litter bin!)
That's a big THANK YOU to him, to her, to them to us......and to YOU!!
Lets now build on that success and all pull together to help to make
Greenstead Slopes and Ghost Woods even better!!
