Jubilee Gardens Improvement – 14th September 21
We have made some progress with Southway, the owners of the Jubilee Gardens, regarding a proposal for an initial weeding and improving session on the 14th September 2021, and a replanting session the following week. Southway have secured internal Community funding for some replanting, which is great news, including some canopy and pruning tree work.
There is also some thinning of the Hebes to be done which are taking over their current bed area close to the memorial mosaic, along with approval to plant a memorial Acer to the memory of the late DCS President, Jim Leeming. Southway are also wishing to discuss ideas for the forthcoming Queens Diamond Jubilee including an additional plaque. All of which is a very positive engagement.
The Ranger from Southway will be bringing along a flatbed truck to remove green waste and debris etc as required. Own tools would be helpful.
