Village Green Clear Up

Monxton Parish Council announces a Village Green clean up project to remove the green waste and dead trees at the corner of the village green. The intention is to open up the area to provide additional river side space and the stop the green waste being dumped.

The dates for the clean up which may take either a lot of volunteers or several weekends are as follows:
Saturday: 26th October 9.30 -13.00
Sunday: 27th October 9.30 -13.00
Saturday: 2nd November 9.30 -13.00
Sunday: 3rd November 9.30 -13.00
Saturday 10th November 09.30-13.00

Please indicate your preference and we will then finalise the dates and announce them. We do not anticipate it taking all five dates (hopefully).

We will need teams of no more than 8 people with garden tools including forks, shovels, strimmers, hedge trimmers, loppers and one chain saw in the first group. In addition we will need green bags to take away the green waste and someone with a pickup or towed trailer please.

    Nobody ever to my knowledge since my arrival in 1977 has ever dumped garden waste in the corner of the village green. I have never seen anyone do so. The rubbish that is there is the cumulative result of the work done by the man who cuts the grass and collects the leaves on the green. What alternative arrangements have been made for next year’s grass cuttings? During flower festivals there used to be maypole dancing on the green – that is now quite impossible because of the uncontrolled growth of trees.
