Making a Green Difference In Colliers Wood

Get your hands dirty for your environment

Colliers Wood residents are being invited to make a difference to two "open spaces" in Colliers Wood this weekend.

From 10am to 12 midday on Saturday (March 9), a team will be tidying the alley next to 60, Crusoe Road on the border with Figges Marsh.

From 10am to 12 midday on Sunday (March 10), they'll be tidying Pocket Park on the corner of the High Street and Robinson Road.

After tidying the sites, they'll plant a mix of "edible hedgerow trees" - including crab apple, hazel, dog rose, blackthorn and elder - which have been given to the Colliers Wood Residents Association by the Woodland Trust.

If you go along, wear suitable clothing, footwear and work gloves. Organisers say it may be wet, cold and muddy - but it's ideal conditions for planting trees!
