Rupert from the Brockley Cross Action Group has been in touch to tell us of a planned spring clean-up event down at Brockley Station. He writes:
Spring is getting closer and the worst of winter is behind us. That can only mean one thing: time for our first community gardening event down at Brockley Common!
We need to give all of our community planting beds a thorough clean out, to remove rubbish, cut back & remove last year's dead growth, a bit of weeding and mulching. We also need to do our once a year foray into the wildife area to remove the rubbish and do some pruning, before the birds start nesting.
If we get enough people we might also send a gang across the road to Mantle Road to clean up our other 2 beds over there.
So please put the following date in your diary: SUNDAY 6th MARCH, 1.00 - 5.00pm. Meet outside the Broca Cafe. As ever BXAG will provide all tools and gloves etc (but feel free to bring your own) so just bring warm clothing and stout footwear. BXAG will provide refreshments for all at the Broca at 4.00.
I hope you can make it! Lets kickstart spring and get everything ready for summer!
During the day we will also tell you about the exciting plans that BXAG and Transition Town Brockley have for the north end of the site. We submitted a successful joint bid for funding from the Lewisham Localities Fund so very soon we will start planning some more improvements on the Common!
See you in 2 weeks time! Posters will be going up around the site. Please tell your friends - there's a lot to do!
