VOLUNTEERS WANTED FOR NATIVE HEDGEROW PLANTING AT GREENHAM HOUSE GARDENS
Following other successful community planting and pruning days in the town, Newbury Town Council’s Green Spaces Working Group, in partnership with Newbury in Bloom, are seeking volunteers to help seed a new native hedgerow at Greenham House Gardens (opposite the ‘Burger King roundabout’) on Saturday 27 January meeting at the ‘Fame’ statue at 10am.
Cllr Gary Norman, Leader of the Council said, “We are inviting local residents to help plant the native hedgerow and take part in this community event. This follows our wildflower seeding that took place at Greenham House Gardens in the autumn in 2023. Newbury Town Council are sponsoring this event for the Community to enjoy in the future.”
He continued, “Planting hedgerows such as these will increase the biodiversity and habitat for wildlife in the area, which continues to be part of the Town Council’s Strategy.
If you would like to help plant the hedgerow, we are asking volunteers to come along at 10am. No previous experience is necessary as our grounds maintenance team will be there to advise what to do.
Bring some gloves if you have them, but if not, there’ll be some on the day you can borrow.
