Sudbury Tree Walk on Saturday 26th August 2017.
Are you free in the morning on Saturday, 26th August? STRA members will be meeting up and walking around Sudbury to consider areas that would benefit from the planting of new trees, shrubs, planters or boxes. We’d love to have your input and suggestions.
Not only is this a great opportunity to help the environment and enhance Sudbury’s natural beauty; it’s also a chance to meet your neighbours and fellow STRA members. We’re striving towards a cleaner, greener, safer Sudbury, but it’s just as important that we strengthen our community spirit.
Come and join us at Butler’s Green for 9am on Saturday to get involved in the tree walk and decide where Brent’s new trees etc. should go. We look forward to seeing you there!
GREENING OF SUDBURY
The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has announced £1 million in ‘Green Grants’ to improve air quality.
Trees and plants play an essential part in reducing London’s dangerously polluted air, as well as being a vital part of our landscape.
Martin Page, Principal Landscape Architect Brent Council, invited STRA to participate in this very exciting ‘Greening’ Project. The grant will be match-funded by Brent Council. Community grants of between £5,000 and £50,000 are available. Martin will be submitting the application to City Hall before 29 September 2017.
On Saturday, 26 August 2017, STRA members met on Butlers Green – under the now-famous Red Tent – and pinpointed locations that the community feels are in need of ‘greening’.
Enthusiastic STRA members identified several sites that could benefit from the scheme. Listed below are a few of the highlights:
· Planters adjacent to the railway bridge each side of Harrow Road
· Butlers Green roundabout
· Station Approach
· Green patch outside Keelers Korner garage
· The kerb from Maybank to the end of Harrow Road (in the direction of Greenford)
· Disused tennis court between Compton Avenue and Vale Farm
· Butlers Green area around the abandoned toilets
· Sudbury and Harrow Road station entrance
We will keep you informed of further developments.
