Can you help tidy up Nightingale Green?

image1In early October a group of local residents took over Nightingale Green to help clear the place of weeds and litter, install new plants and cut back old growth. However, the site needs looking after and Marian Temple and our community gardeners cant do it all. We need your help.

Every other month we take part in the litter picks organised by Dan Slipper. Nightingale Green is further from our litter picking patch, but we aim to include on the rounds. Can you help us look after the green? Just keep an eye on it and let us know if anything needs to be done? Then please e-mail info@wansteadsociety.org.uk

Litter and fly tipping

The summer meant there were less people around, less parking and perhaps a little less litter.  There have been concerns about street cleaning schedules, or lack of them.  Fly tipping still piles up around litter bins, and the Snaresbrook Station, Woodbine Place (Wanstead Library), and Herman Hill Recycling sites.    The latter site is ‘cared for’ by the Wanstead CON group and we manage to keep on top of it.  Unless the public reports fly tipping, it doesn’t get reported.  Interesting!  No report, no fly tipping.  So that’s where YOU come in.  Please report any stray black bags, cardboard boxes or general rubbish to www.redbridge.gov.uk/flytipping.

Dan’s LITTER PICKS continue every other month.  The next one if Saturday, 4 November at 9.30 a.m. on George Green.  There will be a break thereafter until March 2018.  Wanstead CON group supports these picks.  Please join in.
