St Peter’s Action with our Community in the Environment
GreenSpace is St Peter’s initiative for developing community cohesion within Cradley through transforming the churchyard into an area which is attractive for people to visit, and which provides good biodiversity to support our natural wildlife.
Our objectives for 2012/13 are:
GreenSpace in action, clearing the Memorial Orchard Meadow
To maintain the paths which have been laid
To establish a partnership with the Young Offenders in order to:
Clear areas B and F
Clear the two areas of fly-tipping adjacent to the gates on Homer Hill Road
Clear the sloping ground on the north side of the churchyard with a view to planting a community orchard
To identify sources of funding to support our work
To identify and establish partnerships with other community groups eg scouts, Royal British Legion, local schools.
To clear and paint the railings around tombs where they exist.
GreenSpace meets on the first Saturday of the month from 10am to 3pm with lunch included. Come for an hour come for two.
