Feedback from that Blooming Green Triangle

Today we received a letter from the lovely Helen on behalf of "that Bloomin' Green Triangle" thanking GTDT for the support in helping their project beautify the area.

It has been so nice to work in partnership with this fabulous project and we hope to continue our work together.

Loving Millennium Green

The weather threatened to rain in the morning but by the afternoon the sun made an appearance just as the event got underway. There was a great atmosphere with a wide variety of activities provided by our partners who as always didn't let us down. They provided activities as varied as make your own bird feeder ,create your own mosaic coaster, green your garden by making up a potted plant, relax by getting  either a hand or back massage , pat a pony and relax by getting involved in some mindfulness activities.We also had our visit from Bulky Bob with some great preloved furniture and a large donation of used and new uniforms provided by the community through  Tesco's Community Development worker from the Park Road store . A big thank you to everyone who came along, supported and got involved  in making such a great event on Millennium Green.

Places and Spaces 2018- Blooming Green Triangle

Earlier this year we had a request from the Blooming Green Triangle to partner up and work together to replenish the herbs and plants down the Granby four streets.

The Blooming Green Triangle are a group of local residents that came together to clean and green a number of local streets that where under threat of demolition.

The last couple of weeks we have been supporting this group by providing plants and raised beds that will continue to bring a smile to the local residents and to all of the people who come along to the community monthly market.
