Helping to make Greenwich greener

Following a request by the Leader of Greenwich Council, Chris Roberts, for local groups to do their bit in helping to beautify the parks and green spaces in the borough, a number of volunteers from the Westcombe Society have been working on the flower and shrub beds near Westcombe Park Station.

They have cleared the ground, and planted Narcissus and Crocus bulbs supplied by the Council.

Leader of the group, Barbara Henley said: "We welcome the support given by Greenwich Council to encourage local groups like the Westcombe Society to help to improve the environment. The Council are being very co-operative in helping local groups to combat graffiti - but planting bulbs is a much more creative endeavour!"
