Project Description

17th February

Love Your Community

The sign currently on display in Birdhill Village Green reminds us all of the role of community in our lives and invites us to be part of its well-being and development:  Participate in local activities; Look out for your neighbours; Care for the local environment; Be a volunteer in local organisations. We are defined by our community but we can play a part in defining and developing the community in which we live.

Forthcoming tasks
  • Preparing the polytunnel for planting
  • Potting plugs for summer bedding
  • Sowing shrubs
  • Spring clean on all local roads
  • Organising a get-together for Neighbours and Newcomers.

New Season

With the arrival of spring, we begin looking forward to a new season of Tidy Towns activities. Plans will soon be formulated, areas in need of attention will be identified, work schedules will be organised, social events will be planned.  New ideas, new activities and new personnel are needed to drive Birdhill Tidy Towns forward. Why not get involved in the enhancement of your area and the development of your community.

Notice Nature

Reports have been submitted of the first sightings of snowdrops and crocuses in Birdhill on 5th January and of the first daffodils on 7th January.  Keep a look out for spring awakenings and arrivals in your area and submit details to birdhilltidyvillage@gmail.com
