Description

Please help us sow the seeds of Our Green Mile at our launch event on Sunday 4th March!

What is Our Green Mile?

Our Green Mile will be a Green “corridor” along the London Road linking West Croydon Station and Thornton Heath Pond.

To start with, new and refreshed fower beds and planters will brighten up the road. Your help is needed to water and maintain them - free watering cans provided!

With your help, in time we will be able create larger community gardens along the road and plant more trees, which will help to improve air quality in the area.

Our Green Mile will also include street art and signage to celebrate the heritage of the area.

What's happening at the launch?

Planters will be fixed and planted outside West Croydon Station and on the Pond, this is to mark each end of the Green Mile.

11:30: The grand opening outside West Croydon Station! Flowers will be planted by councillor's and guests, 11:45 (approx): Walk to Thornton Heath Pond with a tour of where other planned works along the mile will be.
12.30: Arrive at TH Pond for second planter installation with fizzy and nibbles!

A very big thank you goes out to local councillors as without their backing and financial support from their community budgets this project would not be possible.

'Our Green Mile' is a fantastic opportunity to be working across wards and connecting West Croydon Station Energy Garden and Broad Green with THCAT at The Pond.

It will be great to see you on the 4th, and hopefully if you live in the area you may want to become involved with our work.
