Hinchley Wood Residents Association announces a plan to refresh the Memorial Gardens in Hinchley Wood
We’re delighted that Elmbridge Borough Council (EBC) has given us a generous grant from the Community Green Infrastructure Improvement Fund to improve part of the Memorial Gardens in Station Approach, Hinchley Wood. A further grant may be available next year. Our plan is to remove the shrubbery and part of the trees on either side of the pathway in front of the flagpole. Once cleared, additional grass areas will create increased space for public events. New beds with slow growing, low maintenance plants and shrubs will be planted to enhance the area near the flagpole.
EBC’s contractors will help with the heavy lifting but not the planting, for
which we’ll need volunteers – most likely later in the Spring.
If you’re interested in volunteering please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. to register your interest.
Grass verges and overhanging greenery
We’ve recently received two complaints from residents and we ask that all
residents be mindful of them. One relates to vehicles parking on and
damaging grass verges; this is particularly prevalent at this time of the
year when the ground is so wet. The other complaint is about a failure to cut back plants and trees in front gardens which overhang footpaths.
