Our first volunteer event of 2021 blossomed into a fantastic day…

Our first volunteer event of 2021 went down as a fantastic success, volunteers joined small groups to help carry out a community clean-up and rewild the crescent. The crescent hosts a fantastic biodiversity, an array of nesting birds, bug life and native shrubs and trees including the critically endangered black poplar Poplus nigra. Our teams removed massive amounts of fly tipped waste, which is an on-going issue that Cody Dock and local business partners have addressed and tackled over the years, this year we wanted to send a big message, that this area is here for wildlife and the community, and we care about it! Volunteers planted an assortment of native species including, blackthorn, crab apple, dog rose, elder, hawthorn, oak, rowan, scots pine, silver birch and wild cherry.

This work could not be possible without the funding from the Green Recovery Challenge Fund (Heritage Lottery, DEFRA, Environment Agency and Natural England), The National Lottery Community Fund, support from local businesses including, Sainsbury’s, Union Roasted Coffee, GBL Studios, London Ambulance Services and many more, and the donation of sapling trees from the Woodland Trust. Not to mention our fantastic volunteers, thank you all and see you soon!
