Green Space / Gardeners Project

Near the beginning of November 2016 Friends of High Town put out a call to recruit a High Town Gardener, funded by money they had been granted by Near Neighbours. We are happy to announce that this position has been filled by 2 hard workers who are Philippa Collier and Doris Britten who will be working together and with a small sub-committee over the next 3 months to dig and plant some of the parts of High Town that could need attention. In co-operation with the residents group (more specifically the Green Spaces sub-committee) and the local council, their role will be helping to develop a sustainable, long-term engagement from the local community with the green spaces around High Town. Part of their role will be to help organise a handful of day events to get the local community involved in the planting and making High Town flower into the spring. They have began by digging out the planters in Burr Street Car Park next to the NOAH shop. The project is currently funded to run till the end of March 2017 however the hope is for it to continue as future funding is being looked into. Do keep a look out for them in their fluorescent jackets and say hello!
