Community gardening and growing community: the Greenway

The Northern Greenway’s rangers are inviting people to come and help give it a summer clear-up next Sunday, 24 July, 1-4pm.

This actually sounds like what the Greenway needs. It looks nice, but people are reluctant to use it because it feels unsafe. And that ultimately is because it runs through a thrown-together development that has little real connection to it. The Greenway doesn’t feel like it ‘belongs’ to anyone or has anybody looking after it. Citizen gardeners won’t make up for that, but trying to involve them is a worthy effort that recognises the problem.

The PCA has been in touch with Preston Park’s councillors about the issue of safety on the Greenway. We and they would welcome your comments.
