We’d like to say a huge thank you to the Mayor of London for our Grow Back Greener award. This will enable further development of Besson Street Community Garden with new plants and trees, repairs to our pond and improved eco-credentials with the installation of new water butts, green roof and green wall. We will also be able to run many more community gardening sessions over the coming year. Please come along to our community gardening sessions if you would like to get involved – now running 4 days per week: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Everyone is welcome.
If you are looking for a reason to try and get fit and healthy again after months of lockdown, NXG Trust has 5 community spaces for the Big Half up for grabs, for only £10 each. The 13.1 mile run will take place on Sunday 25 April, starting at Tower Bridge and ending in Greenwich Park. To be awarded one of our places, we will just ask that you set up an fundraising page to make a donation to the New Cross Gate Trust. Please email Jenny.firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in taking part.
