Kingsland Millennium Green Trust (KMGT)

There is an open meeting of the Trustees of KMGT in the Coronation Hall on Saturday 25th September at about 1030am, following the Annual General Meeting (also open to all) which starts at 1000. Please feel free to come along and let the trustees have your views on our Green.

Copies of the agenda can be obtained by emailing kmgtsecretary@outlook.com or calling the telephone number below.

It should be noted that the maintenance of the Green is totally funded by voluntary contributions received from within the Community. No funding is received from either the Parish Council or Herefordshire Council in respect of ongoing maintenance.

Kingsland Millennium Green News

KINGSLAND MILLENNIUM GREEN INFORMATION.

As many of you will be aware, the Annual General Meeting of the Kingsland Millennium Green Trust was delayed from May until a proposed date in July, due to covid-19. However, at the time of writing it is still not certain when restrictions will be lifted and so the Trustees have decided to delay it again until Saturday 25th September. The Coronation Hall has been booked and formal notice of the AGM and the agenda will be sent out nearer the time.

There are still upkeep costs for the Green, although fundraising has been curtailed. There is a way in which everyone can help however, and that is to join up to the Quarterly Draw. This gives cash prizes and we encourage you, and others who enjoy the benefits of the Green, to join.  The cost is very small. Please contact either Jackie (708281) or Helen (07790273624)

It is clear the Green has been greatly appreciated during the last year and we are proud to have been able to keep it in good order with both professional and voluntary help. Please feel free to make use of the fresh air and exercise options, whilst ensuring that you stay safe and well.

It is a community project supported by the individuals in the community and as such a very valuable asset. It should be noted that the maintenance of the Green is totally funded by voluntary contributions received from within the Community. No funding is received from either the Parish Council or Herefordshire Council in respect of ongoing maintenance. The Trustees are extremely grateful for the continued support for the Green from the residents of Kingsland and the surrounding area.

Thank you for your continued support

Litter Pick report – and photos!

LITTER PICKING 20TH MARCH 2021

Thank you to everyone who turned out on Saturday morning to pick up litter around the Parish.

A record 37 people took part, and in just one morning retrieved the most enormous amount rubbish making our footpaths, verges and ditches safer and more pleasant for all.

Thank you too to Cllr. Sebastian Bowen for providing the kits courtesy of Balfour Beatty.

Lisa Juson. Kingsland Parish Councillor.
