Help beautify the library garden?

We have received the following from the Library Team

As you may be aware, last October, a team of volunteers which included local school children, redesigned and is now in the process of planting up the Library Garden . We met again this week for a Natter and Potter tidying session. These sessions are open to all residents to come along and make their contribution mix in, chat and enjoy a cup of tea with the other gardening workers.  The Library garden is accessible to library users.

We would like to take this opportunity to see if you or any  group you are associated with would like to join forces to take this slightly further and make-over the front beds outside the library in Ickenham and to see if any of your members could assist in the transformation, would like to create a bedding design, offer plants and could offer time for maintenance.

The Library manager – Barbara Ezra – has been given the provisional go-ahead from the council on condition that residents can offer this information and back up going forward.

There are various schemes that this could head towards including Britain in Bloom but Barbara and I have our eyes set on opening the main Library Garden for the Festival week in 2020 and with a view to having transformed the front bed outside the car park by that time too.

If you think you could help or would like to join a Natter and Potter session please contact the Library directly on (01895) 558271

Thanks in advance

“Cancel HS2” petition – closes April 24

Somehow this petition has slipped through almost unnoticed. It will run only until the 24th April. It needs to get to 10,000 signatures to get to a Government response or, at 100,000, it might get a parliamentary debate.’  So, if you agree with the proposal, please sign it, if you haven’t already done so. Please pass the link on to everyone you can think of. Thanks!

We call on the Government to abandon the HS2 Rail project:
