NEWS


We have been selected by the Postcode Lottery to apply for a small grant. We have completed the application and will hear later in the year if we have been selected. 

The judge from the R.H.S. visited us in the first week of September and was very impressed with the work we had done.

We will have to wait until next month to see if we will retain our award from them.


We also had a team of 19 volunteers from BT Research & Insight Group, who put in a great days work raking and painting in the dene.



GRASS CUTTING


Many thanks to North Tyneside Council and their grass cutters who have done an excellent job of cutting all the areas in the lower dene.


This year instead of hiring someone to rake up the cut area, we have hired a cutter and bailer from Whitley Bay Golf Club.


This will save us at least six weeks work clearing along the dene top.


We still have a little cutting left to do on the top, but would like to thank the Golf Club for their support in hiring us their equipment and staff.
