- Path Renewal Underway
The first part of the program of path renewal on the Millennium Green is (almost) complete. The path leading up to the Green from Richmond Road is almost redone – just a small section leading up to the Allotments arch to complete. Many thanks to trustee Duncan Spooner and his team for all their hard work in breaking up the old path surface and laying down 10 tonnes of hoggin. No need for the gym when there is this job to be done.
- Millennium Green Lottery Draw April 7th
The second monthly Millennium Green Lottery draw took place on April 7th. The winning number was 72 and this month’s prize was £103. The proceeds from the Lottery have helped to cover the costs of the renewing the Millennium Green paths. Lottery tickets can be purchased at any time here.
- The Lansdown Open Gardens – Sunday 22nd August
The annual Lansdown Open Gardens return on Sunday 22nd August 2021 2pm-5pm. We plan to have at least 6 gardens in the Lansdown area open. More details to follow.
- Plant Sale with Teas on the Millennium Green – Sunday 4th July
As the current Covid-19 restrictions are continuing the Plant Sale on the Millennium Green scheduled for July 4th has been cancelled.
We are still intending to hold the Lansdown Open Gardens on August 22nd.
- Jeremy Seal Zoom Talk March 7th 2021
The Millennium Green’s first foray into virtual talks was very successful. Local author, travel writer and ‘Turkophile’ Jeremy Seal gave a fascinating talk on his latest book ‘A Coup in Turkey’. He drew very interesting parallels between events in Turkey during the 1950’s and early 1960’s and events in Turkey today.
We hope that later this year we will be able to hold more ‘Tea & Talk’ and ‘Tea & Wine’ events which will be ‘live’.
- The Millennium Green Lottery Launched
The new St. Stephen’s Millennium Green Lottery has been launched. Participating in the Lottery is an additional way to support the Millennium Green.
A draw will be held every month with 50% of ticket sales revenue going towards the monthly prize and 50% going towards the upkeep of the Green. The goal is to have at least 100 monthly tickets sold at £2 per ticket which would give a monthly prize of £100. The more tickets sold the larger the monthly prize.
Lottery participants pay by annual standing order purchasing a minimum of one £2 monthly ticket at an annual cost of £24. More than one monthly ticket may purchased at an annual cost of £48 for two monthly tickets, £72 for three monthly tickets etc.
The first monthly draw will be held on 7th March 2021.
