Green Carwood

Over the last few months Green City Action's ‘Deliver it Green’ project has been working to improve the green environment around the Carwood estate. The team have helped supply hanging baskets, replaced the rotten benches in Carwood Green and the ‘Bull Ring’ and with local children and volunteers have prepared ground and planted 1000 crocus and 500 daffodil bulbs.

We have also been helping Ellesmere Youth Project and the children to create mosaics to set into the paving on the green.

In the next couple of months we will continue to work with the Tenants’ and Residents’ Association to:

  • Finish tidying the shrub beds to eradicate weeds and self set tree saplings.

  • Plant new shrubs and perennial flowers to improve the beds.

  • Install and plant up two raised beds on Carwood Green.

  • Grass over old shrub bed at the top of Carwood Road and plant four new trees.

  • Plant two new trees in tree pockets on Carwood Green and the ‘Bull Ring’.
