WHILE the world has been on pause, Friends of Silloth Green has continued to grow and it wants to thank all those who expressed interest in joining the group.

The group’s Wednesday volunteer sessions started again on July 22 where a planning session for the new season was held, and a meet and greet for volunteers old and new was decided.

The meeting provided a great chance to see some of the upcoming projects.

The sessions will now continue, with suitable precautions in place to keep everyone safe, every Wednesday at 10am at the community garden. The group even provides volunteers with some lunch.

The committee will be meeting again soon so it can continue with its plans for the new water fountain, fairy trail, putting green and the cabin and everything that has been put on hold but not forgotten about.

In the meantime, it has been busy, especially with its new allotments. The committee has extended special thanks to everyone who had donated time and materials to getting the project off the ground.

New members are always welcome, and are invited along to the community garden at 10am every Wednesday so they can continue to keep Silloth Green looking great for everyone to enjoy.

The Green has also seen the installation of nine new picnic benches for use by local residents and visitors to the town.

The benches are made from recycled plastic and will last for many years to come.

Silloth Town Council has extended its thanks to Allerdale Council for agreeing to fund the benches and three new bins for the town.
