Tree Trimming.

Many thanks to the energetic volunteers who turned up on Saturday 17th September and did  such a sterling job on trimming the trees along Greenleach lane.

Further work will need to be done on the  remaining trees at a later stage but as yet we are not sure who by.

Again many thanks to the volunteers.

Emergency Action Required.


The Lime trees on Roe Green need attention.The growth on the lower trunk  is getting excessive and along Greenleach Lane the growth is restricting visibility along the road for cars turning onto Greenleach Lane from Old Clough Lane and Roe Green road so this is a Road Safety factor.Also if the trunks are not trimmed yearly eventualy the growth would  make  a hedge around the green.

The council has been approached to carry out this task but we are informed they do not have the resources to help and we are told we can do the triming ourselfs and they will remove the cuttings.

Therefore The Friends of Roe Green are joining in with Worsley Village Assoc to carry out this work.

So please we need plent of meet

SATURDAY 17th AUGUST AT 10.30A.M. OUTSIDE THE METHODIST CHURCH. Please bring protective gloves,shears or cutters,the branches are quite thick and plastic rakes to gather the debris.

Hope you can help.Many thanks. The Friends of Roe Green.
