Trees to be checked by council

As you may be aware, a tree toppled over on the eastern side of the estate, causing considerable damage to one of the houses. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt, but it has some neighbours raising concerns about other trees on the estate.

As autumn is the best time to check for fungal fruiting bodies and take any remedial action if necessary, Greenwich Council Tree Officer Sam Bateson will be visiting the estate to survey all the trees some time in the next few months.

2019 VPE summer party

Thanks to everyone that made it along to our estate’s summer party. There was a big turnout of kids with fun games, dancing and even a fire engine.

It’s always great to catch up with our neighbours and meet new faces – we look forward to next year’s celebration!

Bin it good!

How’s your waste disposal knowledge? VPERA committee member Virginia made the Bin Challenge game — play with the kids or try it yourself.

Simply dispose of the waste in the right bin in the quickest possible time.

Keep our estate clean

We need your help to reduce litter around the estate and ensure our recycling is effective.

DON’T CONTAMINATE YOUR RECYCLING

If you’re unsure whether an item can be recycled, take it to the waste bin.

DON’T LEAVE BINS OVERFLOWING

If a bin is full, take your items to another one on the estate.

DON’T LEAVE BULKY ITEMS LYING AROUND

Take bulky waste to the designated areas: outside the caretaker’s office and inside the bin store on the south-east corner of the estate.
