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!
