The HGCA will be working with our local partners the Friends and Users of Staplehurst Road and new partners like Kew Gardens and Streetscape to make positive changes to Hither Green’s environment in 2015.

  • Late January will see the over- grown and over- hanging trees around the Station tidied up, opening up the area and improving sight lines.
  • Local residents will continue working on the wildflower meadow on Fernbrook Road and the award- winning Springbank Road community garden.
  • And we shall continue to fund and support our Hither Green’s Scouts to maintain our town planters.

PLEASE NOTE: Families are very welcome to help in the Springbank Community Garden. However, Network Rail rules mean the embankment sessions are over 18s only. All equipment is provided including boots!
