Green Synergy Covid 19 Update August 2020. Phased Return to Hillside.

We have been gradually phasing our return to delivering sessions on Hillside Community Garden since June. We are pleased to say that this is going really well and that our Better Together, Get into Gardening and Eco WRAP projects are all running again. We are currently still unable to run practical sessions for our ‘Tower Power’ Children’s Project but are continuing to engage with these families virtually.

We are running a Covid Safe site, adhering to social distances and other relevant government guidelines. For further details, please see our Covid 19 risk assessment and check list on our website.

For further general information please see our Facebook Page and Website.  If you would like to join one of our projects or make a referral, please either email info@greensynergy.org.uk or call Gill on 07919220583 or Trudy on 07881308285. Please note our office still remains closed.
