Eleven residents planted nine tree on Saturday 30th November in beautiful sunshine. The trees are good for the environment as they will capture carbon and pollutants. We planted:
- A crab apple and flowering cherry by each of Barnstaple and Plymouth Houses.
- Weeping silver birches in private gardens on Ashburnham Grove and Greenwich South Street.
- Three small bay trees in the front garden of a house on Greenwich South Street.
It was a great way to get to know local people.

Please join us in December to see the 2019 Advent Windows in Greenwich, which is now a beloved Christmas tradition and is in its 13th year. This year’s theme is “Waiting.” Read more about it here.
Every year St Alfege Church, in the heart of Greenwich, London, runs an “Advent Windows” event whereby the town centre is brought alive by 24 unique offerings in the lead up to Christmas.
Shops, homes, schools and pubs use their imagination and artistry to produce the living Advent Calendar. A newly decorated window will be revealed, or “opened”, on each day of Advent (1st to 24th December) in different parts of Greenwich. A variety of media will be used, including paper art, models, light installations and paintings.
Once all 24 Advent Windows have been opened, seeing all of them usually takes around 3 hours on foot. You can view a programme of the window locations, or read about the window openings after each event on the St Alefege blog.
The windows will stay up until Friday, 3 January 2020.
