Maintaining shared areas in the community...

In conjunction with the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers and Merton Council’s “Going for Green” Projects, our volunteers have participated in regular conservation projects for over thirty years, including tree planting, flower bulb planting in local parks and forests, recycling and also an on-going project of clearing and maintaining a section of the River Wandle. Our volunteers have built sensory trails for the blind and visually impaired in local commons and even maintained Wimbledon Police station gardens, when funding cuts prevented police officers from doing so! 

Our adults and youth were also active members of Merton Council’s Graffiti Task Force that went out regularly to remove unsightly graffiti that blighted our local parks and buildings.

In addition to these projects, our volunteers also helped with cleaning projects within the residential areas surrounding the Temple. We helped clear alleyways for local elderly residents and others who struggled with regular maintenance of these shared community areas. And we are still active in many conservation projects in Merton.
