Working with the environmental lead on the Action Plan Steering Committee, an informal group of residents regularly carries out
practical work to improve the village environment such as clearing overgrown vegetation from paths and twittens, planting and then
coppicing the new hedges on the Village Green and planting bulbs along the new multi-user path, some of the verges in Wellgreen Lane
and at the C7 junction. The team has also helped to keep the tennis courts clear of leaves and weeds.
Other recent environmental improvements include:
- Planting snowdrops around trees on St Pancras Green.
- Planting new apple trees in The Avenue.
- Hiring a press to make good use of both private and public apple crops.
- Bollards near the school to protect verges.
The Parish Plan Steering Committee cooperated with the Democratic Society on a waste-reduction project which resulted in Kingston being
allocated a share of the funding to spend on local projects to benefit the environment.
