The Green Team

Volunteers have been dedicating time and energy to maintaining the green spaces in Whitchurch on Thames. They have been organised either informally or in more formal groups, such as WOTHABS, MOWS or the Village Green Working Group. The idea of the Green Team is to have these events organised into a programme and to involve a wider group of volunteers.

The Green Team is a team of both core and ad hoc volunteers who help look after and maintain the green spaces in the village. Coming together in this way also encourages a sense of community and is a good way of getting to know people.
The Green Team will work closely with WOTHABS. The MOWS group has been merged into the Green Team. A project is underway to rejuvenate the site of the Polish Church Memorial Garden.
