Residents of the Valley Grove Estate are working on plans to create a new community garden on the disused land above, and are asking for your help to secure funding from the Tesco Bags of Help scheme.
Organiser Karin Tucker tells us: “It is a project aimed at improving social involvement by growing our own vegetables, herbs and flowers. We have been successful in our application and now need people to vote for us in order to get either £8,000, £10,000 or £12,000!”. Voting is from 27 February until 6th March at local branches of Tesco, including Woolwich, Greenwich, Plumstead, Eltham, Deptford and Thamesmead.
Karin explains: “When you make a purchase you will be given a token at the till and there will be three projects to vote for. Ours is called ‘Valley Grove’.
