Oak tree on The Green

Oak tree on The Green

Leigh Parish Council recently commissioned a tree survey for the land it manages. Excluding The Spinney, there are over 140 trees to look after. They are part of what makes Leigh such a beautiful place to live, travel through, work in and visit. Part of the crowning glory are the huge Oak trees on the green. In order to keep them healthy and safe they need a crop.

The large oak tree on the corner of The Glebe, next to the post box (pictured) needs a crown clean. As it sits in the conservation area it needs to be approved by MVDC planning. Once that has gone through, the work will be completed as soon as possible. There will be more work over the next couple of months as we work through the ‘to do’ list.

Playground update and new climber

We have had lots of visitors at the playgrounds since reopening which is lovely to see. In order to keep the playground safe and open we ask that you observe the following:

  • Maintain social distancing. Stay at least 2m apart
  • Be considerate in terms of how long you visit for so that others do not have to miss out
  • If the playground is busy and social distancing is not possible, please come back at another time
  • Do not enter the playground if you have been diagnosed with, or experiencing symptoms of, coronavirus
  • Do not bring food or drink into the playground
  • Ensure that your hands are clean before entering and when leaving the playground
  • This site is not serviced for cleaning or litter picking. There should be nothing left behind.

We are delighted with our new conical climber and we hope your children are too!
