Special birthday!

Saturday September 4th 2021 (2 p.m – 4.30 p.m.)

Let’s join together to show how much we have appreciated the Millennium Green during this time of pandemic lockdowns.

The News is that the Green is celebrating its 21st birthday. It was a Millennium project; the mazzard trees were planted in December 1999, and the rest of the Green was opened officially in Summer 2000. This celebration wishes to welcome the planters of the mazzard trees (some of whom were children at the School) to join us and see the outcome of their efforts twenty-one years on.

This free family event will allow villagers to join in to enjoy a day of celebration to learn more about the Millennium Green, it’s upkeep and plans for the future.  There will be stalls, refreshments, events including a Birds of Prey flying display and children’s games/quizzes related to the Green’s Birds, Mazzards and Traditional Wildflower Meadow.

Join us for a village get together and meet new people who also enjoy this fantastic local facility.

Ash Die-Back Disease

We have consulted with tree experts and the ash trees as seen from the Tarka Trail are currently safe but will need to be removed in the future.  Funding has been applied for this.

Traditional Wildflower meadow

Greening the Green – Richer Wildlife

The original plans for the Green embraced a wildflower meadow and we wish to encourage wild flowers on the green. We are progressing this with help from RHS Rosemoor and applying for funding from the Lottery Community Fund.  It will be a gradual process to establish. The plan also includes enriching the hedgerows with varieties attractive to more wildlife and enriching the wetland habitat of the old leat.

Memorial Book/Memorial Policy

Memorial Book/Memorial Policy

Over the years the Trust has been pleased to receive requests from families to plant trees or install a bench in memory of a loved one.  It is lovely that the Green is so enjoyed. There is a Memorial Book set up which allows identification of all current memorial trees.

However, to ensure the continued health of the trees currently planted, we have reached the maximum number of trees that can be sustained, and we would ask all future memorial trees be adopted from our current trees and entered in the Memorial Book.

We are happy to allow memorial benches on approval of type of bench and correct installation
