Bluebells at Centenary Wood

Visitors to Centenary Wood may have noticed that the bluebells have been dug up.  This is deliberate action by Teasel, removing invasive Spanish bluebells.  Native English bluebells are rather more delicate - and becoming increasingly rare as woodlands disappear.  It is vital that we encourage our native plants, otherwise they will be overwhelmed by non-native species and become extinct.  Once all invasive bluebells have been removed, Teasel will be seeking funding to replace them with native bulbs.

Please do not plant Spanish bluebells in the wild and, if you have them in your garden, consider removing them and replacing them with the native bluebells, which can be bought easily from reputable nurseries or online.

Grass verges
At all times of the year, but particularly during the grass cutting season, we ask residents not to drive or park their vehicles on the grass verges around the town.  Parked vehicles prevent our grass cutting contractor from doing his job properly as it causes an obstruction and leaves unsightly areas of longer grass.  Parking vehicles on the verges damages them, creates trip hazards, looks unsightly, and also prevents the contractor from cutting the verges safely and correctly.


Meeting space available
Do you need a space for meetings?  Would you like to meet a potential client somewhere private and professional?  We have a variety of rooms available in the Greenacre Centre for hire as a meeting space.  The rooms can be set out in boardroom, Classroom, Theatre or Horseshoe layout and, depending on which room you hire, can take 40 - 300 people.  Tea and coffee, flipchart, paper and pens are available free of charge if required and requested.

Hire charges range in price for each room, from £25.00 for 3 hours for the Maple Room, to £30.00 per hour for the Oak Hall.

A projector is also available to hire in the Maple Room at £40

Please contact Liz Litchfield at the Town Council Offices for availability and bookings on 01462 730064
