Village green

Village Green Group

Our aim – to support our community and our environment


We are a  group whose ultimate goals are to protect,  enhance and promote the village green as a community green space and a place of importance.

The well kept appearance of the village green gives great enjoyment to everyone,  therefore our members’ regularly strive to maintain it’s beautiful appearance; providing an all year round floral display of shrubs and flowers  – notably during the summer making the village green an haven for butterflies,  bees and other insects and wildlife.

The village green group hosts the annual switching on of the Christmas Lights.   Now in its 19th year, this is a popular community event, continuing to provide much enjoyment as it brings all ages from the Village together.

Finally,  the group, in conjunction with Middleton Parish Council, has played a big role in the forthcoming plans for our village to mark the centenary of the end of World War One.

If you want to get involved with the village green committee just ask at The Nelson Arms about the possible next meeting or who to talk to.
