Brilliant launch day at Cliftonville in Bloom, We had 39 entries sign-up on the day for the competition this year. GRASS is absolutely delighted the whole community turned out! A massive thank you to A Better Cliftonville, Ageless Thanet and FOCC for their support.
Friends of Cliftonville Coastline dig and plant beds at the Newgate Gap shelter.
Friends of Cliftonville Coastline are one of the groups in the Ramsgate Waitrose “Community Matters” charity token scheme.
Shoppers put their token in the box of the project they want to support. The more tokens a cause gets, the bigger the donation they receive. Each month Waitrose donates £1,000 (£500 in convenience shops) between three local good causes.
The group will be in the token scheme throughout December in Ramsgate, so please support FOCC in their bid.
The GRASS community group will be hosting an open meeting for #Cliftonville residents and businesses to discuss #CliftonvilleGames 2019. We would love to meet you at the Belle Vue function room as this will be a brilliant opportunity for people to share ideas and discuss how we can make the event even better.
Further information on the Cliftonville Games can be found at our website:
GRASS had a really successful day at “Stronger Kent Community Fair” today in Ramsgate. The event was a great opportunity to talk with fellow organisations and volunteers. It was a great opportunity to network and meet volunteer groups from all over Kent.
At the end of April we held our launch event at the Cliftonville Farmers’ Market and, despite the chilly weather, it was a resounding success. A BIG thank you to those hardy Cliftonville residents who popped along to say hello and to sign up for the competition, many of whom I know were thrilled to receive some FREE plants to go in their garden! Please read on for further news about more free plants and discounts for ALL competition entrants….
Free plants for YOU!
We’ve replanted all the leftover plug plants from our launch event (donated by Bunnings & B&Q), so we’ll grow these on for another week to get them established and then give them away. If any entrants would like to receive some of these FREE plants please email us by Friday 18th May and we’ll arrange to get them to firstname.lastname@example.org
