Greenhithe Neighbourhood Support Update

Hello Greenhithers!

The weather has been wintry and changeable over the past couple of weeks, hopefully the brave new daffodils in the garden show Spring is close at hand.

Neighbourhood Support Update

The latest Crime Map is below, showing incidents during the past month. Police contact numbers are 111 for emergency, happening NOW calls, police and ambulance, and 105 for already happened calls, eg property damage, car break-ins or information about crime in the area.  

Please see what our Community Constable Troy has to say in his August Blog here.

Most of our streets in Greenhithe have a Neighbourhood Support contact person. We are keen to support them and our members who do not have one. So, please contact me if you have not heard from your contact person or if you are willing to connect with your neighbours and reduce the incidence of crime in your neighbourhood.

This month’s national Neighbourhood Support campaign is Random Acts of Kindness which may help give us all a lift.

There are some highlights coming up on our community calendar which can also improve our wellbeing and our Greenhithe neighbourhoods.

The International Friends group continue to increase. The teacher makes the English classes fun, playing Charades and acting out new words. There are usually Mahjong tables in action, and we knit blankets for the Hospital and tiny vests for premature babies. We gratefully accept any donations of wool – please email me to collect. Everyone is welcome to join us each Tuesday between 9.30 am and 11.30 am for a cuppa and a chat.

Greenhithe now has its very own Virtual Men’s Shed – a group working together for fitness and fun on community projects on Saturday mornings, followed by a BBQ. Right now, there is the chance to paint the outside of the Old School Building or the inside of the Village Hall, to help our friends at the Greenhithe Residents Association. Contact Johnathan on to find out more about the Virtual Men’s Shed.

We have a subsidised 6-week Babies and Toddlers Toolbox Parenting Course from Thursday 15 August. at 12 Greenhithe Road. Nikki Bull is presenting. There are still places available.  

Even in the winter, our eco work helps Greenhithers improve our environment and connect with one another. On Sunday 18 August from 1.30pm to 3.30pm there is a Wainoni Park Planting Day. This builds on the excellent work done by the Thursday morning Friends of Wainoni Park group, who continue to help our native flora and fauna thrive. Join in the fitness and fun at the park from 9:30am. There is a Lucas Creek Clean Up at the end of Rame Road on Saturday 14 September 10.30am-12.30pm

There is more to check out in Nicola’s August Greenhithe Ecology Newsletter here.

Let’s not forget out youth, who have an interesting Cooking Class to look forward to on Saturday 31 August 5pm-7pm. 

Kindest regards
