The Annual General Meetings of the Friends of St Stephen's Millennium Green & the St Stephen's Millennium Green Trust will take place on November 19th in the foyer of St. Stephen's Church at 7:00pm.

Diamond Jubilee Tree Planting

To celebrate the Queenʼs Diamond Jubilee and their Diamond Wedding Anniversary,Michael and Lorna Powne have kindly donated a walnut tree for the Millennium Green. The tree was planted at the top of the Green just along from the totem poles on November 6th. The photographs below show Michael and Lorna finishing off the planting with the final spadesful of soil.

Bath in Bloom Award

The Bath in Bloom awards were distributed yesterday (Sep 11th) evening at the Guildhall. St. Stephen's Millennium Green won gold, overall winner in the 'Environmental project-community or individual' category.

Congratulations to the gardeners and all who work to raise the funds to keep the Green continuing to be the special place it is for the local community and for those from further afield as well.

The cup will be on display at the Christmas party, December 8th at St Stephen's Centre on the buffet table filled with holly.

New Totem Poles In Place

The new totem poles are now in place. Thanks to Edwina Bridgeman and her team of helpers for decorating the poles on the weekend of May 26th. See the photo gallery below for pictures of the new poles. The work took a lot of digging and 'concreting' by Brian Roper and other volunteers to erect the new steel poles. The poles were then decorated by Edwina Bridgeman with help of local children who painted the blocks ready for the new totem poles.

Funding for the totem poles came from Bath and NE Somerset Council through one of the local Councillors (Patrick Anketell-Jones) and his Ward Councillors Initiative fund.

Read the 2011 Annual Report for the St Stephen's Millennium Green Trust

For those who were unable to attend the recent AGM for the St Stephen's Millennium Green Trust the full Annual Report for 2011 is available. Two highlights of the year are the unstinting support of the Friends in fund raising (their gift was £4400 this year) and the completion of the transfer of land to the Trust from the ownership of Dr Marianna Clark and the estate of Mr and Mrs Frears. This is a most generous gift for which the Trustees are deeply grateful. We have undertaken to ensure that the land is not developed.
