Forge Green Redevelopment (July 2006 - October 2006)

The Halling Association carried out a project to improve the open space at Forge Green, by Halling newsagents. The work comprised:

 

  • new paths and a paved area in the centre;
  • a new outdoor war memorial;
  • new planting of shrubs and trees;
  • a CCTV scheme;
  • new street furniture, including bins and a notice board.

The planting took place in October 2006 to make sure that the plants and trees can establish themselves and the beds dug for planting.  A grand Opening Celebration with special invited guests and Scouts was held on Friday 27th October 2006.  Below are some photographs of the Opening Ceremony and the project area.
