Six months ago, four local residents in Eastney came together to look at their neighbourhood greenspaces and figure out how they could bring wildlife back to their community. After a successful social media appeal for support for this new project, Wilder Eastney was born, and wilder plans were drawn up.
Local residents spent the last six months negotiating with the council in order to gain permission to work on their land. They successfully secured £850 in donations and free flowers and trees from local businesses and organisations. On 26th of September 2021, dozens of residents and community groups came together to begin work transforming the green space along Marine Court.
