Happy 1st Birthday to New Leaf!

Happy Birthday to us! May 29th 2020 marks one year since a post on the ‘All Things New Alresford’ Facebook group sparked local interest and gave birth to the community group New Leaf Alresford…and what a year it has been.

A growing Facebook group boasting 370 members and more followers on Instagram, we’ve launched a website, registered as a charity, connected with other local groups including Perin’s Eco Club, Rotary and The Itchen List, and consulted with The Alresford Show and The Watercress Festival.

We’ve shared ideas and information, distributed hundreds of plants and trees to reduce waste and raise money for The Hairy Pot Plant Company and The Alresford Pigs, pushed for a Tetrapak recycling point and promoted local businesses adopting good environmental practices. We were also delighted to be nominated for a Mayor of a Winchester’s Community Award.

Over the last two months our activity has been constrained by the pandemic but we are now looking forward to the next 12 months, so please contact us and TELL US what you hope they will bring for our community…

What are your hopes for New Leaf?
