Green Island Tunnel Area Clean Up

17 September 2022 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

I regularly walk through the Abbotsford/Green Island Tunnel from Runciman Street Abbotsford to GI and always look at the rubbish and weeds that have taken over on the other side of the fence line. It disappoints me as I was part of the volunteers from The Green Island Plunket group approx 20 years ago who cleaned up the area and did a native tree planting fundraiser. There was a rock with a plaque of the news of businesses and families who donated to this. Over the years the plaque has been defaced and the area overgrown and rubbish lying around. This area was meant to be ongoingly maintained by the DCC but seems over the years been forgotten. So with Keep New Zealand Beautiful’s Clean Up Week being promoted by our local community group I felt it fitting to put a hand up for this area. The plan is to pick up rubbish through the tunnel, walk area and hopefully clear the overgrown weeds at the fence line and hopefully clean up the plaque.
I hope others will join myself and my 9 yr old daughter in helping us clean this area in our community 😄
