Over the past seven years, Capital Clean-up’s helped thousands of Londoners spruce up their city, from tidying up nature reserves to removing litter from woods. This year Friends of Albion Millennium Green is taking part in the Capital Clean–Up scheme with several workdays to clear litter and remove large amounts of fallen and redundant chain link fencing and posts which have been overgrown and overladen with plant growth and rubbish. Throughout the summer we will continue bramble, weed tree and shrub clearance and restoration of existing overgrown shrubs and Albion Millennium Green is becoming known as a pleasant and peaceful area, but it still has a large unusable area due to the rubbish, broken down chainlink fencing and considerable overgrowth. The railway path which borders one side of the Green has been perceived long-term as a risky area but the environmental improvements are beginning to change both the appearance and the use of the path as well as the Green The Green was established in 2000 as part of the Millennium Greens scheme. The Friends of Albion Millennium Green group was established to develop and maintain the Green for the benefit of the community. Public events are held on the site for plant and environmental management purposes and for the local community especially local children.
