Greenbank Community Garden Clean
Greenbank staff members braved the rain on Tuesday 8th November to maintain the beautiful Greenbank gardens. The dedicated dozen spent the morning clearing the gardens adjacent to the hotel.
With tools and leadership from Cormac, staff from all departments helped to maintain the gardens for the local community to use.
Weeds were pulled up, graffiti was cleared, and the gardens were tidied. After a few hours of strenuous gardening, the team were treated to a well-earned pasty for their efforts.
Managing Director of The Greenbank, Ben Young, said:
“I’d like to say a huge thanks for everyone who volunteered their time and express my gratitude for participants that continue their efforts to help keep the Greenbank community gardens clean. I look forward to similar ventures in the future.”
The waterside gardens are now owned by the Cornwall Council and free to use for the community. They have been a part of Greenbank’s history for many years. Nowadays, they are a popular beauty spot. They are regularly used by locals and tourists alike throughout the year.
In the summer, they are a favoured spot to watch events that take place on the harbour. The Tall Ships race, the annual Dragon Boat race and Falmouth week events are just a few that take place in the summer.
This latest effort forms a part of The Greenbank’s dedication to contribute to community and charitable causes. The hotel is partnered with the Cornwall Community Foundation and raises funds for local, grassroots organisations and community projects. They are also regularly involved in local beach cleans. In August the hotel raised almost £3,000 for the annual Pink Wig event and breast cancer charities.
