They are doing their bit to brighten up Bromley’s often neglected green spaces – South London News

A team from the Prince’s Trust took part in a program called the Three-in-one community project to carry out important work around Bromley.

Their ambitious project included three different efforts, each aimed at improving the local environment and promoting community involvement.

The first part of the ‘Team Blessed’ project involved cleaning up Poverest Park and Covet Wood – much-loved community spaces on Footbury Hill Road, Orpington, that were in need of tender loving care.

Their efforts not only helped improve the environment, but also created a sense of pride and ownership among local residents.

The team then worked with the Badger Trust to create an engaging badger game, designed to raise awareness about conservation.

Combining fun and education, they sought to inspire a new generation of environmental stewards and wildlife advocates.

In another exciting initiative, the team helped support Superzones Activity Week – Bromley Council youth programs with street art and arts and crafts activities that engaged participants of all ages.

The team also organized a raffle to raise money and support their community projects, demonstrating their ingenuity and commitment to sustainable initiatives.

The latest outcome of their project was helping to restore Priory Gardens Community Kitchen Garden in Church Hill, Orpington.

The team overcame the challenge of an overgrown garden and cleared the space with care and attention before planting seeds and painting planters.

They added a vibrant street art sign in the vegetable garden, which served as a beacon to encourage local involvement and volunteerism.

Princes Trust team leader Sheromie Brewster said: “Through their determined efforts and collaborative spirit, Team Blessed has not only transformed physical spaces, but also nurtured a sense of pride and unity in the community.

“Their multi-faceted project is a testament to the power of teamwork, creativity and a shared vision for a better, more connected community.
