Downton Millennium Green


This summer many locals and visitors have enjoyed the tranquillity and beauty of the Green. Whether you stroll by the river, walk your dog, or bring your family to picnic and play, the Green is for everyone to enjoy and appreciate.

The team of volunteers who maintain it are appreciative of all the compliments about how good it looks - but are always looking for ways to improve your experience peacefully and safely.

This year the team have bought new tables, planted a willow arch, constructed a willow arbour with seating and mowed and trimmed the plants. Many trees have been planted and these are thriving.  New dog bins have been installed and volunteers empty these regularly, an especially important job! More wildflowers are being introduced to attract a greater variety of wildlife.

The Green is a charitable trust run by volunteers. Funds are raised by inviting people who would like to support the Green to become members of the Trust, at a cost of £15.00 per annum. If you would like to support the Trust please contact the treasurer, Irene Maynard at
