The inaugural meeting of the Sonning Common Eco Group Committee took place on Thursday, 25th January, at Abbeycrest Nursing Home in Sonning Common, marking a significant step towards the development of environmental initiatives within the local community.

Abbeycrest, known for its commitment to community engagement, has generously volunteered several patches of its garden to be transformed into vibrant wildflower meadows and a thriving community orchard. This initiative aims to enhance biodiversity, promote sustainability, and create a welcoming space for residents and wildlife alike.

George King, Regional Sales Support Manager, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating, “It is vitally important to form connections and bonds in the local community so we together can make a difference to the local environment. By joining forces with the Sonning Common Eco Group, we hope to contribute to a more sustainable and ecologically conscious community.”

The Sonning Common Eco Group Committee is set to embark on a series of activities and projects that align with their commitment. The collaboration with Abbeycrest marks the beginning of a community-driven effort to create positive change.

Residents of Abbeycrest are equally excited about the new venture. Angela Morris, a resident at Abbeycrest, shared her thoughts on the initiative, saying, “This is a lovely idea, and I’m looking forward to joining in with the activities planned. It’s heartening to see the community come together for such a positive cause.”

The Sonning Common Eco Group Committee invites local residents and businesses to join hands in creating a greener and more sustainable community.
