The Mayor of Haringey honoured The Conservation Volunteers with a visit to Railway Fields on March 7. Cllr Dave Browne saw volunteers install secret bug homes for children to look inside, woodchip paths and coppice hazel. Railway Fields is London's first TCV Green Hub, with conservation volunteers radiating out all round the borough of Haringey, led by TCV with tools, tea, van and green expertise. The Mayor said, ‘I’m pleased to see how TCV is operating from a central Green Hub in Haringey. Strong local partnerships are very important to enabling initiatives like this and in ensuring that vital issues like conservation are kept at the heart of the community.’
