A Jenna in the bag is worth 2 Govers in the bush

Fri 21 Jan
Report written by Nicola Gover

On a gloriously sunny day we met Iain from the council in the resplendent Glen Gardens ready to trim the trails to our heart's content. Instructed in the art of the "lollipop" we set to our various trees and bushes.

Rich started with trimming the willow as he was the only one tall enough, while Louise and I gave some lovely plump bushes a tidy haircut, and Ellie, Abi and Jenna started on trimming the hedge back in line with the fence.

We all then converged on the hedge, where I got a bit overenthusiastic and forgot we were aiming for in line with the hedge not half a metre below it 🤣 To reach the last bits we had to insert ourselves into the bush, which got some funny looks, but we were soon done, and proceeded to tidy up. Deciding to combine both bags of trimmings, Jenna (very keenly) volunteered to get into the bag and squish it all down, which worked a treat.

Job done, we strolled to the nearest cafe (for the second time for Abi & I!) for a well deserved lunch and chat.

A wheely poorly bookcase

Fri 21 Jan
Report written by Nicola Gover

Our mission was to remove a very poorly bookcase that had got water-damaged in a flood, so that it could be taken away and the house cleaned up fully. But first we had to remove a gazillion crime thrillers and one spider (carefully released outside by Abi). Luckily the top half lifted off for easy carrying, and the bottom half turned out to have wheels!

Done in no time we headed for a quick coffee before the community mission down the road 🙂

Coffee connoisseurs

Wed 19 Jan
Report written by Michal Czekajlo

A small team of Yorkies decided to do some good on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon.

Some of us went to the morning mission at Tedder Road park, then for a coffee and a cake at relatively new, yet already famous bakery outlet on York Road in Acomb. Refreshed and powered up we assembled on Cambridge Street to sweep leaf and other detritus from a 'forgotten corner' which is going to be transformed with planters and fruit trees. After 45 minutes we gathered 10 bags full of damp leaf and one full bag of litter - picked by Rich around the nearby hedge.

Conversations today were about textiles recycling, carbohydrate foods hierarchy and running of course.

We were having such good time together that that we decided to go for another coffee, this time to the Refill place, just off Nunnery Lane.

Hob Moor Path Tidy

Wed 26 Jan 18:30 pm
Little Hob Moor, Bottom of the path, York, YO24 1DY
Help users feel more secure and comfortable using this footpath.

Beki from York Council has asked for our help on a part of Hob Moor that is currently looking as if it is uncared for. This will involve clearing the weeds and soil from under the railings and widening the path where the weeds and soil are encroaching.

Meet on the Tadcaster road side of the underpass. This is just below the allotments where the yellow railings are.

CamLow tidy up

Wed 19 Jan 12:00 pm
Lowther Terrace, Outside Oxford House, York, YO24 4AG
Weed and leaf free pavements for residents to enjoy

Join me for an exciting lunchtime hour using hoes, leaf blowers etc. to tidy up paths across the Cambridge Street/Lowther Terrace residential estate.

Jenny form the Council will provide the tools, but please bring your own gardening gloves.

It can be cold, so think multiple layers of clothing.

It will be daytime, so no head torch required ;)

Cakes and refreshments will not be available, however there is a corner cafe nearby which we could visit after the task for a cup of coffee/tea and a slice of cake.

Meet on Lowther Terrace outside Oxford House, near the gate in brick wall leading to the train station.
