The sun shines on GoodGymers!

Tue 15 Jun
Report written by Naomi Hope

On a glorious summer's evening, six of the team tackled a gardening challenge at Oakwood Community Centre.

Carole, the Centre's fabulous Chairperson, gave us a warm welcome and told us all about how the facilities support people from the local area. We had a tour of the renovated and beautifully decorated hall and the fanciest Community Centre toilets we'd ever seen!

Their lovely newly planted borders were sadly already being invaded by weeds, so on went our gloves and the fun began! With the sun shining down on us and the sights and sounds of the local community enjoying the adjoining park, we could see why so many people want to use the Centre for their groups and events. It was our mission to clear as much as we could to neaten up the borders, as well as digging out those pesky weeds that fill every crack in the path!

It was great to see that the litter picker wasn't needed because the area was so clean and well looked after ... just those weeds to tackle. After an hour and a half, with lots of chatting and hard work, it looked brilliant! So much so, that Carole has invited us back .... every week!

Huge congratulations to Gwyn for achieving his 25th good deed last night and to Tracey who completed her 50th good deed last week, making this one her 51st!

Thank you to everyone who supported with tonight's mission.

Clearing weeds ready for the summer

Tue 15 Jun 18:15 pm
Springwood Drive, Oakwood, Derby, DE21 2RQ
Making Oakwood Community Centre a nicer place to visit.

Clearing weeds and collecting any litter from the garden that surrounds the centre - let's spruce up the space ready for all the visitors this summer!

Please bring your own gardening gloves, disposable gloves if you have any for litter picking, any hand tools you want to de-weed the garden with. Your own hand sanitizer will be useful as well as a face mask to hand just in case. Bin bags are provided and can be left in the outside toilets when full.

I've been advised there is plenty of parking and we'll be given a key for the outside toilets.

Meet at Oakwood Community Centre.
