Sleepy shift

Fri 27 Aug
Report written by Judy Knapp

Today's clinic was pre-booked appointments for 12-16 year olds, accompanied by their parents and a few under 30s for their second jab.

Unfortunately there were quite a few no-shows, so there were looong gaps between patients and lots of quiet moments. Perhaps people had other bank holiday plans.

True Grit

Mon 23 Aug
Report written by Jen Stoneham

Today's task was passed on to GoodGym through the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and involved laying the (literal) groundwork for a new wild flower beach garden in a neglected area of St Jude's Church yard.

Thanks to Ellie's before and after pictures you are able to see all of the weeds, grass and animal carcasses (!) we dug up to make space for some new wild flowers. Helped by Andy from HIWWT and two lovely volunteers from the church, many hands made light work of what seemed a very daunting task!

The volunteers from St Jude's were overwhelmed with the work our team achieved today - hopefully we'll be back soon to finish the job!

Straight through.

Thu 19 Aug
Report written by Jo Kitching

Caroline and Jo attended the morning session at the clinic this morning. This was Caroline’s first volunteering role at the vaccination clinic and as they were short on volunteers was soon allocated to the corridor and waiting area. Jo could only make a short visit to the clinic and was working on the waiting area if and when it was needed. Caroline was volunteering for the full shift that finished at 1200. The flow of patients this morning was quiet and a good mixture of first and second vaccinations. Most patients were able to go straight through into the treatment rooms without much waiting. If you have any availability on Saturday to help out or are interested in helping out at other vaccination clinic sessions. Please check our happenings.

Making Room For Nature

Mon 23 Aug 10:00 am
Kent road, Southsea, Portsmouth, PO5 3EL
This is a real starter for the community group who are mainly elderly so physical work is limited.

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wilflife Trust are working with volunteers at St Jude's to create a better, "wilder" garden space. The task is to help prepare the ground for planting which is currently gravel with some weeds.
