Well done to those that volunteered that managed to assist Barnet with its vaccination program over the last month.
here is what Jackie had to say
Did my Barnet vaccine shift today. Checking people in on an Ipad at the door. Free Lucozade and hot chocolate. It used to be a running track. Now it's a mass vaccination hub.
Can’t be bad!.. A shot in the arm for Barnet!
This mission will involve weeding, litter picking and trimming of shrubs. Please bring your own gloves and snacks. All other equipment will be provided.
The Cricklewood Millenium Green is a small green space built on what used to be railway land and air raid shelters. It boasts a number of railway-related sculptures made especially for the Green by a local artist, as well as marked nature trail.
The Green is in need of love, as some of the flower beds are overgrown and the foliage around the nature trail needs trimming back.
So come and help the Green's trustees and volunteers spruce it up as we come out of lockdown!
Six GoodGym volunteers joined a group of local activists for a packed morning of gardening and litter picking at the Cricklewood Millennium Green. It was a glorious sunny day and everyone was itching to leave the lockdown blues behind. We received a warm welcome from the Geen's trustees and volunteers, who have a shed-load of implements. A whole load of plants donated by the local B&Q were produced and we set to digging. It was hard work on hard ground, but we made good progress and left looking better than when we arrived. There is plenty more work to do and we look forward to helping the Millennium Green volunteers make their space even more attractive and welcoming. Special mention to Claudia, who came despite being more than seven months pregnant! I guess we could saay that we were seven GG volunteers!
I managed to get Mrs M the shopping she wanted. She told me that in the past, the council would take her and other older people to the local Sainsbury's to do the shopping but that all stopped with the pandemic. So she is hoping that it will return soon, as she misses the social aspect of going to the shops with some of her neighbours! On my way back home I saw some lovely cherries in bloom and some horses! So all in all, a great trip!
