Hole lot of digging and planting

Fri 17 Dec
Report written by Julian Osman

Friends of Ladywell Fields have been looking after around 100 saplings of various sorts and today was the day for transferring them from the local nursery to the park. Two Goodgymers attended to be met by the friends and started the day by digging many holes. After this it was time to plant the mix of trees consisting of hawthorn, blackthorn, maple and dogwood. Post planting trees needed to be toed in and watered, the water being provided by an ingenious system of dumpling a bucket on a rope into the nearby river and pulling it out (very much care having been taken to ensure hold was kept of the other end of the rope). All that remained was to cover the base of the newly planted trees with mulch and the task was complete.

Planting tree saplings in Ladywell Fields

Fri 17 Dec 11:30 am
Ladywell Fields, Malyons Road, London, SE13 7XE
Improve the space for the local community

Friends of Ladywell Fields have been tending about 100 saplings in the Iona Orchard Nature Reserve since winter 2019/20 (bequeathed to them by the Friends of Hilly Fields).

They have now identified a new permanent home for these saplings - and with the Council's permission we will transplant the saplings to continue the hedge along the railway in the vicinity of the children's playground (in the North Field).

11.00am-12.30pm - we will mark out the hedge line and dig the holes (1ft apart) for the saplings 13.30-15.30pm - we will transport the saplings, in several wheelbarrows, from the Iona Orchard over the 'curly bridge' to the planting site and quickly heel them in.

Volunteers needed to act in an emergency scenario

Wed 24 Nov 12:00 pm
Old Spike Roastery, 54 Peckham Rye, London, SE15 4JR
Help Southwark Council be better prepared for emergencies (i.e. unexploded world war two bomb)

VIRTUAL EVENT - nothing is happening at Old Spike Roastery, just needed to put down a location.

The scenario exercise, run by Southwark Council, will simulate a ‘rest centre’ – a community centre where people would be evacuated to in the event of an emergency, in this case an unexploded world war two bomb. The exercise will allow British Red Cross volunteers, local authority officers and local organisations to practice what would happen in this situation, including registering attendees at the centre, providing emotional and practical support and signposting, and dealing with tricky requests. Although the exercise is run by Southwark, it will be attended by representatives from multiple South London local authorities.

Please sign up here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/southwark-emergency-scenario-exercise-rest-centre-tickets-207958628857

Who is involved? British Red Cross Emergency Response Volunteers, Community Resilience Advocate Volunteers, Local Authority Officers and partner organisation volunteers are requested to join a scenario exercise held via Zoom to practice, discuss and reflect on the respective roles and responsibilities they have during an emergency when in a Rest Centre.

What will it entail? Using a number of scenario events (injects) based on real experiences and high risk scenarios, the exercise will analyse and discuss how, why and what would be done by volunteers and officers operating in a rest centre. The event will take place via Zoom and an informational session will cover everything you need to know about using Zoom, as well as other exercise details and support.

Exercise Focus: Working in a Southwark Rest Centre following evacuation after an unexploded ordnance (UXO) in the local area.

When is it? Join us for a 1 hour 30 minute lunch-time session on Wednesday 24th November, 12-1.30pm.
