Another good weed ticked off!

Thu 11 Aug
Report written by Dan Laws

This evening Ellie, Helen and I were joined by task leader Jill at the Southcot Burial ground at the bottom of Lyncombe Hill. The cemetery is a lovely little hidden garden that opens up once a year for Heritage Open Day.

We were tasked with removing large areas of bindweed that had essentially taken over the entire floor of the burial ground, whilst bee-having and staying clear from the active bee hives at the bottom of the cemetery.

As you can see in the pictures we were successful in removing a large area of bindweed in such a short space of time, and it would be great to return soon to continue the job we started today!

Gardening at the Southcot Burial ground Widcombe

Bottom of Lyncombe Hill, Access through wrought iron gates, BATH, BA2 4PG
Help maintain a burial ground for Bath Preservation Trust

Southcot Burial Ground is located at the bottom of Lyncombe Hill and is owned and maintained by Bath Preservation Trust. It is only open once a year for Heritage Open Day and by special request. They need help to maintain the site and really heavily on volunteers. They would like our help to weed the site.

We are a bit strapped for cash so we pay to have some mowing and strimming done but rely on volunteers to do weeding and other maintenance.

Training run & train the trainer

Thu 28 Jul

Hi,

GoogGym have arranged for me to train as a run leader. I’ve done most of the training, but now I have to upload a couple of short videos of me utilising my new skills in order to complete the course!

We’ll be running a little training run for a smallish group, and be aware I’ll be filming a couple of sections - just so the teacher can see me using my skills, nobody else.

Meet in Sydney Gardens, just round the back of the Holborne Museum
