Helping at the Searchlight Centre

Thu 23 Sep 18:30 pm
Searchlight Centre , Kingston Rd, New Malden, KT3 3RX
Allow members of Mencap and those that work there to better utilise this community space

Michelle at Searchlight/ Mencap has reached out for some Good help on an ongoing basis to keep on top of this large community space and all that seems to need doing so very often.

The Thursday slot should give us more scope to work both indoors and out now so the tasks can vary from the garden duty that is always crying out for help to assisting with sorting the cupboards, moving furniture, cleaning indoors and more

Details for what we are working on this evening TBC but don't forget the gloves just in case

Michelle's number should you need on route is 07745814050

WEED come to get out of a bind!

Tue 24 Aug
Report written by Kate MacPherson

It was a pleasure to return to Edith Garden to support the work of Citizen Zoo with Elliot and his team on Tuesday evening. There has been a great transformation since our first visit a couple of years ago. It is now a more beautiful, well-maintained natural space which is litter free and accessible to all.

This local nature reserve is a safe haven for wildlife as well as offering people with disabilities or mental health needs the opportunities to engage with nature. Since our last visit, it now boasts an array of new features including bee boxes, bug hotel log piles, a beautiful pond, hedgehog rehab space and an abundance of well-supported local plant and insect species.

After a brief overview of the space involving many interesting facts about its journey and history (including its previous use as a World War II air raid shelter as remembered by local residents!), Elliot outlined our tasks for the evening. These included clearing the boundaries of the path to maintain the safe access by cutting back any plant life away from the path edges and pulling up any weeds, hacking away at nettles as well as ridding the space of the plant-choking, invasive bindweed .

Many of us chose to brave the nettles and pull at the bind weed. After a good session of clearing, pulling, lopping and hacking, we started to lose the light and had to stop to pack up the tools.

Grateful for Caroline’s baking, we were each rewarded with a homemade brownie! Who knew we could get a brownie and Edith too at our community mission today!

There are more volunteering opportunities ahead with Citizen Zoo at Edith Gardens this Saturday as well as future chances to get inVOLEved in supporting the reintroduction of water voles to the Hogsmill and join in the FestiVOLE ! More details to follow! Watch this green space!

Gardening and landscaping

Tue 24 Aug 19:00 pm
Edith Gardens, Off Raeburn Avenue, Tolworth, KT5 9DA
Help shape the wonderful green space for all to share

Edith Gardens is a project overseen by our super biodiversity officer Elliot of Citizen Zoo and Kingston council.

We have assisted here before but some time back when it was even before grass roots level to help pave the way for this garden which allows access for so many to enjoy.

The project has moved on some so Elliot is really looking forward to us helping with some habitat management of the woodland and the pond area as well as some maintenance of the path. So under his guidance we shall be on full garden and landscape duty

Elliot's number should you need on route for this one is 07906402431

Suggest some long leggins and sleeves in your back pack for when you get there (just in case of heavy terrain)

The little map here for this one did not seem to useful so hope this link can pin it down more. It is just off Raeburn Avenue and tucked at the back a little. First one to get there then feel free to WhatsApp any more location deets to the others ; - )

Sat 21 Aug
Report written by Jassy Drakulic

Short clinic for mostly younger people to get their vaccinations. The church will be handed back after this. With fewer people the badminton court was clearly visible on the floor, maybe they will get used again soon!

Getting out of a bind at the Rose Garden at Fishponds Park

Tue 3 Aug
Report written by Jassy Drakulic

On a fine summer evening Andy greeted six good gymmers and set us to work giving some TLC to the rose beds on the community garden at Fishponds Park. Adam, John and Jassy dug deep to uproot a blanket of weeds, Emily and Victoria untangled the rose branches of bindweed, and Fung Yee dead headed and pruned the roses. We also upturned some wondrous wildlife - an eerie looking but endangered stag beetle larva and a family of small frogs - which Andy made sure to relocate safely. Several sacks of green waste later, we loaded them onto the compost and parted ways, leaving the rose bed looking considerably sharper for our efforts. Thanks to Andy for having us. We look forward to seeing this site blossom over the coming missions.
