What a lovely morning for our return to Foleshill URC to support them with a grounds tidy.
The sun shone down as 3 members of GoodGym Coventry supported their volunteers in clearing paths and the car park of twigs and other debris.
In around two hours, there was barely a misplaced twig in sight.
Foleshill United Reformed Church have asked us to help with gardening including lawn mowing and hedge cutting.
What a lovely evening to be back out on the canal paths of Coventry canal. We tidied up the paths between bridge 3 and the canal basin.
Good finds this week, a grill, nuts and bolts 🔩 , plenty of bottles, cans and cigarette butts.
On the weekend, that we see the return of junior parkrun, 22 GoodGym members took part in (not)parkrun Coventry. Hopefully you spotted as many signs of spring as I did on my run. New shoes, tulips, daffodils and lambs were the order of the day on a bright but cold day.
Team Springboard offer training, work experience and volunteering opportunities in practical horticulture. They believe that working outside in a natural environment helps to reduce social isolation and improves wellbeing. It also provides the opportunity to learn new skills.
We have visited their allotment before and will be supporting the team with their plans to move areas around, gravity fed irrigation, raspberries, planting asparagus etc.
Please ensure you have gloves with you.
Come and help support the Canal and Rivers trust and Sustrans as we help tidy up the canal paths with a litter pick along the canal paths.
We will meet by bridge 1 just outside the canal basin and will run / walk up to bridge 4. Once there we will tidy around that area using the litter pickers and slowly head back towards the canal basin tidying as we go.
Please ensure you have gloves and with you.
Will will then complete a 3-4km run / fitness session.
The Social Supermarket have asked for help with a stocktake as they organise donations ready for sharing with those in need through the Social Supermarket in the Foleshill Community Centre. Please note the slightly earlier start.
