Being an Area Activator
Slough Area Activator Manjit Birk talks about how she has her “dream job” and what’s involved.
This session is open to anyone who fancies a little walk n talk.
To help out mental health it’s good ho have little sessions like this where we can
Get some fresh air
Walk a route you wouldn’t normally do
Talk to others
We will meet at Langley memorial park and then do a short walk to the Langley part of the Slough Canal. We will then go for a 30 minutes walk in one direction, then walk 30 minutes back.
This is a day time session to ensure safety for all.
Something slightly different this week!
Rather than go out for our normal Monday evening group session, for this week we will change the day to a Thursday and tie it in with Remembrance Day.
The session will involve a short run/walk in Baylis Park, followed by a visit to the War Memorial stones in the Memorial Park with a minutes silence and finished off with a litter pick of the gardens
Please bring your night lights
Litter pickers will be provided
We will meet at the pond in Baylis Park at 18:30.
There is parking locally in the nearby roads (Woodland Ave; Baylis Rd).
It was so lovely to be back at St George's Church. We really do love this task venue.
We meet at Kennedy Park and knowing we only has a short walk/run to the task we decided to go for the hills! The views from this park are actually quite stunning!
After our hill sprints we made our way to the task venue - We had to get to the Church on thyme!
On arrival we met Eva, who showed us to the area that needed our help.
The garden has definately missed us as the weeds had shot back up! But we didn't moss around. Each one of us grabbed a tool and got to work.
With all the tasks now being in the dark (which weirdly I find more theraputic!) the night lights were out as we set to work on the 'circle of life' paving slabs.
The topic of the evening was Brexit! We realised that the lack of bread and pasta in Sainsbury's is making us feel like nothing compares to EU
Literally in a jiffy we had the circle looking like it had had a good cut back and sides! We are actually quite good at makeovers!
Thank you Eva for our olive treats at the end - 'Olive you so much'!
Next week we are back at Wexham Park Hospital for a litter pick task.
Manjit has forgone the usual weekend routine. Instead of lie-ins, roasts and strolls around the park Manjit has dropped everything to run a GoodGym mission for someone who needed help. Respect
