At our W(h)it(ton)s end...

Mon 25 Oct
Report written by JP

It was the return of dark Monday evening missions as 7 hardy GGers made their way to Whitton Youth Zone for the regular garden tidy. Tonight featured shears, rakes, forks and brooms as we tidied the pathway alongside the building and then spent some time in the back area for some bonus points, stopping to admire the new orb-like water feature that has arrived since most of us were last there. Lots of good chat, not least about far less appropriate puns than the above for the run report, and planning of bike rides to come soon...

Helping the Happy Ham Landers

Sat 6 Nov 10:00 am
Corner of Riverside Drive / Croft Way, Richmond, TW10 7NB
Improving the natural habitat of the Ham Lands nature reserve

This is a repeat community mission, which takes place every second Saturday of the month, from 10.00 - 11.30am.

The Friends of Ham Lands work with local naturalists and the Council’s ecology officer to identify work that needs doing in the Ham Lands area.

Tasks will vary from week to week: sometimes we will be clearing weeds, brambles or other undesirable plants, sometimes tackling Himalayan Balsam by the river (in the summer), sometimes it will be a litter pick.

All of these tasks are aimed at (1) maintaining the sheltered open grassland areas and open woodland, to improve the habitat for flora and fauna, and particularly for the local butterfly population and (2) maintaining some of the small footpaths through the scrub that are in danger of being overgrown, to ensure people can continue to enjoy the area.

Please wear working clothes including strong and waterproof footwear. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Friends of Ham Lands are not able to provide gloves and hi-vis vest. Please bring your own gardening gloves. If you have a hi-vis vest or jacket please wear it. If you have secateurs or saws please bring them.

Children are very welcome but need to be accompanied by an adult.

We meet at the corner of Croftsway and Riverside Drive https://goo.gl/maps/78E2thtb5J1f1rP2A

Time: 10.00 – 11.30am

Dancing in the Moonlight

Mon 11 Oct
Report written by Anita

Planting nearly 100 plants at The Arcade in Monday’s moonlight (with the help of head torches and a couple of work lights). But Dancing sounds much more poetic than Planting.

Jack led a Monday night run from Richmond Green to rendezVous with Cathy and Anita at The Arcade, in Buccleuch Gardens, for a herculean planting session under a crescent moon.

An awesome debut from Zoe, who laughed at having to shovel manure on her very first GoodGym mission.

Thank you Zoe, Rebecca, Naomi, Monika, Maena, JP, Jack, Cathy and Anita. You are all awesome.

Bag Ladies and Men

Sat 9 Oct
Report written by JP

The morning was a little fresher than we’ve been used to in recent weeks, with mist hanging over the tree tops. We made our way deeper in the Ham Lands than usual, tasked with clearing a section by the trees of brambles and other plant matter.

It was a good bunch with a collection of Richmond regulars and Freya, Zoe and Craig from Kingston. Armed with rakes and loppers the team got stuck in and soon enough there were piles of plant matter gathering alongside the path.

We only had one large canvas bag this time so it filled up pretty quickly, ready to be dragged by a team of Bag Ladies or Bag Men (or a mixture!) into the undergrowth to be emptied out.

It was lots of fun as usual, even if by the end our focus was waning as we were all ready for a trip to the Swiss bakery for a hard-earned cheesy reward!

Next up will be 6th November - link to sign up coming soon!
