Being Creative @ Mercato Metropolitano's festive holiday programme for kids

Sun 19 Dec 10:30 am
42 Newington Causeway, London, SE1 6DR
Helping out "MM in the Community" facilitate this festive programme for the local kids

Mercato Metropolitano near Elephant & Castle is probably best known as a great date venue or hang out spot with friends with its diverse food court, however, they have a "giving back to the community" angle to their business. "MM in the Community" are organizing a programme of activities for the local children during the Christmas break. This includes cooking classes, arts and crafts and theatre workshops.

The classes will be attended by 20 kids (over a two day cycle - new set of 20 kids every two days). The sessions will be run by professionals. However, they would love our support to oversee the activities, look after the children, serve lunch and other small tasks. They would need 2-3 volunteers for this. Please sign-up, if you can commit.

The two day programme is as following:

Day 1 (10:30-13:00): Cooking class and lunch

Day 2 (10:30-15:00): Arts & Crafts, Lunch and Theatre workshop - This listing

Tue 14 Dec 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
Help shape the future of the Lambeth Community for 2022

2021 is coming to an end and it's a busy time for everyone so what better way to end a challenging year than to run with friends and peers who share your values of building and supporting their local community?! ⚡

The task for the evening will be confirmed soon ⛄

This will be the last Group Run of the year for Lambeth and then we will head to a local establishment and take the opportunity to have an open discussion about the future direction of the Lambeth Community, tasks, aspirations of our members and any other topics people would like to raise. ✅

On this front it would be great to have as big a group of runners coming down and giving their views and exchanging with each other!

(For those unable to attend we will have an online get together and continue the discussion there) 🌐

So what are you waiting for? Click the link - get signed up - come run with us - share a festive drink 🎅

Getting these community gardens ready for Winter

How's this for Bang for your Buck - Two for Tuesday is back again - Two Tasks, two great organisations, two sprint distance runs!! 😍

The Remakery is an amazing place where people repurpose old wood/fabric etc. into new furniture and other useful things. It turns out they also have a garden which fits alongside their green credentials!

We've got a few different jobs:

🌲 mulching beds & tree root zones

🌱weeding & tiding beds

✂️ pruning & removing raspberries

🍂 turning & shifting compost

🌳 adding wire mesh around the trees

It's a short run away (1.5k) but we'll have a longer option too!


New to GG Lambeth? We're a super friendly group who meet at Papa's Park near Brixton Station at 7pm on Tuesdays. We run to a local organisation, do a physical task for them and run back by 8:30. You can leave things in Papa's Cafe where there's a loo too! Email me if you've got any questions??

Sanding and painting benches at Hillside Gardens

Tue 5 Oct 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
Providing quality seating at this lovely green space!

Hillside Gardens Park is a fab spot on the way to Streatham which has a great team of volunteers, but they've asked for a hand with sanding down some benches and painting on some wood preservative!

It'd be great if you can bring gardening gloves and head torch would be awesome too! 🧤💡🧤

It's about 3.5k each way and a bit of a hilly one 👌
