Clearing the paths at Surbiton Cemetery

Tue 21 Sep 18:30 pm
58 Lower Marsh Lane , Kingston, KT1 3BJ
Make better access for all who visit here

This was a group run but now has to change to a community mission so straight to the task at hand...

The pathways at Surbiton Cemetery have overgrown with moss, grass and mud to form trip hazards and make access awkward especially for those in wheel chairs so we have a chance to some good turns here and grab a great workout!!

Some of us have tackled this task before and mainly in the dark (tad spooky eh) but this time we should be able to get most of the work done in good light (headtorch maybe towards the end might be needed)

Paul should be there to meet us and point us in the right direction - I will add contact details soon

Bring some gloves for sure and consider potential nettles as well actually so leggins etc might be useful

There will be shovels, wheel barrows and more so good physical one!!

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 ; - )

Some of us have tackled this task before and mainly in the dark (tad spooky eh) but this time we shall get a better look at what we are getting stuck into. Charge our endorphins, grab some Vit D hopefully and see the results of our work!

Paul should be there to meet us and point us in the right direction - I will add contact details soon

Allows greater access for more in the community and brightens the environment too!

Nearly went off the rails it was so cold!

Tue 25 May
Report written by Jane Yelloly

Well done to the painting team last night on Phase 2 of the Holy Rails.

Martel, Adam, Tom and Jane hung in there to stay on the rails in the face of icey winds and very cold conditions (so cold Jane ended up painting in her cycle helmet).

GoodGym always like to be completors and finishers - but the cold made the paint less pliable and slow to apply - so it proved mission impossible to ‘holy’ polish off a small patch of railing left - ahhh a tad frustrating!

Thanks to vicar Mark for being such a welcoming host and blessing us with patience and perseverance. 🙏😇

Also to the angelic choir doing some baltic outdoor choir practice that helped keep us going.🎼🎤

And to Adam on his new GG uniform - a PVC onesie! 😂❤️😍

Pray it don't rain and paint the rail - quick while we can!

Tue 25 May 18:30 pm
St John the Evangelist, , Grove Ln, , Kingston upon Thames , KT1 2SU
Help to brighten up the look of a great community Kingston Church

Please God don't let it rain and we may just be able to get an AMEN at this ongoing attempt to help St. John the Evangelist. They need hands to help finish paint the fence on the outside of the church.

Plenty of space for social distance as we work.

Should be a great upper body workout, some might say simply DIVINE!

Task owner will be Mark and if you need to contact him that evening then 077307 99609 is the best number 😊

Bring any gloves you may wish to wear for yourself and a mask in case indoors is needed

A Local School’s Garden Tidy Up

Tue 11 May

St Luke’s Primary School has requested some regular gardening support to keep the front entrance to the school looking tidy. This would help to facilitate more outdoor learning opportunities.

Please bring your own gloves. See you at the Elm Road school gates by the bicycle racks next to the crossing.
