A big impact on a Tiny Forest

Derby Report written by Rachel Carthy

Along with Reg and Nat from Trees for Derby, a group of volunteers from GoodGym Derby made a big impact on a Tiny Forest on Saturday.

The sun was shining and the group welcomed Helen from Severn Trent for her first GoodGym session! It was fantastic to have Helen there as she had been at the planting for the Tiny Forest site so it was great to have her knowledge of the site and to provide a bit more background to it. Like the fact each Tiny Forest has been named after a Commonwealth country or nation, with the one we visited being named after the national bird of the Maldives, the white-breasted waterhen. Severn Trent created the Tiny Forests to give communities more access to green space and to leave a lasting environmental legacy of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Find out more about the Tiny Forest the group helped here.

Mandy, Ashley, Grant and Rachel planned to clear the area of weeds, loosen some of the identification tags around trees and do some litter picking to tidy up the spot. On arrival, Reg requested the group helped to trim back some of the plants and focus on clearing weeds....which there were a lot of! In a joint effort, a huge dent was made in a short space of time to clear the site and get it to a stage where the trees that had been planted could flourish. Gardening gloves and leg coverings were welcomed as there were lots of thistles to pull out. Ashley had the find of the morning when he located one of the Tiny Forest tiles and looked underneath to see the insect groups that had made it their home.

We'll be back at the Tiny Forest again to help with regular maintenance and are hoping to join up with Trees for Derby again for a combined effort. Thank you to everyone for attending and helping make a big difference to this small green space in our community. The weekend held some exciting plans for the group as Helen was going to be welcoming a rescue dog into her home and Grant was going on a 100 mile bike ride on Sunday.

Out with the mold and in with the new for 2024

Derby Report written by Rachel Carthy

Rachel was joined by Ashley, Pete and Grant - some really fungis that will really grow on you.

The group were back at St Matthew's Church for a spore-itual session helping to clean up some mold and tidy away some important books, arts and crafts items and nativity figures.

Pleased to be inside on such a cold evening, everyone was made welcome with a hot drink on arrival and talk turned to how 2024 was treating everyone so far and what adventures the keen travellers, runners and cyclists of the group had been up to so far. The group made use of a hoover they found to quickly clean mold off some of the books they were cleaning and transporting to their new homes, meaning nobody had to clean the mold off by hand.

David is really keen for the group to return again soon and everyone commented on looking forward to spring and lighter evenings to be helping out in the garden of rest.

Thanks to everyone who made it out on a cold winter's evening when the sofa and a new tv series to binge is always an appealing option.

Clickety Pick

Derby Report written by Gwyn Williams

Lewis, Ashley, Mandy, Tracey, Rachel, Grantand I got together at Field Lane Community Association to help clear Route 66, the National Cycle Route that circles Derby. It was great to see Lewis here, on his first good deed, and we enjoyed having a chat with him as we set off to motor west (well, to walk...) along the route, which goes all the way around Derby. We walked more that two thousand ...metres... all the way. Our first job was clearing the route of litter, and then to find the signage of Route 66 and make sure that it was clean and clear. Grant, Lewis and Ashley travelled my way up the ladder to clean the signs, and Grant even managed to turn some signs to point the right way! We got several bags of litter picked. We left it looking the highway that's the best.
