On Tuesday 4 of us walked 1.4km to Addiscombe Road, to where we were met by Andrea, the project coordinator for Joan Pick memorial bed.
The bed is located near the corner of Bisenden Road and Addiscombe Road, they will be unveiling a plaque and planting some plants on Wednesday 6th March 2024 in memory of Joan Pick.
Joan Pick was known by many as a local celebrity - a scientist and writer determined to reduce her carbon footprint. It their our goal to come together as a community as part of Joan’s legacy and make a difference.
However before all the celebrations the bed needed to be prepared and thats where we came in. We were able to weed a section of the bed and planted some plants, we turned quite a few heads working in the dark. Quite a few members of the community on their way home from work stopped to talk with us to find out what we were doing and a few others while walking by thanked us for the work we were doing. It was quite nice not to be mistaken for offenders on community service, although we were doing community service but without committing a crime.
The following day we received the message below from Andrea;
Thank you so much for bringing your team to work on our Joan Pick memorial bed at the Boulevard at the top of Bisenden Road in the dark last night with your team, who were wonderful - such hard work, and effective too. We're delighted with the progress.
Are you around on Wednesday 6th March 2024 fancy being apart of the unveiling of the plaque and celebrations?
