October-December 2016 Nature’s Gym programme now available

2-karl-and-jane

Please find attached the Nature’s Gym programme for October-December 2016.  There are a couple of site scheduled that we’ve not been to for ages which will therefore probably be new to a lot of you!  Due to the number of projects that we have been asked to carry out, there are quite a few different sites this time and so we’ve not been able to stick to the fewer sites idea that we have discussed. Even so, we hope that you will all find something to enjoy!

The last session of the year will be on Saturday 10th December, the exact location and event will be confirmed nearer the time.  We will return from the Christmas break on Thursday 12th January.

Nature’s Gym – Saturday 10 September

Chinbrook Meadows

Chinbrook Meadows

On Saturday 10th September, the Nature’s Gym volunteers will be joining forces with ChArt to carry out some much needed work in Chinbrook Meadows.  Work will involve, clearing the small pond area, cutting back the reeds and clearing some of the nettles the banks. Our good friends at Rivers and People have been doing quite a lot of work here, but we thought we’d lend them a hand.

A little bit about ChART

ChART stands for Chinbrook Action Residents Team and is one of 150 Big Local projects set up around the country.  Each project had at least £1m each to make a massive and lasting positive difference to their communities.  Big Local brings together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live.  Big Local is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and managed by Local Trust. Nationally they work with a range of partners to deliver Big Local, building on the skills and experiences of others to provide expert advice and support for residents.
