The April-June 2017 Nature’s programme is now available. There are plenty of exciting projects over the next few months, including the 3 Rivers Clean Up. As always, booking is essential for these sessions. If you are new to Nature’s Gym, take a look through our FAQ and How to Get Involved pages for more information. If there is anything that you are still unsure of, please feel free to email us any questions.
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.
Please see attached the new Nature’s Gym programme. There are a couple of sites on there that we’ve not been to for a while alongside some old favourites. Please note that Nature’s Gym is not running on 7th or 14th July. Our first session of the new programme will be on 21st July. The following week we will be at Pepys Park for a wildflower/butterfly survey. At this event you will also have the chance to meet with Nick Pond from London Borough lf Lewisham and hopefully a representative of Glendale. This will be your chance to give feedback on any issues/concerns that you may have. We will be emailing you a summary of the Feedback Forms you filled out a couple of weeks beforehand so that you will have chance to see what has already been said and our answers to your comments. Please note that all comments have remained confidential.
We have made a few changes to the April-June 2016 programme. These changes have been based on the feedback we received from the volunteers and now include more information about each site and the objectives that we are working towards. We hope you like the new format, and welcome any comments you may have. For those of you wondering where the transport information is, we decided to remove this because we felt there was too much information on the old style programme that the actual task could be missed. Also a number of people tended to call us to ask where things were, so maybe missed this information anyway! We are planning to produce a document that has all the travel information for all the sites and this will be available soon.
The programme also includes some of the dates for this year’s 3 Rivers Clean Up which will be running from 11th June-2nd July. Please note that if you want to take part in these events, booking is essential, even for our regular volunteers.
The Nature’s Gym programme for January-March 2016 is now available. We don’t start back until 16th January 2016, so you all have a long break to recover! We look forward to seeing you all and welcoming new volunteers in the New Year. There are some old favourites as well as a new site in this programme.
As a gentle reminder, for those that haven’t done so already, please fill out our feedback form and either post or email it back to Jess. Alternatively you can hand it to Jess at a Nature’s Gym session.
