The sun shone and the bagels were fresh, so it was another perfect day for volunteers to help us improve our adventure playground. Thank you to GoodGym and their runners Graham, Lisa, Andreana, Bill and Alex, for providing the majority of the muscle and energy – always much appreciated.
We cleared out leaves and debris from behind our building, so that structural engineers HTS can get easier access to investigate and fix some drainage issues. And then the group split into twos and weeded as much as possible, until the sun and hay fever called an end to activities.
Thanks to a great bunch of volunteers, the first of our monthly “community fix” afternoons was a big success
Under the supervision of our playworker-in-charge, Alex William, a group of energetic volunteers cleared up our site: we now have two organised stores of re-usable wood and a contained pile of wood and other waste for removal. And we also removed a significant amount of litter which had built up recently.
A particular thank you to GoodGym for roping in the majority of the volunteers on the day. What a great organisation! Graham, who won the prize (extra gratitude) for longest session, also wrote a detailed run report for GoodGym.
If you’re in the area and you’re keen to help us clear, fix and improve some of the structures outside, we’ll be very grateful! We’re still working on our plan for the afternoon, but all you need is some energy and you’ll make a big difference. No need to stay for the whole time!
From May, we’ll be organising these “community fix” events on the first Sunday of every month. There’s lots to do!
