See what's happening in Penge this week....

Penge Green Gym


Hello Green Gymers

What a dramatic change in the weather this Wednesday! Compared to last week's sunny session which had volunteers stripping down the layers and basking in the sunshine, this week the rain had us pulling on hoods and zipping up jackets against the wind.

Penge Green Gymers are notoriously unstoppable though and achieved a huge amount of work. The rose beds received a thick mulch with some fragrant manure/compost mix - much needed as they didn't do so well this year and we hope this protection and injection of nutrients will help them put on a better show next year. The leaves were again raked up and piled into the leaf mulching bins. The trees are almost bare now so only a couple more weeks to harvest this bounty. We now have a growing store of rustic willow trellises which have been lovingly handcrafted by Green Gymers - these will be fantastic for growing climbers up next year. Last but definitely not least, the leaders showed the true meaning of team work this week, spending the session with eyebrows furrowed calculating safety distances and equipment specifications as they marked out the locations of each piece of our natural play area.

Next week we'll be beginning work on our seating area and natural play area in earnest. We will also be continuing the harvest of the autumn leaves and making more willow structures. Do come down and join us!

See you then...

Our partners Mind have asked if we could share the following on Mental Helath & Policing
The Independent Commission on Mental Health and Policing, chaired by Lord Victor Adebowale, is currently reviewing the work of the Metropolitan Police in terms of how it works with people with mental health problems. The team are keen to hear from individuals, family members, carers, advocates, MH professionals and the general public who have had contact with the Metropolitan Police due to a mental health related matter.  
If you have had contact with the Metropolitan Police due to a mental health related matter in the last 5 years that you'd be willing to share with the independent team collecting evidence please complete our online survey, which will take approximately 10 minutes,
Thank you
