The new outdoor gym in Chinbrook Meadows is coming VERY soon! Work starts on 13th November and, by the end of November you will be welcome to come and try out the equipment. There will be scope for complete beginners, and more advanced exercisers so there is no excuse not to give it a go. Funding for the gym came from Tescos Bags of Help and the London Marathon Trust. The equipment will be provided and installed by The Great Outdoor Gym Company TGOGC. There will be free training sessions in the future too, funded by ChART. More information to come.
Here are some photos from our Apple “Fun Palace“. Lots of people came and everyone told us how much they enjoyed the afternoon. We had music and “yarn bombing”, apple tasting, apple juicing and apple bobbing. We sketched and created “nature prints”. We watched and learned about our local bees. We relaxed in the lovely orchard and had tea and cake – that was apple cake, of course, provided by our park cafe. We will definitely be doing this again next year!
Everything coming together for our orchard celebration this weekend….
- Weeding in the orchard so the trees look their best
- Busy baking of apple cakes
- Fast fingers knitting for yarn bombing
- Collecting of leaves, seeds and twigs for art work
- Buzzing of bees in preparation for outing
- Gathering of apples for tasting, bobbing, juice drinking
