Dear Penge Green Gym Supporters

 

Great day out at the Penge Green Gym Open Day


The sky may have been a little grey but the residents still turned out in force for our annual open day.

The gardens looked spectacular with many roses in full bloom and many people commented on how beautiful it looked.  The smaller residents enjoyed the treasure hunt and having their face painted whilst the parents and other locals enjoyed the plant stall and a cup of tea and a piece of cake.  It was lovely to see the gardens full of people and here their lovely feed back about the work that we are doing here.


Sadly, the night before our open day our greenhouse was vandalised once again with many panels kicked in and plants that we were selling that day scattered on the floor.  Luckily, many of the plants were salvageable and were snapped up by the locals.  The vandalism is an ongoing problem and we are liaising with the local police.

Dear Penge Green Gym Supporters

 
 

Come to our Open Day!


Yes, it's that time of year again when Penge Green Gym works extra hard to make Winsford Gardens look it's best for our annual open day in conjunction with the Open Gardens Squares Weekend and the Penge Festival.  This year it is on a Sunday and we will be having lots of activities for children including a treasure hunt and painting activities and they can even have face painted too!  Thanks to a good spring we also have a large stock of plants that we will be selling and to relax you there will be a taster Tai Chi session.  So come along, and bring your family and friends to enjoy a lovely day out.  The full poster is at the bottom of the newsletter.  We'd also like to thank the Landscape Group for helping us to get ready by mowing and strimming the lawns.  It is looking very smart!


 
CEB Global Impact Volunteering Day


We had a fantastic day when members of CEB came to help us repair our hazel fence that surrounds the wildflower meadows.  The enthusiastic team quickly repaired the woven fence and then carried on the good work by planting out the raised vegetable beds, clipped hedges and helped to dig our new woodland path.  Lots of fun was had by all and we thank you all for your hard work!




 
 

In Other News


Some of the members of the Penge Green Gym went to our sister gym at Bromley to help them celebrate their first day as an independent group.  Members of TCV and Bromley council were there to offer their support and welcome the new group.  We were given a guided tour around the park at College Green and the volunteers supplied a wonderful buffet.  We wish Bromley the best of luck for the future.



Meanwhile in Winsford Gardens, we are on the cusp of summer and the park is looking beautiful.  Many of the roses are now blooming and our work planting perenials during the autumn and winter are now really thriving.

Our greenhouse is also full of plants that will be sold on our Open Day, and any not sold will be planted out.
