    Activity description

    Green Gym sessions are free, 3 hour long practical conservation sessions. These include a half hour tea break, giving volunteers an opportunity to chat and catch-up. Activities in sessions can vary from week to week, depending on the time of year and what needs doing in the park. These can include looking after our wetlands area and maintaining our trees in the park, creating homes for wildlife, litter-picking, etc. Through these activities, we can improve our health and wellbeing through a combination of physical exercise, socialising, learning new skills and offering our free time to benefit wildlife and the local community. The green, outdoor setting of sessions also has many benefits to our physical and mental health.
