Have a natural workout while caring for the local environment
Activities take place at Thornbury Park, Jersey Gardens and Redless Park
Isleworth Green Gyms will be running three events each week from 15 November providing the opportunity to get fit and help the area’s environment.
On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays you will be able to join in and help look after local greenspaces and keep fit with a natural workout.
Activities will include sowing wildflower meadows, planting bulbs and trees, creating wildlife habitats, pruning shrubs and managing vegetation.
No experience is necessary and all guidance and tools provided.
All volunteers regardless of experience or levels of fitness are welcome. Experienced leaders start and finish sessions with a few minutes of gentle exercises and stretches to get muscles warmed up and reduce the risk of injury. A break is taken halfway through the sessions for hot drinks, healthy snacks and a chance to get to know other participants.
Activities will include: creating wildflower meadows, pruning vegetation, creating wildlife habitats, path maintenance and more!
All sessions must be booked in advance.
You are advised to wear sturdy footwear and dress appropriately for the weather. Although tea and biscuits, you need to bring a packed lunch.
All sessions take place from 1035am – 2pm. On Tuesdays, it is at Jersey Gardens (TW7 4PS) – meet at green tools container near tennis courts inside the park, Wednesday take place at Thornbury Park (TW7 6JX) – meet at green container beside sports pitch and Thursday sessions take place at Redlees Park (TW7 6DW) – meet at green container near Redlees Art Studios.
Contact Naomi on email@example.com or 07483 149629 to book your place and for more information.
The sessions are organised by The Conservation Volunteers which aims to bring people together to create, improve and care for green spaces.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
