Volunteer Update and Activities: July 2024

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered in the Waterloo Seafront Gardens during June.  We had 8 at our litter pick in Crescent Garden, and a total of 15 at our three garden maintenance sessions.

We have continued to work on clearing the stream to the pond in Beach Lawn and on the rockery area in Marine Garden.  At our Tuesday session we were pleased to be joined by a group of 11 volunteers from Crown Commercial Services who did some great work clearing ivy off the walls and weeding and tidying around all the benches in the centre of Crescent Garden.

Our volunteer sessions during July will take place on the following dates:

Tuesday 9th July – Garden Maintenance meeting at 9.30am next to the Cafe;
Saturday 13th July – Litter Picking at 10.30am in Adelaide Garden;
Sunday 21st July – Garden Maintenance meeting at 2.00pm in Beach Lawn;
Wednesday 24th July – Garden Maintenance meeting at 7.00pm at the Cafe.

All equipment for garden maintenance and litter picking will be provided, as well as refreshments.

On Sunday 21st July there will be an open air theatre production of Twelfth Night, presented by the Wanderlust Theatre Company.  This will take place in the rockery area of Marine garden commencing 2pm.  More details including booking can be found on our website here

Another date for your diary is our annual Autumn Festival which this year will be held on Saturday 14th September – more information to follow next month! 

Best wishes,
