Join TCV Green Gym in Waltham Forest
TCV has three Green Gyms running in Waltham Forest: Lloyd Park Green Gym, Leyton Jubilee Park Green Gym, and the newest, our monthly Abbotts Park Green Gym. Chingford Green Gym is still going strong, but is now running independently of TCV.
Everyone is welcome to join the Green Gym and there’s always something to suit all levels of experience and fitness. You’ll have the satisfaction of working in some of London’s finest parks, while boosting your physical and mental health and meeting like-minded people. All necessary tools will be provided. Unfortunately at this time we cannot provide refreshments. Find out more about TCV Green Gyms here.
Leyton Jubilee Park Green Gym
Join in and feel inspired… The Leyton Jubilee Park Green Gym runs every Thursday and all are welcome. Sessions are approximately 3 hours long. Get in touch for more details – contact Jonny Joseland on 07740 899 645 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leyton Jubilee Park is Waltham Forest’s largest park, created atop an old landfill site dating back to the 19th century. Sitting in the Lea catchment, Dagenham Brook runs through the park, offering a riparian connection to the nearby Hackney Marshes. Our work in the park largely surrounds the maintenance of our recently planted woodland, which is still in the early stages of its life, work including tree planting, weeding and mulching. Other work will rejuvenate pathways and provide care for our newly created flower beds.
Join us in a park with a huge amount of potential!
Get involved with The Conservation Volunteers every Friday. Sessions are approximately 3 hours long. We meet outside the Stables in Lloyd Park, Forest Road, E17 4PP. For more information, or to join us, please contact Jonny Joseland on 07740 899 645 or email email@example.com.
Located a step back from the busy Forest Road, Lloyd Park features a mixture of landscaped garden and strolling walkways along with first-class facilities and The William Morris Museum.
At the Lloyd Park Green Gym, The Conservation Volunteer’s work focuses on the more wild areas in the park. Much of our work centres around tree care, with other conservation work including bulb planting, pathway clearance and general habitat management.
Since 2013 TCV has helped with a large scale, lottery-funded transformation and restoration of Lloyd Park. First opened to the public by the Victorians in 1900 on land we can trace back to medieval times, the park is a valuable public space with a fascinating history.
Join the Abbotts Park Green Gym
At last, a weekend Green Gym in Waltham Forest! On the last Saturday of each month, Abbotts Park Green Gym meet by the Pavilion in Abbotts Park, Abbotts Park Road, E10 6HT. For more information, or to join us, please contact Jonny Joseland on 07740 899 645 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Abbotts Park is a small, but busy park with a distinct community feel. This is a very young Green Gym that is still forming an identity. We hope to create an environment that caters for all ages and abilities. From meadow patch creation to general gardening, there is plenty to do throughout the year. Tools and gloves will be provided. Children accompanied by an adult are very welcome.
Join the Chingford Green Gym
The Chingford Green Gym runs every Wednesday in Ridgeway Park and Mansfield Park, Chingford. For more information, please get in contact by email at email@example.com.
