What will I be doing?

  • The Green Gym in Chingford is a perfect opportunity for people with an interest in conservation projects to be invested in their local green spaces. We’ll have a balanced program of activities to promote the local green spaces and wildlife as we’ll be working in both Ridgeway and Mansfield Parks, two venues which abound with nature.
  • The Green Gym is an innovative way to get physically active and make a difference to your local environment. Come along and help us improve these fantastic outdoor spaces, whilst improving your health and stamina, and learning new skills. This is an opportunity to meet other like-minded volunteers, give something back to your community, improve the environment and get fit for FREE!
  • All tools and light refreshments are provided, however volunteers should dress appropriately for outdoor work. The Green Gym is open to all, regardless of ability or fitness. All that is required is enthusiasm and the ability to work in a team!
  • Please note that these are adult sessions. If you are aged between 16 to 18 you will need to present a completed parental consent form on your first session. Please contact Gareth Chalmers, Green Gym Project Officer, for further details.
