Mechanic Mondays starting 24th March 2014

The first Mechanic Monday at the new Bike Kitchen was marvellous! Several people dropped in to work on their bikes - Jay patiently showed how to oil a chain properly, realign a wonky mud guard, adjust gears so they run smoothly, and a couple of people even got to true their wheels! 

We're running sessions every Monday 7 to 9pm. It's free, but donations will help with running costs.

It's just off St John's Rd, next to the new canoe racks.

Spring Gardening

We will be doing a bit of spring cleaning in the wildlife garden on Sunday 6th April from 10am till 13:30.  It is a good chance to get out and enjoy the garden with friends while we make sure it looks amazing for the up-coming Wild About Wivenhoe events at the end of April.

The pond is becoming established and is full of newly hatched tadpoles.  So bring the kids down to have a look at them.  If anyone has some pond weed that they can add to the pond that would really help, but remember to wash them first to remove any duckweed!

If you are interested in coming along but not sure what to bring or where to go please get in touch with me:

First seeds at the Allotment

When did that happen - it's March all of a sudden! With the sleep still in their eyes, Team Transition Wivenhoe peeks out of their hibernation cave and notices that it's time to sow the first seeds at the allotment. Get to it!
Linda clears a bed, ready for something new.

You can come and help Transition Wivenhoe (and have a share of any harvest) on Plot #1 at the Wiv Allotments on the first Sunday of the month between 2pm and 4pm. Email for details.
