When you find yourselves in another lockdown, with tight restrictions on contact and mixing in place, how do you help members of the community who are interested in caring for green spaces to find out more? 

The thing to do is to turn to the time-honoured solution to virtually any problem, a jolly old cup of tea of course!

On January 20, Groundwork South is offering the first of a series of Green Café sessions for anyone interested in discovering more about Torbay’s parks, gardens and community Green Spaces.

With a little help from technology - in this case Zoom - the café sessions will give people from across the Bay the opportunity to discover more about our parks, gardens and other Green Spaces;... where they are, their history, how they are cared for and by whom and to hear from some of the people involved.

It’s also a chance to learn how you can make a difference and to share experiences, ideas and aspirations for our Green Spaces.

While it may not allow the human contact we need, it is hoped that sharing a ‘virtual’ cuppa and a chat with like-minded people will go some way towards bringing a touch of normality to these very different times.

The cafés will take place each Wednesday at 3.30pm via Zoom. They are open to everyone, but you do need to contact Groundwork by 5pm the day before to book your space and to ensure you receive the log in details.
