Over 30 people have given their time free to help a local charity, Your Sanctuary, establish a beautiful recreational space for their safe house residents and voluntary staff.
The overgrown and neglected large gardens have been transformed into a beautifully landscaped recreational space for both children and adults to enjoy. Rotary club members, together with numerous helpers from a local church and community, worked tirelessly over a four weeks period clearing the site and creating a garden which will be a delight for children and their mothers. Features include an adventure playground with a natural living willow tunnel to crawl through; a wendy house with all weather play area and picnic bench; and a gazebo. The gardens have been totally replanted with many shrubs donated by Bourne Valley Nurseries and new grassed areas established with ornamental pathways.
The Woking Rotary Bikeathon started and finished at Woking Park, with two routes available to riders. The Woking Rotary Kids’ Bikeathon was a chance to give younger children the chance to be involved by following a short course in the park.
On Sunday May 10th riders gathered ready for a 10am start, with the children's event beginning at 11am. Individuals and groups were encouraged to take part and enjoy The Bikeathon, knowing they would be helping hundreds across the borough with the funds raised.
