York June Volunteer Social and Gardening

Thursday 22 June 2023
10:00 - 13:00

Rowntree Park Reading Café

Each month we meet at a different location. It’s a great way to get to know other volunteers and chat all things Move Mates (or anything else you fancy chatting about!).

This month we will be meeting at Rowntree Park to join the Friends of Rowntree Park in a volunteer gardening session. Afterwards we’ll be heading to the café for refreshments and a chat.

The gardening will take place from 10-12 but feel free to come along for just a part of it. You can also skip the gardening and meet us at the café at 12.


This is a great opportunity to spend time with your fellow Move Mates whilst helping another voluntary organisation in maintaining one of York’s wonderful green spaces! Several of our Move Mate pairings walk in the park regularly so it’s a great chance to connect with the people who look after it and get some exercise 🙂

The volunteer gardening lead will be running us through our tasks at 9:30am but we will be on hand to take you through them at any point during the session should you come later.

We will meet at the bottom of the steps to Rowntree Park Reading Café at 10am or inside the café at 12pm. What3Words Location – https://w3w.co/alive.tonic.thin
