Local charity, SAGE Greenfingers, is having a busy summer.

In June they pulled in an audience of over 120 to watch a fun and thought provoking play on the theme of chocolate by travelling theatre company, Mikron. Then on 28th June, 35 SAGE members, volunteers, and staff piled onto a coach for a day trip to Cleethorpes.

For some members this was the first time they had seen the sea. And they were in luck – the tide was in! Several rolled up their trousers and ventured in for a paddle and some pulled on flippers and trunks and plunged into the brown brine for a short swim.

Weather-wise the rain held off until just before 4pm, giving people plenty of time to explore shops, the sea front and do justice to the many fish and chip shops. The crazy golf proved lots of fun for those unsure of which end of the club to hold as well as those accomplished enough to achieve the occasional hole-in-one.

If you’re interested in the various activities SAGE runs to improve mental and physical wellbeing, come along to our Open Day on Grimesthorpe allotment sites 11 – 2pm on Tuesday 16th August with a free buffet lunch. Call 0114 273 7718 for more information.
