Rollin’ rollin’ rollin’
12 runners ran 3.0km to help the Dove Gardens and Bristol Waste in Bristol.
- Tuesday, 1st of February 2022
- Led by Melanie Young
Two tasks were lined up for the GoodGymmers of Bristol on this First of February evening, Dalrymple and Dove Gardens.
After the usual start-up welcoming loveliness, the two run groups ran with their litterpickers to St Paul's and Stokes Croft.
We started tidying at Dove Street Gardens before finding out that the bit we were in was Phase 3 and we needed to find Phase 2 - easy when Bernie was jumping up and down to attract our attention!
We were soon clearing the fly tip and green waste that had been dumped there, a team of four went off to relocate a large planter which turned out to be a HUGE rolling relocation. With considerable logistics planning of whether it would fit between parked cars - spatial awareness is not a GG Bristol speciality! The Dalrymple crew had joined us having not found their task owner so we were able to clear even more of the space to reclaim it for the community. Many tree branches, sticks and ten bags of waste later, it was a rush back to Queen Square for a cool down and on to Eats at Three Brothers.
All without a drop of rain!
