It was great to have Samantha, Milly, Claudia and Anna join us for their first GoodGym Bristol Group Run tonight - we hope to see you again soon! They joined more than 40 other GoodGymers heading out for an evening in the sun at Felix Road Adventure Playground. On route there was chair holds, squats, press ups and tricep drips. Let's just say there were a few relieved faces to arrive at the task...
Don't Clo chasing waterfalls
The team had prepared various tasks for our masses to split up into:
The Litter Pickers - as usual, they needed a bunch of clean-beans to tidy up the whole playground from the recent (and current due to half-term) children's visits. They aced it and left it looking spick and span with several bags of rubbish filled.
The Choppers-and-Loppers - a section of the team were on clearing back the overgrown branches hanging into the football pitch to give the young people a safe place to play. The rest of the group were continuing to clear back the nature area and the ever-growing weeds along the paths. There was so many branches and weeds removed that we filled the bin to the brim and beyond.
The Waterers and Waterees - Mel was busy working the hose by the time we got there and was joined by a team of watering-can holders to run back and forth around the area rehydrating the grass and plants all around the ground. Somehow, Matt and everyone else seemed to get more water on them than the grass... 👀
The Impressionists got to work continuing to paint the wooden structure in bright colours to give the whole area a fresh look. We will be continuing this next time...
The Stationary Stationeryers had the detail-oriented job of removing as many staples as possible from the walls all around the mezzanine of the indoor hall using an array of tools from scissors to screwdrivers to nails!
It was a busy half hour, but don't worry, Matt still found time to lie in the hammock and go on a boat trip with Chris. Phew.
Buzzing for cake
We whipped back to Queen's Square (with a Darren & Alex v. cyclist Strava segment on the way) for a stretch off then we shimmied inside to wish Clo a very happy birthday with birthday bumps and eating her delicious bee shaped cake! 🎈
