Saving the Planet, one Band-Aid at a time

Sat 23 Jul
Report written by Judy Knapp

Thanks to Aoife for the title - today it was a litter-pick of tiny band-aids, cigarette butts and torn sweet wrappers at Baffins.

We scattered to all corners of Baffins: Aoife and her helpers in one direction, Abbey, Sinead and I managed to more or less stay together. (Tess wandered after anyone who seemed to have food!)

The Baffins Pond Association was grateful for our help and the little bits of litter added up to some fairly large sacks of rubbish and recycling.

Report written by Katie London

3 Goodgymers helped the lovely Baffins Pond Association set up for their summer fun day. Tables were shifted, staked were hammered and gazebos were assembled. We didn't have long to admire our handiwork, and the shade, before were doing the real graft- setting up tin can alley, floating the hook the ducks and arranging the splat the rats. Rules were discussed, finish lines drawn and then the lovely Jen arrived to woman the stall and deal with the general public! A hot productive day all round.

BPA fun day (set up 830 or help out 1200)

Sat 16 Jul 08:30 am
Baffins Pond Association, Tangier Road, Portsmouth, PO3 6PG
Engage with the local Baffins community

The Baffins Pond Association Fun Day is set to be a great event.

There are 2 different ways to get involved - please put in the comments which one you will be doing. Please send a photo/photos to Katie (katie.cr@goodgym.org) for the post-event report.

0830-1130 (or any part of that time) Set up - this will include putting up gazebos, marking out the main arena area and dog show areas, lifting and shifting from the compound out to the main field

1200-1400 - looking after the BPA games stall I think this is old style games for adults and children to have a go at, not a stall selling games!

When you get to Baffins, please find Jane Cleverley who will give you more instructions.

Info about what's on at the fun day can be found on the Facebook event page

No shady deals here

Sun 10 Jul
Report written by Katie Carew-Robinson

Task of the day was to clear the terrace of as many weeds as possible and give the plants in the fountain some water.

As we were so efficient at weed clearing we also spent our last 20 minutes at the back, chopping back brambles and ivy (& more weeds!) to keep them away from the building.

We got a lot done, especially considering the heat. Definitely topped up the vitamin D levels too.

Thanks everyone for your help. (especially the extra family members who were roped in!!) 🙃
