Bindweed Ball

Tue 14 Sep
Report written by Melanie Young

After a good old GoodGym powwow in Queen Square, including celebrating Maria and Richard's Green Man Ultra achievements (30 and 45 miles self navigated!), Alice W set off for Brunswick Cemetery, Alice D set off on the longer route yo the SouthVILLE Centre and Maria headed straight to the Centre. Like Pied Pipers, they were followed by red-shirted runners and much chat was had.

Everyone was very impressed by the Sea Shanty Choir Melanie had laid on in the Cemetery* where we met up with the Council volunteers Jo and Di who had dumpy bags and some tools for our bindweed blitz.

We set to in three areas, determined to unearth the (probably dead) tree that was a cascade if bramble and bindweed, make further progress into the triangle bed (halted by the wasps who seemingly quite like bindweed) and a new section of wall of bindweed that stood no chance in the face of Caroline and Richard G who then invented the game of Bindweed Ball - hours of fun.

Vaguely Northern Darren proved that if you grab the same bundle of bramble theee times it hurts you three times, we discovered the the Polish and Czech for "ow" are the same, that sea shanties are a great accompaniment to bindweed bashing but the singers didn't want to come and get the satisfaction of bindweed pulling this evening - adding "I cant get no satisfaction" to their repertoire.

If Alice asks, of course the tree is still alive and will now grow back.

Back at workout, we celebrated Melanie's 800 good deeds and new 500 t-shirt - who will be next?!

The berries can grow even better

It's Tuesday so it's a group run, meeting in (and returning to) Queen Square and leaving there at 6.30

We’re back to the Berry Maze for weeding, wiring, tying and hopefully munching some berries.

Please bring your own gloves, the tools are provided for us. There may be cake 🙂

Blitzing Brunswick Bindweed Bin Bag Brilliance

Tue 14 Sep 18:20 pm
Queen Square, Bristol, BS1 4LH
The Cemetery will be much tidier heading into autumn

It's Tuesday so it's a group run, meeting in (and returning to) Queen Square and leaving there at 6.30

We're heading back to the bindweed-bound cemetery to see how many bin-bags we can fill with bindweed so it starts next spring in a much more healthy state.

Gloves are good, it's a needle area so we're always wanting to check each area visually before putting our hands anywhere near it. If you have hand tools, it'd be great to bring them, too - I'll update with whether I'll be driving and can therefore put tools into the car (not so green but it'll enable us to make the Cemetery less bindweed-green).

I'm still hoping to get another weekend-day session in so we can picnic afterwards, in daylight, to celebrate our work :-)

GG Eats at Three Brothers Burgers

Tue 5 Oct 20:10 pm
Three Brothers Burgers, Bristol, BS1 4SB
Yummy burgers and time with your GG friends

GoodGym Eats are Back!

Pre-pandemic times at GoodGym Bristol we used to go out for a meal together after GoodGym on the first Tuesday of the month. We're going to get back to this. It's a great chance to have a proper chat with other GoodGymmers whether you are new or a regular and hopefully have some tasty food.

I have currently booked the table for 20 people but I'm sure I can expand this if there are more people interested.

Three Brothers Burgers is very close to Queen Square. They have lots of tasty burgers with veggie/vegan options. Here’s the menu. Hope to see you there!

(We each pay for what we ate/drank rather than splitting the bill so you can keep it cheap/push the boat out (not literally, please) as suits your hunger and bank balance)
