A Mild Manored evening

Tue 19 Oct
Report written by Tara Shanahan

On an unseasonably mild October evening 8 Goodgymmers made their way to Manor Paddock, a Senior's Housing Scheme with a charming garden.

Resident Luc set us to work on a variety of tasks including lopping lavender, pruning budleia (go hard!), clearing beds and digging in lime to stop the soil being so alkaline. For the first time this autumn we had an outside task entirely in the dark but there was plenty of ambient light from the building and the bat light made it's AW21 debut.

As always Luc was very impressed with how much we got done and no doubt we will be back again soon.

A quick partnered workout of 2 minute rounds of squats and everybody's favourite, burpees rounded off a mellow autumn evening, before we parted company having once again made the world a little bit better and ourselves a little bit fitter!

to look after a communal garden

In the depths of last winter helped top gardener Kim clear a bank of grass to prepare for the planting of a wildflower meadow.

The meadow was a great success and looked wonderful all summer but now it has died down and needs to be cut back.

Ingram Cresent Garden is a wonderful project and well worth a visit if you haven't been before.

Meet at seafront side of King Alfred at 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start.

Raking the Rough with the Smooth

Tue 21 Sep
Report written by David Richards

Palmeira Square. Our mission, if we chose to accept it, was to edge the footpath to hell and back. A tough decision but 12 of us accepted and having met at the Peace Statue we made our way to said square, picked up bags, tools and receptacles with the intention of cracking on with it.

We had no intention of edging our bets so armed with hoes in the main we set to work. At this point there might be the sound of the needle on a record scratching across the surface and coming to an end as for some reason a lot of us found it a lot harder than imagined. However, with sheer arm power, a couple of pairs of loppers and the odd spade to add to the hoes we actually made good progress and filled around 6 big blue sacks.

Having finished a slightly frustrating but ultimately rewarding task, Tara then put some of us through our paces as we paired up for a fitness session as darkness enveloped us. This writer actually quite enjoyed it...a rare thing!!!
