When the chips are down...

Thu 10 Jun
Report written by Amy Lovell

When the chips are down...put some more down! That may not be how the saying normally goes, but it worked for us at Sutherland Grange today. Being on the floodplain, the paths in this lovely RBWM-managed nature reserve can get very muddy. Today was our second session helping to layer wood chip over a particular stretch of path to help keep it accessible when wetter weather comes. It was great to see our task owner Jason again and he kindly got stuck into the task alongside us.

Today's weather was sunny and muggy, so it was hot work shoveling wood chip into wheelbarrows and ferrying it along the path, but it was very satisfying seeing our progress barrow by barrow and metre by metre and we weren't too hot to enjoy easy conversation about who had lived where and good books for 6 year olds...

A few special mentions are in order for today. Firstly happy birthday to Amanda! We were honoured that you chose to spend part of your special day with GoodGym. Hopefully after shovelling wood chip with us you moved on to shovelling cake!

Secondly a very warm welcome to Jennie and Tessa, who both came to their first GoodGym session today. It was great to see you and we hope you enjoyed yourselves...in spades!

Finally Zen garden master Juli...we knew you were good at gardening, but your prowess with the rake was second to none! Stationed at the path end of the operation, Juli raked the woodchip into such a lovely smooth path she had Jason swooning. Thank you also for joining me for a run afterwards.

Great work everyone!

A Birch-jets Green(ery) School run

Wed 9 Jun
Report written by Nicola

The sun setting through the trees made a lovely backdrop for six GoodGym helpers tackling a range of tasks around the grounds of Burchetts Green School. Juli planted birch trees while Jordan set to work on the greenery around the front gates. Amy, Hannah and Nicola pulled up weeds around the car park, and Sophie jet washed the climbing frame until it was so spotless we were scared to pose for our group photo on it in case we made it dirty again! Afterwards, Amy, Juli and Sophie headed off for a run to make the most of another sunny evening.

Gardening at the Royal School

Tue 29 Jun 18:45 pm
Bishopsgate Road, Englefield Green, Egham, TW20 0XY
Help maintain the outdoor space at this little school in the Great Park

For those of you new to Group Runs, this is a bit like a community mission (where we do Good) but with a bit more Gym thrown in. We all travel to and from the task on foot together and we will try to squeeze in a fun fitness session along the way too.

This evening's session is happening inside the beautiful Great Park, which will be a real treat!

The session will include the following:

  1. Meet at Bishopsgate for a briefing and a quick warm up (free parking is available on the roadside near the park entrance).

  2. Run or walk the 1.5km through the beautiful Great Park to reach the school. All paces are welcome and we will make sure no one gets left behind.

  3. Help out with some gardening and outdoor maintenance at the school.

  4. We all head back to Bishopsgate running and/or walking for a quick stretch and say our goodbyes. Along the way we hope to squeeze in a mini workout too. This will be suitable for all fitness levels.

The school was set up in 1843 by her majesty Queen Victoria, and with its links to the crown you might be wondering whether we will be stealing work away from the Royal Gardeners. Worry not, the school is funded by RBWM rather than the Royal Estate, and with only 100 pupils it doesn't command a large budget. Despite their stunning location, the school relies heavily on volunteers to upkeep their historical site.

Don't forget your gardening gloves!
