Help Cycle Hub move premises

Mon 4 Oct 11:00 am
Cycle Hub workshop, Bell Street, next to Maidenhead Advertiser Office, Maidenhead, SL6 1HX
Lunchbreak session to help this wheely great local charity (timing flexible!)

Maidenhead Cycle Hub is a local charity, passionate about cycling and the benefits it brings to individuals, communities and the environment. They aim to get more people cycling by providing servicing and repairs, organised rides, advice on bike routes and cycling safety, as well as selling refurbished bikes.

Join a small group for our first project with this wheely great local charity - helping them move their workshop to new premises. The task will involve shifting lots of bikes, furniture and other equipment up a spiral staircase. Sounds like a great workout!

The session is listed from 11am-2pm, but the expectation is that GoodGymers might only be able to stay for part of the time. Stop by on your lunchbreak for however long suits you, and no doubt we will still be able to make a big difference.

Planting oak trees at New Thrift Wood

Sat 11 Dec 10:30 am
Ockwells Park, Maidenhead, SL6 3YX
Help grow the mighty oaks of the future

Remember back in Summer 2020, when GoodGym helped harvest loads of acorns from the beautiful old oaks in Ockwells Park? Well, Alistair, who works with the RBWM countryside team, took those acorns home and gave them lots of love and now he has 150 plucky little oak saplings ready to return to Ockwells.

The plan for this session is to meet in the Ockwells car park at 10.30am. If it is your first GoodGym session, look out for friendly faces and red GoodGym t-shirts. We will then walk together approximately 1km to the New Thrift Wood site. Conditions may be wet, boggy and uneven underfoot, so you might want to wear boots rather than trainers.

We will meet Alistair at the planting site and he will set us up with the tools and skills we'll need to launch the oak saplings in their new home. Alistair has become rather fond of his green babies, so we won't just be chucking them in the ground. They will get the full star treatment with mulch and guards to protect them from animals and weeds.

The long-term aim is for New Thrift Wood to fill a gap between Ockwells' existing Thrift Wood and the similarly ancient and bio-diverse woodland owned by the neighbouring turf farmers. This swathe of woodland will create a great haven for flora and fauna, as well as helping fight the battle against climate change. We are unlikely to see the site mature within our lifetimes, but we hope it will be appreciated by future generations... and in the meantime we'll certainly enjoy a social morning of planting and soaking up nature!

We expect to be back in the car park by 1pm, but if you know your way around the park and need to leave sooner then you may do so.

The pick of the litter

Wed 22 Sep
Report written by Amy Lovell

Well done to Georgeta, Sophie, Nicola and Juli, who joined me for this evening's group run and litter pick.

We met up at the Town Hall and started the evening with a warm up jog and some dynamic stretches around the amphi-theatre. Then we headed off for our run, a 4km loop out into the lovely Braywick Nature Reserve and then back into town just as we lost the light. We then collected our litter picking kit from my car and hit the town.

We focussed on the High Street, St Ives Road, the Amphitheatre, Providence Place and West Street. This was a bit of an experiment to see whether the town centre was in need of more TLC from GoodGym and we are pleased to report that the High Street was pretty clean. We did find that a few people had abandoned their takeaways at the Amphitheatre though, and there was also lots of rubbish along West Street, where some of the high street shops have their loading bays and bins.

At the end we attracted some funny looks while we did our stretches, then bundled everything we had collected into 1 big bag, which I took home to put in my bin.

Well done on another great effort team!

Look after the water table and giant duck!

Sat 25 Sep 12:00 pm
Amphitheatre next to Maidenhead Library, St Ives Rd, Maidenhead , SL6 1QU
Help out at the Maidenhead Waterways Family Fun Day

Friends of Maidenhead Waterways have been busy planning a family fun day to celebrate the opening of Maidenhead Waterways all the way from Town Moor to Green Lane Weir. They have asked for GoodGym's help with managing a table mounted water game, which shows how locks work. Apparently children love playing with this water table, so chances are we're going to love it too. We will also have the responsibility of looking after a giant duck! This festival is a great opportunity for us to wear our GoodGym t-shirts in town and to tell lots of people about all the awesome things GoodGym does. There are 2 listings for this - 9.50am-12pm and 12pm-2.10pm. Please sign up here if you want the later shift.

Note parking permits are available for stall holders. Please email amylovell@goodgym.org if you need more details.

Even if you don't sign up for the listing, do spread the word and bring your friends and family along to join in the fun!
