Bush Cutter Trial

Tue 9 Nov
Report written by Michael

14 goodgymers met tonight, in the misty dark evening for a lovely quick walk / jog / run to the Samye Foundation in Canton.

But First

Welcome Abbie89 to goodgym Cardiff, and for the second time welcome Ashley.

Good to have you back again Mike, it's been great to see all the coach visits going on with you, great to have you at a group task again too though.

Just a short 3km out and back tonight to Samye, but plenty to do whilst we are there. The dry wipe boards were out in force again already with the tasks at hand,

  • Sweeping up the leaves from around the building,
  • Cutting down the bushes at the back of the building,
  • Moving some bottle of drink from the storage area outside to inside,
  • Vacuuming, mopping the floors in the three buildings,
  • Cleaning down the windowsills,
  • Painting a gold stripe in the one of the rooms.

We separated into our groups as we decided who was doing which tasks and got to work. Michael had the lights ready in his Mary Poppins bag, so popped these up ready for the bush cutter trial. With everyone hard at work it was slightly more difficult to get the photos tonight but was a great opportunity to have a run around the building. The 30 minutes flew by and before we knew it the dinner bell was ringing, the wonderful Lorraine had made us soup, which on a night like this was very welcomed.

Weed For Speed!

Tue 6 Oct
Report written by Klara Kjellgren

9 GoodGymers did an amazing job helping Newtown Community Association with weeding, litter-picking and preparing a compost for autumn.

It felt like a proper autumn day with rain showers and strong winds blowing the leaves of the trees but we could not have had a nicer time than getting together to get fit whilst doing good!

The evening started with 6 of us meeting in Belmont Park for a fitness session. We ran laps in the park, with some fartlek, and did a circuit session so that we got a full body workout. Andy even got some reaction-training when a dog tried to get involved with his planking ha ha ha! Super good work everyone!

When the fitness session was completed we went over to the task location where we met the rest of the gang. We started with a safety briefing and an introduction, which included sharing what you LEAST favorite meal is (fry-up, rice-pudding, marmelade and cheese were some of the thing mentioned). It was brilliant to welcome Sam who is a experienced GoodGymer but new to Exeter. We hope you enjoyed the session and that we get to see you soon again!

Working at the task we had a lovely time chatting and catching up with each other and as usual we were amazed with how much we got done.

In one hour we:

  • Weeded 2 long alleyways
  • Emptied a compost bin
  • Cleared the area of litter
  • Filled up all pots with manure

Speed-weeding! Only the GoodGym can do that!

It was also lovely to have some local residents popping by to thank us for out work! Such a great evening all around!

I hope you all had good runs and bike rides home afterwards. It is getting very dark in the evenings so make sure you wear reflectives and head-torches for safety. Next week we are continuing with some more gardening tasks in Newtown and I hope to see you then! Have a great week!

In order to work safely, with social distancing at all times, following all current guidelines we will divide the group in two this evening.
