Fancy a Sunday morning workout for your biceps? This task at the lovely Bramble Hill Farm might be just the right thing for you. We will be digging a new wildlife pond and water access points. Please bring gloves and maybe wear your second best trainers on this task as it might get a bit muddy.
The pigs and sheep will probably also demand some of our attention which should allow us to take some breaks from digging.
The farm might be a bit tricky to find if you have not been there before. Use these the what3words link to find the location: https://w3w.co/photos.margin.dive

Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!
Bekki just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Bekki a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.
Six GoodGymers met on a chilly Wednesday morning at WindMill Hill City Farm.
We spent the morning breaking up and spreading out the manure in middle paddock.
Was a lovely morning and great to see everyone whilst doing some good. Great work guys :)
Are you finding it hard to motivate yourself in the morning? Come and join us for a midweek morning dose of goodness at Windmill Hill City Farm. Early morning, fresh air, walking/running/cycling (or however else you travel), volunteering, animals (and people, if you like them - socially distanced of course) - what a great way to start your day!
Tasks may include, but are not limited to, weeding, sweeping, petting goats (optional), loading and maneuvering wheelbarrows (bring your own gardening gloves if you have them, they are very useful to have for this task and any other tasks)
Hope to see you there :)
It was another gorgeous Saturday morning when 9 GoodGym runners met by the Avon to pick litter along the river banks. Mark from Surfers Against Sewage instructed us what to look out for and how to safely move along the banks to avoid a cold dip into the river. Some of us were already quite familiar with the task while for others, like our newest GoodGym recruit Laura, this was their first time litter hunting. Everyone seemed to be "picking it up" in no time as we scanned the grass for discarded items whilst discussing the basic recycling rules, debating appropriate footwear, and pointing out some dubious findings.
A big thank you to Mark for organising this task for us and to the runners on the Portway who cheered us on. We had so much fun that we decided to do this again next week but on the opposite of the river.
Great job everyone!
