Man-ure farm is great!

Sat 25 Jul
Report written by Tav

As lockdown and Coronavirus hit the UK one of our last tasks we did was to plant trees along a fence border of Dedham Therapy farm. Circumstances dictated that we could not come back and admire our work until now but it was worth the wait. The trees are doing well, and in a similar way to when we see the flowers around Colchester from Colchester in Bloom, there is a sense of pride and satisfaction.

We were met by Katie who gave Ian and Vanessa the list of jobs and ensured all of the COVID-19 precautions were known and adhered to.

Our tasks included weeding a delightful plot and spreading manure ready for a new crop or bloom to flourish...one of the residents commented “cockadoodle-do-do” which nicely summed up the efforts made.

Additionally, there were plenty of nettles in the paddocks which needed to be removed and the Shetland Pony seemed pleased about that when he discovered the fresh grass hidden underneath the clearings!

I was stationed with Detti and we were amused by the 3 billy goats gruff. The smallest one had the largest horns and a deep bleet and the tallest goat had a high pitched bleet not befitting her stature!

Although the animals were more interested in there brunch than us, I am sure they appreciated having a few less weeds and nettles. And the clients of the farm will hopefully be able to spend some quality time with them as a result.

Never have we had such fun shovelling and wheelbarrowing poop!

Big thanks to Megan and Katie and the other volunteers who helped us with our questions!

Courage, above all things, is the first quality of a litter warrior.

Wed 15 Jan
Report written by Ella Jeffries

Was the wind and and rain of Storm Brendan that inspired us to be a whirlwind of warriors waging war on waste? Although the storm had passed and it was a crisp and cold evening, seventeen fresh faces came out to do good and be awesome. I love seeing you all but also love meeting new members, inspired to try our unique and purposeful way of helping ourselves and others. [Rosy]Rosalind was full of enthusiasm and ran with a spring in her step and Claire got her documents checked and set a date in her diary for the 29th when we will walk and run to the Colchester Foodbank.

We started off the evening with a sharp warm up in a big circle before scouting for litter on the way to do a team fitness relay. Each team completed four 3/4 pace or above sprints with impressive commitment.

Then it was time to ceremoniously hand out the new gear! Bob, our litter picking superman, was presented with a litter picker that he can call his own and we went to work. We cleared the path around Leisure World, being careful not to fall in the ditch, as well as the skate-park, gathering a decent but not huge amount of litter - which is a good thing as there was less than anticipated.

Colchester Borough Council (David Carter) had sorted Goodgym Colchester out with shiny new litter pickers, hoops and Hi-Vis Litter Warrior jackets. Thank you!

Coming up on Saturday after Colchester Castle Parkrun is a starter session. Here are the details and it would be lovely to see you all to help encourage and inspire new members. If you are reading this and have never been to Goodgym, come say hi and enjoy the park and litter pick and do parkrun. Ella and I will be volunteering handing out tokens at the finish line.

Over and out. Have a productive and fulfilling time and see you soon.
