Haying the best time at the new Hartcliffe city farm - its fun, its free, its your farm!

Sat 19 Mar
Report written by Bristol runner

We had an epic first mission at the new Hartcliffe city farm site. 18 Goodgymers turned out, of which 4 people were new to GoodGym. We mucked out a old barn, freeing it from layers of of hay sheep sh**. The manure was so ancient that it didn't even smell of animals anymore (or maybe my nose is to used to these kind of smells). Everyone dug in deep in best spirits and loaded as much muck as possible in the wheelbarrows. These had then to be pushed to the another end of the site, allowing us to not only workout our upper body strength but also get in a decent amount of steps. The second group cleared a field from rubbish, rubble and old palettes to make this area safe of little farm visitors. A few GoodGymers took on the task of constructing a new path (and bridge) leading into the green space. We got an impressive amount done during the mission and Ned from HCF can't wait to have us back next week. And back we will be for sure - the tea and biscuit provision was excellent! And all that fun was FREE so no excuse to not make this a regular outing.

Massive shout out to Ned, Sam and Amy for collecting their first ever GoodGym good deeds with this task.

Great job everyone !

Top tourist tasking

Tue 15 Mar
Report written by Melanie Young

Spring has sprung in Bristol and it was our first "not cold" group run of the year, welcomed in by over 20 GoodGymmers!

Dom joined us from Greenwich as he's relocated to a busier GoodGym (he mught have a new job, too) and David was visiting from Portugal and fitting in as many good deeds and parkruns as he can. Both already know the ropes so it was a sea of smiling GG faces that were soon running around Queen Square

We beat Hugh, the task owner, to the Southville Centre but it was open and we know the routine so we were ready to go as soon as he arrived, blanched at the sheer number of GoodGymmers and agreed that we'd split the task with s fitness session.

There was soon sweeping and painting and hill sprints and squats with a changeover at halftime. Except for Melanie who was lucky enough to demonstrate sumo squats four times.

With a picnic table sanded and painted, the wooden structures re-preserved and planters blackened, the sweeping were tidied and the whole place looked ready for another month's intensive use by BS3 Community whilst GoodGymmers disappeared back to stretch and chat at Queen Square and workout with even more smiles!

GoodGym is definitely back and finding its feet in a new normal.

Double Dave=Double trowel-ble

Report written by Tim

Four intrepid goodgymmers braved the gloriously sunny spring conditions to do some good at the berry maze. Extreme tourister, Dave flew in from Lisbon yesterday especially for this mornings task.

The team did some wall destruction, grass mowing, turf laying, edging and weeding between bulbs we've previously planted. A good time was had by all! At the end Barney gave a nice run-though of all the ways goodgym has helped out at the maze-not a short list!
