Allot-a tasks to lettuce us get stuck into!

Wed 16 Jun
Report written by Jess Smith

5 Goodgymmers met on another lovely summers evening to help out at the Maidenhead Community Allotment.

It is always a treat to return to the site of Maidenhead and Windsor Goodgym's first ever community mission, and tonight was no exception. There was a list of mini tasks to get stuck into so to get cracking everyone picked a number and were allocated the associated task!

  1. Hannah got the whiffy job of filling the new raised bed with horse manure and then mixing in some top soil to make it ready for more plants to go into the amazing space.

  2. Ange 's tasks was to empty the new water butt, move it to its new location at the back of the shed and then set up the hose to fill the water butt up!

  3. Jess was gifted the awkward task of covering the new wooden frame over one the raised beds with netting to stop the birds getting to the lettuce. Ange also came to help whilst the butt was filling. It was fiddly task as the netting had to be secured to the frame with wool to stop it from coming loose.

  4. Nicola took on the weeding of the areas around the fruit bushes (planted by Goodgym on a previous task), there were lots to be cleared and she ended up with a mountain of weeds to be added to the compost heap. Georgetta also got in on this act and helped give the bushes some space to breathe.

  5. Before helping with the weeding Georgetta fixed some wood edging along the side of the long bed, she did an excellent job and it looks really smart!

  6. Finally a trip to the allotment would not be complete with a bit of watering, with the dry weather it was important to give them a little drink, and hopefully some rain over the next few days will help too.

All the runners were impressed with the changes and the progress at the allotment and agreed it was always a pleasure to help out here. Look out for more tasks at this location!

Special mention also goes to Nicola as this was her 10th Good Deed! Yay!!!

Weeding and painting for All Saints Church in Maidenhead

Wed 30 Jun 18:45 pm
Oaken Grove Park - the bit closest to Courthouse Road, Courthouse Road, Maidenhead, SL6 6HY

Please note that this group run has been cancelled.

Help tidy up the church grounds

For those of you who have never been on a group run before, this is like a community mission, but with more fitness thrown in and more opportunity to be sociable. Instead of making our own way to the task, we meet beforehand, and travel to or from the task on foot. This is how GoodGym always used to operate before the pandemic, so it is exciting to be able to do this again!

Tell me more...

  1. We meet at Oaken Grove Park at 6.45pm, welcome everyone and be briefly briefed on what lies ahead.

  2. We use our legs to get to the task location. Walkers will walk straight down All Saints Avenue. Runners will take a slightly more circuitous route of 2-3km. All paces are welcome and both the walking and running groups will have a back marker to ensure no one gets left behind.

  3. We congregate at All Saints Church on Boyn Hill Road and get busy with some weeding in the quadrangle and painting of skirting boards. Many hands make light work and there is lots to do, so encourage your friends to sign up too!

  4. Enjoy a short, fun, fitness session. All fitness levels are welcome.

  5. Head back to Oaken Grove walking or running to have a little stretch and say our goodbyes. We aim to finish by 8.30pm.

Can't wait to see you there!

Note that despite what it may say elsewhere on the listing, the start location does not have toilets, changing rooms or lockers. Please come ready to go.

A Birch-jets Green(ery) School run

Wed 9 Jun
Report written by Nicola

The sun setting through the trees made a lovely backdrop for six GoodGym helpers tackling a range of tasks around the grounds of Burchetts Green School. Juli planted birch trees while Jordan set to work on the greenery around the front gates. Amy, Hannah and Nicola pulled up weeds around the car park, and Sophie jet washed the climbing frame until it was so spotless we were scared to pose for our group photo on it in case we made it dirty again! Afterwards, Amy, Juli and Sophie headed off for a run to make the most of another sunny evening.

A sup-herb mission

Tue 1 Jun
Report written by Tara Isherwood

11 goodgymers met to complete our good seed for the day. For one more thyme we split into team garden and team paint. Team garden were Anna, Ana, Kelley, Nicola and Hannah. This was Annas first mission, and she joined the others in making good of the garden. Michelle, Jess, Diya, Kanika, Sara and Tara carried on painting the ship. Diya climbed the rigging and Jess walked the plank. Our host Tricia made everyone a well earned hot drink to keep us going. A lovely evening for getting out and doing our good deeds!

Another great month of GoodGym Running Tag

Mon 31 May
Report written by Amy Lovell

We loved playing tag in April so much that we carried on in May. Such a fun game that helped us discover new places, made us look at sights and landmarks on our runs a bit differently, and definitely got me out running a few times when I wouldn't otherwise have bothered. Special mention to Juli Wood, who achieved more tags than any other runner - fantastic effort!

Helping at the Maidenhead Community Allotment

Wed 16 Jun 19:00 pm
Boyn Grove Community and Resource Centre, 11 Courthouse Road, Maidenhead, SL6 6JE
Support your local community veggie plot

Stop by the Maidenhead Community Allotment on your run to help this wonderful local resource thrive. Weeding, digging, watering, litter picking in the park and maybe even munching on a bit of kale - there's always plenty to do.

If the group are keen, the neighbouring park also lends itself very nicely to some hill training!

Gardening gloves are a must and a head torch is recommended.

The allotment is at the North East end of the Library and Resource Centre building. If you are standing at the end closest to where the playground is, head past the library to the other end and you'll see the allotment.
