best seat in the gorge!

Sat 15 May
Report written by Bristol runner

Eight GoodGym runner braced themselves to endure torrential rainfalls and heavy winds on their mission to clear the Avon Gorge from litter. To our surprise, the rain held off while we were out searching the riverbanks for discarded goods. This time, Mark from SAS brought his wheelbarrow along which was a total game changer when it came to carrying the heavy rubbish bags the 1km stretch back into town. Instead of everyone having to struggle with tired arms and aching shoulders, only Russ who volunteered to push the heavy load long the path had to suffer this time. Sadly, nobody wanted to rehome the nice plactic chair I found but maybe someone else will pick it up and use to for some sunbathing on the riverbanks.

Thanks everyone of helping out and kudos to Jason who offered to sort out the pick up of our rubbish collection.

Chipping in: flaking and painting

Thu 6 May
Report written by Richard Breakspear

A sunny evening helping the Friends of Eastville Park with prepping the old bowls buildings ready for the community cafe in 10 days time.

Laura and Liana helped to clear off the old peeling paint from the deco bowling pavilion ready for its new paint.

Jason tidied up a lot of overgrown weedy path edges.

Richard G cast his expert eye over a vat of bituminous paint and dabbed out some gaps/over-painting on the Nissan hut’s lovely new green paint coat.

Meanwhile Richard B hung out a-top a tall ladder with a small hammer, woodpeckering off the last of the aging paint/render to get it ready for a new coat of masonry paint.

Together we made a difference.

More next time, lots to do to get it all ready for community cake and coffee on the 15th!
