Report written by Jade Cahill

Nine GoodGymers met on a chilly Friday morning. Today’s task consisted of weeding and sweeping leaves around the front and back of the farm. Was lovely seeing everyone today whilst doing some good.

The Magnificent Seven returned to St Werburgh's Park Nursery School for the first time in a little while. Leaves were cleared, paths tidied and tunnels explored. The sun put in fleeting appearances and we will return here again soon 😁

Help deliver leaflets to spread the work about an awesome community garden!

Sat 12 Feb 10:30 am
Hillfields Park, Thicket Ave, Bristol , BS16 4EH
Help a fantastic resource reach more people

Come and help me deliver leaflets around Hillfields about a fantastic community garden.

The park is 1.8 miles from Eastville park so the perfect way to get in a good deed after parkrun. You could even make it a double deed day by then heading over to the Bedminster lantern parade task.

Many people haven't heard of the Hillfields community garden and delivering leaflets will help the group reach more marginalised groups. They are keen to reach the isolated people in Hillfields and this leaflet drop will help them to do that. The leaflet contains the details for a survey, this survey will help them shape the plans for the garden. They want to encourage the local community to feel involved and take ownership over this shared space.

frosted fun at the farm

Fri 14 Jan
Report written by Bristol runner

On this frosty Friday morning, we did our best to stay warm whilst chipping away on some weeds, return gravel stones to the gravel pit and collect the last stray leaves. All under the watchful eyes of the goats and sheep which were hoping to get their breakfast served by us. That task is still to be added to our list of responsibilities... great job everyone!

Emmaus-ing maneouvres in the dark - 25 Jan

Tue 25 Jan 18:20 pm
Queen Square, Bristol, BS1 4LH
Somewhere will be tidier/cleaner/better publicised/painted

It's Tuesday so it's a group run, meeting in (and returning to) Queen Square and leaving there at 6.30

Whoop! We're back to see our very good friend Xanne at Emmaus's magic Tardis warehouse to do whatever needs doing - constructing, destructing, puzzling, cleaning and mainly wearing anything possible as a hat.

This is indoors, but in a very well ventilated huge warehouse - the enormous roller shutter doors will be open so there will be a gale blowing through the warehouse. Please bring your mask as well as your gloves :-)

Changing facilities, lockers and loos are available at Workout Harbourside- bring your own padlock or inventive personal prized possession to swap for one of theirs if you want to lock your, er, locker. Otherwise it’s just an er. Make sure you’re back out in Queen Square for 6.20!

St Agnes anew

Tue 11 Jan
Report written by Melanie Young

It was another delightfully dry January night that greeted 15 GoodGymmers who set off on time to St Agnes Park, next to our beloved St Paul's Adventure Playground - we cant help them at the moment as the have support from Community PayBack on Tuesdays during the day :-(

The park was pretty tidy but there was bindweed to pull out and the surrounding streets and hedges to litter pick with our fresh supply of Bristol Waste bags.

Having identified the lamppost Melanie may just have side-swiped in her truck in her early days with Bristol Parks, we spread out far and wide. Headtorches were bobbing all over the place!

We soon had things much more ship-shape (like the playground) and were able to tie off the bags for collection and run back in the same Richard sandwich as the run over - Richard B run leading and Richard G back-marking in expert style.

Stretching and chatting back at Queens Square and post-run drinks enjoyed at Workout for those not allergic to latex!
