Picking up on Britwell

Mon 2 Aug
Report written by Manjit Birk

So tonight should have been our first task helping a local church in Britwell. We were raring to go having met up in Kennedy Park but sadly the task owner was not around to let us in. We hope all is well with him and will check up on him in the morning.

Grab an opportunity

Most people have maybe a jerry can in their boot or shopping bags, mine has a Royal Mail sack full of litter pickers on the off chance that a task falls through just like tonight.

So with our backup plan in place, we decided to crack on with the fitness.

Core blimey my legs burn

After a 'follow the leader' and 'category' games for warm up we did some leg strengthening work and a trio core set!

And because that wasn't enough 4 rounds of hill reps were the order of the day before the real fun began.

Shall we go for a drink?

Never surprises us that beer cans are the order of the day in every park we litter pick!

There is something theraputic about litter picking

Said Eva, on her first litter pick task with us.

We actually had a lovely time chatting and clearing rubbish in a new end of town.

Thank you to everyone who came along today.

Next week we are back at the allotment on Stoke Rd on Monday, meeting up on Shaggy Calf Lane and walking /running down to the task.

Gardening at the Church

Mon 2 Aug 18:15 pm
Kennedy Park, Long Furlong Drive, Slough, SL2 2PQ
Improve the environment

This will be our first task at The Church Of God Of Prophecy over in Britwell for Pastor Cecil.

Pastor Cecil has asked for some support in maintaining the Church grounds. There will be some mowing, weeding and general shrubbery work to do.

We will meet at Kennedy Park in Britwell, which has a public car park just near the parade of shops. As the task venue is a very short distance away (less than 1km), we will do some speed work in the park before we head out to the Church.

Please bring your own gardening gloves.

As per our Covid guidelines we will run/walk in smaller groups.

Colour Instinct

Mon 12 Jul
Report written by Manjit Birk

We had a return visit to a lovely primary school this evening, with the task of painting a wendy house.

Knowing we would need gloves Eva turned up with her farming gloves which took over her whole body - we kept her at arm's length tonight!

With three vibrant colours to choose from, we split up into 2 teams of 2 and a lone ranger.

Sara with her painting knowledge and skills was given the intricate task of the orange paint (yellow to Eva) for the window frames.

Pam and Eva were green with envy when they saw how Royalist Blue Jessica and I were!

A few minor mishaps never hurt anyone except Sara... whose line of the night was...

Perfection takes time

She's not wrong there...we did also get a ticking off for being a bit heavy handed on the amount of paint on the brushes... but hey ho... we know we are always in good art with Sara... she's got skills... plus it was her birthday!

Great task which will require a repeat visit soon... we told Alpita, our task owner... no problem!

We are available wendy four seven!

Cabbage patch kids

Mon 28 Jun
Report written by Manjit Birk

This was a day of firsts

  • First time helping out Ace Preschool

  • First task for Jessica

  • First non fitness session for Alison

It was Eva who introduced us to Charmaine from Ace Preschool a few weeks ago, so it was lovely to have a task owner (Eva), find us a task and then join GoodGym and come along to her second task!

On arrival, Charmaine gave us the brief after telling us she thought we looked like The Calender Girls (I jumped at being Miss December!!)

The kiddies garden was delightful, with its little potted plants, strawberries and flowers.

Jessica on her initiation task cracked on in true GoodGym spirit by turning over her patch.

Pam, Alison and Gauri had a few patches between them that they unearthed, turned over and made look brand new!!

Sandy and I had the main section on the left that Charmaine wanted a wave effect on. We gave it our best creative efforts until Kam came and showed us how its done!

Eva had the best patch! She was Mrs Clippy with the clippers clip clip clipping away giving the hedge a well needed haircut! She did such a great job she actually managed to hide in it!

Great little task for a bit of Monday motivation.
