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.

Chipping away at the Little Thrift Wood task

Tue 8 Jun
Report written by Amy Lovell

This evening's community mission ticked all the boxes for the perfect evening out with GoodGym:

✅ Stunning sunny weather.

✅ Lovely company including friends old and new, and a sea of red t-shirts (plus 1 black - well earned Jess!)

✅ Beautiful setting in ancient woodland.

✅ Pre-task social 5km run for some of us through the beautiful countryside surrounding Ockwells Park.

✅ A short walk for all of us from the car park through the aforementioned beautiful countryside to the task.

✅ A great task owner in Jason Mills, the RBWM Countryside Manager. We always learn something new about nature and our local parks and nature reserves when we see Jason. Plus, he has an excellent collection of wheelbarrow and spades!

✅ A task that gave us a great workout and made us feel like superheroes: we used spades to heap woodchip into wheelbarrows, which we then wheeled (quite a long way and at pace!) down the path, delivering the woodchip to Jason, who then raked it out.

✅ Moments to catch your breath and chat in between the shovelling and wheelbarrow ferrying (aka interval training)

✅ Knowing that even though there is still a lot of woodchip to shift, every bit we moved this evening will help protect biodiversity in this precious place. The woodchip reinforces the designated path in the woods, discouraging people from trampling delicate wildflowers away from the path and helping to prevent the compaction of the loose, rich soil that these flowers need in order to grow.

✅ The opportunity to check out Jason's lovely new sign, designed to educate people about the path and the significance of this woodland.

✅ Bizarre find: Vikki found what we think was a duck egg amongst the woodchip! Perhaps hidden there by a squirrel? Or the Easter bunny...

✅ Roe deer spotted! By Sheila on her bike ride out of the park. It just stood in the middle of the track watching her. Wonderful!

✅ Ace photographer Kelley brought her posh camera along, promising awesome photos for the report (soon to be uploaded so watch this space!)

We hope to return in the near future for more of the same, so keep an eye on the happenings page for more sessions.

Slow and steady wins the vaccine race!

Sun 6 Jun
Report written by Jess Smith

Jess, Sani and Rich spent the afternoon at the vaccine clinic in Maidenhead. Rich was firstly tasked with directing patients to the nurses and then got to enjoy some sunshine welcoming them into the centre. Sani and Jess were paired together and firstly were checking the patients in on the computer and handing out the information leaflets. The second part of the clinic saw them wiping chairs and dishing out hand sanitizer as the grateful patients made their way back out into the sun! It was a slow affair with just 351 patients coming through. This left plenty of time for catching up, some dancing and of course a tea break!!
