Feeling skipper!

Sat 15 May
Report written by Liz Pharoah

Wow. What a task. Today, 6 members of GoodGym Coventry supported a small working party from Hearsall Academy to help clear the roof garden ready for creating a memorial garden.

Within 3 hours, all the soil and rubbish was in the skip. Many floors were climbed and many bags of soil were moved.

Many thanks for the hospitality From Hearsall Academy! We will look forward to supporting you again.

Supporting Team Springboard at their allotment

Sat 3 Jul 13:00 pm
Lakeview Allotments, Allesley Old Road, Coventry, CV5 8GG
Help Team Springboard provide support to young people

Team Springboard offer training, work experience and volunteering opportunities in practical horticulture. They believe that working outside in a natural environment helps to reduce social isolation and improves wellbeing. It also provides the opportunity to learn new skills.

We have visited their allotment before and will be supporting the team with their plans to move areas around, gravity fed irrigation, raspberries, planting asparagus etc.

Please ensure you have gloves with you.

Clearing the Roof garden at Hearsall Community Primary

Sat 15 May 10:00 am
Hearsall Community School, Kingston Road,, Coventry, CV5 6LR
Create a memorial garden for the school

Pass the smile and Hearsall Academy are developing a roof garden as a memorial garden. It needs a lot of TLC and things taking up to and down from the roof.

It will be quite a physical task.

Although listed for 9-2, this may be subject to change and it is possible to turn up to a selection within this time e.g. 10-12. Just post in the comments below.

Sun 2 May
Report written by Debora Stewart

Four runners made their way to memorial park for a litter pick with The Friends of Memorial Park. Fortunately there wasn't too much this morning. There was a fair in the park, and the organisers make sure that area is free from litter. it was a beautiful morning to be out in the park and we got lots of appreciative comments from members of the public

Springing into action

Sat 1 May
Report written by Lilian

This Saturday, Coventry goodgym once again paid a visit to Springboard’s Lakeview allotment site. We managed to dodge the showers and dark clouds and complete lots of tasks.

Hedges were tidied up, strawberries saved and moved out of a bed, an area of land was cleared for a new water store and tasks in the potting shed were completed.

It was a lovely afternoon, filled with fun, chatter and activity. It’s a pleasure to spend an afternoon in such a city oasis; filled with nature and friends.

We will be back again next month to continue supporting the allotment.

There's a hole in my bag, dear Liz!

Tue 27 Apr
Report written by Liz Pharoah

On a lovely but typically slightly rainy Tuesday evening, 7 GoodGym Coventry runners headed out along the River Sherbourne to support Warwickshire Wildlife Trust's River Sherbourne Valley Living Landscapes.

There was quite a lot of litter along the paths and banks. 4 bags were collected but unfortunately 1 by 1 all of these proved to be weak and holes 🕳 appeared in the bases. Luckily, litter bins were closed by so we headed back to the common and tidied a bit there too.

We completed our session with a 4km run too and a good stretch. All socially distanced.So lovely to be back running and doing good in groups.

Plen-tie of wood and ways to help

Sat 24 Apr
Report written by Liz Pharoah

On a beautiful Saturday morning, 6 Goodgym Coventry members met at the 24th Scouts Allotments.

Our tasks today's weren't cover beds, turn soil and move wood.

Smaller beds were covered by Vic and Graeme after the hoops had been sawn.

The larger bed needed a mesh over the metal construction. Many hands -and cable ties- made light work and Damian, Jackie, Katherine and Liz finished this.

The new potato beds were turned and many logs were relocated.

Another lovely task completed.
