Swinging in the rain

Sat 8 May
Report written by Phill Stone

This week we saw 10 brave faces clad themselves up in waterproofs for a drizzly trip to the Northern slopes.

Back from a long respite, Goodgym legend Paul returned to the fold to donate his birthday morning to the cause, joining Matt with bramble lopping on the east side. Mirroring their efforts on the west side, we had Nathalie and Julie lop up the pathways from the encroaching bushes.

We had a couple of fresh faces join us too, as Alex and Abigail got stuck right in with the very important task of keeping on top of our previous clearing in the center.

Down at the bottom Sarah, Nathaniel and I swung our scythes around against the overgrowth, whilst Katie loped out a lovely little cove for herself. We're getting closer and closer to opening up the whole patch for wildflowers, and soon the brambles will be but a distant memory!

Thanks all for coming along despite the weather, and extra special thanks to the birthday boy! Have a good one mate!

Tidying up Northern Slopes

Sat 8 May 09:30 am
Novers Steps, Northern Slopes, Bristol, BS3 5LN
Improve a local green space

Update on tomorrow's task. There's a high chance of rain tomorrow but the organiser would still like to give it a go if enough people are interested (bring waterproofs!!!)

Come and join us at Northern Slopes at 9:30 to make the area look more tidy by addressing the regrown, defining the paths, clearing space for more trees as well as some litter-picking in the area.

We will be meeting at the top of Novers Steps. Look up manage.stones.burst on what3words.com to see the exact location.

Please bring your own gloves. Tools will be provided. As some parts of this task involve thick bramble bushes, please consider adequate clothing.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Friday Farm Frolics

Fri 7 May 08:00 am
Windmill Hill City Farm, Philip Street, Bedminster , Bristol , BS3 4EA
Helping a local community farm

Are you finding it hard to motivate yourself in the morning? Come and join us for a end of the week morning dose of goodness at Windmill Hill City Farm.

Early morning, fresh air, walking/running/cycling (or however else you travel), volunteering, animals (and people, if you like them - socially distanced of course) - what a great way to start your day!

The farm is planning to lay a new gravel path along their animal paddocks so we will scrape off the old surface material and prepare the paths for their make-over. Expect a decent workout for our arms and upper body ;)

A Triumph-ant victory against the overgrowth

Sat 24 Apr
Report written by Phill Stone

This Saturday we returned to the slopes for another whack n' slash at the overgrowth, and a few other odd jobs to reclaim the land in the name of nature.

Dave and Matt did a great job with the top pathways, whilst Russ, Katie, and Jason sliced and diced their way through an incredible amount of brambles on the south section.

David and I went on a venture deep into the woods to pull out a rusty motorbike carcass, and as a bonus we spotted a TV and hauled that away too.

Thanks for coming everyone! Top work! Next time we might be doing some work on making a nice new path so watch out for the listing coming soon.

Swept up and marooned by a flood of gooddooers

Tue 13 Apr
Report written by Phill Stone

This week we returned to the Southville centre to continue our work brightening up the garden and play area. A lot of the features in the play zone need a lick of reddish-brown paint to keep them protected from another year of British weather.

Sarah and I tackled the stairs leading up into the garden section, whilst our secret agent Russ infiltrated the sweeping Community Mission, and brought the crew over to give the playground a bonus sweep.

Katie and Nathaniel teamed up to paint the pillars at the entrance to the playground. With synergy and style, they managed to coat all the posts just in time to pack away.

A job well done and a happy Hugh!

Thanks for coming along everyone, look forward to seeing you again soon. :)
