LIkes outdoors and beaches works on conservation on Poole heathlands and Brownsea.
Keith just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Keith a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.
This week the green space picked to be given a spring makeover was Kings Park.
After a day of cloudy sunshine and chilly winds, the time to get together slowly approached...along with the dark clouds and threat of icy rain! Typical!
Well, no icy rain fell from the skies, instead we were treated to snow!!
It didn’t deter us though. 12 of us got together and after a quick chat we split up into teams and started to comb through the park.
We welcomed Ellie to her first Bournemouth mission. She’s moved down from Leeds and has swept through the south coast with a wave of good deeds, sprinkling across Portsmouth, Southampton and Poole along the way!
We managed to coax Sean out of his hibernation, Sue had a close call on her way to meet us and Sam and John ran a combined 20km to come and hang out with us! Love it!!!
The teams collected 6 bags of rubbish in total. We found tea cups, skateboards and a little Chihuahua in a crate....(no no, he belonged to the travellers in the car park)
After about an hour and with different limbs threatening to go completely numb we called it a day and headed off in different directions.
Next week we go again! Come and join us!
The challenge for the end of January and start of Februrary was an epic 25 square bingo card...which was meant to keep us busy for a couple of weeks at least. And it did just that!!
Some tricky ones to tick off on there! But lots of different ones to tickle our fancy!
Lea and Keith managed to tick them all off, being challenged the most by the roads beginning with letters of the alpahabet.
Daryl and Caprice putting in a reapectable amount in and Caprice adding evidence pics to add to the colour of her entry!
Marianne clocked some serious miles and got creative with her Strava art too! And was one box ahy of hitting a full house...I think the judges are going to give you that one anyway!
Well done everyone! More to come next week!
This week we are starting on a Run Bingo challenge. It will probably last for longer than a week unless we have some die hard Bingo exercisers...
The aim is to get as many of the tasks ticked off the Bingo card that you can. Of course there are also points for completing lines and diagonals too.
However, the main aim is to tick off every single box on the card. If you are only able to tick off a couple of things or just a line etc, that is also fine. The main thing is to take part and get yourself outdoors safely for your daily exercise time.
Here’s the link to the card to download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/az5gsa4bukv0sde/IMG_9893.JPG?dl=0
Entries will only be accepted with a selfie holding the ticked Bingo Card....or if you don't have printer you can edit the image on your phone or laptop with a tick and then send that in with a selfie seperate.
Please send your entries via e-mail or text message 07756336603, or if you're on Facebook then add them to the group chat.
Litter pick at the very beautiful but unfortunately very messy Durley Chine. Let's see what treasures are waiting for us this time!! Usual meeting spot just outside the harvester. Bin bags and gloves provided.
Meet at their premises unless I already have the flyers and/or they want the leaflets delivering in another part of Bournemouth, in which case I’ll amend the meeting point.
On Jun 27th 2020 Keith Baker set themselves the goal to run further.
Keith just hit their target to to run 10.0 km in a single session.
During this period Keith logged 1 runs a week.
So back to Bishop's Aldhelm's School to finish the job from last week. We spilt into teams from the get go, Lea, Sam, Mark and Andrew got stuck in to digging and removing soil ready for the liner to be placed, Keith and Laura were on rock and root removal, Daryl and Ashok got sweaty shifting soil ready for the wood borders to be placed. Roshana, Sarah, Hannah and Grace were in charge of leveling the soil and laying the weed liner. Paul as always was delighted with our work and what a transformation!! GO TEAM GG Bournemouth! (virtual high fives all round!)
