An hour of light gardening: pulling weeds, trimming edges etc to get the bowling hut garden and wild flower areas looking good for summer.
First of more now we’ve lockdown restrictions have eased.
Please bring your own gloves. Tools provided.
We attended the Berry Maze to help them with fitting new raspberry posts and other tasks. A few GoodGymmers helped with the post driving/bashing whilst the rest of us helped with various tasks which included weeding, path clearance and putting up some wire fencing. We were able to spread out to remain socially distanced (don't be fooled be the group photo, there was no hand holding involved).
Excellent work everyone!
Can you spot a GG mask anywhere?
Please note that this community mission has been cancelled.
We've been asked by the Knowle Alliance to deliver their new leaflets. We've got an allocation of streets covering Bedminster, Knowle and the surrounding Knowle West area.
Lets hope for a clear spring day :)
We'll be putting up new raspberry posts to make it look all a-maze-ing and help with general jobs such as replacing wires and weeding to keep the area looking spick and span.
Laura completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Laura was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Congratulations to Laura who is now Mission Verified. They're now ready to start running GoodGym missions to help older people and running alone to community mission. Give Laura a cheer to kickstart their mission running career.
Laura is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
It was another gorgeous Saturday morning when 9 GoodGym runners met by the Avon to pick litter along the river banks. Mark from Surfers Against Sewage instructed us what to look out for and how to safely move along the banks to avoid a cold dip into the river. Some of us were already quite familiar with the task while for others, like our newest GoodGym recruit Laura, this was their first time litter hunting. Everyone seemed to be "picking it up" in no time as we scanned the grass for discarded items whilst discussing the basic recycling rules, debating appropriate footwear, and pointing out some dubious findings.
A big thank you to Mark for organising this task for us and to the runners on the Portway who cheered us on. We had so much fun that we decided to do this again next week but on the opposite of the river.
Great job everyone!
