Brambles, Bricks and Bugs

Sat 2 Oct
Report written by Liz Pharoah

On a rather wet Saturday morning, 4 GoodGym members cycled and walked to the Positive Choices allotment.

It was great to head back here to support as we have supported them before and the progress made on the allotment area is amazing.

Today's task was to clear an area for an orchard. We had many brambles to dig up so Nigel and Kathering set too on these whilst Laura and I had many bricks to move so created a bug hotel with the bricks.

Luckily, although it was a bit rainy, we were finished before the massive downpour.

Wet as an otter's pocket

Tue 28 Sep
Report written by Liz Pharoah

On what was probably the wettest Tuesday evening for a long time. Six GoodGym Coventry runners made their way to the Social supermarket. Some of the puddles were not puddles but lakes. Unfortunately Helen had forgotten we were coming so we had a small wait to catch up and try and keep warm. We learnt about Cycling at Cannock Chase and Jackie's impending long run- all the best Jackie!

Once Helen arrived, we set to cleaning the kitchen and tidying a cupboard which had been a bit of a dumping ground!

We then ran back as quickly as we could to stop ourselves from getting colder- autumn has very much arrived.

We are back at the Social Supermarket next week.

Bramble removing and digging at the Positive Choice allotments

Sat 2 Oct 09:30 am
positive choices allotment, Radford Road Allotments, Coventry , CV6 3AD
Improve the environment for those in need

We visited Positive Choices last year and helped clear areas of their allotment. They would like some support this week in their allotment.

The site is next to the potting shed, the space needs clearing of brambles (leaving a boundary of brambles next to external fence) and the site needs digging over to remove bramble roots if possible.

Bring your own gardening gloves.

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 allotment up keep.

Bean sorting tins

Tue 21 Sep
Report written by Liz Pharoah

It was great to head out to Carriers of Hope to support them at their donations centre.

6 GoodGym Coventry runners ran 8 km to the warehouse. Once there we sorted tins of assorted beans into bean varieties, baby food based on best by dates and a variety of toiletry products needed sorting and putting on shelves.
