Report written by Lorenzo

This Sunday evening great weather to do some litter picking with an amazing company (the little Dora). She was very supportive and awake all the time 😃 helping cleaning the park from some litters left after the Sunday picnic.

Lorenzo has forgone the usual weekend routine. Instead of lie-ins, roasts and strolls around the park Lorenzo has dropped everything to run a GoodGym mission for someone who needed help. Respect

Five tonnes of fun

Wed 30 Mar
Report written by Anwen Greenaway

It's the return of light evenings: No more Wednesday GoodGyming in the dark!

Our first post-clock-change task was at one of our regular locations - Boundary Brook Nature Park. Over the course of the last year we've been gradually extending the gravel paths around the site. We have an efficient system for the task nailed now, so we set to work with a dozen wheelbarrows moving in convoy, and an ace shovelling team. We were able to keep a constant flow of gravel moving through the Nature Park and getting deposited at Henry and Helen's feet for raking and spreading into a smooth(ish) pathway. We even spotted a deer rushing through the woodland as we worked.

It was great to see the bird hide coming together over in the wildflower meadow section of the Nature Park, as we shifted a lot of the wood to make the structure on a previous GoodGym task, and also weeded bramble roots out of the area to creare a smooth space for it. :-) People will now be able to get to it on a smooth new gravel path.

In total we shifted approximately 5 tonnes of gravel to extend the wheelchair-friendly paths around the nature park which we started back in April 2021. That works out at 1/3 of a tonne per GoodGymer - A more than decent workout! I'm sure we're all feeling it in our arms and shoulders this morning.

Welcome to GoodGym Nadeem!

Boundary Brook Nature Park

Wed 30 Mar 18:00 pm
Richard Benson Hall, 276 Cowley Rd, Oxford, OX4 1UR
Building Paths

Back on the spring/summer tasks now the clocks have changed!

Boundary Brook Nature Park was created in 1990 when a group of community wildlife enthusiasts rescued a plot of disused allotments to carve out a wild space in the heart of East Oxford. 30 years on the space is thriving, with mixed woodland, meadow, a nature pond and butterfly glade.

Oxford Urban Wildlife Group have asked for our help to finish building the paths we started last May. We’ll do a Saturday afternoon session in April too.

Please bring your own gardening gloves. All other tools will be provided.

Meeting options:
* Anyone wishing to run or walk to the task as a group please meet in the car park of the Richard Benson Hall, 276b Cowley Rd at 6pm. There will be running and walking routes planned. It's less than a mile to Boundary Brook Nature Park. There won’t be a bag drop available.
* If you would prefer to meet at the task please meet us outside Larkrise Primary on Boundary Brook Road at 6:15pm.

Time to check out the Lord Mayor’s Parlour

Wed 9 Mar 18:30 pm
The Lord Mayor's Parlour, Oxford Town Hall, Oxford, OX1 1BX
A late 3rd birthday celebration

We’ve got another chance to have a ‘do’ at the Lord Mayor’s Parlour, this time to mark (pun intended) 3 years of GoodGym in Oxford.

We will have a couple of hours to relax in the grand surroundings of the town hall and toast friendships made, good deeds done, and all the ways you’ve made the city a better, more connected place over the last 3 years.
