Someone has been adding soil to my flower beds... the plot thickens.

Sat 16 Oct

Report written by Sarah Wren

Getting their fitness in early, several GoodGymers, along with Poppy 🐾, started the morning at Bexley parkrun in Danson Park.

Then we headed across to the other side of the park where, joined by more GG-ers, we were back at one of our regular gigs helping the dedicated and award-winning volunteers of the Friends of the Old English Garden.

Our task was to help prepare some flower beds in readiness for planting a display for the Queens Jubilee next spring and summer.

At each flower bed we loosened the soil, dug it out, mixed in homemade fertiliser to enrich it, then shovelled the earth back into the plot.

We π˜₯𝘢𝘨 deep and 𝘴𝘱𝘒π˜₯𝘦 good progress until, in contrast to the weather 𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘬cast, the heavens opened, quickly making the ground - and us - too wet to get the job finished.

Most of the GoodGymers headed home but a couple stayed a little longer to help clean and put away the gardening tools, rewarded with a warming cup of tea and delicious rock cakes.

Thank you for having us and see you on 20th November for our next installment.

The Best Jurassic Stag Beetle Hotel 🦌 πŸͺ²πŸ©

Report written by Sarah Lee

Early Morning Stag Do

🎡It was a hard mornings work and we were working with some logs🎢.

This mornings task, which followed the Bexley parkrun, was to assist the Friends of Danson Park in creating an environment for the nesting of stag beatles. This involved digging a number of holes and filling with logs and smaller branches. Hopefully the stag beetles will nest underneath this structure before emerging in seven years time. We managed to build five of these structures before the FODP called time and invited us for a coffee at Danson Stables. The FODP were a very friendly bunch and appreciated our efforts and we expect another invite in the future. The article in the recent Bexley Magazine prompted FODP to approach Goodgym for this task, so maybe further opportunities may arise from other community groups who have seen this article. Poppy wants to apologise to Martin for nicking his sandwich.

Another big tidy up out the way as we took on the side entrance at Danson Youth Centre. The weeds and bushes had taken over and it was time for us to fight back and reclaim lost land 🀣

With a small but brave team we attack with a host of weaponry cutting down, digging and clipping, however we weren't without casualties as an army of stinging nettles held there ground for a while. In the end the Bexley Goodgym garden army were just to strong πŸ’ͺ🏻

Thanks everyone for their hard work and thanks Sarah for the great pun πŸ™ŒπŸ»
