Allot-a tasks to lettuce us get stuck into!

Wed 16 Jun
Report written by Jess Smith

5 Goodgymmers met on another lovely summers evening to help out at the Maidenhead Community Allotment.

It is always a treat to return to the site of Maidenhead and Windsor Goodgym's first ever community mission, and tonight was no exception. There was a list of mini tasks to get stuck into so to get cracking everyone picked a number and were allocated the associated task!

  1. Hannah got the whiffy job of filling the new raised bed with horse manure and then mixing in some top soil to make it ready for more plants to go into the amazing space.

  2. Ange 's tasks was to empty the new water butt, move it to its new location at the back of the shed and then set up the hose to fill the water butt up!

  3. Jess was gifted the awkward task of covering the new wooden frame over one the raised beds with netting to stop the birds getting to the lettuce. Ange also came to help whilst the butt was filling. It was fiddly task as the netting had to be secured to the frame with wool to stop it from coming loose.

  4. Nicola took on the weeding of the areas around the fruit bushes (planted by Goodgym on a previous task), there were lots to be cleared and she ended up with a mountain of weeds to be added to the compost heap. Georgetta also got in on this act and helped give the bushes some space to breathe.

  5. Before helping with the weeding Georgetta fixed some wood edging along the side of the long bed, she did an excellent job and it looks really smart!

  6. Finally a trip to the allotment would not be complete with a bit of watering, with the dry weather it was important to give them a little drink, and hopefully some rain over the next few days will help too.

All the runners were impressed with the changes and the progress at the allotment and agreed it was always a pleasure to help out here. Look out for more tasks at this location!

Special mention also goes to Nicola as this was her 10th Good Deed! Yay!!!

A Birch-jets Green(ery) School run

Wed 9 Jun
Report written by Nicola

The sun setting through the trees made a lovely backdrop for six GoodGym helpers tackling a range of tasks around the grounds of Burchetts Green School. Juli planted birch trees while Jordan set to work on the greenery around the front gates. Amy, Hannah and Nicola pulled up weeds around the car park, and Sophie jet washed the climbing frame until it was so spotless we were scared to pose for our group photo on it in case we made it dirty again! Afterwards, Amy, Juli and Sophie headed off for a run to make the most of another sunny evening.
