Green sleeves

Fri 16 Apr
Report written by Jo Kitching

It was a beautiful spring Friday morning and four eager Goodgym volunteers headed to Southsea Medical centre to help out with the morning shift.

We were soon set to our positions, Paul was near the tent ensuring patients either waited or could go home. He was also carrying out more gardening and removing weeds from around the area with a tablespoon. A new gardening tool that shows anything can be used. Paul also brought some cabbage leaves for John hence the title of the report and bad pun photo.

Andy was in reception and giving patients their COVID cards and information sheets and was doing a double shift so would be there till 2pm.

John was on the front door welcoming patients with the hand sanitiser and stepping in with assistance on the thermometers when needed. Jen’s mum Sharron was also helping today although not via Goodgym and was taking the patients temperatures.

Jo was in the waiting room but it was pretty quiet so she went on the tea and coffee round ensuring all volunteers had a drink if they needed one. She also took up a role of the buddy and stepped into any roles when that volunteer needed a comfort break.

A great 'bay' for gardening

Mon 5 Apr
Report written by Rosie Sayers

Easter Monday perfectly celebrated; surrounded by bluebells, white bells, daffodils and tulips! We made use of our work free day continuing the great work already done clearing and tidying The Devonshire Practice garden.

Paul distributed a few tasks between us.

Sarah pruned the bay tree, shaping it beautifully to allow more to be planted underneath.

Tracey continued to tidy up all the debris from around potentially the oldest cherry tree is Portsmouth, which really opened up the space making the garden look even bigger.

Aaron and Rosie cleared rubbish and prickly pyracanthus cuttings disturbing lots of yummy wild garlic smells!

Whilst Paul effortlessly pulled up some plants no longer needed and took to the massive challenge of controlling the ivy on the back wall and keeping the neighbours company, checking they were okay with what he was doing.

We had a short biscuit break, Rosie had bought to celebrate her 100th good dead. Then back to it with more pruning, cutting back, digging and clearing.

We were amazed at how much we managed to achieve together in a few hours, brilliant team work!
