Phill Stone has run 100 good deeds with GoodGym. Sat 19 Jun 2021

Phill has just reached another level: 100 good deeds with GoodGym. That's at least 100 times when they could have easily done something easier. But they didn't, Phill has kept going and going. Helping a lot of other people and getting a bit fitter at the same time. Congratulations Phill.

Phill-ing up on good deeds and Avon a litterrific time doing it!

Sat 19 Jun

Report written by Bristol runner

In this episode of SAS, the GoodGym runners were faced with some tough terrain whilst litter hunting. While mud is usually the biggest challenge whilst moving along the riverbanks safely, this time a wall of thick greenery had to be conquered which made moving and litter-picking an almost impossible task. Yet, all GoodGymmers proofed their brave spirits by plunging into the waist-deep grass (and thankfully not the river!) and still managed to collect an impressive amount of rubbish. The jungle-like environment seemed to evoke some wild instincts in some of the runners who used the green coverage to use a strategy of hide and ambush to catch particularly small pieces of rubbish.

Phill was unanimously voted winner of this mission. Not only did he show great expertise in the litter pick combat, he also earned his stripes collecting 100 good deeds with this mission and thereby finally making it into the circle of centurians (although he still needs to wear the costume on his next official outing!).

Congrats Phill and thanks for the cake!

Also great thanks to Mark from SAS who made this mission happen and for wheeling a huge load of rubbish back to the collection point.

Credits to Mel and Darren who provided us with litter pickers and bin bags.

And last but not least, a big congratulations to everyone else attending the task!

Given the brush off

Report written by Melanie Young

Pagoda painting commenced - so many tall GoodGymmers soon made light work with their light oak. Matt and Rose started low before reaching great heights.

The slide steps were given a first coat of red cedar, too, with great squat technique from bare-foot Sarah.

Phill and Darren had a Brush Off in a David and Goliath contest.

And then balloons - perfect Bristol.

Close border combat

Sat 12 Jun
β€’
Report written by Phill Stone

Last Saturday 9 goodgymers came to liberate our local berry maze from weeds that were fighting their way in around our favorite fruity bushes.

Task owner Barney likes to separate out the equipment for each job, and after a quick tussle for our weapons of choice we were tooled up and ready to battle the encroaching sprouts.

Newcomer Steve did a wonderful mowing job, giving the grass paths a professionally sharp haircut, whilst Sarah dug out crescents around the bushes, offering them some breathing room from the weeds.

Rebecca, Sara, David, and Jason took to digging weeds from the borders on the front lines, and GG veterans Paul and Clo defended the rear of the maze from the overgrowing bushes outside.

While all this was going on, task owner Jakie had set up a scarecrow sentry to watch over us, and there was a noticeable difference in how the maze looked by the time we had finished.

Top work everyone and thanks for coming along!

(If scything you is wrong) I don't want to be right

Sat 5 Jun

Report written by Phill Stone

Another sunny Saturday morning, another chance for goodgymers to get their slash on and help the Northern Slopes Initiative with some good old ground work.

With all this great weather we're finding lots of new plants growing, but the brambles we cut down before wanted to rejoin the party. Not a chance! We gave those pesky weeds a whack so that some prettier things could grow through instead. Shout out to the brave Katkin, Sara, and James as they picked up scythes for the first time (at the slopes at least). It ain't easy swinging these things about in the sizzling sun, but they put tremendous effort into it!

Good work all round and here's hoping that when we come back in a months time, the brambles have learnt their lesson (and to stay out of our meadow!)

Thanks everyone, see you again soon. :)
