Group Run - Better Bristol - 1 Feb

Tue 1 Feb 18:15 pm
Queen Square, Bristol, BS1 4LH
Tidier Bristol happier GoodGymmers

It's Tuesday so it's a group run, meeting in (and returning to) Queen Square and leaving there at 6.30 - It's dark so bring a head torch as well as your gloves!

We’re back for 2022 and spreading GoodGym loveliness somewhere!

Changing facilities, lockers and loos are available at Workout Harbourside - bring your own padlock or inventive personal prized possession to swap for one of theirs if you want to lock your, er, locker. Otherwise it’s just an er. Make sure you’re back out in Queen Square for 6.20!

Return to Manor Woods Valley

Sat 5 Feb 10:45 am
Manor Valley Woods, Vale Lane, , Bristol, BS3 5SA
Getting stuck in with a local group to improve our open spaces

Its been two years since our last visit so we're long overdue a return to Manor Woods Valley.

Martin is always happy to see us and should have plenty for us to do, most likely revolving around some repairs to the Woodlands path.

This first visit will be a slightly smaller group than in the past as MVCG gets back up to speed so numbers have been capped at 6 - hopefully we'll be able to organise some bigger work parties later in the year.

I've set the start for 10:45 to make it nice and easy for anyone at the earlier Northern Slopes task to come along when they finish should they be up for a double deed.

We'll meet at the entrance just off Vale Lane

Sofa so good

Tue 25 Jan
Report written by Melanie Young

Another dry January evening welcomed over 20 GoodGymmers for the biggest group run for a while, including Mike joining us for the first time and all three of last week's newcomers returned!

It was optional fancy dress for the run, see who you can spot in the photos, but considered very normal in Bristol.

Xanne welcomed us to Emmaus with news that they're currently van-less so there was space to move and to move things, very excitingly.

Let the sofa-shifting, mattress-moving and bed-breaking commence!

Huge progress was made although headgear was hard to come by, so the end photo shows more variation of item than usual, if it can ever be considered usual?

Another run back and some stretching and chatting - it almost felt normal.

Nine GoodGymers met on a chilly Friday morning. Today’s task consisted of weeding and sweeping leaves around the front and back of the farm. Was lovely seeing everyone today whilst doing some good.

Friday Farm Frolics

Fri 21 Jan 08:00 am
Windmill Hill City Farm, Philip Street, Bedminster , Bristol , BS3 4EA
The city farm will be even more lovely for visitors and the farm's residents

Are you finding it hard to motivate yourself in the morning? Come and join us for a end of the week morning dose of goodness at Windmill Hill City Farm.

Early morning, fresh air, walking/running/cycling (or however else you travel), volunteering, animals (and people, if you like them - socially distanced of course) - what a great way to start your day!

Expect a decent workout for our arms and upper body ;)

Emmaus-ing maneouvres in the dark - 25 Jan

Tue 25 Jan 18:20 pm
Queen Square, Bristol, BS1 4LH
Somewhere will be tidier/cleaner/better publicised/painted

It's Tuesday so it's a group run, meeting in (and returning to) Queen Square and leaving there at 6.30

Whoop! We're back to see our very good friend Xanne at Emmaus's magic Tardis warehouse to do whatever needs doing - constructing, destructing, puzzling, cleaning and mainly wearing anything possible as a hat.

This is indoors, but in a very well ventilated huge warehouse - the enormous roller shutter doors will be open so there will be a gale blowing through the warehouse. Please bring your mask as well as your gloves :-)

Changing facilities, lockers and loos are available at Workout Harbourside- bring your own padlock or inventive personal prized possession to swap for one of theirs if you want to lock your, er, locker. Otherwise it’s just an er. Make sure you’re back out in Queen Square for 6.20!

Tidying up Northern Slopes

Sat 5 Feb 09:30 am
Nover's Hill Steps, Northern Slopes, Novers Hill, Parson Street, Lynton Road Junction, Bristol, BS3 5RD
Improve a local green space

Come and join us at Northern Slopes at 9:30 to make the area look more tidy by addressing the regrown, defining the paths, clearing space for more trees as well as some litter-picking in the area

The map function on here will take you to the wrong place.

We will be meeting at the top of Novers Steps. Look up manage.stones.burst on what3words.com to see the exact location.

Please bring your own gloves. Tools will be provided. As some parts of this task involve thick bramble bushes, please consider adequate clothing.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

St Francis Church, 279 North Street, Bristol, BS3 1JP
Children can enjoy walking in the parade

Bennie Lantern Parade is back to cheer everyone up (a bit longer) after Christmas (than originally planned), it’s always very lovely if a bit chilly - definitely wear a lot of layers over your GG t-shirt!

We’ll be safety stewards throughout the route for the biggest community event in South Bristol and sometimes head to a pub to warm up when we’re finished 😁

Litter-ally gorgegous - reloaded

Sat 15 Jan
Report written by Bristol runner

On Saturday morning, 9 Goodgymers gathered for another collective push against the sheer never-ending environmental pollution along the riverbanks of the Avon. We jumped onto the green patches just underneath the suspension bridge and filled our big bin bags (kindly sponsored by Bristol Waste) with the discarded rubbish. This time, the price for the strangest find went to Mark from SAS for scavenging a stretch skeleton toy (leftover from last Halloween I suppose?). After an hour, the riverbank looked a lot less depressing, and we hope it won't be such a sad sight when we return to the gorge next month.

Big thank you to Alexandra and Lucy for joining us and congrat to you first good deed(s)!
