C S Lewis Nature Reserve

Wed 1 Jun 17:45 pm
Oxford Brookes Headington , London Road, Oxford , OX3 0BP
Helping protect the habitat

NEW TASK!

The C S Lewis nature reserve in Risinghurst has lost over 60 trees due to ash die back. With so many trees gone people have been walking everywhere instead of sticking do designated paths. BBOWT and their team of volunteers are slowly creating natural barriers from logs etc to block areas for regeneration and keep people on the paths. So far it's working but......there is a lot to do. Tonight we’ll help progress the project.

Please bring your own gardening gloves. Tools will be provided.

Meeting point for runners is the main entrance of Oxford Brookes Headington Road campus. We will set off from there at 17:45. It’s just under 2 miles to the Nature Reserve. Non- runners meet us at the entrance to the nature reserve at 6:15pm. Address is Lewis Close, OX3 8JD

Barricades of Brambles

Wed 18 May
Report written by Bethan Greenaway

This week we revisited South Ward Allotments.

Our particular set of skills had been requested by the manager of the site to help cut back brambles (what else?!?) threatening to take over one of the plots and block all important access to the main water stopcock.

Armed with a variety of cutty things we plunged in and soon amassed quite the bramble mountain. Goodgymers will not be defeated when it comes to brambles.

We chopped away, chatting as we went about parkrun, the upcoming Blenheim Triathlon, the ridiculousness of the housing market, our jaunt to Marlborough and chips.

After a last minute panic involving a lost pair of secateurs and a dismantling of the aforementioned bramble mountain, we stood back and proudly surveyed our handiwork.

Good work team! Welcome to Charlotte it was lovely to have you along this evening!

South Ward Allotments

Wed 18 May 18:00 pm
Magdalen Arms, 243 Iffley Road, Oxford, OX4 1SJ
The plot thickens

Tonight we've been called back in to South Ward Allotments, but this time by the person who manages the whole allotment site. They have a lot of vacant plots which they would like us to help clear of the worst of the weeds (jungle!) so that they are less of an overwhelming prospect for potential gardeners. We wouldn’t normally go to the same site 2 weeks in a row, but we’ve made an exception this time.

Please bring sturdy gardening gloves, and long trousers would be best for avoiding nettle stings and/or bramble scratches. (Is it even a GoodGym gardening task without some combination of those two?!)

Meeting options:
* Anyone wishing to run to the task as a group please meet outside the Magdalen Arms on Iffley Road a little before 6pm. We will set off at 6pm.
* If you would prefer to meet at the task please meet us on the opposite side of the road from the Redbridge Household Waste Recycling Centre OX1 4XG at 6:10pm (glamorous, I know!), and we will walk the last stretch as a group. It is a 5 minute walk from there so we set off straight away and do the register on arrival at the allotments.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are making your own way to the task the entrance is off Old Abingdon Road. Postcode OX1 4XS. Please be careful not to go into the static caravan site at Redbridge Hollow, but take the track to your right before the caravan park entrance. Let me know by commenting if you are likely to arrive after the main group as there is a padlocked gate so I will need to pop out to let you in. Probably best to park at the Redbridge Park & Ride, which is a 5-10 minute walk away.
