St Werburgh's Community Centre was looking a weed bit messy so a group of plucky souls stepped in. Weed be here all night if I weedy wanted to keep on digging up the same old puns so let's just say we got more roots than a vegetable family tree drawn on map of ski runs in Aspen. Within 45 minutes we not only had cleared the perimeter of intruders, we had also kicked all the Goldilocks plants out of their incorrect beds. Misty from the Centre had us pegged from the start as she marked then unwanted residents with a clothes peg so we didn't remove the rightful remnants. It was great to see such a great group of GoodGymers again after so long. I missed you lot!
Courses and other goings on are due to start but at the moment it’s a bit (lot) untidy we’ll be weeding the cracks/edges of the paths around the perimeter of the centre and maybe some flower beds but they’ll tell us exactly what should be staying and what is a weed!
There’s also an option to run (the 3k) from Queen Square, meeting at 6.30 and leaving soon after - if it’s 6.45 you’ve definitely missed them! The training session for the run there is here.
It’s time to get back to Southville and help them provide all the amazing community services they can with their outdoor space! The nursery are already benefitting from our efforts.
If it’s dry we should be able to finish the painting but Hugh has a list of projects for us otherwise! 😎
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.
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!
