Running and yoga - my yin and yang. Sometimes I'm not sure which way around they are but it's all good! IG: runningnowandzen
It was a bright and sunny Saturday morning when a merry bunch of good-doers came to give our beloved maze some goodgym love. Sadly there was no scarecrow construction this time round, but that didn't stop us from jumping in and helping Barney and Jackie with maze maintenance (mazetenance?)
The pathways were creeping in on the berry bushes, bringing weeds along with the grass, which meant that some new edges were needed throughout the maze. We tooled up and spread around the maze while veteran goodgymers still managed to get lost, despite the numerous trips here.
We welcomed newcomer Rosannah to goodgym, who did a cracking job with Sophie at clearing the outside of the maze. On the inside Emma jumped on the mower to deliver cheery drive-by chats to the rest of the cutting edge team. After a good hour, we cleared up and left the maze with a fresh & sharp new look that'll kept the weeds at bay for a little while longer.
We also celebrated Nathalie 's 100th Goodgym task! She may have dodged donning the centurion outfit (for now), but she definitely hasn't avoided an opportunity to give up her time for good causes around Bristol. Well done Nathalie!
Thanks for coming along everyone! We'll be back again soon (hopefully this will be the time we finally get to make these scarecrows!)
Saturday before last (sorry for the delayed report!) a handful of chirpy goodgymers gathered at the slopes for our usual hack n slash sessions, only to find that the area has been overrun with green grass, cow parsley and all sorts of vibrant vegetation. It's been lovely to see the progress made over the last few months, turning an apocalyptic bramble wasteland into a meadow fit for luscious new flowers and fauna!
The team got to work with their preferred bramble and weed destroying tools, whilst having a good old natter under the sunshine. We also welcomed Marion and James to their first ever Goodgym session! Both of them made a stellar effort lopping the stairway, we hope they come back again for more great work soon. :)
Thanks for coming along everyone, amazing effort! See you at the slopes again soon.
