Group Fitness Activities
Oxford City Farm are planning a Drop in morning and pop up cafe and have requested some help from GoodGym. There will be tea and cake, seed gathering, and other activities around the farm. We’ll help run the cafe, welcome visitors and assist with other activities around the farm.
This session will offer an opportunity for people of all ages to come and enjoy the farm, meet and feed the animals, and have a cup of tea.
Please bring your own gardening gloves just in case there are gardening jobs to do.
Directions: The City Farm is tucked away behind the Isis Court Care Home on the Iffley Road end of Cornwallis Road.
One of the Trustees of Littlemore Village Hall met us when we were gardening at Flo's on May Day, and has subsequently got in touch to ask for help tidying up the village hall garden.
In exchange for some GoodGym weeding and pruning they will supply tea, coffee, and homemade cake. Surely that's everything we need to tempt us beyond the ring road?!
Please bring your own gardening gloves. Tools will be supplied.
I (Anwen) will be planning on running Horspath parkrun that morning if anyone wants to meet there first.
The Ark-T centre have a Summer Celebration event on Friday 15th July and have asked for some help getting the gardens ready.
They need some help sprucing up and installing some items in the playspace for the sensory garden, including putting together a solar-powered water feature. There are also some planters that need a bit of tlc, and some signs to be designed, painted and put up, a wigwam to paint in funky colours, plus we'll give the pathway a good sweep and scrub, trim the trees back, and tidy up the mud kitchen area.
As always, bring your gardening gloves, and if you're up for a bit of painting then wear clothes you don't mind getting some paint splatters on.
* Anyone wishing to run to the task as a group please meet in the car park of the Richard Benson Hall, 276b Cowley Rd at 6pm. There won’t be a bag drop available but we can use the toilets there. It's a little over a mile to Ark-T from there.
* If you would prefer to meet at the task please meet us at 6:15pm at the Ark-T Centre playspace garden.

GoodGym Oxford volunteers joined early morning runners for Run Jericho 2022 - 1 mile, 5km and 10km races. Well done to Sam for nearly continuing his streak of finishing in the top 10, crossing the finish line in 11th place. Special shout out to the group of running dinosaurs who managed to survive the heat! A roarsome effort all round.
Well done to all the GoodGymmers who completed the 2022 Run Wytham Woods 10km - despite the sun and many, many hills! Particular congratulations go to Sam for not only finishing in the top 10, but doing so after a late night throwing shapes at a ceilidh. A new cross training program to consider perhaps?
