Weed all About It!

Mon 23 May
Report written by Tabitha Skinner

Samina, Liz, Tabitha, Pete and Sabina all met at Papagayo to start the goodgym group run to go to Clitterhouse for gardening.

We had the usual hello chatter, "how was your week", "isn't this weather weird", "let's hope it stops raining". When we had all arrived we started the warm up.

We tied the pumpkin plants to stalks at Clitterhouse farm, then ran back to our favourite haunt.

Tabitha pulled weeds with confidence, some were more stubborn than others but had success in the end. Samina and Becka were there too

Pete and Liz were required for manual labour and weight lifting. Their tast was to move building rubbish out of sight ready for the cafe opening. There were also two extremely heavy crates to move. This was followed by weeding and sweeping.

Samina and Helen were busy "staking their claim" on the corn crop.

No more floppy stems

after expert tying to bamboo poles

and Liz and Pete did some marvelous weeding

The weeding job was very tricky, a full body work out standing up and pulling from the roots. After 30 minutes we had made a great difference but sadly were not able to remove them all...but will return soon we are sure.

We ran back to the pub for some group stretching exercises, then into our favourite pub for our usual weekly drinks.

Rebecca arrived...and everyone rejoiced

We had a round robin for the cool down stretches, followed by...

Pete and Helen had a sprint for the finish- with Pete the clear victor. After a round of stretches, we called it a night and retreated to Papagayo for a well deserved beverage.

Cheers Team Brent!

We're still at Papagayo Cafe - we can leave bags but the run leaders or Taskforce will help with this to prevent any unnecessary congregation inside! Please try to minimise what you bring.

Digging

Mon 16 May
Report written by Liz James

The amazing trio Sabina, Helen and Liz met outside Papagayo. After a quick warm-up, the team quickly put their best foot forward and began the muggy run to Clitterhouse Farm.

There were 3 tasks which the team quickly completed. They dead-headed the daffodils, dug a trench around a flower bed and removed the weeds from another flower bed.

Soon, the team began their return run to Papagayo.

Chipping in!

Mon 11 Apr
Report written by Liz James

Today Sabina, Karen, Helen, Lee and Liz met for a short warm-up. Sabina then led the way to Clitterhouse Farm.

When we arrived Valentina, Kat and Danny had already started chipping in by weeding the flower beds. Sabina joined this team.

Becka, Helen, Karen, Lee and Liz were quick to chip in too by moving the wood chippings with spades and a wheelbarrow. The chippings were moved to areas which easily become water logged to soak up the extra water.

The time flew by and it was soon time to chip in with the tidying up and then to return to base to eat chips!

Sand and deliver!

Mon 7 Feb
Report written by Liz James

We met outside of Papagayo cafe for a short intro and warm-up. A big welcome to Tom, who joined for his first GG run and to Khush who joined the Brent group for the first time.

We set off in two groups for the run to the task. Upon arrival at the task, we split into two teams. Team A set to work first, sanding down the Wendy house. Meanwhile, Team B participated in a HITT session, including knee to elbow skips, sumo squats, ice skatters, star jumps and superman stretches.

After 15 minutes, we swapped jobs. Team B varnished the Wendy house, while Team A went back to school for a game of 'What's the time Mr Wolf?'

Finally, we ran back to base for drinks and chips!
