Good weed of the day

Mon 11 Oct
Report written by Manjit Birk

It was so lovely to be back at St George's Church. We really do love this task venue.

We meet at Kennedy Park and knowing we only has a short walk/run to the task we decided to go for the hills! The views from this park are actually quite stunning!

After our hill sprints we made our way to the task venue - We had to get to the Church on thyme!

On arrival we met Eva, who showed us to the area that needed our help.

The garden has definately missed us as the weeds had shot back up! But we didn't moss around. Each one of us grabbed a tool and got to work.

With all the tasks now being in the dark (which weirdly I find more theraputic!) the night lights were out as we set to work on the 'circle of life' paving slabs.

The topic of the evening was Brexit! We realised that the lack of bread and pasta in Sainsbury's is making us feel like nothing compares to EU

Literally in a jiffy we had the circle looking like it had had a good cut back and sides! We are actually quite good at makeovers!

Thank you Eva for our olive treats at the end - 'Olive you so much'!

Next week we are back at Wexham Park Hospital for a litter pick task.

We fought the lawn… and the lawn won

Mon 4 Oct
Report written by Manjit Birk

Tonight was a first of many ...

  • First time we helped at Parvaaz's new premises in Taplow

  • First task for Sutyee after her first marathon

  • First task for me after my first virtual marathon.

Your pace or mine

With all that weekend activity, there was no running involved tonight... the team were more than happy to walk the short distance at my snail's pace!

Shear joy

The task was to cut back all the shrubbery and mow the lawn, with newly purchased shears and mower we were raring to go!

With all the night lights out (it really is that time of year again!), we actually did really well to get the job done!

There is something theraputic about gardening in the dark! With a great team on hand... we were on a 'winning streak'

  • We had Sandy The Shearer! giving the hedge a really good cut back and sides

  • On the right we had Simmi The Strimmer cutting the bushes then off showing her mowing skills

  • Whilst Pam The Pruner pruned the hedges

  • The Cutter Claire had already made a start on the side bushes before we even got there... and last but not least we had

  • The Jack of all Trades Sutyee giving us the task overview and doing a bit of this and a bit of that!

Despite the tired heavy legs ... we all 'kicked grass'

We even saved Freddie the Frog from the blades of the lawn mower .. well done Pam for spotting him/her!

Round one complete, we agreed to rebook in another task in a few weeks time to finish off the areas we missed tonight.

Salt Hill Activity Centre, Bath road, Slough, SL1 3SS
Improve the outdoor space

This will be our second round of helping Slough Refugees with their back garden space

We made some headway on our community mission but this does need a bit more time on it plus a few more helpers.

If arriving by car please park in the Salt hill park (car park just on your right hand side as you enter) then walk over to the green gym

We will do a lap or two of the park before making our way to the center (which is in the park)

Litter bit of fitness

Mon 27 Sep
Report written by Manjit Birk

We had a last minute change of task today as our scheduled task owner had to sadly postpone for another date due to illness.

Our fall back whenever this happens is to do a litter pick, which soon will become challenging to do in the dark evenings however for today… it was the ‘right thing to do!’

Lights, camera, action

We started by doing the usual task brief followed by a few warm up games then a jog around the park from 4km post to 5km post.

This is where the action started! With agility and speed work ably captured on camera by myself! And just as the light started to fade we ran back to the 4km post to start our task.

B I N G O

Who says litter picking can’t be fun!

Pinching an idea from GoodGym Ealing we decided to see which team could cross off the most amount of items on the GoodGym litter pick card!

We had Team Doctor’s orders and Team Get up and run

I joined Team Doctor’s orders and I can tell you that there was a ‘duck and dive’ as they tried to find the winning items! Amazing what you can find when you ‘hit the floor’ and delve deep into the bushes… no ‘droopy drawers’ but plenty of booze!

Just the poo missing of this list (plus a newspaper, a coin and food peelings)… but we did find a toy car as our special item and a plank of MDF as put too big to bag item.?

Team Get up and run found the poo but we’re missing quite a few other items despite having ‘Queen Bee’ Jean in the team, they felt they had it harder as their area was just too clean! … ‘up to tricks’ me thinks but they did have a good ‘pick and mix’

And the winning tean was….Team Doctor’s order! Though we agreed we are all winners

Always allot to do…

Mon 20 Sep
Report written by Manjit Birk

Back into the root-ine

A lovely evening at the allotments. This task has been a firm favourite for a while, maybe due to the open space or the essence behind the task or maybe because we just like killing weeds!

We met at The King Wexham for the task brief, warm up and gentle run down to the allotments.

Great to have Simmi and Dr join us on their first GoodGym session tonight!

With Sandy joining us again after her little break it was great to run down the streets of Slough in the Red T's again in a larger group and back to our Monday night root-ine!

Matter of thyme

A short while later we were at the allotments and having the keys to lettuce selves in is so mulch easier these days.

So in a jiffy we had the tools out and were ready to turnover plots 1 and 2. We knew it would be a matter of thyme before the weeds came back! But the soil, albeit dry was relatively easy to turn over and made the task easier.

We hope that soon our lovely task owner will have some pre or post natal ladies to start sowing the seeds and helping the plants blossom.

Really? A Relay!

With proper attire this time by one member... naming no names! We decided to do a 100 meter relay as the first part of our fitness session.

To welcome our new participants we made them team leaders as Team A and Team B battled to win. I cant actually remember who won! Everyones a winner in my eyes (such a mum thing to say hahah!)

Put your best foot forward

As if the relay wasn't enough, we then did my round the world leg strengthening exercises! A few oo's and aah's means we were working those muscles... we then headed back up the road to our start point.

Thank you for coming along this evening! Next week we are meeting at Baylis Park for a task in Manor Park area.
