We knew weed manage it

Tue 21 Sep
Report written by Melanie Young

Just one task on a Tuesday night made for a much simpler intro and plan, though the counting thing was still a struggle! Cycling and running groups set off after celebrating various event successes and supporting including Maria's VI guiding for the Bristol 10K. We're hoping to further increase GG Bristol's involvement with the Bristol VI Runners - watch this space! Maria then led the whole group to the lovely Berry Maze.

Jackie was so impressed with the turnout that the first action was to get more tools out!

GoodGymmers were soon recreating sharp edges on the maze beds, giving the lavender plants space to breath, unwinding bindweed, clearing prickly weeds and eating lovely red and golden raspberries and a few blackberries.

Maybe the most fun was the resultant "Weed Toss" - all the weeds get chucked into the wilderness zone, initially over Very Tall Phill's head.

It was great being back amongst so many GoodGymmers helping our community. We were rewarded with a gorgeous sunset, a realisation that headtorches (or Vaguely Northern Darren's glove lights) are a good idea already!

Congratulations to Clo for her 300th good deed and accompanying cake :-)

GG Eats at Three Brothers Burgers

Tue 5 Oct 20:10 pm
Three Brothers Burgers, Bristol, BS1 4SB
Yummy burgers and time with your GG friends

GoodGym Eats are Back!

Pre-pandemic times at GoodGym Bristol we used to go out for a meal together after GoodGym on the first Tuesday of the month. We're going to get back to this. It's a great chance to have a proper chat with other GoodGymmers whether you are new or a regular and hopefully have some tasty food.

I have currently booked the table for 20 people but I'm sure I can expand this if there are more people interested.

Three Brothers Burgers is very close to Queen Square. They have lots of tasty burgers with veggie/vegan options. Here’s the menu. Hope to see you there!

(We each pay for what we ate/drank rather than splitting the bill so you can keep it cheap/push the boat out (not literally, please) as suits your hunger and bank balance)

Pond-ering around St Werbs

Tue 7 Sep
Report written by Alice Dalrymple

On a super sunny evening we ran to St Werberghs community garden to help with a range of tasks (once we got there with my dodgy Google map reading!) - clearing weed and brambles from the pond area, removing bind weed anywhere we found it, giving the grass on the path a hair cut and sweeping up the compost area. It was great to natter whilst we worked and I was gutted I couldn't run with the bucket full of grass I'd cleared..my guinea pigs would have loved it!

After a quick pic by the rooster we headed back to queen square before some of us dashed off to get home for dinner and others heading to the bar for a well deserved pint ☺

Sara's on the right scythe of 50

Sat 4 Sep
Report written by Phill Stone

This week we returned to the slopes and found the grass area had taken full advantage of a 2 month gap from zealous weed bashing goodgymers, the brambles and weeds had grown to knee height!

However, we had a secret weapon. Now with 50 good deeds fueling her, Sara picked up the scythe and unleashed her good-doing wrath on the brambles!

Some of the team also took a trip to another section of the slopes that needed some care, and between them and the scything team we made a large dent in the overgrowth and gave us a good starting point for next months trip!

We spotted a solitary apple growing on a tree planted earlier this year, a sign of great things to come!

We were also treated to Sara's most excellent baking, a 50/50 split between white and dark chocolate brownies! Well done on reaching 50 good deeds and thanks to everyone for coming along!

(on train atm, will upload more photos later)

Moving cabin(ets) & earth for Headley Park Primary

Wed 1 Sep
Report written by Sara

Four runners performed yet another good deed at Headley Park Primary. Starting indoors, we moved furniture to set up a daycare space for disabled pupils. How many GoodGymmers does it take to move a cupboard? Insert witty answer here Next, we tackled the old compost heap outside, shovelling earth and moving it into the school's shrubbery. The shrubs are now well fertilised and the area outside the tool shed is free to be transformed into something new and exciting, like an outdoor learning space. Or a UFO landing pad.
