Denney and Dusted

Tue 24 May
Report written by Sheila Attenborough

The Spencer Denney centre in Winsdor provides actvities and lunches for local older people. Their outside area was in need of a tidy-up, so just up our street! Diya, Kanika and Sheila cycled to the task, and joined Rhi, Jordan, Juli and Rachel at the centre. There we met task-owner Rachel, who got all the equipment out for us and explained the tasks. Rhi took on the grass-mowing, whilst the others started sweeping and weeding the patio area. All the biodegradable material was moved to the compost heap, and any other rubbish tidied into a black bag. Rhi was so successful with her mowing that the mower over-heated and needed to have a break to cool down before the work could continue. By the end of the session, the garden was looking spick and span. Maybe we could return some day to repaint the multi-coloured fence? Great work everyone! Thanks to Rhi for the title pun

Mooing from one place to another 🐄

Tue 24 May
Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

Another GoodGym task, set in the fields of sunny Bray.

The GoodGym herd of Amy, Shelia, Anita and myself, turned up, along with 6 moo starters.

Sadly the moo starters spent most of the task chewing the grass.

After a small mishap of the missing task instructor, Amy popped along to Little Muddy Me Preschool, for a loan of supplies.

Once back, we could start to log the task and branch out a bit.

All under the watchful eye of the moo starters.

We had to move a heap of brambles and thorns, from one field to another, so not a good idea to forget your gardening gloves.

With the moo starters now taking an interest in us, we had to tread carefully moving the bags of brambles.

Inside the brambles, Amy managed to find a frog, which was let back into the wild but not before signing up for the next GoodGym task.

Five bags later and a light rain shower, with the cows gone, we managed to complete moving the heap.

This was all to help manage the ecology in this 'Site of Special Scientific Interest' so that the rare Pennyroyal plant can continue to grow and thrive.

To finish off we even managed a litter picking exercise.

Well done all and another thoroughly enjoyable thorny task.

We're Painting in the Rain, Just Painting in the Rain

Tue 17 May
Report written by Sheila Attenborough

We're painting in the rain Just painting in the rain What a glorious feelin' The fence is brown again! A warm evening saw Anita, Anne-Laure, Diya, Kanika, Jen, Rachel, Roberta and Sheila gather at Kiddies Cabin for another session of fence painting. Alice had already set out the paint, brushes and protective paper ready for us by the sections that needed painting. And we were off! We made such good progress that we finished the designated areas, and the team managed to do a whole extra section too. A little bit of rain didn't dampen our spirits, another satisfying evening's work.

Pile it high, sell it cheap!

Tue 17 May
Report written by Sheila Attenborough

Maidenhead Foodshare is opening a new social supermarket facility, and needed some help in reorganising their space. Anita, Jack, Steve and Sheila joined 6 other volunteers in the old Tescos shop space. We were greeted by Debbie, one of the Foodshare trustees, and Vanessa who is currently on loan from Waitrose one day a week to contribute her retail expertise to the project. After explaining the tasks, we split into 2 teams and set about moving the contents of one set of shelves onto other shelves, moving shelving units and rearranging tables to become the new facility for preparing the Foodshare parcels. Then we moved crates of food into the appropriate places, ready for sorting. It proved to be a good physical workout, and with a can-do attitude we achieved a total transformation of the space in a short space of time - our contribution was cratefully received. We look forward to seeing the fruits of our labours.
