Headline News- GG unearth an archaeologists dream..... or was it just a dream?!

What an exciting evening it turned out to be.. but lets first rewind.....

We met up at one of our favourite tasks, St Botolphs Church garden with our task hosts for the evening Val and Rik supported by Sue and Peter who provide many of the tools and who are the primary volunteers to neighbouring Heene Cemetery.

After a whats app shout earlier today ( thank you ! ) 7 of us turned out tonight in anticipation of making a pallet compost fence. However with a bit more preparation needed for this, the task took, another, and most surprising turn of events!
The main focus tonight ,apart from Paul pruning his tree (take a look at the photos) was clearing, shovelling and leveling the compost area ready to make the aforementioned pallet fence.

Tonight was fun ! with lively banter and chattering and with a fair bit of 'encouragement' or in other words 'work harder' we all pitched efforts to sift and sort and shift the soil and ditch the debris.

With just 15 minutes to go we unearthed a big surprise... Our spades hit concrete and the questions, together with our imagination went wild !

Was it an ancient burial site ? Was it a pot of gold ? Or maybe a single grave? Was it an old mill stone ?

Duncan went to his phone for answers Sarah to her Dad and Sue to her local archaeologist friend. There were theories, speculation and excitement pouring out of us. Had we, finally, made a landmark discovery? and who would get the breaking news first ? Would it be the Herald or Paul Holden ?!!

Sarah's Dad burst our bubble first. he said its likely it was the base for a flag or similar. Duncan did some great research and came up with evidence of an old mills stone and John added that maybe it was horse powered. This made my heart sing and I was a true believer until Sue emailed feedback from her archaeologist friend who said its most likely to be footings for a notice board ! Lol

Oh how the mighty fall...

However we do love a bit of excitement at GG and today was exciting !

Have a great week

From the South Downs to the Sea - Good Luck Anne

Another sunny balmy Monday evening and its another GG night.

This evening we welcomed a lovely group of GGymers to Gillybean little bit of heaven at the Southdowns Worthing Leisure centre.

Tonight it was all about weeding !

Gillybean, Belinda and Sarahteamed up with Rickyand John to weed along the outside fence.

Anne Tamsin and I got down low to the basics of weeding the patio paving stones with a plethora of weeds in the cracks!

Sarah and Gill switched to the garden to work their magic whilst Ricky kept wrestling with the pesky trailing fence weeds.

I think its fair to say we all enjoyed a really nice chat with each other tonight whilst working wonders in the garden together planning our next few socials!

See you all at St Botolphs next week where there will be a run / walk option.

And finally

Huge love and good luck to Anne for her ultra event - Run To The Sea Brighton this Saturday - we cant wait to hear all about it ....

A bakers dozen

What a fabulous turn out it was this evening with 13, yes 13 turning out on a beautiful Spring evening at one of our favourite tasks at St Botolphs Church garden. Combine our hosts Rik and Val together with our 2 friends from Heene Cemetery, Sue and Peter and we were quite a force to be reckoned with!

Special mention to Sarah who is a regular GoodGymer since January 2018 and moved to Worthing last year from London. This is Sarah's 3rd task in Worthing but her first with me so really good to have a brief chat and run with her.

Our tasks tonight were

  • ' Leave my tree a lone ' ( as per Paul's instructions as he couldn't make tonight! )
  • Sort out and re order the compost heap in preparation of making a wattle fence.
  • Weed , fertilise and plant out the wild flower seedlings around the font rock garden area.

Lucy, Duncan, Sue, Barbara , Belinda and Ricky worked on the weeding of the font rockery area. Take a look at Belinda before and after photos - they illustrate the story perfectly! Shout out to Rosalind who worked on shuttle runs with the amazing 100% organic fertiliser that has been cultivated over several years!

Meanwhile, John, Gill, Sarah, Ros and Anne worked out separating the tree branches together with Val.

Peter and Rik were doing a great job with weeding and sweeping around the edge of the church and I enjoyed a great chat with them before snapping them in action.

It was tools down for 8 of us after we were joined by Tamsin and headed off for a 2.5k stunning run down to the sea and along the prom.

When we got back, it was tools down for everyone until we return on 16th May to continue with work on the new composting area and wattle fence.

Don't forget Duncan's city nature community mission https://www.goodgym.org/happenings/city-nature-challenge and Gills regular Wednesday evening task at Worthing Leisure Centre https://www.goodgym.org/happenings/pruning-and-tidying-the-garden-area-7539d27e-b427-47e5-b5e0-ea0daae4ed84

Next week we will at Kamelia Kids on Tuesday 3rd May ( just a one off change of day) to give them a hand before their open day on 7th May.

See you all soon and enjoy your bank holiday weekend :)

No slacking , more puffing (Jemmie's motivational quote for the evening)

On a beautiful warm March evening we walked/ ran over to one of our favourite tasks at Bugcycle Garden in Beach House Gardens. This community project is run by Creative Waves, aka Nadia and Nessie.

It was so great to have a lovely light, still evening to work with after all the dark winter evenings.

Roll of honour tonight was as follows John,Ricky, Paul, Anne ,Belinda,Gillybean,DuncanRosalind, Paula and last but not least Tamsin with special mini GoodGymer Jemmie !

We had a variety of tasks including Paul's planting a large palm like shrub ( see the before and after photos) . Nadia also asked us to clear the 'lounge ' area where there were piles of bricks and wood and rubbish that needed moving.

There was also a lot of weeding and watering done together with a wheelbarrow run to the green bin!

Lapping it up

Jemmie was keen to get the group doing some fitness so together with Anne, Ros and Mum, Tamsin she led the group on a lap of the park. Whilst the 3 of them continued on another lap, Jemmie and I plotted a fitness game to keep the group busy on their return. This comprised of a variety of functional body weight exercises including step ups, lunges, jumping jacks, shuttle runs and jump squats.

*Need to run home for a leek (Paul's quote of the evening) *

Before we knew it the evening was over and we managed to get a great group photo. Nadia invited us to help ourselves to the leeks that we had dug up to take home and cook.

Next week we will take a break for the bank holiday but Gill we be working her magic at Worthing leisure Centre this Wednesday.

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter and bank holiday weekend.
