"That was a proper full-body workout!" ~ Tanya
We certainly put the "gym" into GoodGym at our visit to Ouseburn Trust today where despite the wet and cold conditions, six of us wrapped up (except Tom) and showed up to get the weekend off to a good start.
Brilliantly organised as always, task leader Dave met us with some clear tasks and tools at the ready.
Path clearing was on the agenda today and hopefully you can see from the photos what an amazing job we did in under an hour. This is an area that quickly becomes overgrown and it was definitely a battle against weeds, won!
Go and give Hazel a big cheer for her first ever GoodGym experience on such a terrible day, and to Manevasoa for her first Community Mission.
Join in with (hopefully drier) litter picking tomorrow if you can.
Ouseburn Trust would like our help to pick litter and clear paths to help keep the area clean and inviting.
Please come dressed for the weather as appropriate. Tasks will be decided on the day.
Meet on the grass under the bridge between the Ship Inn and Ouseburn Farm.
We were back at the Ouseburn Trust for the first time in a while due to covid. Dave the task owner had been informed of a lot of litter in the car park near the Cycle Hub. So off we went, from the ship container where we meet up and gathered tools, through Ouseburn to the Cycle Hub.
When we got to the Cycle Hub we were surprised how much rubbish there was considering that we did a litter pick there last month and cleared the whole car park. We filled a big bag of rubbish each, mostly with McDonald’s wrappers, cans, pizza boxes and other takeaway containers.
We walked back through Ouseburn carrying the heavy rubbish bags. We saw a swan sitting on the nest. It was really lovely to see the Ouseburn valley coming back to life with people outside the pubs and restaurants.
Well done everyone. An extra well done to Rae on reaching 10 good deeds!
