Pasta and rice and making things nice

Wed 26 Jan
Report written by Bethan Greenaway

This evening Goodgym descended on Oxford Mutual Aid to help in a flash-mob style!

We divided into three groups; one received training from Sarah (the Hall Manager) on packing food parcels and how the hall works, one group set to work divvying up massive bags of pasta and rice into portions for packages, and the final group bleached anything that stood still, giving some areas of the hall a much needed scrub.

As usual an hour and a half flew by and we left the hall looking much tidier and smelling nicely of disinfectant!

Four hardy Goodgymers then darted off to Meadow Lane and blasted up and down between the lampposts.

Welcome to Isi. Thanks for joining us and running too!

Boundary Brook Nature Park work party

Sat 12 Feb 14:00 pm
Boundary Brook Nature Park, Boundary Brook Road, Oxford, OX4 4AN
February follow up session

Boundary Brook Nature Park was created in 1990 when a group of community wildlife enthusiasts rescued a plot of disused allotments to carve out a wild space in the heart of East Oxford.

Featuring mixed woodland, meadow, a nature pond and butterfly glade, Boundary Brook is home to a rich variety of wildlife from birds and butterflies to frogs and foxes.

Oxford Urban Wildlife Group have asked for our help to dig out bramble roots so they can’t take hold again in the spring.

Please bring your own gardening gloves. All other tools will be provided.

The task meeting point is outside the gate to Boundary Brook Nature Park, which is on the cycle way just past Larkrise Primary School at the end of Boundary Brook Road.

Helping at Orinoco Scrap store, Take ii

Wed 9 Feb 18:00 pm
Richard Benson Hall, 276 Cowley Rd, Oxford, OX4 1UR
Getting them organised for their launch event

Orinoco is a charity who’s mission is to banish boredom and save the planet using creativity and play to inspire the reuse of materials.

Over its 25 year history, Orinoco has saved lorry loads of interesting resources from ending up in landfill. They collect suitable waste materials from businesses for potential reuse, including usable garden and workshop tools, small electrical items for repair.

The Orinoco Scrap store sells scrap items for art, crafts, play and creative projects as well as new art materials, refurbished tools and DIY stuff. The Oxford store used to be based in Wood Green but they had to move out last year and have just moved to new premises. Their full relaunch is on Saturday 19th February.

This week we will organise the store, price up stock and put more shelving up.

As always with indoor tasks, please wear a mask.

Meeting locations:
If you would like to run together to Orinoco meet at Richard Benson Hall, 276 Cowley Rd at 6pm. It’s about 1.25 miles to Orinoco. If you would prefer to meet at the location meet us at Templars Square, Pound Way, Oxford, OX4 3XH at 6:15pm. (Will update exact location before the session.)
