Buggingham palace is ready for you, your mothesty

Saturday 27th January

Written by Abby (she/her)

Six goodgymmers collected all the gathered materials and fitted out our bug hotel/palace.

Dave was packing in all of Phil Schofield’s (the rabbit) fur for the mice to enjoy. While Yvonne, Jane and Lynn prepped and cut all the bamboo canes to the correct size.

Judy had collected lots of material from her dog walks and so we ended up with a real beauty in the end.

A 2024 construction with a maximalist interior and exterior. Hopefully ready for a 5* rating on air bee n bee.

It's Lovely Weather For A Sleigh Ride Together With You!

Wednesday 6th December 2023

Written by Jen Stoneham

We had a slightly different task for our Group Run this evening - GoodGymers transformed into Santa's Little Elves and escorted the big man himself on a Sleigh Ride around Baffins.

Our task was to knock on doors to let local families know Santa was on his way and hand out sweets, as well as offering a bucket for donations for Baffins Pond Association. The local community were incredibly generous and so many families came out to see the magic.

It was lovely to be part of something so very magical - even for a Grinch like me!

Having A Bauble!

Wednesday 22nd November 2023

Written by Jen Stoneham

Our first festive task of this season brought a little bit of joy to plenty of GoodGymers this evening. We joined volunteers at Baffins Pond Association to put up the Christmas Decorations around the compound.

Everyone got in the spirit and there were plenty of super Christmas jumpers, hats and leggings on display.

Wilson's commitment to detail extended to all of the little statues in the compound who are now sporting very dapper Christmas bow-ties!

The compound looked absolutely fantastic by the time we were done - Christmas basically threw up over Baffins Pond this evening.

Animal Magic Mushrooms

Saturday 21st October 2023

Written by Dave Moore

The three of us spent a surprisingly sunny morning picking around Baffins Pond. There was flora and fauna a-plenty for our nature enjoyment - including Big Fat Squirrel.

Starting in the woods to be greeted by inquisitive squirrels and a beautiful white cat. Before checking on how the massive mushroom was doing.

Pleasantly, not a massive amount of rubbish to collect. Jen found a soy sauce fish, sadly no sushi to go with it. Jane tried a game of catch but only half the ball remained so it wasn't easy!! Finally a joint effort rescued the traffic cone that BPA told us has been doing the rounds of the wetlands!
