An Awesome Foursome

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

Lisa, Angela and Sheila helped out at Nature's Haven, joined a little bit later by Roberta after she had finished her day's work. Today was a very exciting day. After all the shrub cutting, shredding, root extraction and ground digging over the last few weeks by Goodgymmers and other volunteers, we actually got to plant some fruit trees! The ground was raked over, and some very special fertiliser from an exclusive restaurant was applied, and we were ready to go. Angela and Lisa dug three deep holes, and planted three cordon apple trees. After some consultation about the precise positioning, the fourth hole was dug and planted with a step-over apple tree. What an awesome foursome! We then planted some perennials and bluebells as groundcover between the trees. We gave them all a good watering, and stood back to admire our work. It was great to see the transformation of this area, and look forward to some scrumping in the future!

A task of two halves

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

Last night, 10 Goodgymers met at the Community Centre for a pre-match pep talk before heading off to tackle tasks awaiting us at Holyport FC.

Once there, we split into two teams, armed ourselves with shovels and paintbrushes (not at the same time, although I’d like to see what that task would be) and the game began!

Team Shingle was well practiced at making pothills out of mountains from our previous matches here. They managed to get rid of two piles of shingle by hiding them in potholes along the access road to the pitches, before the final whistle was blown.

Meanwhile, it was a total eclipse of the fence as Team Painters covered a lot of ground (and fences), but finally won the day when the paint went in off the woodwork to seal the victory with a dazzling display of beautiful brushwork.

There was no need to go into overtime, even though we’d probably have like to - by the end of the night, the match was won by both teams. Another three points to Goodgym, which we were all over the moon about!

Ready, Shreddie, Go!

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

Angela and Sheila helped out at Nature's Haven this afternoon. A corporate team had been in and cut down lots of the shrubs from the area due to be planted up with some new fruit trees. Result - loads of branches that needed shredding. So, Goodgym to the rescue! Using Sheila's shredder, we fed it constantly, and it chomped its way through loads of material. The shreddings are destined for the compost heap and for mulching areas between the raised beds

Smarty pants

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Amy L (she/her)

What an amazing turnout for this evening's session to help at Wessex Primary School, particularly considering we didn't meet in our usual start location. Just when I thought I knew how many we were, more would arrive! Maybe we could call ourselves the Countless of Wessex?

A very warm welcome to Helen, Rachel, Jennie and Alison, who joined us from the school community. It was also great to meet Sion and Sam, who Jenni invited from Reading to find out all about this weird and wonderful thing called GoodGym. We hope you can launch in your area soon - we'll definitely come and visit when you do!

A great big cheer for Taskforce member Louise, who organised our task for this evening and recruited many of our newbies from the school community. Top marks and a gold star for you!

Many thanks also to Mr Beaven and Mrs Pope, who welcomed us to the school, treated us to some jelly babies and stuck around until the end. We talked about a return visit later in the year to help with pond area...can't wait!

During the first part of the session lots of us went for a run or walk around Cox Green. The walkers did a scenic 2km (we passed not one but two Co-ops!) loop, and the lucky runners did similar but with a few extra back and forths to give the walkers time to catch up. This helped us to arrive at the task all warmed up and ready for action.

Lou did a great job of rapidly dishing out tasks to eager GoodGymers, and soon enough everyone was busy. Jennie, Alison, Georgeta, Rachel, Gillian and Helen bravely tackled brambles in a nature area, Adam, Clara, Jenni and Chris bravely tackled brambles next to a fence and Angela and Sara made speedy work of sawing down an overgrown shrub.

Everyone else focused on an area in the middle, where jobs included emptying a raised bed of plants (behaving like locusts), sanding a fence and bench, and painting the fence. An intriguing mix of small toys was also uncovered in the process.

Many hands made the to do list disappear fast. Lou has already received a big thank you from Mrs Corbett, who teaches in the area where we were working. She plans to take the children out first thing to admire our work.

So why the reference to smarty pants? Are we calling Lou a smarty pants because she organised such a bumper evening? Or is Jenni a smarty pants for bringing her Reading homies? Maybe we're all smarty pants for going back to school? Or should that be smarty 'paints' because of the awesome job the painters did blitzing the fence?

Well all of these would be excellent guesses, and quite true, but no. The title pun celebrates the GoodGymer who got paint on her trousers and didn't want to get it on the seats in my car, so had the bright idea to remove her trousers. I couldn't park right outside her house, so (looking quite a lot like an Olympic track star) she did a sprint finish down the road in her pants. What a memorable evening!
