Stump for Joy, Clover the Moon

Cardiff Report written by Michael

What a night that was as a good 12 of the goodgym crew arrived eager to help out at this week's task. The gang, made up of joggers, walkers and a cyclist meeting us directly there.....All are welcome.

We were back to our friends for the first time this year at St. Edwards this evening, to do work in the Church grounds in support of Forget Me Not Cafe and the Gardening as Therapy Project.

Our Tasks

  • Stripping Christmas tree branches
  • Scattering Clover Seeds


Our area activator Michael has recently started looking into rewilding spaces and as such managed to get quite a few different varieties of seeds to help biodiversity. Knowing of the project, we offered some up to Kathie who was very happy to accept as part of their wildflower meadow. Our scattering crew, lit for the evening by Emma, were Dylan and Emily.

Whilst the rest of the team got to work as choppers, chippers and snippers - getting the stump! It was short work on the task as we filled the green waste bags ready for the council to collect and took the stump around to the front of the building. The stump (in case you were wondering) is going to be repurposed inside the Church for an Easter Cross.

A quick tidy up and group photo and it was time to head back, where most of the group were heading off for bottomless pancakes.

Join us next week as we head over to Samye - sign up HERE

Bramble in the Jungle

Cardiff Report written by Michael

On a very windy evening 11 goodgymers went to help a local charity. It was blustering on the run, but not so bad when the wind was behind you!

Michael arrived with a bag of litter pickers, just because. They are almost becoming part of the Cardiff goodgym kit now.

Tonight we hit our target for the January Challenge of 100 deeds. Well done everyone, and let’s see where we can get too with the remaining days in January. We are now on 107

Smashed it

Tonight we were heading around the back at the wonderful Cwtch Together to tackle the overgrown brambles and the weeds in the walkway. It had been nearly a year since we undertook this task last, and at first glance it seemed unachievable. But goodgymers will NOT be beaten.

Michael and Sophie were first in, sweeping the brambles away with legs, cutting the bases and sweeping out walkway. Next in were the Dylans, the Lucys, Jonathan and Emma. The brambles were cut quicker than they could be bagged, a Buddleia was also removed before it grew back too much. Flo, Martin and Ben had gotten to work in the walkway, clearing away the 'weeds'.

After 30 hard minutes of volunteering, it was time to put the tools away and get a group photo before heading back.

An interesting conversation at out post run social as one of the team was taken with a crisp bag - yes, you have read that right. Brown Bag crisps (other brands are available) use the same letter B for two words, WOW amazing.

This led to the conversation of how to make the colour Brown, on to Primary colors (or not), secondary colors etc. So, to put an end to the debate

Litter Sweet Symphony

Cardiff Report written by Michael

16 goodgymers were ready to clean those streets, no cold weather was going to stop us.

We had committed to a litter pick and a litter pick we would do! It was two group tonight, a litter picking walking crew and the runners plogging and litter picking too. Flo led the walking group around the 'Diff, all wrapped up warm and ready for action. Michael took the runners a little longer, keeping them warm as they got a good pace on. After a few kilometers the litter bags came out and the run became a plog. Then it slowed to a litter pick for a short time, the bags were left at a council bin and it was the final run back to meet the walkers for a group photo.

A good night as 9 bags of rubbish have been removed from the streets. #Love Where You Live

RUBBLE IN PARADISE

Cardiff Report written by Michael

On a night where the air was biting at our ankles, an impressive 13 goodgymers braved the weather for the Cardiff January Challenge.

We were back to the Samye Foundation, our last visit was decorating for Xmas... except for Michael and Darren who managed to pop along for their Fayre. Tonight would be very different though, and would soon warm up the group.

We were in three groups tonight, the walkers led by Michael, the runners led by Darren and Adam and the third group, still running but a shorter distance.

We arrived and got straight to work, no standing still in these temperatures. The 3 Xmas trees had to go back into the loft, there were tables and chairs to rearrange, bags and bags of rubble, wheelbarrows of rubbish and an array of tile bits to pick up.

Out came the lights and gloves for safety, we split into groups and got busy, so busy in fact that we managed to finish off the tasks with enough time to get a bit of vacuuming done too.

Tools down, warm up.

We popped inside for a catch up and some snacks, more water (hydration is important even in the cold).

We are nicely on track for our target of 100 deeds in January, but a few more km needed, so don’t forget to get Strava going on your walks, runs or bike rides. NEXT week we will be splitting into ploggers and litter pickers to tackle the City Centre. Get signed up here. We are also heading for food afterwards but need to book so you will have to sign up to this too
