2 task Wednesday!
A trio of GoodGymers headed into the Asian Cultural Centre to help with the fortnightly community meal supplied by the Oxford Homeless Project. They made tea and served cake to the guests who were eating, then helped clear up and chatted to the guests.
The rest of the team scattered across the streets of Cowley litter picking. We did a thorough clean up along Manzil Way, including ferreting under hedges for hard-to-reach items and a whizz around the playground. A breakaway group made it all the way to Morrel Avenue. We picked up 6 full sacks of trash.

As the title suggests, GoodGym were victorious in our quizzing efforts this week! We headed over to the Cape of Good Hope, and battled our way through rounds including 'Siblings', 'One Question Five Answers', and 'Food and Drink'. Even the mystery round on The Sex Pistols was no match, with myself and Henry correctly guessing all but one question. Who knew GoodGym and 70's punk had so much in common?
The grand prize was a £40 bar tab which we made short work of with an extra round of drinks and a few bags of crisps.
We'll have a break over Christmas/New Year/my holiday, but will be back at some point in 2024!

12 GoodGymers were up bright and early for a task at Boundary Brook Nature Park. We split into two groups to tackle raking, and digging for our old nemesis - the bramble root.
Boundary Brook have won a grant to plant some different species of grass and create a 'living library' for people to come and learn about them. Hopefully there will now be room for more grass and less bramble!
There was plenty of random conversation about the horrors of children's tv, how we could probably have our own GG band by now, and all about badgers (How big are they? How do you catch them? Just how accurate is the Animals of Farthing Wood?).
We also had congratulations for Louise on her 100th task!
