The crunchie gravel hunt

Bristol Report written by Melanie Young (she/her)

Weren't we the lucky ones with a weather forecast updating from thunder and lightening to no rain at all! I'm pretty sure this is also why our numbers swelled from 5 sign ups at midday to 13 when we were arriving in Queen Square, sadly minus Vaguely Northern Darren as he was poorly. But everyone there had signed up, so Melanie didn't need to hunt for any email addresses, revealing embarrassing nick names when personal email addresses were created!

It was great having very experienced GoodGymmers (from back when it all began in Bristol) alongside our newer members and this was a firs time to Brunswick Cemetery for Freya, James and Bruce, with all the health and safety warnings that are needed.

Paul led his band of runners who arrived just as the walkers were staring to take up tools with our target being the disappearing (from being found by GoodGym) spiral path, with errant weeds to remove edges to be sought, teams taking on the challenge at the top, middle and bottom of the spiral whilst Di from the Friends group continued the dogwood-bindweed clearance and Bruce tried his hand (and bare arms and legs) at nettle-bindweed clearing until it all got a bit too tingly.

Someone had nicked the empty dumpy sack we'd hidden in the park just a couple of hours earlier, so we were back to black sacks and the rubble bags pre-purchased in a Brilliant Exhibition of Forward Planning (BEFP). And the rubble bags are a nice blue colour, so that's all good.

Everyone was very industrious as we even saw a bit of blue sky celebrating our achievements at, yes, finding edges and making the gravel look much more shiny, with top stomping by Freya who'd been practising the previous week in Totterdown.

When we'd had enough (running late as we're SO committed), we headed back to Workout and ClubHaus for our July GoodGym Eats whilst supporting Valè through the difficulties of France's early goal against Spain in the men's Euro 2024 semi-final, ordered some lovely burgers despite ClubHaus being a bit busy with football fans and continued the general chat about Very Important Things, sat outside by the water.

We really are very lucky people (vlp).

Let’s call the hole thing off?

Bristol Report written by Melanie Young (she/her)

Let the chips fall where they may I hear them say. At the end of the day we made our way

To Totterdown to dig a hole That was the goal

No hole to dig It was already quite big

Chipping was laid Water was sprayed

Trees in the ground That’s where they’re found

Soil was shifted Our spirits lifted

Brambles trimmed on the bank, what rhymes with bank? I've drawn a blank...

The task was done That was fun 🙂

Too-mulch-to-us

Bristol Report written by Melanie Young (she/her)

As well as lots of good deeding, the group run was once again the venue for deep philosophical debate involving the past tense of strimming and therefore the present tense of strumming. Hot topics indeed for the four walkers to start debating whilst the runners, led by Richard B, snuck (sneaked?) in a harbour loop before arriving at the Community Garden of Redcliffe Children's Centre.

We think the tasks were * top soil onto 8 of the planters after weeding * woodchip onto 6 tree planters and top of 8 weeded, top-soiled planters * strimming raked * litter picked * path weeds hoe-d * path swept * tools placed in school playground WITHOUT PLAYING ON THE ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND * key returned * padlock locked

The main issue was remembering all the tasks...

It was a bit of a step workout as GoodGymmers opted to climb over the seating bench rather than via the highly secure gate, with Small Spade or trowels full of woodchip whilst the Big Spades, mainly moved top soil within the gated garden to the planters. There was quite a lot of it.

The Centre can now continue their work with UWE's Bee-line to increase pollen for pollinators across the city to encourage, erm, bees. Bristol Bees.

Having avoided being burned by lit cigarettes discarded from the balconies and windows above, and only one GoodGymmer being hit by spittle from above (fortunately onto glasses not straight into an eye, the area was tidy until kids started throwing litter from a balcony - hopefully they'll join in with the Community Garden becoming a lively space to spend time.

More litter was picked (pucked?) on the way back to the bit of Queen Square we could still see whilst the Comedy Garden takes place. Then the beat bit of all - the found Maths Word Search challenge whilst we carried on chatting at Club Haus in Workout.

Anyone know that film - the one with the man in the hat and the doors?

Shears to the Northern Slopes

Bristol Report written by Bristol runner

OVERGROWN!!!!!

The crazy mix of sunshine and showers lately has meant the Northern Slopes has become quite overgrown. This meant our job today involved a lot of snipping. Armed with shears and things that were almost shears we set to work. There was also the usual build up of cider cans and other paraphernalia that Emma set to work clearing with great gusto.

After an hour we called time and downed tools. Just time for a freddo or a rocky road before making our way. A lovely morning à la carte.

Until next time…
