Take a leaf(let) out of myโ€ฆbag

Southampton Report written by Ellie (She/her)

We split into two teams this evening to maximise our leaflet delivery potential. We welcomed newbie Claire to Team 1 with Wilson and Leszek. They headed off to complete streets on the right hand side to start with while Team 2, Janet and myself, headed to the left. Janet suggested we head to the pub while waiting for Team 1 to return from squirrelling away leaflets on Squirrel Drive, but they caught us up too quick! Reunited we completed the final street together. It was quite small and with many hands we think we achieved a record time to leaflet a street in about 2 minutes! So many streets, so little time so we hope to return again this month to complete the job. Great work everyone.

I dink there is p on this brick.....๐Ÿ˜œ

Southampton Report written by Wilson

Our task this evening was to clean bricks! It was fun from the start with Richard demonstrating how clean we needed to clean the bricks, (I'm sure he had picked an easy one!) Some important things to note were how to clean the "P" on a brick and how to decide if a dink was just a dink!

Ellie and Hannah got to work by collecting the bricks from the big pile and wheelbarrowing them up to the two cleaning stations

Judy, Val, Sarah, Amanda and Wilson were armed with tools at their cleaning tables, ready to scrape and remove mortar and paint from the bricks. (Not as easy as Richard made it look)

We welcomed a new volunteer Leszek to the task this evening, after helping with a task on Sunday it was great to see him join us for our Monday session. Together with Janet and Helen he helped in the shop to dismantle parts of the counter and treat some of the wooden worktop.

Once the work in the shop was complete the whole team got stuck into brick cleaning.

The time whizzed by and the hour passed quickly. We managed to clean 58 bricks!

Once cleaned up, used bricks have a monetary value of 60p each, the farm will sell the bricks to a local reclamation company.

We dink we only made a slight dink in the pile of bricks so we will be back soon for a Saturday session to do some more!

Full of beans!

Southampton Report written by Ellie (She/her)

Well done to everyone who added some extra weight to their runs, walks and cycles this evening with all the food bank donations. It was a great finish to our January challenge and so nice to see so many of you at the pub for our first social of 2024.

We Eggceeded Eggpectations

Southampton Report written by Wilson

GoodGym Southampton collected 25 eggboxes for Southampton City Farm, not quite as many as GoodGym Portsmouth (doh, i was hoping Southampton would get the most!)

The farm were super pleased and said they would keep them going for a loooooong time ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ˜Š

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Southampton Report written by Lauren

An absolutely stellar team of 15 goodgymers came together at the farm to help tackle a hefty task Tom the farm manager had set us.

We had a fantastic time with excellent support from our buddies at Goodgym Portsmouth who had travelled to help out (and also partly to see the goats and sheep) ๐Ÿ˜Š

Our task for the evening was to lay a new path in the garden area of the farm using woodchip the farm had had donated for use. The woodchip was outside in the carpark and the garden was located a very nice distance away! We quickly split up with different people covering different tasks, Wilson and Val helped muster the troops at the woodchip end, shovelling large quantities of woodchip into wheelbarrows. A notable mention goes to Lauren a newbie who had travelled from Portsmouth for her first session and who got stuck straight in! Lovely to meet you Lauren!

At the other end of the farm we had Vicki and Judy in charge of raking over the incoming woodchip onto the new path.

The rest of us were on transportation duties ensuring the wheelbarrows made it safely to the other end. It was quite the workout! I clocked 2 miles alone in running up and down with a heavy wheelbarrow.

Ellie was quite literally our guiding light making sure the paths were well lit and also got stuck in with woodchip shovelling.

Tom and his team were pleasantly surprised how much many hands make light work. The farm volunteers were saying this task would have taken them a week. With a team effort we were all done in 45 minutes and able to get some cuddles in with the sheep as a reward.

We look forward to next month!

Fast farm flyering!

Southampton Report written by Lauren

Before our planned session at the farm Ellie,Wilson,Janet and Lauren got together for an hour to distribute the remaining leaflets from the ones we had from our previous leafleting session for the farm. We managed to cover two local roads and quickly let 100 local residents know the good word about Southampton City Farm in 45 minutes. Super speedy!
