Tell you what we want, what we wheely, wheely want…

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

...is wheelchair accessible paths around the nature park. So who better to shovel and barrow 10 tonnes of gravel to make the dream a reality than GoodGym?!

We are actually quite the pros at this task, having created the current network of wheelchair accessible paths around Boundary Brook Nature Park 2 years ago. Those paths stood up to the wettest of winters pretty well, showing up the need to link up some other areas to the network. Tonight we started to build the path to the bird hide (a project we also had a hand in). We certainly got our step count up and a decent upper body work out pushing gravel all across the site to the furthest point!

There might be some sore arms in the morning, but also pride in what we managed to get done.

Watch the Countryfile episode featuring Boundary Brook Nature Park and Wytham Woods here.

Goody two (missing) shoes

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

Some days everything falls into place seamlessly and life appears frictionless...Yesterday was not one of those days.

With missing running shoes, forgotten gardening gloves, and rush hour traffic all conspiring against us (and that was just me), we were not off to the most auspicious start. However, things took a turn for the better once we actually made it to the task: We found orchard triangle had been mown since our last visit so was less of a jungle, and we could get to the plants along the railings to weed and mulch. Also less long grass = fewer bitey bugs; a definite bonus!

We weeded, chatted, spread wood chip, tried to rescue a sad-looking rhubarb plant, rehomed snails, and generally improved the growing conditions for the numerous loganberry, raspberry and blackcurrant plants. We're looking forward to tasting our first loganberries come harvest time.

Raking it in

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

We scythed up a storm at Aston's Eyot last night. Working our way along and beyond the fence we built last summer we cut a swathe through the nettles, raking them out as we went to let light get through and hopefully give some other plants a chance. Forming a scythe-rake-remove production line we were a pretty efficient work crew! Some veteran GoodGymers had their first go at scything, plus we were pleased to welcome 2 new GoodGymers to the crew: Welcome to GoodGym Weronika and Eleftherios.

Its BadGym - murder, mime, and m-dubious drawing skills

Oxford Report written by Emma

10 Goodgymers braved the rain for a return to the Thirsty Meeples board game cafe. Despite being quite a large group we managed to find three different games we could all play - Moniker (a mix of charades, one word descriptions, and mime), Fake Artist (the dubious drawing skills), and Deception (figuring out whodunnit). We discovered Colin the Caterpillar is surprisingly hard to draw, there are many ways to commit murder in parks and toilets, and not everyone has a very convincing poker face.

Thank you to everyone for joining these social sessions during the wintery months, any suggestions for more fair-weather options, let me know!
