The Hole of the Century

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

An amazing 8 Goodgymmers gave up their Saturday afternoon to help prepare the Community Allotment for Spring and get it all spruced up for Theresa May's visit next week. We had a long list of tasks, so decided to divide and conquer. Angela and Rosie took on covering the raised bed frames with netting, and used their best sewing and patchwork skills to cover the frames to keep out the butterflies. Rachel, Gillian and Lisa weeded around the trees, raspberries, spinach and a couple of the beds. Meanwhile Sheila strimmed the grass Nicola and Matthew took on the compost area, moving the woody material to uncover some beautiful compost underneath. You could tell it was good stuff - it was full of wriggling pink worms. They used this to mulch around the newly- weeded areas. We were joined briefly by Daniel who passed by and came to join in - maybe he will join Goodgym in the future. Our last task was to dig a trial hole in an area that may be used for some fruit trees in the future, which Matthew and Nicola gamely took on. Once they had got past the bramble roots, they reported that the soil was quite easy to dig. We then discovered that this was Nicola's 100th Good Deed, which had crept under the radar. Congratulations, Nicola! Epic! We shall celebrate properly soon.

Most flooded of Waterways sessions

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

It was a nice clear morning to start the weekend with a Waterways session at the local Widbrook Common Stream.

The session started very positively with exchanging greetings as we pulled up the waders. Then Clara said: there is some stone in the boot and had to get out of waders again to get it out. She actually found Tesla keys (looked like a Tesla credit card to be honest) in one of wader's boot. Amy jumped into joy and screamed: my Tesla key!!

She had lost Tesla during her previous Waterways session.

Afterwards, we headed to the Widbrook stream and soon discovered that the meadow was flooded with the excess rain water and we had to walk through knee-deep water just to get to the starting point.

We relied on a pile of recently cut wood logs to put our bags and tried to establish where the firm gound stops and the stream bed starts.

Phil and Paul were wading in the stream and we helped from the river bank. The water flowed as did the conversations and laughs as we pulled the reeds out of the stream.

This felt like an adventurous session, where we are not quite sure where the safe ground is and it creates that feeling of what if we cannot get out of here?

At one point, Clara stepped a bit too far into the stream and started to get stuck in the mud. Amy was by her side and heard a very polite: Please can you help me?

This was the first Coffee break standing in the water and leveraging termos and biscuits on pallets positioned on the higher ground. Water logged Coffee break will certainly be a memory of 2024!!!

We reached the fence that marked the meadow's end and our task was completed for the day!

We slowly headed back across the flooded meadow and it felt as if the water level was even more higher than in the morning. Talk about that visual illusion!

Rich pickings

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Amy L (she/her)

Great turnout for our first 2024 Friday lunchtime litter pick! I was joined at Grenfell Park by Rachel, Juli, Sheila, Gurch, Jack, Jen, Anna, Steve, Jess, Tessa, Scarlett and Matthew. Great to see Gurch joining us for the first time. Meanwhile, Gillian, Georgeta, Celine, Sol and Diya tackled rubbish closer to their homes/work-places.

In and around Grenfell Park we found far more rubbish than we had expected. It was mostly bottles and cans, but we also found trousers, underwear, a drill, a bowl and spoon, a bicycle wheel, a shopping trolley, lots of old bank cards, a pound coin and even a twenty pound note!

We also had a lovely sociable time as we worked, catching up after the holidays, congratulating Sheila on her 500 (and two!?) good deeds, and planning the GoodGym water station at the Easter Ten race (put the 29th of March in your diary now).

Kudos to Jack, who wheeled the shopping trolley all the way back to the Maidenhead Community Centre and then onwards to Sainsbury's.

Georgeta, Gillian, Diya and Sol also found rich pickings in their neighbourhoods. Georgeta's most note-able finds were artificial flowers and a large broken plastic box, which she did well to carry to her bin. Gillian filled multiple bags and found a belt and pair of pants - possibly related? Diya was saddened by how much litter she found just a short distance from home - she was so sad that she didn't even take a selfie! Sol found a direct relationship between litter levels and closeness to the convenience store.

Well done team! Sad that there is so much litter out there, but we have made a big difference today.

Allotment Ant-ics

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

Kanika, Rachel, Lisa, Jessy and Sheila met at the community allotment on a beautiful warm evening. It was great to meet Jessy for her very first task. Welcome! We gave the allotment a good watering - it has grown so much in the past week! Meanwhile, others rescued the potato bed which had been covered in sand and debris from the path-laying activities. We then weeded the raised beds and noticed lots of ants running around, but they don't seem to be a problem. We also met with Vic from Men in Sheds who may be interested in using us to marshal at an upcoming music event. Watch this space!
