Lost and Found

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

6 Goodgymmers met at Spital Cemetery armed with loppers, saws and secateurs, ready to do battle with the ivy and bushes which have taken over some of the gravestones. We split into two groups, each taking on a different area. Sue, Matthew ans Scarlett cleared several graves being taken over by hawthorn. What an amazing job they did and they even found a gravestone belonging to Mr Jonathan Found. Rachel, Maggie and Sheila tackled 2 graves hidden behind yew, ivy and some nasty brambles. One gravestone belonged to 8-year old Walter Charles Seaward, who died in 1863. After clearing, these graves, we could see an ivy-covered column rising deep within the inner reaches of the undergrowth. We were able to clear some of the ivy and yew, enough to determine that it is a stone cross, but the rest will have to wait for the next session.

Branching Out

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

5 Goodgymers met with taskowner Karen and one other volunteer at Spital Cemetery. Sue had already done a recce and identified an area that needed some attention. Some Leylandii trees had totally overgrown some graves, hiding them completely from view. Matthew and Scarlett took on the area that Scarlett had been working on last time, whilst Maggie, Sue and Sheila tackled a different area. It was loppers to the fore, and before long we had cleared huge piles of branches. We uncovered several graves, which hadn't seen the light of day for quite some time. Great work, on such a warm day, and we filled 4 dumpy bags full of branches

What a performance!

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Mandy Driver

Thursday 6:15pm is GoodGym Windsor Night! ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Tonight we were doing a double bill with not one but two acts of kindness ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Helen ( who had just run the London Marathon ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ–๏ธ), Devon and Mandy met at The Binoy for a social run and Sue, Adam and Margaret (her debut GoodGym session ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป) met us at the task.

Then the show began โ€ฆ. Or was it a circus ๐Ÿคฃ

For our first act we met our task owner Anne at Busy Buttons (St Agnes Church) and Anne kindly showed us the church garden. We de-weeded the gravel drains, broke down and moved some old wooden furniture and other rubbish to the front of the church to be collected and swept/made tidy. Devon even did a bit of guttering clearance !

After the interval (as in us hot footing to the pathway near the church with our belongings) we got to work for our second task. We had done some work here in the dark but we had not quite finished it so we did that tonight. Devon and Adam had a great technique and were very neat and precise and polished. Mandy less so ๐Ÿคฃ she kept getting her lines all wrong ๐Ÿคฃ although Helen did keep her in check. Sue and Margaret attached the brambles. We filled three bags which is amazing in the time we had.

Soon it was time for the final curtain and we took a bow, gave ourselves an huge round of applause and made our way home.

Thank you all as always Windsor GGs ๐Ÿ‘‘ โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Revealing the '49ers

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

On a beautiful sunny morning, 6 Goodgymmers met up with Karen Davies at Spital Cemetery for one of their regular clean-up sessions. Although Margaret has been helping out at the cemetery for a long time, this was her first session under the Goodgym banner, so welcome! We set about clearing some huge piles of branches and grass left by an unknown person, who had been spotted clearing some graves so he could take an image of the inscriptions. Unfortunately he left a trail of devastation behind him, which needed clearing away. Sue and Margaret worked on one area, while Matthew, Scarlett, Sheila and Tessa worked in another. Matthew started chopping up the branches already left by the side of the headstone, putting them in a dumpy bag, while Sheila and Tessa tackled cutting down the remains of the bush. We realised as we worked, that it was the 75-year anniversary of the death of the lady who the grave belonged to - Bessie Nicholls died on 25th April 1949. The bush was a pyracantha, which was extremely prickly and difficult to deal with, but Matthew was up to the task and bashed and cajoled it into submission. We disturbed a beautiful yellow moth, which was later identified as a brimstone moth. Scarlett worked on a different grave, that of Edith Wilcocks who also died in 1949. By the end of the session, an incredible 6 dumpy bags had been filled, and are awaiting collection by Tivoli. Great work by the team to get the cemetery looking tidy again.
