Here be Dragons

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

"Is it a swimming cap or a baby bib?"
"Do you categorise dungarees as top half clothing or bottom half clothing?"
"Is a scarf clothing or an accessory?"

It was the important life questions occupying us last night as we sorted and categorised donations for the OX4 Food Crew Community Party pre-loved market.

The OX4 Food Crew is an alliance of 9 grassroots organisations who have come together to help tackle food insecurity in OX4. They are having their first ever Community Party on Friday afternoon, and one part of that will be a stall selling pre-loved items to raise money for OX4 Food project.

GoodGym were asked to sort through the donated items, check them over for safety/cleanliness and categorise them.

As always, many hands make light work of big tasks, and we managed to finish by 7pm and have a lovely 4 mile run post-task.

The OX4 Community Party is taking place on Friday 16th February, 2:30-4:30pm at the Old Schoolhouse on Hertford Street, OX4 3AJ.

Going for broke

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

Take 11 GoodGymers, give them 2 hours, 5 cedar trees, dozens of bulbs, and a collection of shrubs.

Et voila..,ground and the fence got cleared of ivy, holes were dug and cedar trees planted, spring bulbs got in the ground, half a dozen holly and privet shrubs were planted, plenty of tennis balls unearthed.

The casualties: one fork broken in half (Ben doesn't know his own strength!), one eye had an argument with a holly bush (thanks to Steve for his expert eye wash skills).

Welcome to GoodGym Amy.

Star-tling what you find when litter picking

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

Last night we went WEST out of our normal East Oxford/Marston stamping ground. We know there are some litter hot spots on and around the Botley Road, and the challenge is to time our litter picks there when the undergrowth is not too dense but the river isn't in flood.

Our clean up crew divided into 2 teams with one heading towards the grot spots along the river, and the other heading to Oatlands Recreation Ground. Some exceptional litter finds were uncovered, from items of clothing to car registration plates, a fire extinguisher, cuddly emoji star, an Unidentified Netty Object (is it a hammock? Is it a fishing net?), but no papier maché spear this time.

Snacks were had to celebrate Bethan's 21st-and-a-bit birthday, and then we scattered into the night feeling just a little bit smug and virtuous for our clean up efforts.

Lovely to have a GG tourist join us from Southampton tonight. Good to meet you Ellie!

P-p-p-pick up a pizza

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

We don't litter pick for the free pizza, but it sure helps!

Last night we set out to litter pick the Marston cycle path along Marston Ferry Road. It's an area which has been reported to us in the past so it has been on our radar, but this was our first attempt to clean it up.

With a full team of GoodGymers we were able to divide into 3 teams and fan out into different areas of Marston to litter pick. We sent a group out along the Oxford Road, another over to Marsh Lane, and the 3rd group headed up the cycle path. Although during our initial recce the area had seemed fairly clean, we were soon picking up plenty of fast food wrappers, cigarette butts, drinks cans, and even someone's airpods (which we will try to reunite with the owner if they ever dry out). Ellie's group win GoodGymers of the week award for litterpicking outside the pizza shop (very mucky) and getting gifted a large pizza as thanks - they were even kind enough to bring it back to share with the whole group!

Welcome to GoodGym Kim, and also Remy the pup!
