Hold it, flash, bang, wallop, what a brick-ture!

Nottingham Report written by Rachel Levick

Four Nottingham GoodGymers returned to the Sneinton Primary School Community Allotment on Sunday. On arrival, Kathryn explained that our latest task was to move some bricks that had been piled and dumped at the back of the allotment into a more orderly pile in the middle. Leah, Emma and Rachel L set to work on this. We were helped by Kathryn’s 5-year old daughter, Ava, who did a super job and enjoyed uncovering the hundreds of bugs and insects that had been living under the bricks.

Meanwhile, Rachel W and Kathryn worked on clearing another area at the back of the allotment. They managed to get through so much that at one point we lost them into the neighbouring plot!

Before downing tools, we had time for a quick litter pick of the outside path and a photo by our brick pile to finish off another great hour at the allotment. The sun even made an appearance which made us all feel very spring-like and glad that the early morning rain had not tempted us to cancel.

We were delighted to welcome Emma to her first GoodGym task – hope to see you again soon!

Ironing out a litter problem

Nottingham Report written by Nottingham runner

Apologies for the late report!

A fantastic bunch of eight GGers headed out for our first GoodGym After Dark of the year.

Headtorches and high-vis duly donned, we paired up to clear the park of litter with equipment and assistance from Emily from the Clean Champions.

While he didn't find two bags' worth of beer cans this time, Peter did manage to bag an ironing board and a traffic cone!

Also a special shoutout to Nina who joined us for the first time, bringing along a friend and demonstrating some excellent plogging enthusiasm!

Keep an eye out for our next mission with the Clean Champions, we might not even need headtorches soon!

Snooker Loopy at the Food Bank

Nottingham Report written by Nottingham runner

GoodGym Nottingham pooled its resources and turned up on cue to deal with an issue that had The Meadows Food Bank snookered (shoutout to Peter and Nigel for those epic puns).

Mark at the Food Bank had more heavy lifting for us to do, this time a giant, solid slate pool table that needed to be moved outside. It was no mean feat, but with Rachel's expertise from the theatre, we managed to get it from the main café out to the car park without so much as a scratch.

Next up was moving some pallets from one side of the car park to the other and getting them piled up neatly, and bringing a fridge out that had been taking up precious storage space.

Finally, it was time to restock the warehouse area. The Food Bank had recently been given a large grant it has used to buy a lot of food in bulk, so we followed Mark's list to bring the items most needed down from upstairs.

While all this was going on, we also had Amelia from NottsTV following us with a camera and interviewing us about GoodGym and the January Challenge (Nottingham hit its targets, amazing work!). Her piece should be on some time between 5:30 and 7:30 tomorrow, I'll post a link in the Facebook group and WhatsApp once it's up!

Thank you so much to everyone who showed up, looking forward to seeing you again soon!

Having a ball at the allotment

Nottingham Report written by Rachel Levick

For our first task of 2024, 11 GoodGymers made their way back to Sneinton Primary School Community Allotment on a chilly but sunny morning in Nottingham. The ever-cheerful Kathryn met us and set us to work on various tasks around the allotment.

Natalie, Rebecca F, Rebecca N and Oliver took on the overgrowth and brambles at the back of the garden, unearthing quite a few balls which had found their way in from the neighbouring school (much fun was had throwing these back!). Meanwhile Nigel and Rachel W did a sterling job digging for soil and filling one of the empty beds. Mark helped Kathryn reposition some of the wooden posts in the decking area before also tackling the brambles, and Serafina and Rachel L worked on weeding the beds and vegetable patches. Last, but by no means least, Leah and Rob took on litter picking in the hedges on the path outside the allotment, aided by our miniest GoodGym members, Carys and Milo who did a great job on their first task.

After a very productive hour, we downed tools and had some of Kathryn’s homemade treats – the Christmas pudding brownie was a revelation!

We were delighted to see Natalie, Rebecca, Oliver and Robert at their first GoodGym task. We also welcomed Mark and Rebecca who were visiting us from London where they are involved in GoodGym. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon!
