Trowels and Tribulations - Shree-mendous!

Bristol Report written by Melanie Young (she/her)

It's ages since we had over 20 red t-shirts out on the streets of Bristol but GoodGymmers far and wide were drawn in by the lure of good weather, one of our favourite tasks and multiple offers of cake.

There seemed to be a lot of Sarahs and Richards at roll call but the backmarkers, Jenny and Vaguely Northern Darren had a pretty good idea how many runners were in front of them as Richard B navigated a route avoiding the increasing number of closed bridges currently on offer in Bristol.

We picked up some of the GoodGymmers who'd been stranded by the lack of walkable/ runnable bridges, very Pied Piper but without the music and demands for payment.

Ever enthusiastic, Ruth was awaiting our arrival at the school and had multiple tools available for multiple tasks.

Trowels were grabbed by the Front Planter team to weed out all the plants EXCEPT THE GOOSEBERRY BUSHES, breaking in the fibreboard-like compost as well as some more traditional bagged stuff - Richard G showing some amazing Double Trowel techniques whilst Sarah, Katie and Tim crushed compost, Richard B, Sara and Lexi kept a check on who was Niamh (the owner of the key card) to refill the very elegant watering cans to dampen the soil. It was brilliant to see Charlene pop in whilst she was walking her very energetic dog, holding on with her good arm and now able to start reducing the time she has to wear a brace on the poorly arm.

Meanwhile, inside the Niamh-gate, Art and Paul were playing with sand and brushes in the double height Wendy house to ensure the area was as tidy as can be.

Into the bike sheds with super-sweeps Clo, Alice (being very brave with her blended thumb), Abby and Jenny getting ready for the start of term, whilst the specialist apple-picker collective made for the orchard to harvest the abundance of apples - Russ was predictably quick up the ladder and as far into the tree as possible whilst Maria, Matt, Laura, Fii, Janka and Vaguely Northern Darren tried to coax apples out of the tree and catch them before they could hit the ground and spoil. Shree, possibly her last GoodGym group run before her year in Oz, seemed to be in a lot of photos whilst wandering around with a tub of chocolates - the joy of everything not melting as soon as you step outside!

After weightlifting the crates of apples back to the school building and being able to take some to carry home, Ruth produced a fantastic walnut and chocolate cake to reward the hard work of the team and we tried to take a fantastic panorama photo with a bit of success.

We escaped through the gate in the car park for the run back to Queen Square where Jenny refused to let Shree "pop in to the loo" before stretches as we had the very important business of presenting her 171 not out GoodGym t-shirt to take on her travels.

Even more chatting back at Club Haus in workout where we enjoyed drinks, chocolates and Jenny's vegan rocky road cake - topping off a pretty perfect evening.

Planty of fun

Bristol Report written by Alice Dalrymple

Shree and I met and watered the very thirsty plants living around the Marlborough steps. It's so lovely to get out on our lunch break and get in a good deed in the sunshine. We go to water the plants every other Wednesday - come and join us!

It's amazing water can do when you put your mind to it

Bristol Report written by Shreena Parmar

Unfortunately Alice was unwell so could not make it (get well soon Alice). Luckily Jason was working nearby and was able to come for the midweek lunchtime session, thanks Jason. The Marlborough Hill steps was renovated by the Bristol Bid team which involved making a grey concrete area colourful with nice paintwork and planters. We filled up the watering cans, watered the plants and then went back to work (and we happen to work at the same place!)

Water better way to spend a lunch break

Bristol Report written by Alice Dalrymple

Shree and I headed to the Marlborough Hill steps to water the wild flowers that have been sown there and the lovely planters that have been installed. This was a renovation project was completed by the Bristol BID team to liven up a space which was previously very grey and sad! We will be going every 2 weeks (come and join us?) on a Wednesday to water the plants and seeds, hopefully by the end of Summer the area will be in full bloom.
