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!

Last night we finished our 'spring' clean of the Oxford Mutual Aid foodbank.
Throughout autumn and winter we deep clean the main hall one section per month, and a do a thorough clean and sort of the kitchen every month. We've clearly got pretty efficient at this now, as we finished the task last night; a month ahead of schedule!

Last night we stomped the streets around Florence Park delivering flyers for Oxford Mutual Aid. The OMA food bank are recruiting for more volunteers, particularly people to deliver food parcels, so we went house-to-house with their information leaflets. Hopefully they will have an influx of new helpers as a result.
It was a chilly night so we regrouped at The Jolly Postboys pub at the end to warm up.
Welcome to GoodGym Jonah!

2 task Wednesday!
A trio of GoodGymers headed into the Asian Cultural Centre to help with the fortnightly community meal supplied by the Oxford Homeless Project. They made tea and served cake to the guests who were eating, then helped clear up and chatted to the guests.
The rest of the team scattered across the streets of Cowley litter picking. We did a thorough clean up along Manzil Way, including ferreting under hedges for hard-to-reach items and a whizz around the playground. A breakaway group made it all the way to Morrel Avenue. We picked up 6 full sacks of trash.
