Litter-ally fantastic

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

What an amazing spot of litter picking. The team amassed tonnes of bags of litter from across Windsor and Maidenhead. From Sutherland Grange, to across local parks and school runs, the team worked hard. Well done everyone!

Artichoking up as we do our allotment of good

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

It was a dark and stormy night - no, it actually wasn’t this time…it was a night of no particularly memorable weather as 18 Goodgymers met at the Community Centre to help the Maidenhead Community Allotment. It was great to see so many people, and to welcome new face Adam, for the last Wednesday session of the January challenge. This was combined with towel collecting for the other last task of the month, as we’re all really quite obsessed at this point. We may not have won but we absolutely smashed our target and that’s what really matters. On a slightly less cheesy note, this will also provide motivation for when we crush everyone else next year. In a nice, community-spirited way. There was also a distinct lack of rubbish along the route to the task, conclusively proving (because I say so and I’m the one with the words) that we’ve had a real impact with all the litter-picking-up this month.

Once at the task, we were divided into groups and given a number of things to do to help the allotment prepare for the new year. There was moving piles of dirt to the correct places, stamping on said piles of dirt to make it look nice, digging up weeds and artichokes, ensuring the weeds and artichokes were put in separate piles, and a bit of drama over some leaky butts. I have been given permission to use as many butt puns as I can think of but, despite the temptation, I don’t want to make you all crack up too much.

The time flew by and suddenly we’d done all the things that needed to be done and were being herded into a circle for the fitness part of the night - a Goodgym classic where one person chooses an exercise for everyone else to do and then runs around the circle. We left the task with a sense of both achievement and exhaustion, bags full of artichokes, and a little more exercise as we tried not to step in the remainder of the water from the (now no longer leaky) butts.

A boot-load of towels

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

GoodGymmers across W&M dug deep in their linen cupboards and donated a whole lot of towels for the animals at Diana Brimblecombe Animal Rescue Centre! The staff at DBARC were very pleased with the donations and thanked us for our efforts.

Wow, that's loads! Well done Kanika for going the extra mile and delivering it all too. Did you get any cuddles or at least get to meet any of the residents?

Alas, I didn't get any cuddles 😔

Stepping back in time

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Amy L (she/her)

What do the dinosaurs, Viking long boats, Queen Elizabeth I, Mars the Roman God of War, a Sphinx and a pyramid, the silhouetted London skyline from WW2, and Windrush all have in common?

Not only are they all important symbols, moments or characters from history, they are also all the subject of sculptures and artwork created by GoodGymers Claire, Yesim, Hannah, Tessa, Nicola and myself.

And what would you need if you wanted to step back in time and visit all these fascinating parts of history?

Either a TARDIS... or a reading festival, packed with books, visiting authors and interactive activities to help bring the past to life.

Lucky for the people of Maidenhead, we have both!

A TARDIS lovingly created by Scarlett, AND a fantastic celebration of books (and for this year's theme, history) in the form of the Big Read festival.

Many thanks to task owner Tessa from the Big Read committee, who invited us to make these decorations for the library ready for the festival. It is the third year we have been involved in this creative project and it's always a joy to see what people make. This year's theme was 'Stepping Back in Time', so we had the whole of history to inspire us.

Special mention to Yesim's husband, who sailed her amazing viking long boat down to the community centre to welcome us back from our group run this evening.

Bird bird bird, b-bird's the word

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Jess Smith

This weekend saw Goodgymmers from around the country take part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch.

Binoculars were donned and eagle-eyes scoured gardens, open spaces and patches of rushes for flocks of birds. Some had many visitors whilst others were hampered by their feline friends getting in on the action!

This is a list of the species spotted this weekend - it's amazing and shows the variety of garden birds we are lucky to have in the UK. The information the group has provided, along with the thousands of other who have taken part, is vital for the RSPB to understand the birds we have and if there are any areas of concern they can work on.

Blue Tits House Sparrows Robins Woodpigeons Crows Magpies Parakeets Feral Pigeons Red Kites Blackbirds Blackcaps Coal Tits Dunnocks Goldfinches Great Tits Doves Jackdaws Woodpeckers Starlings Chaffinches

The greatest volume of one species reported back was an impressive 18 Crows by Jo in Lambeth and Nicola was lucky enough to see 5 Red Kites in Maidenehad!

Thank you to everyone who took part and I hope you continue to look your for your feathery neighbours throughout the year. If you wanted to help them along Georgeta 's top tip is placing sunflower seed chips and fat balls out for them to feast on!
