Saturday 9th July
Thomas Schiller done a 6 month mission streak.
Thomas just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Thomas a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.

There were scythes, and nettles, and bind weed; all the GoodGym task essential elements!
We spent a very wholesome morning at Oxford City Farm drop-in morning running the café, detangling bind weed from lime trees and pear trees, scything nettles, moving benches and fixing up guttering so that it feeds the water butt. Thomas manned the gate, and everyone learned how to care for the chickens, sheep and bunnies. There's trouble in paradise with bullying issues amongst the hens and the rabbits! Hopefully harmony will be restored very soon. The sheep were delightful as ever - they'd never stoop to such undignified behaviour.

Our GoodGym May morning extravaganza finished with a task in the garden of Flo's The Place in the Park - a local community hub and delightful cafe. Thomas was awarded the Garland of Joy to wear throughout the session in celebration of reaching 10 Good Deeds. Well done Thomas!
We had weeding to do and a pirate ship to paint (as you do), and 13 bleary-eyed, sleep-deprived GoodGymers to do it. Holly and Katie got the yarn-bombing task of cordoning off the pirate ship while the varnish dried with brightly coloured knitting wool. Hazard tape is so 2021. The rest of us divided up between weeding and pruning the garden, or sanding and varnishing the pirate ship. A break for complimentary coffee and pastries kept us with enough energy to get through til 11am despite the early start for May morning celebrations, and we're pretty sure we didn't weed anything that shouldn't be weeded.
A successful 1st task of May!
