Tues 17th July: Merton woods has been done so we are not needed. Instead we will return to Bure Park, but meet at the top end at the balancing pond, access Betony Way (by the school). Please park considerately as residential and no handy lay-bys. Jobs will be trimming hedges and filling in pot holes. If time we may attack dock seed heads again.
As seen on Facebook, got this message for our work clearing up in the woodland walk: “Sincere thanks to all members of Green Gym, who did such an outstanding job of clearing so much rubbish (& destruction of trees/shrubs), from areas of Bure Park on 3/7/18. Sadly some park visitors don’t appreciate its beauty, nor the danger of certain ‘litter’ to our dogs. So appreciate your tireless hard work; especially in these high temperatures. With gratitude“. Makes it all worthwhile!
Summer socials: bring a picnic for afterwards at the Community Orchard on 24th July and 14th August. Also bring a punnet for any harvesting! Should the weather be dodgy we will retire to the “Nightingale” at Langford Village instead.
Note we almost always start work even if the weather is forecast bad. We have only been rained off 3 or 4 times in all our years! For tasks out of Bicester we meet at the Bure Park Co-Op for car sharing at 9:15am, unless it is further afield, when it may be earlier still.
See you soon to burn off some calories!
