Volunteers from Bradley Stoke Green Gym have been busy working around the Three Brooks lake today.

If you fancy joining them next week, here is some information from a recent Journal article:

"Green Gym is a small, friendly group and is definitely more green than gym (with an average age of 62, Lycra is most definitely banned). Each week we undertake practical conservation tasks, with members doing what they can and stopping for tea and biscuits when they’ve had enough. Green Gym is free and open to everyone. We meet every Thursday from 10am to 1pm and we always start from behind the leisure centre. You wear suitable clothes and footwear and we provide the rest. Our email is greengym@three-brooks.info or you can call on the Three Brooks number 07497 006676."

Source: www.bradleystokejournal.co.uk/2017/11/16/green-gym-group-tackles-the-common-east/The good news is: forgot to take some 'after' pictures but Green Gym this morning put the last of the bark down on the lake path. We also had cakes for Jackie's birthday, (we didn't sing, we like her) cut some reed and took it over to the island and made a few swan nests, although I'm sure the ducks will borrow it for their nests. We also untangled the floating platforms much to Brookes annoyance as she had been enjoying a nap on one and we're pretty sure we found otter poo on one of the platforms! One of the dog walkers told me later she'd recently seen an otter so fingers crossed!! We also put in a duck house (thank you to Big Dave for donating that) and put back up one of the bird boxes and found our 'woodpecker'. We did later hear the real one at work in the woods.
The bad news is that Himalayan Balsam is already growing on the island and you won't want to ask Big dave for 50p after you see where it's been!!
