What a beautiful evening to celebrate GoodGym Bournemouth's 7th birthday. Our first ever good deed was a beach clean so to celebrate, the GoodGymers performed a litter-pick at gloriously sunny Durley Chine beach. Daryl, Neil, Janet and Caprice met newbies Lucy and Louis for a short Group Run to the Beach. Welcome Lucy and Louis! They certainly looked the part by wearing red T-Shirts (hopefully it won't take long for their shirts to arrive) Once at the beach they met Hannah, Sue, Paul, Katie and Katie's mum Jill. It was Jill's first time at GoodGym, she is smashing her C25K so hopefully next time we will see her at our Group Runs! The beach was still quite busy so the group started their litter pick by whizzing around the car-park and up onto the cliff-top. It was slim pickings to start with but the bags just kept getting heavier. We were soon joined by Lea and Keith who had spent the day volunteering on Brownsea Island. They were both knackered but still managed to join us with their grabbers and bin bags. We love you guys! After a successful session the group then hit the beach for celebratory drinks and snacks. What a great bunch, it was so nice to see so many faces! Here's to another seven years and more!! Cheers! 🥂🎉
