Ivo, Ivo, it’s off to Catton Grove we go
13 GoodGymers made their way 6.9km to help the Catton Grove Community Centre in Norwich.

We were blessed with the presence of GoodGym Founder & CEO, Sir Ivo Gormley (well he's a Sir in my opinion), alongside his partner Jess, who both joined us on this evening's session. They said its the first session they have attended together for about 10 years, so we were very privileged.
The task was to do some cutting back at Catton Grove Community Centre, which is always fun as we have no restrictions and can just chop everything back as much as we like, which had overgrown a lot over these last 2 months. Firstly though, we had to jog 2.75km from The Forum to get there, on a warm and muggy evening.
As you can see from the photos, the pile of cuttings was huge and will be chipped so it can be reused (not eaten - different type of chips!).
It was lovely to see Ivo and Jess. I'm not one for brown-nosing or earning brownie points with the boss as thats not my style, but everyone would agree with me that he is so down to earth, a really approachable person and just wanted to get stuck into the task, one of the reasons he started GoodGym, and that really reflects in the GoodGym ethos that he has created.
