We have easing restrictions and Goodgym Poole is again trying to find its feet!

We are also approaching our 2nd Birthday in a few weeks, it is time to celebrate what we have achieved but also reflect on where we are at and where we are going.

There has been big changes to the area activators role since Covid, along with the task force roles and of course changes to how we operate due to Covid.

Many members stayed they are happy to be part of a role where there is structured events, for example a meet up at Parkrun every 3 months, a social event, a beach clean (organised by others), a weekend longer run.

Members miss the group run 'vibe' that was gained from a run first, with a chat, then a task and run back / fitness task.

Some members cannot do Tuesday and this does clash with other groups. GG can be other nights, but would need task force member to lead potentially. Other consideration if GG main session should move to another night.

Discussion if Wimborne is covered under our area - potential for more tasks there.

All comments and suggestions welcomed to Esther via usual channels!

Actions: *Have a Goodgym social on the next few weeks as opportunity to bring people back to Goodgym that haven't been for a while. *If we need to build tasks, a facebook post could be drafted and members will share in different groups. *Task force members encouraged to look at the new role and decide if it is still a fit for them. There is training to complete by end of June in line with updates. *Esther to look at a structure where there could be recurring events each month and other task force members see if can take them on. *The weekly community mission is now on every Tuesday, so looking to tweek this within guidance to bring opportunities such as run first back so the GG zing is back! *Esther find out if area can include places such as Wimborne.
