16 festive Goodgymmers visited the homeless shelter at Cranwood Hub and hosted a full chicken roast dinner for the guests. They even attempted to sing!

A GG Haringey Christmas Carol

Noisy night, crazy night,

All is hectic, all's alright,

'Round yon Grandpa whose worries piled

as GG Haringey rampages wild

Sleep in heavenly peas

Sleep in heavenly peas.

Noisy night, crazy night!

Chicken roast, oh what a sight!

Christmas crackers, who needs caviar;

When GG Haringey hosts ya!

Peas and potatoes galore!

Peas and potatoes galore!

Noisy night, crazy night,

we tried singing, it wasn't quite right

didn't matter, our hearts full of grace,

murdered Last Christmas, but who cares

T'was a Goodgym Haringey night

T'was a Goodgym Haringey night

Happy Holidays!

What a wonderful night we had at the homeless shelter in Cranwood Hub last night. We cooked a chicken roast for all 14 guests, some of whom joined us in the dining room as the GG Haringey Christmas Choir regaled them with some truly earth-shattering performances of all your Christmas classics. What way to end the year!

And it's been a massive year for Goodgym , reaching it 10th year milestone, and for us at the GG Haringey - although it's been a period of surviving the new management (!) - I think I can speak for most of us in Haringey to say we have had a magnificent time embedding ourselves into our community that we love so dearly and being able to help in whatever small way we can to make it a better place for all of us.

We head onto a new decade and we face uncertain times perhaps, but as long as there are foodbanks that need stocking, gardens that need pruning, homeless shelters that need torturing by carol singing, community centres that need painting... our red t-shirted Goodgymmers will continue pacing the streets of Haringey, trying to do our bit. We can't wait to get going again.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at Goodgym Haringey!

Festive Boom!

A-MaZ-InG!!!! A creative lyrical piece. A funky carol service, if a little off beat with our Haringey hums. Thank you for supplying and cooking ALL the food.
GGH under new management is full of Christmas cheer and thriving. Here's hoping Santa fills your stocking with the kind of stuffing that make dreams, become reality. Thank you.
Peace Out E.
