MC Goodgymers scratching and cutting

Sat 28 May
Report written by James Clare

A lot of us hadn't been there before, also didn't help that Google directed us to Loxford Leisure Centre 😂. But after knowing the address is accurate we made it there, some later than others.

The centre had been left for a long while, and the door to get in, couldn't be opened very far due to the brambles, so we cut out way in and got scratched along the way. The initial idea was to bag the brambles in bin liners but it just shred them. So a compost idea was floated and it seemed the easiest to do, so we cut out a dedicated area and left all out cuttings there.

We finished up, and Liz bought some snacks for us to try, AJ turned up towards the end, due to navigation issues. And we promised to come back and see if we can tackle the rest of the brambles with hopefully less scratches 😅

100 !!!

Sat 21 May
Report written by Peter Van Tongeren

Just to clarify a point that was mentioned early on today - this wasn't a celebration of two GGers becoming 100 each, but more like together -> 60 + 40 = 100!

Now that is clarified, the adventures at this afternoon.

The gang gathered at Fairlop Waters for a little picnic to celebrate Julia's & Linda's birthdays, which added up to 100 together as mentioned. The weather cooperated and the former golf course provided more than enough space for our gathering... and leave room for some wedding pictures being taken as well (no, not GG related, we think)

Besides everyone bringing some snacks & drinks, Ed brought along some games to play as well.

Badminton with oversized equipment didn't last that long, not in the least when the conversation turned to comparing (shuttle)cock sizes

However Rounders was a bigger success.... some stars in the making it seems!

Unfortunately, all good things come to an end, so we said our goodbyes, leaving just some flattened grass as evidence of our presence.

P.S.... anyone know of a fellow Goodgymmer reaching the 40 milestone around November? Asking for a friend... P.S.S... thanks to Kathryn for the great mugs

Linda and Julia are turning 100 YEARS OLD (together) - come and celebrate with a picnic and some games!

Sat 21 May 14:00 pm
Fairlop Waters, Forest Road, Barkingside, IG6 3HN
Joy

That's right, J&L are 100 in May and they couldn't just ignore it without celebrating it with the lovely company of fellow goodgymmers - everyone is welcome, we hope to see folks from other boroughs!

The plans are rather loose but we are hoping for good weather so that we can enjoy the nature of Fairlop Waters and play some summery games like rounders, frisbee and anything else that comes to mind!

If the weather is bad we can hide away in the lovely Boathouse that has a cafe and a restaurant.

Let us know if you can come along - will be great to celebrate gettting more mature with you!:)
