Marion Road Day Centre tidy up

Mon 7 Feb 18:00 pm
The Forum, Millennium Plain, Norwich, NR2 1TF
It will enable the older people who attend the centre to enjoy the outdoors

The centre was closed for the majority of the pandemic, and although we have managed to maintain the grass, the weeds around the fire exits and perimeter of the property have grown. So we would like help weeding paths, fire exit passage and generally tidying up.

You can either meet at The Forum at 6pm or meet at Marion Road Day Centre (Marion Road, NR1 4BN) at 6.30pm.

There will be a walk and run option from The Forum or you can cycle alongside us.

Although there is no baggage storage at The Forum, any belongings can be left in my vehicle.

GoodGyming around the campfire

Thu 20 Jan
Report written by Steven Hitcham

9 GoodGymers braved the cold weather (and some rain) to help at St Alban Church Hall.

We've done a few visits over the last year or so and have really made a difference in helping them to make the Church and Church Hall more community friendly.

Tonight's task was to paint an outside breeze block wall black to give it a modern touch.

Luckily the vicar and his lovely wife and set up a little camp fire to give off some heat, which was perfectly positioned so I could stay close to it and oversee the task at the same time haha.

A job well done and we'll be back soon to finish the wall painting.

Well done to Alina for completing 10 good deeds.

Queen Elizabeth III

Mon 17 Jan
Report written by Steven Hitcham

I received a phone call from BBC Look East during the morning to see if GoodGym Norwich could go live on the news later in the day.

As it is Blue Monday and the fact they had heard about Elizabeth Halford's recent award, they rightly thought adding GoodGym to the news show would share a positive message to others.

At short notice, 20 GoodGymers managed to make it to The Forum for their minute of fame, I mean to support Elizabeth. They all received a good workout while we were being filmed.

The father of GoodGym CEO Ivo designed the Angel of the North statue, so I thought it'd be fitting to have Elizabeth's face super imposed to it.

Oh, and yes the BBC spelt my name wrong haha.

Live on BBC Look East

Mon 17 Jan 18:30 pm
The Forum, Millennium Plain, Norwich, NR2 1TF
Become famous... or infamous

BBC Look East would like to to go live on air this evening to put a positive note on Blue Monday and to capture Elizabeth's recent incredible award.

We're going to meet at The Forum at 6.30pm, to do a gentle fitness session live on air about 6.45pm. We'll pretend we're going off to a Group Run but we won't actually be doing that!

Optional whether or not anyone then fancies going for a run afterwards.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come along as the more we have there the better it will look!

The ‘Branch Manager’

Sat 15 Jan
Report written by Steven Hitcham

This morning's task was another visit to Mousehold Heath but on this occasion we visited an area of the heath that we hadn't visited before.

Myself and Nicole made our way there from The Forum, while the others met us at the heath, some of whom had completed parkrun.

Nigel greeted us and explained the task ahead, which was to trim the bottom parts of the trees beside the car park. This was to help the tree health and to keep the park exposed from the car park.

The loppers came out and we didn't hang about in getting on with the task.

Beks' doggo Emrys was assisting in collecting up the sticks and branches, so much so that he was trying to grab the branches from Nicole.

I had a slight awkward moment (aside from standing in dog p00) when a dog ran towards me so I got my camera out and said "come here Emrys" and started taking photos of it. A man was walking over while looking at my weirdly followed by Beks telling me "that's not Emrys"... oops.

We got loads done and Nigel was rather impressed when he came back over 30 mins later.

Well done to all 9 GoodGymers who were able to make it, a job well done.
