Small but mighty
On a slightly misty Sunday morning Barbara Hudson and I were delighted to welcome Amro who was a GG tourist from Brighton.
We had a really great 70 mins clearing litter, walking along the prom and beach together whilst getting to know each other.
Amro has now achieved his tourism badge. Kudos and cheer to you 🙌👌
It was also Hudsons first GG task so big woof and cheer for him too.
Age UK East Sussex has been inundated with donations over the last 18 months due to people having time to sort through their stuff during lockdown. They need help sorting the gems from the rubbish to help raise funds that support the older population in East Sussex.
Meet at The seafront flowerbed number 34 at 09:30 opposite Marks and Spencer
We will walk, talk and litter pick for an hour ( route TBC depending on weather) I will bring the litter pickers and bags but please bring your own gloves.
We will be through by 10.30. All the family are welcome to come along
St Andrew's in Hove do loads of great stuff to support the surrounding community and their churchyard is a popular outdoor place for locals to use.
Unfortunately they have had to make some cuts and let their regular gardener go so there is lots for us to do to help them keep on top of things.
The Vicarage Bowling Green near Preston Park needs a bit of Tender Loving Care. The paths need a good weed and the raised bed is looking quite neglected. But with a bit of attention from us it will be licked into shape to create a nicer environment for the bowlers and those that walk through it.
The green is on the A23 opposite Sainsbury's at the bottom of Preston Drove. (Don't pay too much attention to the map as I can't find an accurate postcode!)
Ayo my people its time to rap again....not sure from where to begin
Four Goodgymmers met at Somerset Point...don't let the pun fool you there was no joint!

Eilleen thanked us all for the effort...and here I am writing this report
On a glorious sunny day, 7 GoodGymers showed up at Brighton Table Tennis Club to perform the week's Community Mission. We were met by Gary who assigned us few tasks to do: weeding and watering the plants. Michael, David, Roy and Michelle took care of the front side of the BTTC building while Frannie and Susan took care of the backside of the building. Yours truly took over the task of watering the plants in the green area opposite to BTTC. In one hour, we were done; returned the tools, did some last minute clean up and said our goodbyes. It was fun and we can't wait till we do another Community Mission again next week.
This is another council run seniors accommodation scheme with a garden maintained by the residents who can always do with an extra helping hand from Goodgym.
Tasks include lawn mowing and trimming and general gardening and tidying up.
Meet resident Eilleen at the front entrance between Montague Street and Somerset Street.
