On Land and water the litter will not win!

Wed 22 Sep
Report written by Alys Penfold

This evening 7 of us met at WWF for a litter pick around the canal; this week it was a litter pick with a difference. Not only on Land but also on Water.

Holly and Alys brought their paddle boards and James, Victoria, Anne, Adam and Katie walked along the canal collecting litter. The canal and park were surprisingly clean but we still managed to find some litter to collect.

Well done

James for completing the Hampton Court half marathon on Sunday!

Good luck

James and Adam with the Surrey Half on Sunday and also Victoria who is taking part in the 5km event.

We wish Anne a lovely holiday in France and we look forward to your return! You will be missed!

Next Week

We will be at Brockhill, meeting at WWF for a jog/run down the canal!

Please remember head torches!

Ants Attack

Wed 15 Sep
Report written by Anne FB

Adam, Anne and James met at the Lighthouse where our mission was to clean the premises. Adam had run 5kmsbefore the task while Anne and James took an easier route. Holly could not join us as planned as she is still unwell and, unfortunately, Nick was working late.

It was good to come back to the food bank where we noticed a lot of improvements regarding the storage facilities (fridge, freezer, closed cupboards). We weregiven brand new large mops, which greatly facilitated our work.

The food bank in the Lighthouse is now open from Monday to Thursday (9:30 to 2:30) and their popularity is still very high. If you wish to donate some food, please look at their website:

https://woking.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/

where you will see a list of items they would be delighted to receive. (Thank you.)

The only little issue we faced this evening was the invasion of ants trying to attack the GG team… Thank goodness for good old “Henry” which put a stop to it all.

We ended the evening with a light meal and drinks in a local venue and the company was GoodGymtastic.

Best wishes to:

  • James who, on Sunday, will run the Hampton Court half-marathon (as Katie got injured and can no longer participate);
  • Adam, Holly, Wayne and Anne who will take part in the Virtual 10K Guiness World Record attempt together with a whole group of GG runners.

Next week we will meet at the WWF and we will run along the canal while picking up litter. If you have a SUP you may wish to bring it along.

In the meantime, happy running everyone

The return of the brambles (take 2)

Wed 8 Sep
Report written by Anne FB

There is no better way to spend an evening: good friends, drinks, meeting in the natural world…

Five of us gathered our strength to climb over the locked gate… Guess who:

  • climbed graciously over it;
  • showed their muscles while jumping confidently over the same gate;
  • was thrown over it (and safely caught);
  • got stuck on top of it;
  • crawled under it… A reward for who has the all correct answers.

We worked steadily until dark came upon us. It was good to catch up on news and discuss the future group runs.

Best wishes to Holly who is competing this coming Sunday (running/swimming).

Do not worry if you could not join us this week, next Wednesday we will meet at the Lighthouse (next to the station – where we used to go to help at the foodbank) and will be very happy to see you all!

In the meantime, happy running to everyone.
