Current GoodGym TaskForce Leader in Exeter. Moving to Plymouth in June 2021 and keen to bring GG to the area.
Cowick Barton Playing Fields is a very popular green area in Exeter. Unfortunately there is often a lot of litter around. Lets do our bit to clean some up!
Join us by the main entrance to the park (there is a little car park and public toilets there).
We will start off with a a few running/jogging laps around the park (all abilities welcome) followed by a little core session and then get stuck in with the litter-pick.
We can't wait to see you there, get some extra steps in and get fit whilst doing good!
PS. Don't forget your gloves!
Spring is here and what could be better than getting together for some gardening at a community allotment!
The allotment is used by a number of community groups (women's groups , The Greenwood Project and the Bridge Collective) to give people the chance to spend some time in a safe space in nature - especially important after the long lockdown times.
Bring your gardening gloves and come along to get fit by doing good!
We will meet by the gate to the allotment, which is near the carwash and petrol station by Morrison’s.
If you have any questions or struggle finding the location call Klara on 07795064906.
Looking forward to seeing you there!

5 GoodGymers braced the cold wind, rain and sunshine on a lovely Tuesday evening to help Whipton Community Centre spruce up their garden (and cemetery!).
Craig and Rosie were unleashed on the lawnmowers, while Lucy R showed off her litter picking prowess. Pete and Clàudia tidied up some gravestones (with plenty of living occupants including spiders and snails) and chopped back bushes which had clearly been enjoying lockdown.
At least we can give our community gardens a decent haircut, even if we're all still waiting!
6 GoodGymers had a great time, clearing weeds and grass from some flower beds at Whitpon Barton Infant School
It was a lovely and warm spring evening and it felt so amazing to be out there, waiting for the GG team to arrive!
I don't think I have ever felt happier to see the gang of red T-shirts arrive!
Our task this evening was to help Whipton Barton Infant School clearing some flower beds. It was amazing how much we got done in just over an hour and it sure gave us a nice work out too! You just got to love getting fit by doing good!
Best of all was perhaps all the chatting and sharing of stories.. Especially Craig's story or how he attempted to break the world record of maximum high-fives in one day! Brilliant!
See you all soon again and have a lovely Easter weekend with lots of chocolate eggs!
Our friends at Whipton Community Hall work very hard to keep their large garden nice and tidy. Let's give them some helping hands!
Come and join us, get stuck in with weeding and cutting back grass, get fit by doing good!
Bring your own gardening gloves and remember to keep your distances at all times.
