goodgym FIVE is alive

Tue 24 May
Report written by Michael

What a time it's been, the past FIVE years have flown by in a haze of volunteering, fun and great NEW friends. By taking part in goodgym we are given the opportunity to get active, do good, meet new people and see the good side of our community through the groups that we engage with.

We started our week of celebrations with a party in the park on Saturday, games, food and of course goodgym FUN. Now, for the actual group activity which we always have on a Tuesday here in Cardiff.

Tonight, we were helping out again with our friends at Cwtch Together to clear their outside area ready to be used for the Jubilee Garden Party. We had slabs to move, a BBQ to move, weeds and rubbish to bag up ready to go, and a Mud Kitchen to build - what a workout we can have in store.

18 of the crew turned up tonight, including some of the originals WELCOME BACK.

It was going to be a good 5km round trip, and the weather was on our side as the skies cleared and the sun beamed down upon us.

It was a nice route, some park, some streets and then another park - scenery, friends and chatting always help on a run / walk. Once there, we split into groups and got straight to work, plenty of weight lifting with the slab crew, a nice quieter task for the weed brigade and the rubbish rebels simply hit everything. Whilst outside was a hub of activity, the Mud gang made their way inside to make a start on the build.

But wait.........who's this?

A surprise guest arrived to have a look at the great things that goodgym are doing here in Cardiff, and what a pleasure it was. Can you spot them in the photos?

Nearly out of time so a quick..

Tools down, a quick tidy up and just time for a photo or 20, we may have got overly excited with the cutout.

A huge thanks to all the members, past, present and future - you are the reason for our survival and continuation with the support and time that you give.

Diolch yn fawr

Keep an eye out for us on the streets and maybe join us sometime soon.

The children are loving their time down cwtch but as spring has come so quickly we have the dreaded garden area to sort out and make safe for the children to play without stingy nettles and spiky weeds

So, come one and all goodgymers for some weeding, general gardening cutting grass etc.

No Rain, No Pain

Tue 17 May
Report written by Michael

We're back and we will not let the threat of rain stop us, 10 goodgymers met up raring to go out there and help another good cause. Tonight, our journey was to the wonderful YMCA shop on Colchester avenue, the tasks to sort donations ready for sale, make a display for the Sci-Fi books that was 'Out of this World' and hand and display the clothes all ready on the rails.

We met outside of Big Moose, introduced ourselves - welcomed back Amelia for a second group activity and BIG welcome to Dalma for the FIRST introduction to goodgym.

We hope you enjoyed the experience

We made our way on one of our longer runs to the second pick up point, chatting all the way about our weekends gone by, brutal work out classes and races we had taken part in. A quick stop at the second point before 'running up that hill', a great workout for the thighs and a great Kate Bush song to boot.

We were welcomed at the YMCA, not by the Village People but the Manager Liam. A quick thirst break to top up our hydration levels before splitting into groups and getting to volunteering. 30 minutes passed in no time at all (except for the 30 minutes) and clothes had been put on display, multiple bags had been sorted (those not for sale were being recycled, including the bag of many, many bras). And finally the display of Sci-Fi books was set up and glorious enough for our final group photo.

Time to say thanks and head off back to our start, a stretch or two - which turned into everyone showcasing their favourtie stretch until we had all tried them, and then a social in the local and chance to get each other some more. The conversation of choice tonight, what else - Eurovision.

Join us next week for our 5th Birthday Celebration Activity.
