Enabling the Social Supermarket to provide food for those in need

As lockdown progresses, the Social Supermarket have decided to increase their opening hours and so will open on Thursday evening too. This will be a GoodGym takeover of the running of the supermarket, so you will be supporting the running of the supermarket and helping people chose their shopping. There will be a briefing before the community mission. Can you support them?

Getting diggy with it!

Sat 18 Jan
Report written by Liz Pharoah

This Saturday, 13 members of GoodGym descended on Spencer Park in Coventry in order to support its loyal volunteers with some tasks. The sun was shining this morning, and many runners either enjoyed some parkrun fun or walked and ran to Drapers in order to clock up a few extra miles and enjoy the bright blue skies. We also welcome three new members; Megan, Debbie and Vickie. We hope that you enjoyed your first session and come back soon! We were also visited by Councillor Kamran Caan and Coventry Council as part of the city’s ‘Coventry Smashes Sport Week’. After we met at Drapers, we took the short run through the city centre to Spencer Park. We soon set about tackling some of the tasks. Some GoodGym members blitzed the tennis courts which needed clearing of the twigs, sticks and debris that had blown in during recent bad weather. By the end of the session, the courts looked clear, ready for the community to enjoy a spot of tennis. The other half of the group dug up an immense amount fo enormous roots and turned over the soil for some new flower beds for a new project with Age UK and a local Primary School.They did a great job in no time at all.
Once we had finished our task, we took a short jog over the road to Top Green Park where we did a one mile challenge. Everyone completed the three laps of the park to complete their one mile and it was lovely to see everyone supporting one another to challenge themselves to achieve their own personal fitness goals. The sun was still shining as we headed back to Drapers where many of us stopped for a well earned coffee and catch up in Drapers.

Take a leaf(let) out of our book...Bag it up and learning a bit about Coventry's past and wildlife

Tue 21 May
Report written by Liz Pharoah

On a lovely summer's evening, we didn't have to head too far out of town to complete our task today. 14 GoodGym Coventry runners ran 4km to deliver 500 leaflets and bags for Coventry Cyrenians.

Once at our location, we split in to four teams initially named after left or right of centre and odd and even numbers, however this soon got complicated and traditional names were used. Keen to win, the even teams completed their drops first on round one, as the round progressed competition hotted up but although it was tight the winners were Natalie, Laura P and Meera.

Having completed the task in super speedy time and delivering all of our bags, we headed back in to town exploring some local history on the way-Whitefriars, initially built in 1342! Plus a bit of wildlife.

Our fitness session was 200m reps followed by exercises chosen by the winning team. Nigel gave Damian a run for his money on the reps, pushing right till the very end, Nigel if there were 6 reps, you'd have got him!

The exercises chosen by the winners, were star jumps, step ups, tricep dips and Squate- using the beautiful horse shaped benches :)

Having worked hard and done good, we headed back to Drapers whilst the sun was still shining.

Have a good week and bank holiday weekend all, Liz x
