Hit the lanes - Bowling Night

Fri 29 Oct

We will be hitting Superbowl at the Principality Stadium, we will need to know in advance how many people are coming so that we can make the booking.

Michael will sort this out, it's £7.80 for one game or £12.50 for two games, but this can be sorted out once we know how many people are coming.

As we will be in town for this, we will more than likely go out for a few drinks afterwards - the train station is nice and close so you can leave your cars at home and have yourselves a good ol' party.

We've Only Just Price Gun

Tue 26 Oct
Report written by Michael

Tonight, there were ten of us for Tenovus.........

Meeting back at Sport Wales once again in Sophia gardens, it was a slightly drizzly start to our evening, we all chatted whilst waiting for everyone to arrive and then made our way into the dark night.

Thankfully the rain stopped as we started, at last a dry Tuesday run. We made our way through the City Centre and already you could begin to see the set up for the Winter markets, we talked about our bowling night this coming Friday and other socials that we could set up.

  • Fireworks
  • Ice Skating in the Castle grounds
  • Our yearly Xmas Party (fingers crossed)

Keep your eyes peeled for them on the website!


We suddenly found ourselves at a very strange set of lights, with the green crossing light somehow turned around to face the cars so we could no longer see when it was green. We managed to safely cross the road and got to the Tenovus shop dead on time to start our tasks for the evening.

Carl met us, as usual with a smile.......I say as usual, this is the first return since pre-pandemic, so it was wonderful to finally be back again. We said our 'Hi hi's' and it was time to get to work, splitting into teams and off we went.

  • Pricing and sorting the DVD's
  • Tagging, sizing and hanging donated clothes
  • Steaming clothes in the hanging area
  • Pricing puzzles
  • Dressing three mannequins

Andrew, Jamie and Martin went to work on the media.

Estelle, Hannah and Lydia hit the pile of clothes after a quick demonstration of the taggers and steamer.

Michelle and Sean made their way to puzzle corner and with puzzled looks began counting a 1000 piece jigsaw (unfortunately there were 3 pieces missing).

This left Su with her favourite job of the mannequin dressing.


30 minutes went by in the blink of an eye, in this time lots of clothes were steamed and ready to be priced in the morning. The DVD's had been completed and Martin was now helping Su with the remaining mannequin, after lots of arguments the puzzle had been counted and found to be missing pieces but we had managed a couple of smaller puzzles. A quick photo in the Halloween window and it was time to head back.`

Sport Wales National Centre, Sophia Gardens, Cardiff, CF11 9SW
Keep the charity shop looking good, and support the charity.

Tenovus Cancer Care is a Welsh cancer charity that supports cancer patients and their families, funds cancer research and works to raise awareness of how to prevent cancer.

We will be volunteering in the shop on Clifton Street, it's been a very long time since we were here last. There may be some painting involved but we will confirm this soon.

Friday Social run 5K

Fri 15 Oct

The half-marathon is behind us, but this does not mean that our Friday runs are over. Quite the opposite.

We aim to get together to run in a Good Gym Style (that is chat while keeping up with your teammates). We will run around Roath Park because it is well lit, there are many runners nearby so it is a great location for evening runs.

Bring high visibility jackets or lights anyway.

We expect to run around the Lake and back. That's around 5k. Because it is a social run, we will run it in 30 to 40 mins. Faster runners are very much welcome to show off their pace.

Dirty Diana....

Tue 5 Oct
Report written by Michael

A smaller group of six tonight as our total distance was 8 km, but it was a great opportunity to meet up with a new organiser and see a great project - Diana Gardens Regeneration Project.

The project is to restore a garden which was opened 30 years ago by Princess Diana, Action in Caerau and Ely is running the project to turn the space back into the playground and nature site it once was. They know about goodgym as they are also responsible for another one of the projects that we help with The Dusty Forge.

Enter goodgym

After a 4 km run, with some hill work thrown in we arrived at the space and where welcomed Vaida who had organised our visit, we had a quick chat about the space and the project whilst Michael set up the lights. A selection of tools where ready, so all that was needed was the energy the is goodgymers.

Tools UP

We set to work on the task to clear the space back to the soil, except for an apple tree and some plants in flower that would be great for late pollinators. Some of us decided to clear the ivy and the bindweed, whilst the rest of us took to the ground and began cutting and clearing. Several wheelbarrows later, and it was looking clear just in time for a group photo.

Next week we will see our monthly return to Samye - sign up link below. There will also be a walk / jog group available for this. Remember your lights as the nights close in.
