Party People

Sun 27 Jun
Report written by Michael

Some with a mission already under their belt, now was the time to let down our locks and have some fun in the park.

We had been voting all weekend on whether this gathering was going ahead or not, guess what won?

So with, snacks, sandwiches, gazeebos, blankets and a little booze we all met up. Chatting began, and then music went on (thanks Ana Matronic's mixes). It was not too long until the games started (thanks Nathan).

We had the joy of Finnish Mölkky - I am NOT going to try to explain this so have a look, just know that it is GREAT fun. RULES.

Followed by the fun of Swedish Kubb - again look here for the RULES.

Thankfully all forecasts were totally wrong and we had a good several hours in the park laughing, playing and eating. Oh, we had better get out more next week to work off those snacks.......

Picnic in the Park

Sun 27 Jun 15:00 pm
Cooper's Field, Bute Park, North Rd, Cardiff , CF10 3ER
Let's have some fun and food

Now that the numbers have increased let's have a get together in the park. Bring some food and drink (if you want to drink that is).

Once I know how many are coming I will get a few platters from Morrisons (other supermarkets are available).

If you are planning on bringing something to share, leave a comment so we don't get a lot of the same things. 😎

Rubbish Heroes

Sun 20 Jun
Report written by Michael

As part of the The Great Get Together 10 goodgymers met in the local park for a litter pick. 5 have just taken part in the social run so a nice walk was a lovely change of pace.

The Great Get Together is inspired by the late Jo Cox MP, who was killed on 16th June 2016. In her first speech in Parliament, Jo said: “We have more in common than that which divides us.”

Showing that we have #MoreInCommon we made our way through the park to make it a little better for everyone that uses it. We found a dolls head, tidied up the river bank, cleaned up one of the busiest parts that day.

We stopped for coffee and some snacks, and received a lot of thanks from random strangers this day. It was a great way to celebrate the message #MoreInCommon. With our final helping stranger taking our group photo and giving us the report title. By saying smile you rubbish heroes, i mean Rubbish Heroes, not rubbish......heroes.

The Great British Spring Clean

Sun 6 Jun
Report written by Michael

As we reach the end of volunteer week 2021 it was perfect time for 2 social runs and then a litter pick as part of Great British Spring Clean.

7 of us got to work around Roath Recreation Ground and Pleasure Gardens.

We had already jogged a nice 5km around the area, some of us including Roath Lake.

Learning Time

Roath Park, opened in 1894 , was one of the first public parks in Cardiff’s and still retains its classic Victorian atmosphere and layout of characterful linear parks, extending along the Nant Fawr stream. Each section of the park was designed for a specific purpose and the park still provides a wide range of horticultural interest, nature conservation and activities to delight today’s visitors.

Roath Park is one of the city’s Green Flag parks .

Source: Outdoor Cardiff

The areas are a great place to meet, enjoy the sun with friends, play bowls, tennis or the newest must play game started by Llion, Martin and Michael litter picker pine cone golf.

Ben and Karolina proved litter pick heroes by getting right into the areas that no one else could.

Flo had assistance after being met by Emily who helped out upon her arrival around the rec. But Flo went that extra mile by taking the shopping trolley back to Home Bargains where it belonged.

Several bags and we were done, time to head off for lunches and coffees after some decent amount of keeping fit by doing good.

Social 5k catchup (30-45 min pace)

Sun 6 Jun

Meeting at the Penylan Community Centre. A 5k run at a pace you can run and chat.

A litter pick will also be scheduled following the run (optional)

Run groups are going to be limited to six, but if one fills up, another will be listed. We are choosing to limit these to six to be respectful to the public also using the pathway in the park.

Happy Birthday

Sun 23 May
Report written by Michael

On a very rainy day the goodgymers in Cardiff still got out to celebrate the fourth birthday of goodgym in Wales.

With very little rules, other than run something relating to 4 it was good to see us still getting out. We'd already had a mission in the morning so this was to finish off the day.
