This evening 7 of us met at WWF for a litter pick around the canal; this week it was a litter pick with a difference. Not only on Land but also on Water.
Holly and Alys brought their paddle boards and James, Victoria, Anne, Adam and Katie walked along the canal collecting litter. The canal and park were surprisingly clean but we still managed to find some litter to collect.
James for completing the Hampton Court half marathon on Sunday!
James and Adam with the Surrey Half on Sunday and also Victoria who is taking part in the 5km event.
We wish Anne a lovely holiday in France and we look forward to your return! You will be missed!
We will be at Brockhill, meeting at WWF for a jog/run down the canal!
Please remember head torches!
Meet at the WWF Carpark (next to the steps) - look our for the GG tshirts.
From here we will run down the canal towards Brockhill - it is around 3km each way.
Once at Brockhill we will start with the task.
After we will then run bac towards the WWF Carpark.
Please don't wear new active wear as we usually varnish furniture etc and you may get paint on yourselves.
It is starting to get a little darker in the evenings - so a head torch for the way home would be a good idea.
Meet at the WWF Car park - next to the steps. From here we will be heading along the canal we will be litter picking along the way.
SUP - If you have your own SUP board then you are more than welcome to bring this along to help clear the canal of litter.
Please remember you own gloves and if you have your own litter picker please bring this along.
A HUGE number of Goodgymers rose to the challenge of completing a 10K over the weekend with the aim of becoming world record holders, watch out Mo Farrah!
We will know soon whether the challenge of setting the record for the most people running a virtual 10K run in 2021! Fingers crossed!!
If nothing else us Goodgymers seem to have had a fabulous time. I've very much enjoyed the pictures of ice-creams, beautiful views and gorgeous smiling faces which have been popping up in my inbox.
Well done everyone!
Adam, Anne and James met at the Lighthouse where our mission was to clean the premises. Adam had run 5kmsbefore the task while Anne and James took an easier route. Holly could not join us as planned as she is still unwell and, unfortunately, Nick was working late.
It was good to come back to the food bank where we noticed a lot of improvements regarding the storage facilities (fridge, freezer, closed cupboards). We weregiven brand new large mops, which greatly facilitated our work.
The food bank in the Lighthouse is now open from Monday to Thursday (9:30 to 2:30) and their popularity is still very high. If you wish to donate some food, please look at their website:
where you will see a list of items they would be delighted to receive. (Thank you.)
The only little issue we faced this evening was the invasion of ants trying to attack the GG team… Thank goodness for good old “Henry” which put a stop to it all.
We ended the evening with a light meal and drinks in a local venue and the company was GoodGymtastic.
Best wishes to:
- James who, on Sunday, will run the Hampton Court half-marathon (as Katie got injured and can no longer participate);
- Adam, Holly, Wayne and Anne who will take part in the Virtual 10K Guiness World Record attempt together with a whole group of GG runners.
Next week we will meet at the WWF and we will run along the canal while picking up litter. If you have a SUP you may wish to bring it along.
In the meantime, happy running everyone
