The City Farm is behind the Isis Care Home on Cornwallis Road. Meeting options:

3 GoodGym teams enjoyed an evening of trivia at the White House by Tap Social. Alongside the usual 'General Knowledge', and 'Film and TV', more unusual rounds included "Name that Drag Queen" and "Unfamous siblings of famous people". The Eel on Musk Rats came joint first, only losing out in a tie-breaker game of Rock Paper Scissors. A warm welcome to all the first-timers who joined and we hope to see you again soon!
Test your trivia at the White House Pub Quiz. £2 per person entry. Teams of 6. Big cash prizes plus a runner up prize. Quiz starts 7.30pm, meet at 7pm.

Jessica just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Jessica a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.
We've been regular volunteers at the Oxford Mutual Aid food bank for 18 months, but with work getting busy the time has come to re-evaluate the Wednesday 4pm-6pm shift there. A solid final (for now) Wednesday afternoon shift saw us packing dozens of food parcels for distribution, and also prepping some Emergency Requests. Despite the busy shift we found a bit of time at the end to restock shelves, reorganise some of the crates to unearth the ones being collected early Thursday morning, and get the food waste out into the big bins.
Well done everyone who has been involved with the food bank shifts over the last 18 months. You have helped thousands of people. We'll take a short break from the weekly commitment, but do keep your eyes open for some shifts at other times after the Easter weekend - we'll try a few different time slots out every now and then to find something that works better for the team now that life has returned to something close to normal.
The Town and Gown is a fab run around Oxfors, starting and finishing in Uni Parks.
I thought it would be great to support each other on the day and maybe even meet up for a coffee and snack afterwards as the triumphant athletes that we are!
There is still time to enter if you fancy it. Registration link is here
We will have 2 tasks tonight. This is the early shift at Oxford Mutual Aid, and there will also be a task for the larger group at Iffley Glebe afterwards. It would be possible to do both if you want a full evening of GoodGyming.
We will be based inside Richard Benson Hall preparing food parcels in the food bank and helping the delivery drivers load them into their cars. We will do some restocking of the shelves and cleaning too.
Please wear a mask. Anwen will be at the hall from about 4pm, so feel free to turn up any time between 4pm and 4:30pm.
We had a lovely evening of chat, drinks, dressing up and games at the Lord Mayor's Parlour to belatedly celebrate GoodGym Oxford's 3rd Birthday.
Congratulations everyone for smashing past 5000 Good Deeds in 3 years!
Thank you Mark for hosting us.
We’ve got another chance to have a ‘do’ at the Lord Mayor’s Parlour, this time to mark (pun intended) 3 years of GoodGym in Oxford.
We will have a couple of hours to relax in the grand surroundings of the town hall and toast friendships made, good deeds done, and all the ways you’ve made the city a better, more connected place over the last 3 years.
