Making Christmas Cards and Decorations for local care homes

Mon 6 Dec 18:15 pm
The Hive, Portsmouth Central Library , Portsmouth , PO1 2DX
Spread some Christmas Cheer and put smiles on the faces of people isolated this Christmas

The Hive Portsmouth have asked us to create Christmas cards for residents at 3 local care homes and make Christmas decoration for them to put up in their rooms. This is a great task for those who want to get the whole family involved in crafting or if you just want to add a few extra cards to your Christmas card list. Once you have signed up send me a message and I can send you a list of names for your cards. You can do as many or as few as you like! All cards have to be dropped off at Portsmouth Central Library by Monday 6th December - I can deliver them if you want to get them to me earlier than this.

What an awesome recycling team we had, collecting the bottles was not an easy task this year.... Colas had put out stooopid recycling bins, only labelled on one side.... so they didnt work and trying to pull bottles out of the big bins was hard work.

The GoodGym crew as always gave it their best shot, it was great to meet and have Emma​ and Joanne​ on board, they walked all the way to Canoe Lake collecting discarded bottles!!!! Harry​ bought their buddy along, they made a great job of collecting all the bottles as runners crossed the start line. Sinéad was epic and did the double (two days of listening to me moan on....thankyou Sinead!). Lynn and Catherine teamed up - it was lovely to catch up with them when we all met back in the Marquee for lunch 😊. Rosie and India also had to put up with me worrying/moaning about the task in hand..... but they were super supportive and kind and lovely and happily collected as many bottles as they could.

The great thing about the day was that it felt like all of GG Portsmouth were out, either running, cheering or recycling and somehow we all managed to see each other, a lovely GG family event.

Collect Four

Sun 5 Sep
Report written by Katie Carew-Robinson

Emma and Jo had already started their litter pick on the walk down to the meeting point so they already had half a bin bag full before we all met up!

All the usual suspects were picked up with plenty in the recycling bag (now decanted into Tony's dad's green bin and the Morrison's recycling bin). Jo & Emma ticked off the sock from the bingo card and I had just been telling them about finding glasses when Tony found a pair by the dog bin....

We made the decision to go back via the car park off Burrfields Rd where we found a whole bag of shopping dumped as well as numerous cups and wrappers from the local drive throughs.

4 bags filled by 4 people.... That's an impressive hour's work. Good public service by community minded folk!

Sunday Sorting

Sun 22 Aug
Report written by Jen Stoneham

We had a very productive but relaxed morning with lots of chatting, sorting and belching (although that may have just been me).

Our brain cells were also put to the test with having to convert US and European sizes to UK ones.

Nick and Jo carried on beavering away until Midday after I got called away to a family emergency - Naomi House were incredibly grateful for their hard work!

Age Appropriate!

I was very pleased to welcome Mum Joanne and Daughter Emma today at Naomi House for their first Goodgym Mission. Glad to get out of the rain and wind, Lucy who was in charge today, checked us in and took Jo and Emma on a quick tour to cover safety aspects, fire doors, where the toilets were and most importantly where the kitchen was for a cuppa. Lucy had got everything ready for us, we were on children’s clothing today, so we could get started immediately, sourcing small hangers for tops and the clip hangers for skirts, trousers, shorts. Emma had a bit of an advantage as she’d previously done some volunteering at a charity shop, which meant she knew the drill, and Jo was a quick learner. There have been a few changes since I was last at Naomi House – hangers now all face left, and the general layout in the shop is much better with lots of space between rails. Really great for customers who can find specific items and sizes much more quickly. There was a shortage of some of the children’s sizing cubes, so finding the right age to cover the requirement was a bit of a struggle. Jo did a great job sorting through the big basket to source what we needed, and we utilised the ‘small’ or ‘medium’ cubes if we were really stuck. As usual the time went really quickly, but we managed to sort 3+ bags and Emma did a great job getting them out on to the shop floor, with us all getting the last lot out before leaving. After a quick tidy, we said our goodbyes and discovered that the sun had come out for our homeward journey. Looking forward to seeing Jo and Emma again on another Mission soon.
