Karen Whitehead has run 100 good deeds with GoodGym. Mon 20 Sep 2021

Karen has just reached another level: 100 good deeds with GoodGym. That's at least 100 times when they could have easily done something easier. But they didn't, Karen has kept going and going. Helping a lot of other people and getting a bit fitter at the same time. Congratulations Karen.

Helping Clear Some Ovegrown Shrubs For Local Residents

Thu 16 Sep

A local part of our town has become overgrown with brambles and weeds etc and is untidy, an eyesore and quite unsafe for local residents. We have already done one session here but it's safe to say there's still plenty more work to keep us busy!

With a few pairs of Goodgym hands, I’m sure we can have the area cleared in no time.

Please come and join us with a thick pair of gardening gloves (and probably some long trousers!) to help whip this area into shape.

A Perfect Night - Litter-ally!

Wed 15 Sep
Report written by Nicola Marshall

It was a beautiful evening last night and the feeling of summer was definitely still in the air. It was wonderful to see Maurice sporting his new 100 task T-shirt!!! A first for Goodgym Crewe, but definitely not the last!

6 lovely Goodgym members walked their way to the task for an evening of fitness and litter picking in some local green space and woodland. Our task wasn’t quite what we had planned but with the weather being so beautiful, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as were able to enjoy a lovely walk combined with some good deeds.

We had a walking group and a running group this evening and so after our warm up, we set off with a plan to meet en-route on the way back. Maurice, Karen & Nicola were in the running group and Alison, Emma & Rob were in the walking group. We each start off by running through the woods, down to the path that followed the brook. The path can be quite busy at times as it’s a popular spot with dog walkers, runners and people just generally out enjoying the fresh air, and last night, the late evening sun.

The running group did a 2 mile run down the path, across the road and almost to the Rising Sun Pub – a stop off for a swift, cold half was tempting but we resisted – and back. The plan was to meet with the walking group somewhere along the route but sadly, it didn’t quite work out that way, lol! However, all is well that ends well as the walking group collected the litter pickers back from base and met us down by the play area.

Litter wasn’t aplenty this evening but to be honest, I’m not complaining – that was really a good thing. It didn’t stop us from having fun, laughter and good chats as we were on our mission to fill a bag or two. We even found some time for some fun on the children’s play area where one or two of us regressed back to our childhoods – again!

I think I speak for everyone when I say that we enjoyed a lovely evening in the last rays of the summer sun. By the time we got back to base though – it was really dark. We managed to get a decent haul of rubbish in the end – most of which was collected from the last street we walked up.

It was a really lovely evening, spent in really lovely company as always. Well done everyone!

Woodland Litter Pick

54 Beech Drive, Crewe, CW2 8RG
Making the area tidier and safer for everyone who lives there

Tonight we are going to be doing a litter pick down at a local community area - Joey the Swan. This is a beautiful green space that is regularly used by the local community for recreational activities - often used by local scouting groups, running clubs and fitness groups.

Like so many of these spaces, they often fall victim to litter bugs! It's such a shame but that's where we swoop in to help....

Tonight we will be collecting as much rubbish as possible to make the area an even nicer place to be than it already is!

Come and join us for some fun, fitness, friendship and the feel good factor!

Let's Cut To The Chase

Mon 13 Sep
Report written by Nicola Marshall

There’s simply no stopping this dedicated bunch of Goodgym devotees. Some weeks, some of these amazing members take part in an incredible amount of voluntary work – not all of which is for Goodgym. They are true community heroes!

Tonight was another fabulous evening spent in lovely company down at the Wishing Well. The allotment really has become a bit of a Goodgym baby – especially for those who have been so actively involved in it from day 1. We’ve really watched it transform over the months and that’s all down to the hard work of these fabulous members. It’s a delight to know that the work that’s been put in is being enjoyed – either through people enjoying the tidied up space or enjoying the produce that’s been grown and harvested from the raised beds.

Tonight Barry, Pam, Karen, Nigel, Claire & Maurice spent a lovely evening together mowing the lawns, weeding, pruning and picking litter. It was another super productive evening and everywhere was looking fabulous after an hour of hard graft from this inspiring team.

Well done everyone on another evening of hard work for an amazing cause!!
