This is open to absolutely EVERYONE whether you've just joined recently or simply haven't been for ages.
GoodGym Newcastle launched in April 2018 and is almost 4 years old which is brilliant. During that time we have completed an amazing 3,628 good deeds! (including 44 missions to help older people, 396 group runs/community missions and 332 coach visits)
So come along and enjoy a friendly relaxed catch up over coffee (or tea/juice!) A brilliant opportunity to discover what GoodGym Newcastle is all about, meet new friends or just catch up with others you haven't seen for a while.
This is also a great opportunity to invite others (family/friends) to sign up for the first time and chat to others about their experiences with GoodGym.
We will just meet outside (fingers crossed for good weather) and if there is enough interest, I will see if I can reserve tables/a space for us.
Feel free to pop along and drop by, or stay as long as you like!
No fitness involved at all (unusual I know!) but feel free to meet up beforehand for a walk, run or cycle!
(The car park at the Cycle Hub is free and a great place to meet but may be busy on a Sunday due to the Quayside Market)
Kaz completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Kaz was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Kaz is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
it was a small but great group made up of Louise, Kaz and myself.
We were helping the Ouseburn Trust and joined up with their regular volunteers/enviornmental group who maintain the area of Ouseburn.
I was limited because I have a fractured hand but it was still great to be involved, pick up some litter with one hand, take photos and catch up with everyone.
Louise got stuck in with lopping (always a favourite GoodGym task) and clearing back brambles/weeds.
Kaz did a brilliant job of litter picking where we were based and filled up a whole bag (please give Kaz a cheer as it was her first ever GoodGym good deed!)
Please meet under the bridge by The Ship Inn, Ouseburn.
Ouseburn is an amazing hidden gem and we will be helping out with a range of tasks to keep the area looking splendid.
Can't wait to see you!
