Hit the lanes - Bowling Night

Fri 29 Oct 19:00 pm
Cardiff Superbowl, Stadium Plaza, Wood Street, Cardiff, CF10 1LA
Let's get together for some bowling fun

We will be hitting Superbowl at the Principality Stadium, we will need to know in advance how many people are coming so that we can make the booking.

Michael will sort this out, it's £7.80 for one game or £12.50 for two games, but this can be sorted out once we know how many people are coming.

As we will be in town for this, we will more than likely go out for a few drinks afterwards - the train station is nice and close so you can leave your cars at home and have yourselves a good ol' party.

I like BIG BUDDHA's and I can not lie

Tue 21 Sep
Report written by Michael

A great return to times gone by with 20 goodgymers joining for tonight's Tuesday session.

Welcome back to Siki for your second group activity, great to see you back with us again.

First timers, Hayley, Jamie and Hannah welcome to your first group run with goodgym Cardiff and the Vale.

A shorter run tonight meant only one thing, time to insert an exercise routine... YES I hear you cry. We bid farewell to the walk / joggers and made our way to the park to start a quick routine, the music began and so did the pain, but it felt good. All of a sudden the time had flown by and we realised we had to make our way to the task, so off we went.

By 19:00 we had all arrived at Samye ready to get going with a list of tasks, we had a white board made up instructing us for the evening.

  • Painting one of the rooms.
  • Emptying out some items from the attic.
  • Weeding the front entrances to the buildings.
  • Weeding around the back in the community garden space.
  • Moving the Buddha water feature from the back to the front seating area.
  • And finally, removing the crocosmia (montbretia) from the front planters.

It was a good job we had 20 of us tonight, so we split into our groups and got to work.

Straight to work were team 'crocosmia', ripping out the plants and bunching them for anyone that wanted to take some home. Whilst a beautiful plant when they flower, they can soon take over a plot by spreading, I will be putting them into planters ready for next year.

Next to get in were the painters, grabbing rollers, trays and paint they made their way into the building to start the transformation. The colours were bright and very Tibetan Buddhist, the room will look wonderful once finished.

Weeding teams got to work at the front and back of the building, getting the paving looking tidy once more and making the whole centre much more welcoming.

Lorraine took up the team to open up the attic and talk them through what needed to be removed, whilst I went over to the final few to start moving the brilliant Buddha water feature. It was by no means a small thing, with the pedestal being made of concrete slabs and blocks, once the attic team had finished they joined up to help move the Buddha and rebuild within our time.

Tools down, get some grub.

Lorraine was a wonderful host tonight and made up some snacks, so it was time to clear up and take some time to chat, laugh and eat. However, it took far too long to get the painting team to put down their rollers and enjoy some food. We will return soon to finish off the painting and get through some additional tasks, don't you worry about that TEAM.

A quick photo and suddenly it was dark and time to get back to our start location. It's time to get your lamps ready........

Wrong LAMP!

Head or body they all work well, but they will most certainly be needed over the next few months so have a look online as we all need to stay safe with our exercise.

Absolutely Rubbish! (Scuse the pun)

Sun 19 Sep
Report written by Sarah Lou

The area today was pretty clean so we walked until we found some. Everybody was welcoming and friendly. My son and I had fun. This has prompted us to do more in our own area in our spare time in addition to joining Good Gym.

Thanks guys

Samba Saturday

Sat 18 Sep
Report written by Michael

We changed our plans for today's task, due to some recent vandalism in our beloved park and all the negative press that has been around the people of Cardiff had decided to do something about it. So was born the 'Reclaim the Park' Walk, to show that we are many and we are positive, happy, loving people that will not get down (unless to the music). Goodgym were called to do our thing and we were only too happy to oblige, we were going to talk to people beforehand and generally socialise then lead the walk and back mark as stewards.

We had press to hopefully show some positive news for once, whilst showing the people take on the park on mass. Numbers were easily in the hundreds, after the welcome speech from a few people the Samba band warmed up and we led the way.

There was another event in the park that day so there were some last minute changes so as not to ruin their run, it all went really smoothly as we danced our way around 2 km of the park. Plenty of passers by joined in the dancing and the whole thing put smiles on all the faces we spotted along the way.

It all ended back where we began, plenty of people stayed on for picnics, games and chatting. It felt like a really positive day and we had the chance to meet lots of new people, including a couple that signed up to our litter pick the next day.
