Maneva completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Maneva was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Maneva 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.
"That was a proper full-body workout!" ~ Tanya
We certainly put the "gym" into GoodGym at our visit to Ouseburn Trust today where despite the wet and cold conditions, six of us wrapped up (except Tom) and showed up to get the weekend off to a good start.
Brilliantly organised as always, task leader Dave met us with some clear tasks and tools at the ready.
Path clearing was on the agenda today and hopefully you can see from the photos what an amazing job we did in under an hour. This is an area that quickly becomes overgrown and it was definitely a battle against weeds, won!
Go and give Hazel a big cheer for her first ever GoodGym experience on such a terrible day, and to Manevasoa for her first Community Mission.
Join in with (hopefully drier) litter picking tomorrow if you can.
Ouseburn Trust would like our help to pick litter and clear paths to help keep the area clean and inviting.
Please come dressed for the weather as appropriate. Tasks will be decided on the day.
Meet on the grass under the bridge between the Ship Inn and Ouseburn Farm.
We met up for a beautiful evening walk last night and it was so brilliant to see real people in a group in real life after way too long.
As well as being our first fitness session since the last lockdown, it was our donation session and generous GG members brought along a stack of Easter eggs which we are donating to East End Women. These eggs will go to families who might not otherwise receive an egg.
It was brilliant to welcome two new GoodGymers: Olivia and Manevasoa as well as Katy's baby bump!
During our 3k walk we caught up on everyone's news and discussed the new changes that are coming to GoodGym Newcastle in the coming months. There is an air of optimism and it feels great. Hope to see you soon!
Join us for Spring evening walk at Newcastle Quayside as we meet for a long overdue catch up.
If you'd like to donate an Easter Egg to the families in the East End Women foodbank, this is your chance as I will be doing an egg drop off on Wednesday March 31st just in time for the Easter break. You don't need to bring one to join in!
Hope to see you there.
