Life’s a Freeze!

Mon 7 Dec
Report written by Mark Webber

Back to work after the second lockdown and it was certainly a little chillier than the first one! Stephen and Mark met George at St Thomas Church Hall on Earlham road and were soon put to work digging over a bed due to have a new tree and flowers in the spring.

Thoughts of spring seemed quite far off as it was -1 but digging kept us warm and we had a lovely chat with George and the work he helps organise with the voluntary greening group http://www.heavenlygardens.co.uk

When our hour was up we handed over to Hayley and Andy (both more sensibly attired!) and escaped to the warm.

Was great to catch up with people and get back to doing something useful!

Mark Webber has done a 6 month mission streak. Mon 2 Nov 2020

Mark just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Mark a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.

A new broom sweeps clean(ref US elections)

Mon 2 Nov
Report written by Andrew Ralph

The build up to this task seemed to raise a few challenges as we had been asked to being our own tools so part of the mission was to transport your chosen equipment to the venue safely. I would like to apologise for not knowing the name of the lady who hosted us for this task. This important oversight did not detract how wonderfully we swept the leaves from the carpark, pulled up weeds from cracks in the pavement and cleaned the outside of the windows!! One of our Goodgymers found his way to a Hamlet centre on the other side of the city after his phone battery ran out en route to the task( your determination to attend has not gone unrecognised) The joy of Goodgym is how clearing up leaves on a cold dark Monday evening can be so enjoyable! Will miss these missions during lockdown.

Maintenance @ Hamlet Charity Children's Centre

Mon 2 Nov 18:00 pm
Johnson Place, Norwich, NR2 1SJ
Support local charity

The Hamlet Children's Centre would love GoodGym to help tidy their outdoor area.

Please bring your own gloves and a head torch if you have one.

Meet at the Hamlet Children' Centre at 6pm (top of Grapes Hill).

As they have no tools, we will need to bring our own (brooms, secateurs etc). These can be dropped off before the task, would someone who is attending be able to coordinate that please?

A tidy up for Eaton Park's historic bandstand and rotunda buildings

Mon 9 Nov 18:00 pm
Eaton Park (meet at the bandstand), South Park Avenue, Norwich, NR4 7AZ

Please note that this community mission has been cancelled.

This area is very well used and well-loved. People like to see that the park and its buildings are being cared for.

The bandstand and the four rotunda quadrants around it are grade II listed buildings at the heart of the park. The covered walkways and steps attract gravel, litter and natural debris such as twigs, all of which combine to make the area look a little scruffy. We would like to clear the debris and return the gravel to the central area where it belongs.

Please bring your own gloves.

Meet at the band stand at Eaton Park at 6pm.

Fork, that was wet!

Mon 12 Oct
Report written by Jonathan

17 Goodgymers decended onto Oxford St (not quite as busy as the one in London) in Norwich where Somerleyton Gardens is located. With the two main tasks being to maintain the garden and do a leaflet drop, and with there still being a lot of daylight, Goodgymers divided into two main groups with one distributing leaflets to nearby residents and the other groups splitting into two more groups to remove stubborn weeds and bigger thornier plants.

With it quickly getting a lot darker, it suddenly became difficult for those without head torches to spot weeds so it was time to wrap up and bring their bagged up garden waste together and get ready for a group photo! With that done and the rain starting to arrive, everyone went off in their different directions having successfully completed another task. For those running or biking back a long distance, it was going to be a very wet journey back.

Thank you to Mark and Liz for their photographs.

Welcome to James, Jessica and Lena for their first GoodGym task.
