End of January Challenge Meal, Quiz, Everything Party!

Sun 31 Jan 19:15 pm
Your Street, Your City, Your Postcode
This is our chance to get together virtually for an end of January bash

In order to celebrate the end of this year's January challenge, and anything else we fancy, everyone is invited to our super-bumpertastic virtual party. The more the merrier and you get to do this all from the comfort of your own home.

It all kicks off at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start with the meal. You get to choose what your own theme is. Do you want it to be Asian or Mexican? Then at 8.00pm we will start the quiz. No prizes, just the honour of knowing that until the next one you're the brainiest person in GoodGym and the whole of the world (probably). The quiz will last for no more than an hour. Just have a pen and paper at the ready.

And then from 9pm onwards we can generally freeflow and mingle and if people want to read out a favourite short poem or bit of prose then let's do it. Whatever tickles our fancy really.

Here's the link to the party: Time: Jan 31, 2021 07:15 PM London. Join Zoom Meeting

Meeting ID: 849 1428 7628 Passcode: 787904

A Litter Pick In A Litter Dumping Hotspot

Sun 17 Jan
Report written by Matthew

With equipment supplied by the amazing James Coates at Alley's Angels, Pauline and I went to a hotspot in Anfield to try and clear all the litter there. It really is quite staggering how much rubbish is just dumped but after only an hour Pauline and I managed to clear a whole car load of rubbish, which was swiftly taken to the local tip. The aim is to have a large team of people prepared to do at least one litter pick for an hour a month and with more people doing this the area will gradually be cleared so it is a nicer place to live for everyone. So, if you are reading this and are inspired just get out and start to litter pick.

Making a mole hill out of a mole hill by decanting it (read the review - it will explain all)

Fri 15 Jan
Report written by Matthew

I got in contact with P through my local Next Door site. He is severely disabled and deaf and self-isolating at the moment. Last year someone came to do some paid gardening work for him and removed loads of plants from his back garden, which he didn't want removed and placed them together with what felt like a tonne of soil into his green re=cycling bin. The result of this was that the council couldn't move the bin and therefore couldn't take it away.

Good Gym to the rescue!!! On a freezing Friday morning I was able to gradually decant the contents of the bin into black plastic bin liners and as an added bonus was able to sweep up the leaves in P's front patio area and place them in the now empty bin. It only took me about half an hour to do the whole job but he was so pleased as this has been something that has been worrying him for quite a while now. And of course the best thing is that we do it for nothing. P hadn't heard of Good Gym but was so impressed that he said he would make a donation.
