Picking up where we left off

Thu 29 Apr
Report written by Aimee Bambridge

We were back at the Ouseburn Trust for the first time in a while due to covid. Dave the task owner had been informed of a lot of litter in the car park near the Cycle Hub. So off we went, from the ship container where we meet up and gathered tools, through Ouseburn to the Cycle Hub.

When we got to the Cycle Hub we were surprised how much rubbish there was considering that we did a litter pick there last month and cleared the whole car park. We filled a big bag of rubbish each, mostly with McDonald’s wrappers, cans, pizza boxes and other takeaway containers.

We walked back through Ouseburn carrying the heavy rubbish bags. We saw a swan sitting on the nest. It was really lovely to see the Ouseburn valley coming back to life with people outside the pubs and restaurants.

Well done everyone. An extra well done to Rae on reaching 10 good deeds!

Up, down and around on the Tyne

Thu 8 Apr
Report written by Anji Andrews

It's been way too long since our last face to face fitness session and it was so good to catch up on a chilly night by the Tyne.

Everyone's favourite sister act Tanya and Deb were along for the session together along with Sally, Max (he cycled there so technically its a duathlon) and Rae.

I was so excited to get the ladder, cones and whistle out .. and most importantly the GGNCL FLAG!

The session included:

Warm up

Mobility drills

Ladder drills

Five minute fartlek

Hill technique

Hill sprints

Stretching

I was so impressed with everyone's effort and it was brilliant to be back. I will list another of these sessions soon but don't forget to join us for the next Walk, Talk and Donate on Monday if you can.

Cereal Shelf Filters

Wed 17 Mar
Report written by Aimee Bambridge

Regulars at the East End Women food bank, me and Max were back for this wednesday bonus community mission.

Max's main task was unpacking tinned food from the latest delivery into creates of the same kind of food and putting them in the correct section on the shelves. It was great to see the additional shelving up and the huge difference it made. It was now much easier to locate all the different types of foods and get crates out than when they were all piled on top of each other.

My job was restocking the main shelves with the items from the creates in the other room. I started with UHT milk and breakfast cereals, before moving on to tinned food such as chickpeas, beans and rice pudding. No prizes for where my mild craving for rice pudding came from!

Max also helped taking deliveries out to the drivers when needed. The time flew by and in no time the hour was up!

Wednesday's favourite duo did another amazing job at East End Women foodbank this week!

We helped to install and stock shelves last week and thanks to more generous donations, there was plenty for Max and Sara to get involved in this week too. Max arrived (braving the switch back to cold weather!) on his bike while Sara did a bus and walk combo.

The unstoppable pair of GoodGymers helped to stock cars going out on deliveries as well as making sure the shelves were fully stocked and organised for the days ahead.

Great work!

Go and give Max a cheer for getting on his bike and getting to the Community Mission yesterday despite suffering with some pretty awful vaccine side effects. Talk about taking one for the team!

Max, Neil and Sara completed a busy hour at East End Women foodbank where they helped to build, assemble and stock the shelves ready for the new deliveries. Its amazing to see how this charity has really stepped up to a difficult challenge and we are really proud to be part of it.
