100 !!!

Sat 21 May
Report written by Peter Van Tongeren

Just to clarify a point that was mentioned early on today - this wasn't a celebration of two GGers becoming 100 each, but more like together -> 60 + 40 = 100!

Now that is clarified, the adventures at this afternoon.

The gang gathered at Fairlop Waters for a little picnic to celebrate Julia's & Linda's birthdays, which added up to 100 together as mentioned. The weather cooperated and the former golf course provided more than enough space for our gathering... and leave room for some wedding pictures being taken as well (no, not GG related, we think)

Besides everyone bringing some snacks & drinks, Ed brought along some games to play as well.

Badminton with oversized equipment didn't last that long, not in the least when the conversation turned to comparing (shuttle)cock sizes

However Rounders was a bigger success.... some stars in the making it seems!

Unfortunately, all good things come to an end, so we said our goodbyes, leaving just some flattened grass as evidence of our presence.

P.S.... anyone know of a fellow Goodgymmer reaching the 40 milestone around November? Asking for a friend... P.S.S... thanks to Kathryn for the great mugs

Linda and Julia are turning 100 YEARS OLD (together) - come and celebrate with a picnic and some games!

Joy

That's right, J&L are 100 in May and they couldn't just ignore it without celebrating it with the lovely company of fellow goodgymmers - everyone is welcome, we hope to see folks from other boroughs!

The plans are rather loose but we are hoping for good weather so that we can enjoy the nature of Fairlop Waters and play some summery games like rounders, frisbee and anything else that comes to mind!

If the weather is bad we can hide away in the lovely Boathouse that has a cafe and a restaurant.

Let us know if you can come along - will be great to celebrate gettting more mature with you!:)

Terrific trolley filling effort at the foodbank

Sat 23 Apr
Report written by Jenny McCurry

Another busy day at Frenford, it was great to see Matt there for the first time. This week we were packing trolleys full of food before they headed out for delivery to local people.

Despite a slightly late start by Jenny and Kathryn (oops) we got all the parcels packed very quickly. The team worked hard and we quickly moved on to restocking the shelves and getting everything ready for the next shift. Well done everyone, see you next time!

Nargis has done a 6 month mission streak. Sat 12 Mar 2022

Nargis 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 Nargis a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.

Trolley Dollies and Shopping Follies

Sat 12 Mar
Report written by Linda

Picking and packing at Redbridge Mutual Aid Food Bank is always hectic but fun. A slight change to the process caused a little controversy over what got packed where on the trolleys resulting in Linda managing to swap packing lists with Valerie throwing a little spanner in the works for a minute or two. We had a late sign up surprise with our Dharmesh turning up Park Run fresh... according to our GG Park Run spy Ed, Dharmesh was on pretty good form too. Seeing we had run out of toothpaste GG Peter donned his superhero cape and flew off to the local shop to get some. As usual our Nargis quietly busied herself where ever she was needed. Jay almost got herself jailed in the corner by a trolley but was soon free and making herself useful with the packing. As always it was a busy, bustling but generally good humoured session with everyone ending up tired but happy.
