Pete Emery has earned their community cape by completing their first community mission. Sat 22 May 2021

Pete completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Pete was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.

It’s fun to PAINT at the YMCA

Sat 22 May
Report written by Nicky West

Despite a very damp start to the day 8 intrepid GoodGymers were keen to get out in the fresh air and get back to doing some good!

To kick start their Saturday, 5 of our group decided to top and tail the mission with a 4 mile run and they all arrived warmed up and raring to go!

Today's community mission was at Derby YMCA where we were helping to tidy up and paint an outdoor community garden space.

We quickly set to work litter picking, turning over the soil and learning a new technique in fence painting with dustpan brushes, which proved to be more effective than expected!

We were joined by two of the YMCA residents who were a fantastic addition to the team and definitely helped to keep us all motivated. It was great to learn about all the residents who are helped by YMCA and the great work that they do across Derby.

After a whirlwind couple of hours we managed to dodge the rain, dig over the soil, re-painted the raised beds, planted flowers, spread out the bark and cleared the garden of rubbish!

A huge thanks to YMCA for inviting us to help out and thank you to Rachel for connecting us with them. We all agreed it was great to be back together again and we can't wait to get back out running very soon!!

The Fab Four meet again

Tue 20 Apr
Report written by Rachel Carthy

We met again on Tuesday night for a socially-distanced social run around Markeaton Park.

Two laps meant we travelled 5k whilst seeing lots of activity in the park from people on the tennis courts to a fair being set up. Some of the members were now confident in the route around Markeaton Park and could take in the scenery knowing what was coming next...starting at the tennis courts does mean we start with the one hill within the park but it means it's over with pretty quickly, well, until the second lap.

Thank you to everyone who joined in this evening and for representing GoodGym in your tshirts!

See you next Tuesday!

Springing into action

Tue 13 Apr
Report written by Rachel Carthy

A great start to GoodGym Derby in-person training sessions!

We met by the tennis courts at Markeaton Park and had a chat about running experience, how long people had been a member with GoodGym and of course the million dollar question....who has been to the pub since they opened yesterday?!

Two laps meant we travelled 5k and then some, it was great to see people out and about in green spaces again.

Thank you to everyone who joined in this evening.

We're back and on a mission!
