999 Deeds but the Quiz ain’t one

Sun 28 Nov
Report written by Aine Hester

Two teams enjoyed a fun evening at the coborn as a "1000th task eve" party for Beth including a special team name for the occasion.

We had two teams: 999 deeds but the quiz ain’t one Vs The most normal in the team - (not quite sure of the story here, we'll have to ask Ivy and Jo!)

There were scotch eggs, many red wines, a dessert and a scandalous book - and all of that was before there was even a quiz question asked!

We'll be back again in January to go again.

Fill your belly at Mother Kelly

Thu 4 Nov 19:00 pm
251 Paradise Row, Bethnal Green, E2 9LE
It's the last monthly social until the December monthly social!

This taproom under railway arches is situated close to Bethnal Green tube. Parked outside on the terrace is a street food trailer that combines Japanese and Latin cuisine.

The pub deals with independent breweries from all over the world and claim to have "every style of beer you can imagine". We have every style of person you can imagine, except horrible ones, so don't miss out, come and join us!

On Mother Kelly’s doorstep, down Paradise Row,

I’d sit along old Nelly, she’d sit along old Joe.

She’s got a little hole in her frock, hole in her shoe,

Hole in her sock, where her toe peeped through,

But Nelly was the smartest down our alley. (old music hall song)

Quiz and Chips

Sun 24 Oct
Report written by John Shirley

On Sunday night, GoodGym Tower Hamlets entered no less than three teams into the Coburn pub quiz. The questions were varied and the picture/word quiz was unusual. Out of 18 entries, we had two of the Top Six!

Apologies for the blurred picture of one of the teams. Thanks Aine for organising: we'll be back!

Quiz and Chips!

Sun 24 Oct 18:30 pm
8 Coburn Road, Bow, E3 2DA
Come and answer some questions. Or just make up the numbers...

The Sunday night quiz at the Coburn Arms off Bow Road has been running for years, lockdowns permitting, and we’ve been talking about entering for months. The day has finally arrived, almost, and it’s NEXT SUNDAY! So put your thinking caps on, sharpen your pencils, get a round in and join us as we win a prize! (possibly).

It’s a Young’s pub, with award-winning cask ales available, as well as imported beers, premium spirits and wines from all over the world.

Food is also available, ranging from burgers to fresh market fish to toad-in-the-hole, as well as an all-day brunch menu. One GoodGymer said the fish and chips is “one of the best she’s ever had”.

So sign up for our first quiz night! You don't have to know anything, you just have to be there!

All court up

Mon 20 Sep
Report written by Laura Williams

Well, we didn't plan on a double fitness bill tonight, that's for sure. Who knew.

So a small little group gathered in Museum Gardens this evening, for our pre-task run. It was fantastic to be joined by Nina, who we haven't seen for a while! And although the run started off as a short one on paper, Si thankfully took over and, after some brilliant navigation finding the quietest, longest route (including a lap of Middleton Green), we managed to squeeze in a little bit of extra mileage en route to one of our favourite tasks.

Many hands, etc etc...

Margaret greeted us with a well planned operation: brand new gloves; bundles of bin bags, and the obligatory crash course in "What's-a-weed-and-what's-not." The team busied themselves along Ellsworth Street, weeding the entire border and filling bin liner after bin liner in no time. It felt like we'd only just arrived when we were already posing for our cheerio end shot.

What's a single leg squat between friends?

The task was scheduled to take the GoodGymers ninety minutes but 45 minutes in, we were scrabbling around for the last little weed. "Well, we're here now," we shrugged at 7:15pm, and so we accompanied Margaret to the Nature Reserve to take a quick look at the pond that'll be the job for next week's two-part task (including our Group Run), and then over to the basketball court we headed, where we enjoyed 20 minutes of not-so-easy fitness: a few speedy laps, some balancing lower body work; the obligatory core moves, and some nice stretches, oh, and a last final lap to finish. Not a bad effort at all, team.

Another great evening, doing lots, interacting lots, and just a lot of doing what you do best: combining your fitness and your sense of purpose into a heavenly 90 minutes for all those who come into contact with you. Way. To. Go.

Until next time.
