Gardening at Margaret Matthews Court!

Fri 9 Apr

It's been 18 months since our last visit, so we are super excited to be heading back to Margaret Matthews Court in Rodbourne, to help with a gardening task. This is our third visit to Margaret Matthews Court; the first time we visited we managed to plant some flowers in the shape of the GoodGym logo! Let's see what we can do this time around?!

We have been invited back as a small group of six to make the garden area a little tidier (and perhaps a little chat with the residents from a safe distance).

Please bring gloves, hand sanitiser, antibacterial wipes and a face covering to this task. To ensure that residents remain safe, please note that the maximum number of volunteers allowed at this task is six (maximum) and therefore please DO NOT turn up if you have not signed up beforehand.

Four Steam Ahead

Sat 3 Apr
Report written by Swindon runner

Four runners returned to the fantastic Steam Museum in Swindon to assist in the continuing vaccination program rollout.

The main focus of the day was second jabs of Pfizer for the more mature members of the community and there was a small trickle of youngsters having their first AZ vaccine.

We covered car park marshalling as well as patient coordinator rolls.

I was lucky enough to get my favourite role at the exit door. This is a particularly great job as you are the last person seen as patients depart full of positivity that they finally feel that life is about to restart.

Six Go Gardening - We are back!

Tue 30 Mar
Report written by Paul Bonner

Yes, yes, yes, how great to be back as a group doing a task, and such a wonderful sunny evening for it. Just lovely for this first task back to be at Prince Rupert Court too, where we could see how our previous gardening work still looked good. We could also catch up with old friends, including pen friends! Maureen was the main supervisor again. Two teams were formed, one at the planter and another tackling some larger shrubs. Nobody managed to tame Jason's beard.

It's coming home, it's coming home, Park Run's coming home.....

Sun 28 Mar
Report written by Swindon runner

But not just yet. The government roadmap to bring the UK out of Covid Jail has been announced so there is light at the end of this very long tunnel..... YAY!! It's been a whole year since the UK went into the first lockdown but that didn't deter the good people of Swindon from missing out on our beloved Park Runs and VPR came into fruition. 9 runners / walkers covered pacing duties, tail walkers and marshalling and I was RD for the weekend. I couldn't have done this without the support of my fantastic GoodGym Swindon support team, well done guys! Our thoughts were with Tariq Hussain, a Swindon runner, and his family. Sadly, Tariq was struck by a vehicle whilst out running recently and he lost his battle for his life - RIP dear man. We are very lucky here to have a magnificent support group in Swindon Community Running always full of kindness and sound advice, it really is quite amazing.
