Meeting at the WWF Carpark steps - look out for the GG Red T-Shirts. There is parking available if you are driving.
From here we will walk down the canal, picking up any litter along the way. Last litter pick we came to a park area where there was A LOT of litter. We will continue in this area and clear the rubbish.
*Please remember your gloves and bring your own litter picker if you have one. *
You can purchase a foldable litter picker on amazon which is great if you are running to the meet up area.
An evening of Brambles and Nettles
Last night Woking GG members met at the Millbrook RSPCA center to help clear the brambles and nettles which go along the horse paddock.
It's been almost 9 months since we have been to the RSPCA and it's one of nicest spots for a mission. We were working along side a pregnant horse who was due to give birth any day. With 6 of us working hard, we managed to clear the whole side of the field!
A big welcome back Susan who joined us for her second mission but first one of this year!
James was on top form and being the only male, he may have got picked on slightly. I promise I won't write anything bad! Although the best comment of the night was James to be the new Milky Bar Kid!! I can see the similarities :
A big well done to every one again!
Next week we will be at:
Brockhill Care Home - The task will be starting at 7pm. I know some at meeting at 6:45pm at the WWF carpark to run to the mission! Please remember your Masks for this mission!
Meeting at the carpark at the RSPCA in Millbrook. Our task is to remove the brambles from around the horse paddocks.
Please remember your own gloves. Tools will be provided.
As we still not allowed to meet up in mass, we thought a litter pick in your local community would still make a small difference and help to keep fit and get outdoors, and whats a better day than valentines day. No where open to go on a date- get outside and pick up the litter, with more and more people going out and exploring new surroundings you can see the effect and with some people not taking their litter with them, its horrible for the environment and the poot animals who were there first!
GG WOKING set up the challenge to members to get out and do some good in their local community. A fantastic effort and its great seeing the families of GG members getting out and helping too!
Susan completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Susan was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Susan is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
Last night 6 GoodGym members went to the Food Bank in Woking to prepare food packages for the Salvation Army to distribute.
We welcomed Susan as a new GoodGym member and we are very happy to know her.
Anne, Katie and Adam braved the cold weather to run the 5k from Woking town centre to the location near Knaphill, while James, Lou and Susan sensibly drove!
We all enjoy helping the foodbank and they do such great work for our community so we are very happy to get involved.
Once there we received our usual warm welcome and got stuck right in to preparing 60 bags of shopping for families and 40 bags of shopping for single people. We worked hard to give each beneficiary a nice selection of foods and treats and were finished in around 90 mins which was a great achievement.
Once finished, and a quick tidy up, we posed for a few photos and left, with Adam, Anne and Katie once again braving the cold to run the 5k home.
Next session will be back to do further work at the allotment on Saturday 19th and we hope to see as many people as possible for some digging!
Meeting at the base of Woking Foodbank.
We will be putting together Christmas packages for the salvation Army.
