A (virtual) pint of the dark stuff

Sun 19 Sep
Report written by Bethan Greenaway

A HUGE number of Goodgymers rose to the challenge of completing a 10K over the weekend with the aim of becoming world record holders, watch out Mo Farrah!

We will know soon whether the challenge of setting the record for the most people running a virtual 10K run in 2021! Fingers crossed!!

If nothing else us Goodgymers seem to have had a fabulous time. I've very much enjoyed the pictures of ice-creams, beautiful views and gorgeous smiling faces which have been popping up in my inbox.

Well done everyone!

Look after the water table and giant duck!

Amphitheatre next to Maidenhead Library, St Ives Rd, Maidenhead , SL6 1QU
Help out at the Maidenhead Waterways Family Fun Day

Friends of Maidenhead Waterways have been busy planning a family fun day to celebrate the opening of Maidenhead Waterways all the way from Town Moor to Green Lane Weir. They have asked for GoodGym's help with managing a table mounted water game, which shows how locks work. Apparently children love playing with this water table, so chances are we're going to love it too. We will also have the responsibility of looking after a giant duck! This festival is a great opportunity for us to wear our GoodGym t-shirts in town and to tell lots of people about all the awesome things GoodGym does. There are 2 listings for this - 9.50am-12pm and 12pm-2pm. Please sign up here if you want the earlier shift.

Note parking permits are available for stall holders. Please email amylovell@goodgym.org if you need more details.

Even if you don't sign up for the listing, do spread the word and bring your friends and family along to join in the fun!

Good Will Bunting

Sat 11 Sep
Report written by Amanda Quincey

Another good deed done but there was certainly no hanging around on this task! It took the GoodGym crew of Tara, Amanda and Georgeta all of 12 minutes to remove the Maidenhead Show bunting and hand it back to the Craft Coop.

The task was brief..... and so is this report!

Sunset dash & slap (but not slap dash!)

Wed 8 Sep
Report written by Amy Lovell

Such a lovely warm evening for a group run, and great to see such a good turnout, especially considering everyone has been so busy with things like getting kids back to school, moving house, recovering from bronchitis, winning bowls trophies, breaking a thumb, packing for holidays, painting a play house and flying on private jets.

We met at 6.45pm and warmed up at the Windsor FC car park on the edge of Windsor Great Park. We were then treated to a pretty setting sun as we did a lovely green loop in the park before heading to our task location, the Lawns Nursery & Preschool. Walkers and runners took slightly different routes (4km vs 3km) but waved to each other as we dashed round. Thanks to Amanda and Sula, whose local knowledge kept us on track, to walk-leader Tara, and to Sophie and Jess, who back-marked for the runners.

Our task for the evening was fence painting and we decided to focus on the stretch by the sandpit. This worked out well as it was under cover and it started to rain towards the end of the evening. We used brooms to see off the spiders and then slapped on the chocolate covered paint, using torches as the light faded.

The darkness during the Autumn and Winter does bring challenges, but it also casts a sort of magic over the evening.... we're not just painting a fence, we're doing it by torchlight and we're all in it together! It is not something any of us would typically do on our own on a Wednesday night, so it feels more adventurous and special. Darkness is also great for hiding the inevitable paint 'freckles' and 'moles' we seem to end up with...

Having completed the target area, we traded dipping paint-brushes for dipping triceps, and fence planks for side planks. Team spirit was high as we zoomed round a fitness circuit, which also included jump squats, jumping jacks, running, skipping and side-stepping. Neighbours might have mistaken us for a group of giant fireflies or a busy runway with all the head-torches and body lights energetically bouncing around.

We then headed back to our start location running or walking via a more direct route and finished with some stretches and discussion about exciting future plans like a Christmas social and some races to aim for. More details to follow...

Well done everyone on an energetic, productive and sociable evening!

Help TVAP set up for their family fun walk at Dorney Lake

Sat 2 Oct 08:00 am
Dorney Lake, Off Court Lane, Windsor, SL4 6FJ
Set up gazebos and more to help TVAP with their annual fundraiser

Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP) is a charity that offers an amazing range of adventurous, therapeutic and educational play activities for children and adults with all types of disability. This October they have invited us to help set up for their family fun walk at Dorney Lake. This listing is to help set up gazebos and the course. There are also opportunities to stick around to help marshal or run stalls, so please comment below or let Amy know (amylovell@goodgym.org) if you are keen to do that.

As you probably know, Dorney is also a beautiful setting for a run, walk or bike ride! A lap of the lake is roughly 5km and there are lots of options to connect to the Thames Path and/or National Cycle route 4 as well. If you fancy a sociable outing before or after the task then comment below or reach out for buddies in the W&M WhatsApp group (if you're not in the WhatsApp group yet and want to join then contact Amy at amylovell@goodgym.org).

You will be able to park in the main Dorney Lake pay and display car park on the day.
