Heavy lifting

Tuesday 20th February

Written by Jax Burgoyne

Great fun and glad to help. Also very glad that three of us made it - there were quite a few heavy things on the kerb by the end of it!

Hitch took the photos, so here's Basil!

Can you Sea in the dark?

Monday 19th February

Written by Steven Hitcham

Tonight's task was to clear some overgrown areas at Mousehold Sea Scouts.

A big welcome to Melpo, who was taking part in her first good deed.

It was hard to see in the dark but we done a grand job, which was well attended with 15 people.

The Red (B)Arrows

Saturday 17th February

Written by Steven Hitcham

The Friends of Waterloo Park had called upon GoodGym Norwich to help transport about 80 bags of compost to the park from a nearby location.

A big welcome to Poppy who was doing her first good deed, and to Harriet who was doing her first in Norwich.

We didn't hold back and got stuck into the task, forming a conveyor belt of GoodGymers going and and down the road and park with wheelbarrows full of the odour filled bags of mushroom compost.

The Friends of Waterloo Park also provided plenty of their helpers to spread all of the mushroom goodness across their flower beds.

It was a wonderful team effort and we got the whole job done in less than an hour.

Written by Elizabeth H

It was a mild 12degrees this Parkrun morning and 332 turned out to enjoy it to. We had tourists and 2 first timers and our very own Catton Parkrun Dan who was dressed in an inflatable Giraffe outfit which he was trying out for his Cambridge Half Marathon run which he is running raising money for BREAK Charity. Goodgymers running today were Rob R, Katie (&buggy), Jonathan, & Alina. For me barcode scanning it was off to Waterloo Park for Goodgym gardening mission

Picking a Winner

Monday 12th February

Written by Steven Hitcham

We had a last minute change of task. Due to staff shortages, we were unable to visit our original planned task of visiting Dell Rose Court. Instead, thanks to Beks, we did a litter pick along Lakenham Way to help keep Norwich tidy.

Tailwalker #2

Saturday 10th February

Written by Elizabeth H

Tailwalker again today with our lovely young person DoE on her last few weeks with us, tackling the Tailwalker role. All went well until the person we were behind decided to finish after the first time round which, of course, doesn’t matter but for us Tailwalkers who have to be behind the last people, we had to sprint up the middle path & cut across the field to catch up with the Parkwalkers at the oak tree. Job done we continued our role but felt we’d cheated but we made up km by having to walk further round the Catton “lake” than normal. It may have been very muddy today but the weather was lovely.
