Not as quiet as church mice

Tuesday 23rd April

Written by Katie London

Another busy foodbank sessions with 25 parcels handed out. The wildlife of All Saints have been adding extra challenges this week but we overcame. It was great to see New Goodgymer Laura completing her first mission and getting stuck into the packing!

Bucket Full Of Bangles

Wednesday 17th April

Written by Jen Stoneham

Tonight's task had Everything I Wanted - a fruitful litter pick and a bit of exercise in a way only GoodGym can do it!

Visiting one of the local underpasses, an early find from Dave was a carrier bag full of bangles - hence a report dedicated to 80s Pop Princesses, The Bangles.

Judy discovered an Eternal (Flame) stream of cans amongst the bushes, and the rest of us had to Walk Like An Egyptian to avoid being bopped on the head by them as they were launched, missile style, to be crushed for recycling.

Katie vowed "I'll Set You Free" to an impressive array of scarves - it was like watching a magician pull handkerchiefs from a hat as she deftly pulled a never ending chain of them from amongst the brambles.

Tracey came Walking Down Your Street with four-legged GoodGymer Ollie, who was very good at sniffing out litter!

Much to the confusion of a local Colas worker, we started a new kind of race - the Vodka Bottle Relay! Jen, Dave and Katie took it in turns to run up the underpass to the bottle bank to deposit our finds. Mr Colas also gave us a couple of extra bags as we found so much litter!

Not so much a Manic Monday but a Winning Wednesday. Most productive and pleasant evening, thanks everyone!

Always bean rice kind

Tuesday 16th April

Written by Katie London

4 goodgymers worked hard to make sure that those in need got a food parcel. We were short of a few items but not of good cheer or muscle power. Despite being out foxed by the mice our resident Cat in the Hat did yet another excellent job stocking, restocking, packing and unpacking the warehouse. Lucy used her professional know how to ensure everyone was safe and happy whilst Fiona tared and weighed like a pro!
