Wild Thing, You Make My Pond Stink

York Report written by Ed Woollard (He/Him)

It was awards night at GG York this week as we celebrated 4 people hitting some pretty chunky milestones. So much so that there wasn't enough capes to go around. But don't worry, everyone had a chance to twirl in the appropriate Cape of Good Deeds at some point.

First up it was the turn of Nick and Nikki who both celebrated their 300th(!) good deeds this evening (or not too long ago, sorry!). Give them a big ol' cheer 👏

Next it was the turn of a very late Abigail who recently completed her 100th good deed. Send some cheers her way 🙌

And since it was the closest group run to valentines day, what better way to name and number off than by naming the thing we love most about GoodGym. Needless to say there were some sickly-sweet answers along with Ed forgetting his wife existed ❤️

Then on to the task sandwiched by the Co-Area Activators where we met by Richard and Martin, who got the biggest cheer of the night for celebrating his 50th good deed. Well done Martin 👏

As for the task itself, there was a very smelly pond, some very squelchy boggy bits, some rapid blackboard painting, some digging and some bark chip spreading. James and Neil spent far too long failing to get some loppers unstuck whilst everyone else got stuck in to the various tasks on offer. So much so that there task was completed with a bit of time to spare 💪

Then it was off to Scarcroft Green for a fitness session that first saw GGers struggle to organise themselves into groups of 4, before having to perform 4 sets of various exercises before a quick dash to drop off a cone (repeat x 4). 4 reps, 4 sets, 4 cones and teams of 4 on a night with 4 milestones celebrated. All that was left to do was head to the pub for a few beers (although I drew the line at 3, not 4. It was a school night after all)

Dive into Cleanliness for January

Barnet Report written by Paul Salman

Throughout January, GoodGym members took on a special community mission: cleaning up their own neighborhoods. With litter picking they showed that small actions make a big difference.

One member, on holiday in Dorset, encountered a local scuba diver emerging from the sea. The diver happily posed with a litter picker.

This encounter inspired a couple of puns : "Dive into Cleanliness: A Splash of Environmental Action" or "Making Waves: GoodGym's Dive into Litter Pick-Up."

Thanks to all those that took part we will look to go next month.

RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2024

Sheffield Report written by Rachel (she/her)

Goodgymmers across the country took an hour out of their weekend to watch their garden for an hour and help the RSPB track bird populations. Well done everyone!

I (Rachel) picked an hour of mostly heavy rain, which probably wasn't in my favour, but meant I got to snuggle in an oodie in the conservatory feeling snug and smug.

Paul - "As I wasn’t expecting to be in the same place for an hour I combined it with a gardening task on Friday. It was a clear sunny day and while some food had been left out, the feathered visitors were not that frequent though. 19 were spotted, mainly pigeons, plus a robin who I have seen there before, along with a few sparrows and a Great Tit who disappeared as soon as the neighbours dog came out."

Gwyn and Tracey from Derby, as last year, visited each others gardens - "Gwyn was able to photograph some birds, whilst I'm only able to take pictures of things that don't move very quickly. We did the RSPB bird watch together twice; at Gwyn's house on Friday, and then at my house on Saturday, so were able to submit two lots of results whilst drinking lots of tea."

Anita - "I logged parakeets, blue tits, a robin, a collared dove and a magpie in a West London garden. I also spotted sanderlings, oyster catchers, gulls, crows and a magpie (and learnt to differentiate waders) in Wales but I don't think the view of a sliver of Swansea Bay really counts as a 'garden'."

Dave - "It was really interesting and made me take much more notice of what different types of bird arrive in the garden.

I was amazed to see a Long Tailed Tit and Siskin (I think) but boringly my garden seems to be most popular with Blackbirds!"

Sarah went for a walk with her son on the transpennine trail getting him engaged in nature.

Naomi - "I was just visited by 2 pigeons, although they flew off before I got a photo! I have cats, so don't encourage birds into our garden, as much as I love them. However I do get to see lots of birds in our neighbour's tree, safely out of the cats' reach!"

Thank you for listing this Rachel. I logged parakeets, blue tits, a robin, a collared dove and a magpie in a West London garden. I also spotted sanderlings, oyster catchers, gulls, crows and a magpie (and learnt to differentiate waders) in Wales but I don't think the view of a sliver of Swansea Bay really counts as a 'garden'.

Bridge over troubled fitness

York Report written by Ed Woollard (He/Him)

On a super chilly January evening, a team of dedicated GG Yorkies braved the sun-zero conditions, and Blue Monday to get that warm and fuzzy feeling you can only get from getting fit whilst doing good.

Tonight we were joined by newcomer Edd who was already very well known to a couple of GGers! We also congratuled Max for his 250th Good Deed, whilst Amy doffed a cape for her 200th. We then named and numbered off by listing our favourite blue things 💙 (a lot of love for blue whales 🐳) with some quiet warm up movements so that we could hear everyone's answers!

Ed led the longer run out to Fulford where the team were met by Nicola from St Nicks and some lovely folk from Greener Cleaner Fulford. After some very clear instructions about ensuring we kept straight lines with our soil inversion, the guys got to work.

Everything seemed to be going well until Max and Nikki realised their digging had gone astray and two lines merged into one. At the other end of the scale Michael, Rich and Jamie managed a circle so perfect that it could have been drawn with a compass.

After some posing next to their beautiful circle, we had our group photo and then headed back via Millennium Bridge for a needlessly complex fitness session. Lesson well and truly learnt by Ed for daring to introduce an element of counting into the fitness.

Mitch led the other team out to Holgate Community Garden and had this to say..

On a chilly winters day, 16 of us went to Holgate Community Garden to help remove areas of heavy grass and weeds, with a view of laying barkchip later. We were also tasked with finding some missing posts surrounding some trees that GG tamped in...unfortunately none were found 🙁

Unfortunately for us, despite all the tools and willingness of GG, the ground was frozen solid, which hampered our progress. However we pressed on and were able to remove a massive load of grass. The temperature was freezing, so for the first time, we had mid task fitness! Half way through we did some hill reps, and after some more task we did some circuits. We made much progress, however the cold and frozen ground did hamper us slightly. However we will be back very soon!
