Cherry Picking and Packing

Redbridge Report written by Linda Sharman

James and Linda arrived at Frenford Food Bank first so did some prep and put away the last of the previous supermarket delivery.

AJ, Tina and Herbert soon arrived and got stuck in to the packing straight away. As the lists and cages have been sorted numerically it became apparent that AJ was working out of sequence, turns out she has always cherry picked the single person parcels as they are the lightest...busted ๐Ÿ˜‚ well to be fair as she said herself she is only little.

We were soon done so moved on to loading up the drivers and sorting out another supermarket delivery.

Finally getting a quiet moment we had a chat with Task Owner Irfan about our complaints - I mean opportunities for improvements- in the ordering processes and packing forms. He seemed to take our suggestions on board well although he did then tell us it was time to go home ๐Ÿ˜‚ At this point Hamad turned up, well we do say timings are loose and anytime you can give is appreciated ๐Ÿ˜ a donation of groceries had just come in and we thought putting that away was a good opportunity for someone new to the foodbank to find their way round the shelves so we left him to it. Sorry Hamad, we were pretty shattered by then, we will show you the ropes properly next time.

Shelf Improver

Redbridge Report written by Linda Sharman

AJ and Linda made it in to Frenford Food Bank by bus and arrived in cheerful mood despite the delays and smelly passengers.

There was an Asda delivery to unpack so Linda set about sorting the crates into one type of product and AJ ensured the contents made it onto the shelf in an organised and tidy manner. As often happens just as we were finishing that one another supermarket delivery came in so we made a start on that too.

There was a little break time for tea and buns but we kept getting distracted leading AJ to break into her Dido impression (๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽตMy teaโ€™s gone cold, Iโ€™m wondering why๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿฅ) after which we put together a package for someone in need to collect.

Then we took the crates of surplus stock out to the storage area where they were equally organised and tidy manner. After this it was time for AJ to leave, sterling job AJ ๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽตAnd Iyeeeee want to thank you ๐ŸŽต๐Ÿฅ๐ŸŽธโ€ฆ.see what I did there? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Catching up in the new year

Redbridge Report written by Peter Van Tongeren

James (new GGR social secretary??) suggested a post Xmas / new year catch up, so after the evenings group run off we went to the local pub for a drink and nibble and chat - Jenny made it down and Ramon came from distance to join in as well.

Litterally a lovely evening

Redbridge Report written by Peter Van Tongeren

It was almost a spring time evening when a lovely mix of Goodgymmers assembled at the Wanstead base.

Both Hamad as Sam came down for their first ever Goodgym experience, a staple of the GG arsenal, a litter pick.

Helen spotted a good target on her way in, so it was decided that the walkers, under watchful eye of Linda, would tackle that one, while the runners would go down the usual pathways along the A12.

The jog down to the paths gave us the chance to get to know Hamad & Sam before getting stuck into the litter pick. As usual, there was enough to find along the path, especially near the Green Man Roundabout. There Sam's local knowledge came to the fore, knowing about a dead fox nearby - now logged again with the council to sort out.

Bags dropped at what is now the usual council bin, off we set on a run around the Leyton Flats, at a lovely pace set by an energetic Sam.

Back at base, people went their own way, happy with a nice evening well spent!

The next couple of group runs are a little up in the air, with a potential Babybank visit on the 19th but perhaps a leaflet drop that week instead - tasks will be updated / logged as soon as we know.
