On a roll

Angela Shaw completed 25 good deeds with GoodGym.

Angela has already done 25 good deeds with GoodGym. Instead of doing anything else, they've used their run to go and help people that need their help; digging, lifting, scraping, clearing, planting and weeding. Stuff that makes this a better place to be.

Luke-ing down the barrow of a pun (but don't forget to leaf time for cake!)

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Amy L (she/her)

Well done to the 14 superstars who came out this evening for a slice of the GoodGym action. After the recent rain it was great to get out for fresh air, fitness, gardening and most importantly CAKE in celebration of Matthew's 50th good deed and Nicola's 100th (and her 101st!) It was also lovely to welcome Tori for the first time.

We had a change of task because our chair man wasn't available to lead the chair mending session. Instead we ran and walked the 1km to St Luke's for some more gardening. Kudos to the runners, who put in some extra laps of Kidwells Park, and to the GoodGymers who live near the school, so did the journey twice. This time the to do list included emptying planters, re-homing plants and clearing leaves.

Oh the places you'll grow!

Nicola nuts, Tori tiramisu, Angela apple, Toni duck, Juli jelly, Rachel raclette and Georgeta grapefruit tackled the planters, and did a lovely job of tucking the evicted plants into their new beds. There was also an intense chat about a drain.

On track for some terrible puns

Sophie sushi, Jess jellybean, Adam avocado, Matthew mars bar, Scarlett sugar and Ben (who missed the foodie ice breaker and is probably wondering what just happened) took the wheel barrow and hippo sack to the running track on a leaf clearance mission. Of course you wouldn't be-leaf the puns this prompted. Just as they were getting into their punning stride, we decided it wheely was time to leaf, after all there was cake to eat!

150 reasons for cake

Huge congratualtions to Nicola and Matthew, who have totted up an awesome 150 GoodGym good deeds between them. I presented them each with a medal and then we all enjoyed lots of cake. Juli made a gorgeous vegan chocolate cake for Matthew's 50, complete with the number 50 made of grapes, and Georgeta made a stunning carrot cake for Nicola's 100, which was topped with angel wings and a big 1-0-0 made by Sophie - thank you bakers!

As is now customary for a 100, we also had a poem:

Three cheers for Nicola Hine!

Fitness and good deeds she likes to combine.

And now she’s done 99

Good deeds (plus 2), so it’s party time!

Sorry I’m a bit late with this rhyme

Our GoodGyming plans didn’t quite align

And I think my writing is in decline

But we’re all friends here, so never mind!

Nicola’s in her GoodGyming prime

She’s made bunting out of twine

She made an awesome Windrush sign

And made the path a nice straight line.

She helped to clear that pond of slime

She sweeps up leaves and cleans up grime

She decorated our Christmas pine

And back marks so no one is left behind.

Communication is her place to shine

Her reels are much better than mine

Her run reports are so sublime

And her insta advent calendar blew my mind.

Outside GoodGym she doesn’t just recline

She does parkrun – even the incline!

Her blanket for niece Thea was a gorgeous design

And her travel photos are simply divine.

You’re a top GoodGymer Nicola Hine!

So let’s raise an imaginary glass of wine

Hip hip hooray we all shall chime

And on this cake we all shall dine.

Now you see it....now you don't!

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Jess Smith

14 Goodgymmers breezed through the task at St Luke's School!

Everyone made their way to the school and we gathered in the car park to hear our list of tasks from Juli:

  • Dismantle the shed
  • Remove the plants from the planters
  • Dismantle the planters
  • Remove the soil
  • Clear weeds between the paving slabs
  • Sweep the area

Although this sounds like a lot, the shed was quickly reduced to planks, the plants were uprooted, the planters were ousted, the soil was cleared and the weeds were extracted and the area was swept! If you blinked you missed it all!

All the debris was piled into the skip out the front and the soil was placed in a heap next to it. This was done using the largest wheelbarrow we had come across, so not as many trips were needed, and some old fashioned people power!

The team couldn't believe how quickly the list was completed and everyone gathered for a group photo on the benches in the lovely clear play area.

The Hole of the Century

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

An amazing 8 Goodgymmers gave up their Saturday afternoon to help prepare the Community Allotment for Spring and get it all spruced up for Theresa May's visit next week. We had a long list of tasks, so decided to divide and conquer. Angela and Rosie took on covering the raised bed frames with netting, and used their best sewing and patchwork skills to cover the frames to keep out the butterflies. Rachel, Gillian and Lisa weeded around the trees, raspberries, spinach and a couple of the beds. Meanwhile Sheila strimmed the grass Nicola and Matthew took on the compost area, moving the woody material to uncover some beautiful compost underneath. You could tell it was good stuff - it was full of wriggling pink worms. They used this to mulch around the newly- weeded areas. We were joined briefly by Daniel who passed by and came to join in - maybe he will join Goodgym in the future. Our last task was to dig a trial hole in an area that may be used for some fruit trees in the future, which Matthew and Nicola gamely took on. Once they had got past the bramble roots, they reported that the soil was quite easy to dig. We then discovered that this was Nicola's 100th Good Deed, which had crept under the radar. Congratulations, Nicola! Epic! We shall celebrate properly soon.

Grave expectations and community spirit

Windsor and Maidenhead Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

.14 Goodgymers turned up at the Community Centre last night for what promised to be a spooky evening of Goodgym spirit at St Luke’s church. After being warned to be nice to the ghosts and to not get eaten by any resident falcons, we set off on a walk which had been deemed to be far too short. This meant that, after arriving, we were promptly told to go away again. Not because we’d been really annoying (I think) but to do what we call a ‘meet and retreat’. This involves pairing up, moving around the perimeter of the church at your preferred speed, doing an exercise when you found your partner, and then moving back to where you started. Competitiveness is entirely optional.

After everyone had returned, we were armed with various sizes of cutty things, which is the technical term, and set loose on the graveyard to conduct a Goodgym haunting. Our instructions basically amounted to ‘fix it’, so we resorted to the destruction of unruly plants. There were very, very many to choose from. We battled bushes of brambles to uncover hidden gravestones (one which included a rather well-preserved anchor), had a fight with some allegedly non-sentient ivy, and created the world’s biggest piles of plant as proof of our victory.

There were protests when we had to finish and threats to stay in the graveyard all night (you know, like normal people) - our Goodgym spirit is just too strong! We were convinced to stop the haunting before the exorcists had to be called in and herded to the front of the church for some more exercise. A circuit of fun awaited us, involving running, jumping, and trying to figure out how to do the bench one without just looking like you were sitting down. Then, tired and happy with our inspired success, we all went home with our spirits high.
