Fay being a ledg-end

Chelmsford Report written by Laurie Glendinning

7 GoodGymers ran and walked to the Ideas Hub to paint

After our previous task fell through, our wonderful Area Activator Fay jumped into action and found us a replacement, and even better, it was an indoor replacement!

Two set off walking and the rest of us jogged in the drizzle to the Ideas Hub where we met our task owner Edith and put on our hi-viz.

Our task was to paint a large section of grey walls with white, to prepare them for a new photography space run by the Ideas Hub.

We moved the items away from the walls and put dust sheets down ready to paint. Rich and Joe paired up with long rollers, whilst Joel and David picked up shorter rollers, Richard got up a ladder to meticulously cut in the top of the painting area, and Fay found her ledg-end place.

We painted more than any of us expected, and will be returning next week to continue!

See you all next time!

This task didn’t drag-on

Chelmsford Report written by David Chatterjee

What terrible weather it was today - but Fay leapt to the rescue! We were going to be outside but she managed to get us an indoor task at the last minute - superstar!

We met in the cold and rain, the snow long since gone, and had a chat while I got a standing ovation for the quiz victory on Sunday.

We pootled the way to the top of the Meadows, chatting as we do. Good luck to Richard with the course he is doing, and I can only assume Andy banged on about a certain football result from this weekend.

We met Edith and needed to move all the chairs, the dragons, ironing board, and poles (amongst other things) to clear space for artists in the coming weeks. We will be painting the area soon. We were thanked for our speed, a great example of many hands making light work.

Edith invited us to submit a float into the parade in July - she can provide the wheels, we need to get creative and start making! send all ideas to Jenny who volunteered to do some CAD drawings. Should be fun!

Great to see everyone and a fantastic turnout considering the weather! Hopefully see you all - and more - next week! Do also check out the socials we have coming up, another pub quiz next month and a roast dinner on 30th April which Joe wanted to sample now

Quizzy Quizzy Let's Get Busy!

Chelmsford Report written by Fay Downing (she/her)

10 GoodGymers put their brains to work for the evening at the Ale House Pub quiz. We welcomed new member Doiminic who joined us for the first time for the evening after chatting to us at Parkrun a few weeks ago. We also congratulated Rich on his half marathon that morning and said "hi" to Charlie who popped in to see us on her way to a friends.

Things started to get competitive as we split into two teams, Andy's Cucumber Shortage and The Also Rans. The rounds started well but seemed to get progressively harder as time went on. Fortunately that wasn't a problem though. After Joel requested a stewards enquiry with the judges it turned out that the Cucumber team came first (not last as originally announced!) and The Also Rans came joint fourth. A very good effort all round.

As we had so much fun we'll be putting the quiz in the social diary again for next month. We also have a social at the end of April, going for a Sunday roast at the Riverside Inn. This week's task is leafletting for Foodcycle, you can sign up here
