What a great turn out for this week's quiz!! Janet, Eleanor, Ross and Caprice met for the group Run and met GoodGymers Katie and Hannah at the Care home. Newbies Poppy and Millie arrived after their 40 minute stomp to the session. Well done to them! And we were then joined by Emma and some more new faces Shirley, Kansool and Shaila. We had actually met the week previous but the session unfortunately had to be cancelled last minute so it was lovely to see everyone again. After a quick introductions and after meeting the residents the teams were split into three team, "Loose Women" the "Eight Wise Men" and of course "The Winners Table" This week's quiz consisted of four rounds, Round 1 Halloween Trivia, Round 2 True or False (very random addition!) Round 3 General knowledge and Round 4 The Music Round with this week being "name that horror movie soundtrack" All teams did a great job and it was right down to the wire. With "The eight wise men" getting a grand score of 24/40, closely followed by "The winners table" with 26. This week though it was "The Loose Women" who snatched the title this week with 26.5, yes just half a point in it!! Well done to everyone and thanks to the residents who are always so welcoming, we love our monthly quiz. See you again hopefully next Monday to help at the charity Hope Housing or if not see you in a month for another Care Home Quiz! 😁

What a beautiful evening to celebrate GoodGym Bournemouth's 7th birthday. Our first ever good deed was a beach clean so to celebrate, the GoodGymers performed a litter-pick at gloriously sunny Durley Chine beach. Daryl, Neil, Janet and Caprice met newbies Lucy and Louis for a short Group Run to the Beach. Welcome Lucy and Louis! They certainly looked the part by wearing red T-Shirts (hopefully it won't take long for their shirts to arrive) Once at the beach they met Hannah, Sue, Paul, Katie and Katie's mum Jill. It was Jill's first time at GoodGym, she is smashing her C25K so hopefully next time we will see her at our Group Runs! The beach was still quite busy so the group started their litter pick by whizzing around the car-park and up onto the cliff-top. It was slim pickings to start with but the bags just kept getting heavier. We were soon joined by Lea and Keith who had spent the day volunteering on Brownsea Island. They were both knackered but still managed to join us with their grabbers and bin bags. We love you guys! After a successful session the group then hit the beach for celebratory drinks and snacks. What a great bunch, it was so nice to see so many faces! Here's to another seven years and more!! Cheers! 🥂🎉

Quiz time again and what a cracking turnout from both GoodGymers and residents. Four teams were made with Daryl joining 'The Castaways.' Katie and Ross joining 'GoodGym Guys.' Sue joining 'Vicky's Wine Club' and Hannah and Neil joining 'Abbeyfield A-Team.'
Quiz master Caprice put them through their paces with four tough rounds.. Round 1 - General Knowledge, Round two - True or False (with fun facts about broccoli) , Round 3 - Cheese or Service Station? (some tricky ones but they all sounded like cheese to me!) And finally a little twist on the music Round with Round 4 - Name The Year Of The Song.
All teams did well but 'Vicky's Wine Club' smashed it again with 30/50! They obviously know their cheeses from their service stations!!
Next week GoodGym Bournemouth will be celebrating their 7 year anniversary. To celebrate the team will be meeting for a Group Run to Durley Chine to perform a litter pick followed by beach party fun and games!! We hope to see you there!

Today's mission was to help paint a playground wall ready for a new mural. The rain clouds couldn't deter these GoodGymers from their Misson to help Neil at Bishop's Aldhelm's School. Daryl got to work cutting back the hedge, Hannah sweeping up the mess and Caprice helped Neil brush the wall ready for the first coat of paint. Once the wall was prepped, everyone got to work painting and it didn't take long until the wall was covered. A very grateful Neil thanked the gang and they then headed home. I'm sure that GoodGym will be back to help him with some other projects so watch this space.

Five GoodGymers joined the residents at Abbeyfield Wessex Society Care home for GoodGym's monthly quiz. The quiz was very musical this month as a special request from one of the residents. Daryl and Ross joining the 'mens' team The Untouchables. Sue joining the team Loose Women and Hannah joining another team which also named themselves The Loose Women! Caprice being the quiz master put them through their paces. After three tricky music rounds the teams fought it out with Loose Women (Sue's team!) getting an amazing 31 1/2 out of 43.
We look forward to another quiz next month, please see the dates on our website. The run is also less than one mile each way for those who would like to join us for a shorter run. It's a great starter session for those new to running.
See you there next month!
