10 goodgymers made their way to Abbeyfield Care home for our monthly quiz. It was Janet’s first time as quiz master and there were rounds on Remembrance Day, 50 (as Janet recently completed her 50th mission) and general knowledge. The multiple choice round on the theme of 50 proved tricky but lots of points were scored in the final multiple choice round. The Coasters Team won with 24/30, closely followed by Loose Women with 23/30 and Dream Team with 21/30.

Bournemouth Report written by Bournemouth runner
Six Goodgymmers, Keith, Sophie, Eleanor, Sue, Janet and Lea, turned up on this brilliantly sunny morning to help Ruth at St Augustin’s Church. Roots, roots and more roots: digging, forking, lopping, pulling and… sawing to get the monsters out. Small and big victories when the d… things finally gave way! All the womenfolk outside while Keith was doing the technical precision job of filling and plastering a fist size hole in the wall as well as zillions of other holes. All in all: another great Goodgym effort and fun had by all. Although some of us might be feeling their backs tomorrow!!!

Eleanor, Daryl and Caprice met for the short Group Run to Hope Housing. The runners were met by Mark and Julie and and a van load of donations. It wasn't long before they were joined by Janet who made her own way to the session. Big congratulations were in order as tonight Janet completed her 50th good deed ❤️ Well done and hopefully she'll be rocking her black T-shirt at next week's session! Tonight's task was to sort through donations bagging up winter and summer clothing, once the bags were full they were labeled stating if the contents were men, women or children. Another successful session helping our friends at Hope Housing. One week to go until the Care Home Quiz and this month Janet will be the Quiz Master. How exciting! We hope to see you there!

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! 😁

Daryl and Janet turned up on a gloriously sunny afternoon to paint Mrs K’s garden shed. After a quick trial with some brown paint, it was decided to stick with green as the shed was already predominantly green. A little over an hour later, the shed was looking drop shed gorgeous and Mrs K was delighted!
