A Tall Task

Bournemouth Report written by Bournemouth runner

Ten Goodgymmers, Sophie, Emma, Millie, James, Caprice, Daryl, Oscar, Martin, Keith and Lea turned up tonight at St Augustin’s church. Ruth there had a “tall” task for us: cleaning the walls at the front of the church and hoovering curtains. Armed with buckets, cloths, towels and hoovers we put in plenty of elbow grease. A tall task?!?! Well… up to a certain height only though! Built in 1891 and a grade II listed building: the walls are higher than high and no ladders allowed. In spite of that: Lea and Keith were on bucket duty, James and James (see photo) had a blast together hoovering! Martin from Goodgym Luton blended in perfectly with the Bournemouth lot. Newcomer Oscar tucked in right away and Sophie, Emma and Millie will hopefully not have sore arms tomorrow, happily scrubbing away there. And, of course, our happy leaders Caprice and Daryl were there getting their ‘goodness-knows-how-maniest’ tasks complete! And well done Martin for spotting the mouse in the pews… At the end of our mission the (lower part of the) walls shone brightly! Thanks everyone for all your hard work.

Cleaning the inside of St Augustin’s Church

Making the church cleaner means nicer atmosphere for people to worship in.

A devil of a litterpick?!

Bournemouth Report written by Bournemouth runner

Two Goodgymmers joined forces with three Bournemouth Ploggers to look for litter around Alum Chine. Beachcombing had us pick up loads and loads of tiny nurdles, all washed up by recent high winds. On West Overcliff Drive a double mattress was found (and now duly reported to the council). Not too many interesting finds, just a little spade, which will find its way in my grandbaby’s beach toy box and a colourful bag to put your swim stuff in, now soaking in suds before it will go in the washing machine. And the “devil” then… well, walking around with a second litterpicker in my backpack, somebody commented on the devilish shadow! Some photos added to show WHY we do it… Anyway, another Goodgym mission ✅.

Leaves no trace 🌿

Bournemouth Report written by Caprice McWilliams

A big congratulations to Sarah as today's session marked her 100th good deed with GoodGym!! She loves getting her hands dirty and this was the perfect task to celebrate that achievement. She even got a cheeky Vegan Doughnut for her efforts! Go Sarah. We can't wait to see you in your new 100 Tshirt! This Saturday's mission was to help Martha at The Talbot Village Trust. The woodland on the estate had become very overgrown and we were were given the task of of clearing away the overgrowth. Using the loppers and the saws provided the group got to work cutting back the brambles and the overgrown Laurel. It was an incredibly satisfying task clearing space for the beautiful oak trees,allowing them room to flourish. After a good hour of hard work, Martha treated the team to a hot cuppa and sweet treats, she is so good to her volunteers!! After refreshments we got straight back to it, what a great team effort, in just three hours we smashed it! Thanks to Lea and Eleanor for some action shots and a big shout out to everyone else who sacrificed their lazy Saturday morning. You really are the best of the best!! Hopefully it won't be last time that we help The Talbot Village Trust. It's been a pleasure to meet Martha and we wish her all the best with her work at The Trust. Next session is this Monday at Hope Housing, so hopefully see you there!

Rooting it out AND plastering it on…

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!!!
