January seemed to drag on ….and on .. and the 31st couldn’t come quick enough for some of us. However there was a LOT to celebrate with so many good deeds done, including an epic daily dose of litter picking by us GoodGymers. Well done everyone!

Following a GG task with Urban Green, Charlotte and I went to slightly different parts of the Park (but concentrating on the playground area) and continued with our January litter picking relay. Unfortunately or fortunately , depending on how you look at it, it didn’t take long to fill 2 bin bags….

The start of Storm Isha didn't stop 4 GoodGymers getting stuck into helping Urban Green clear a very overgrown space at Elswick Park. "See this view across Newcastle & Gateshead?" said Mike (Urban Green). "Well I want us to clear here so we get the same view" (pointing to a forest of overgrown trees & shrubs). 20 minutes in and Aimee, Charlotte, Adam (who I spent the entire morning calling "Damu" - sorry, Adam!) and Liz had already got to see a view...90 minutes later and the full one was there in all its glory. Big shout out to Adam, who only moved to Newcastle 6 weeks ago and has already clocked up 5 GG missions with us. Kudos! As Mike explained, it would take the trees another 15 years to get back to the size they had been. I call that a great job, well done!!
Charlotte and Liz then topped it off with a park litter pick - see the separate reports for that. Our "interesting" items included a golf club and a pair of shoes - but Mike got top trumps earlier in the morning for finding a large and dangerous looking kitchen knife. Thank heavens that's at least one off the streets!
