Squirrelling Away The Rubbish

Crewe Report written by Nicola Marshall

It was wonderful to spend the evening with the lovely Maurice tonight. We enjoyed a lovely walk around our beautiful park and around the George’s.

Tonight we combined our exercise with our task - which was a litter pick. We headed into the park first, and soon realised that someone had probably beaten us to it, as there didn’t appear to be an awful lot of litter - although we didn’t go away empty-handed! While we were in the park, we enjoyed admiring the, beautiful purple flowers (I have no idea what they’re called) and feeding the squirrels! They really enjoyed Maurice's nuts!

We made our way through the park and onto the George’s. We walked across the field as well as around the circumference. The litter there was a different story completely! We certainly weren’t short of items to pick up as the mower that had recently cut the grass, had shredded many items into dozens of pieces!!!

As always, we never ran out of things to talk about and it was really good to chat. Maurice was inspired to get back to running at the George’s again after watching many runners pass us.

We had some pleasant conversations with some of the other people who were out and about too, and it’s always nice to know that most people do respect their local surroundings and don’t drop rubbish.

Thanks for being awesome Maurice. You're an absolute legend.

Have a fab week.

Lots of love. Nicola x

Baby It’s Wet Outside!

Crewe Report written by Nicola Marshall

Well, what a wet, miserable evening tonight was. We’re not used to this on a Goodgym night, but it completely scuppered our plans! We were due to be supporting Motherwell with some gardening tonight. Motherwell were all prepared, with lots of new plants for us to put into pots and beds, but unfortunately the rain had other ideas!

And so, we took the task indoors!! Luckily for us, Kate had plenty of things that she could give us to do - that’s the beauty of working for an organisation that does so many different things! Tonight we were tasked with sorting baby clothes into different, age categories. Motherwell run many different projects, and their baby bank is one of them.

Maurice, Karen and Nicola got stuck into the bags and before long had them all sorted into the relevant piles ready for the next set of volunteers to help in sorting them into bundles.

As always, we had a good old natter while we sorted the clothes and put the world to rights, covering every topic from parkrun to politics!!

It was lovely to spend the evening with lovely friends, despite the not so lovely weather.

Well done everyone - amazing work as always, you're amazing!!

Have a great week.

Lots of love Nicola Xxx

It’s Got to ‘Bee’ Seen to be Believed!

Crewe Report written by Nicola Marshall

It was lovely to be reunited with the Wishing Well tonight after what felt like a very long time (that’s winter for you!!). It’s been such a long time since we did any work in their garden, and it was nice to be back and to be impactful at the same time.

It was equally wonderful to have Karen and Maurice back from their recent Parkrun tourism and I enjoyed hearing about some of the things they got up to on their fantastic trip.

It’s fair to say that we had our work cut out this evening… Maurice set to work with the mower after Gill had kindly got us off to a good start before we even arrived. It really was a case of one man went to mow a meadow! ;)) While Maurice mowed, Karen set to work on clearing the raised beds of all the weeds, and Nicola weeded the path. We probably didn’t achieve as much as we would’ve liked, but we definitely made a big difference. And by not finishing it all, at least it gives us an opportunity to go back for another visit!

Once we’d packed away our tools, we walked down to the Town Square to have a look at the Manchester Bee Monument....A monument which has been produced from guns and knives in an attempt to reduce violence with weapons. It really was a sight to see and really impressive.

Well done Karen and Maurice on completing another fantastic task. You’re both amazing.

Wishing Well.... We'll be back!!

Have a great week. Lots of love Nicola xxx
