What Great Support!!

Crewe Report written by Nicola Marshall

As always, we felt very blessed this evening to have a nice sunny dry evening to enjoy our walk together! Considering the days of dreadful weather we had in the run-up today, we considered ourselves very lucky not to experience either rain, wind, hail or sleet!!

Maurice and Nicola set out from Motherwelland did a brisk circular walk, taking in a lap of Queens Park. It was so nice to walk around the park in the daylight and see people out enjoying the park and its surroundings. We stopped for a couple of photos on the bridge, enjoying the warm sun and admiring the swans!! We never run out of things to talk about and tonight was no exception.

Back at the task, we had the job of sorting out dozens of bras, lol! I take my hat off to Maurice, he never complains about a task, he always just gets stuck in no matter what. Thank you Maurice for being such a great sport! We managed to get through a good chunk of them, but unfortunately not all with their only being two of us.

We had a good laugh as we worked and it was certainly a good eye test! I think both of us realised that glasses were really in order for this job!

As always, it’s a delight to support this wonderful charity and all the amazing work they do for our community.

Thanks for being a community legend Maurice!!

Have a great week.

Lots of love Nicola xxxx

Policed To See You!

Crewe Report written by Nicola Marshall

What a lovely evening spent with lovely people - the norm when out with my lovely Goodgym friends.

Once again, we were blessed with good weather... especially after so much rain in the days preceding tonight‘s task.

Tonight was an extra special night, as the lovely Kat was celebrating her birthday! What a true Goodgym die hard to come and spend her birthday night leafleting with us lot!!! You are a legend Mrs Arnold!!

Kat, Hazel, Maurice, Phil & Nicola started the evening with a brisk circular walk from the Sherborne bungalows down past the cemetery and back up and through the estate to our task starting point. We put the world to rights as always - tonight’s main topic of conversation being potholes and brown bin charges!

The lovely Hazel greeted us and told us all about our task for the evening. Tonight we were delivering leaflets to the estate to promote a Police drop in for residents of the estate. We managed to get all the leaflets done that we needed to and we really hope that the clinics have lots of uptake. And thank goodness we had Hazel to guide us around the estate! I think we’d still be there now if it wasn’t for you Hazel!!!

To celebrate Kats birthday, we headed off to the chippy once we’d finished our task, for some birthday chips! It was lovely to stand outside eating our chips still in the daylight! I do love spring!!!

Well done, everyone on another amazing task achieved. And Kat, we hope you enjoy the rest of your birthday!

And finally, a shout out to some of our regulars who couldn’t make it this evening. You were very much missed.

Have a great week, everyone.

Lots of love Nicola xxxxx

Parkrun Volunteering

Crewe Report written by Nicola Marshall

It was a blustery Saturday morning, but that didn’t stop five Goodgym diehards from rocking up to do a stint of Parkrun volunteering at their local Crewe Parkrun.

We all undertook various rolls . Karen was volunteer coordinator and timekeeper , Emily was token sorting,Kat, was barcode scanning, Maurice was parkwalking and token, sorting, and Nicolawas funnel manager.

As always, it was a lovely morning spent at Crewe parkrun. In fact, we had such a good time that we forgot to take a photograph.... so I’ve added an old one!!!

We missed you, Nigel!!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone. Lots of love xxx

Delivering Duo!

Crewe Report written by Nicola Marshall

Tonight was one of those rare evenings, where there were only two of us. Small in number we were, but small in effort we weren’t!! Karen and Nicola walked over 3 miles while delivering leaflets for Junior parkrun this evening. We didn’t get them finished last week, so we happily carried on with them for tonight‘s task

It was a great night to be out because now that the clocks have gone forward, it was lighter for longer and we even finished in the daylight for the first time this year!!

We got a good chunk of the leaflets delivered, all while having lots of lovely chats, fresh air and exercise. What’s not to love?

Last week, there were seven first timers at Junior parkrun - we’d like to credit Goodgym for that as a result of our leafleting last week! Lol! Joking aside, I hope that the leafleting has had some impact and that there will be lots more first time next Sunday too!!

Nigel we hope your shoulder is feeling a bit better and Maurice, we hope you’re having a lovely time on your walk.

A good job done and a good evening had. Thank you for your lovely company Karen

Lots of love . Nicola xxxx

Turned Over a New Leaf…let

Crewe Report written by Nicola Marshall

Well, tonight we were set to do a leafleting task. We were looking forward to it as it was an opportunity to promote our wonderful junior parkrun, which is something that lots of our members are involved with and extremely passionate about. We like leafleting tasks because they feel productive as well as being a great way to get exercise.

However, the weather wasn’t playing ball with us today. At about 4pm, the heavens opened and the dark skies, downpour of rain and the wind was like something out of a Hollywood film! (Okay, so maybe I’m exaggerating a little!!). Nonetheless, I checked the forecast and was hopeful that by around 6 o’clock, the rain would have dried up and we would be okay. 6.15 came and so did the rain. We all had to take shelter (in Karen‘s car) until the rain had passed – which luckily it did!

So, when it had passed, we got out of the car and prayed for the rest of the night to be dry, which luckily it was. Karen, Nigel, Maurice and Nicola covered a whopping 5K tonight, popping leaflets through letterboxes of houses within a close vicinity of the park. As always, there’s good conversation and laughter as we go about our tasks. We had to dodge a few dogs, a few puddles and a few dodgy paving slabs, but we were pleased with the result – we got a lot of leaflets delivered! Hopefully, junior parkrun will see the benefits of that on Sunday and have lots of first timers.

Well done everyone, a fantastic night doing something good and getting some fresh air and exercise. It’s definitely a win-win.

Love being with you all. Have a great week and see you all soon.

Lots of love Nicola XxX

A Bundle of Fun!!

Crewe Report written by Nicola Marshall

Tonight saw the return of the three amigos! Karen, Maurice and Nicola were back together as a trio supporting the wonderful Motherwell with sorting baby clothes into bundles to be handed out to families.

we started the evening with our usual exercise session. We took a slightly different route this time then we have before, although Maurice was quite insistent that we went as close to the park as we possibly could. I think he must be having withdrawal symptoms!

We did a 1.5 mile walk, which roughly equates to 3 km (or Perhaps a bit less!). We had a good catch up on our way round and arrived back at the task about 30 minutes later.

Back at the hub, we set to work with the task of putting the baby clothes into bundles. Each bundle needed to contain three vests, three baby grows, three outfits, and one warm item. The other requirement was that they were to be colour coordinated… this was quite easy at the beginning because there was plenty to choose from, but it got harder as the task went along and the clothes started to diminish. We did the best we could though and managed to put together as many bundles as we could from what we had.

It was a fun evening in a lovely warm environment... which was very welcome, as despite the spring like feel to the weather yesterday, tonight was cold!!

Well done Karen & Maurice. Another productive evening and another task well done!!

Have a great week.

Loads of love, Nicola xxx
