Tuesday night group run: WET'S roll!

Stockport Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

One of our wonderful regular tasks is to deliver the brilliant Heaton's (Cheadle, Didsbury and now even Chorlton!) post to the local community, with smiles on our faces and weighted rucksacks on our back!

Our target area of Peel Moat is nestled in the heart of Heaton Moor and gave us a good 1.5 mile run from our Life Leisure Houldsworth Village bass to the delivery start point.

Just as our run was due to begin, along came the torrential storm - rain, rain and more rain!

Did we let it stop us? Absolutely not! not!

We dodged puddles, lept over lakes and embraced the wet dog look with great enthusiasm!

On our run, we welcomed back Rob, Pete and Lauren from their Summer travels and our new recruits (now regulars) YingXin and Emma joined us once again.

I think we absolutely STORMED the task!

We BE-LEAFLET in a thing called love

Stockport Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

Groundwork is a federation of charities mobilising practical community action on poverty and the environment across the UK. They are passionate about creating a future where every neighbourhood is vibrant and green, every community is strong and able to shape its own destiny and no-one is held back by their background or circumstances.

Big Local is an initiative from the Local Trust that gave 150 communities a million pounds to use to create lasting change in their area. Entirely resident-led, Big Locals are encouraged to invite representatives from partner agencies to provide help, advice and services to make the best use of the available funding in their community.

The Brinninton Big Local hub is holding a community event in the area and needed a helping hand to spread the word. Our task was to aid them in delivering the leaflets across the area.

So, on foot, 6 GoodGymers, loaded with rucksacks and boundless energy, lept to the challenge. We weaved and meandered the streets of Brinnington to post the leaflets to the community.

First to the post

Stockport Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

Our group run last night was to help the wonderful Cheadle Post community newspaper get to the doors of the fabulous folk of Cheadle Hulme.

With rusksacks filled to the brim with the papers, we began our weighted hill sprints to our targeted.posting area. The night was light but the bags were heavy - just the way we like our runs!

Whilst nattering away about adventures awaiting, Russian exams, parkrun tourism and the standard tea discussions, we distributed our batch of The Cheadle Post and finished with a leisurely downhill jog with lighter bags and a great sense of achievement.

GoodGym love a PLAY on words!

Stockport Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

We had a Spring in our step at last night's weekly group run. We met at Life Leisure Cheadle with the sun shining and a reminder that the lighter nights are finally coming!

Our task for the evening was to help Heald Green Community Theatre to deliver a bulk of their flyers, to promote their up and coming community performance.

Heald Green Theatre is an amateur not for profit theatre so not for profit and registered charity. They run heavily subsidised Drama classes for children aged 7 to 18 so that they’re affordable for all. They keep going simply by putting on plays and then ploughing the ticket revenue back into paying the energy bills, insurances etc so its a hard slog every year for them!

They currently have a play 'Bothered and bewildered' and required help to make a dent in the delivery of 3000 leaflets around the Gatley area.

So off we set, 5 GoodGymers with a spring in our step and flyers in hand. We covered an impressive 7.5km distributing the leaflets to the local area, had a good old catch up and embraced the lighter nights!

Paint Long and Prosper

Coventry Report written by Celtic Murray

Yesterday's group run involved a lengthy run to the Social Supermarket.

We got our hands messy (literally!) and enjoyed painting some wooden chairs for the benefit of volunteers for the Social Supermarket.

We welcomed a GoodGym Tourist- Pete from Stockport! It was lovely to have him with us.
