Litter-ally flyering through the good deeds

Newcastle Report written by Anji Andrews (she/her)

It’s the first Monday evening session in absolutely ages where I’ve left my house in daylight.. whisper it… Spring is coming!

Six GoodGymers and only 100 leaflets - the reverse of last week’s session where we felt we had too many leaflets for people attending and we ran out of time! Confident we’d smash this task very quickly I added an extra ask to it- could we also fill two bags of litter, one before the start of flyering and one after? Spoiler alert- of course we could!

Our brilliant friends at Building Futures East which many GoodGymers will know is the home of East End Women Foodbank, had asked us to do some leaflet dropping in two areas: Heaton tonight and Byker next week. The organisation is struggling to spread the word of the amazing work they do via daily workshops at the BFE base in Newcastle. With so much on offer we want to help them to boost the numbers and we are always happy to help.

The majority of the group were running tonight, Seb leading the way and back-marked by brilliant Zoe who we were happy to see back for her second GoodGym session with us tonight. It’s all uphill to Heaton but we all arrived at exactly the same time - and yes, a bag of litter had been collected along the way.

We made very quick work of the flyer distribution, leaving time for another bag of litter to be collected and Adam to receive high praise from some passing locals. Always nice getting real- life kudos! Everyone then joined in with a cardio-blasting fitness session which combined a relay of sprints and a highly competitive pairs game of the game I call leg-tappies. This was a great, fun, high energy way to end a satisfying task and a brilliant way to start the week.

I’d love to get some more names on the register for our Tiny Forest planting session this Wednesday as we start a love story with EarthWatch this Valentine’s Day! Pop along if you can.

Newcastle Report written by Anji Andrews (she/her)

I almost called the session off tonight after listening to the battering the great outdoors was giving my house throughout the night and today. Storm Isha couldn’t fully stop us in our tracks and instead we changed the planned route to something that was not next to an actual river.

Five very wrapped up GoodGymers met ready for battle on day 22 of the GoodGym Newcastle litter pick relay which instead would be contained to Ouseburn. We celebrated a few doubles on a big weekend in which we logged 15 good deeds over six sessions- kudos! It takes a top effort to keep January feeling this positive. It was great to see Angela and Tom back tonight, their first sessions in a while and a very warm welcome back.

We headed up Stepney Bank, through the top of the Ouseburn, down to the Tyne Bar and back again and managed to fill three bags of rubbish along the way. Despite coming across lots of unsavoury stuff including a rat (!), lots of bottles and a single sock, we still managed to work up an appetite due to Tom’s food chatter ranging from Too good to Go bags to Michelin Star restaurants.

No community missions planned for this weekend yet (check back, there’s still time!) but Richard is hosting our first Coffee Run of the year. Join him for the run, the coffee or both. All the info for that is here.

We hope to see you along next week for a group run, walk and cycle to our old friends Recyke Y Bike.

I can't think of any wood puns. I’m stumped!

Newcastle Report written by Krishti

We were back at Hodgkin Park today to clear out the laurels. We've been doing this for three sessions and we've finally managed to clear off the whole area. When you look at the massive difference we made it was so satisfying.

Mike was feeling christmassy and he had his santa hat on and he also brought some christmas crackers for us. Our Christmas crackers had little riddles in them that we read out to each other. One of them needed a lot of discussion and explanation! I'm fresh out of puns today so I went with a bad dad joke for the title.

P.S. I've finally purchased a fitness band and I set it to workout mode at the start of the session. I've burnt 1455 kcal today! That's better than any gym session I've been to!!
