Community mission

Beckton Park Tree Planting

Improve local air quality and biodiversity



Description

This is a community mission, a community led session where you will meet other GoodGym members at the task. Please make yourself known to anyone in a GoodGym top when you arrive. As with all GoodGym sessions we encourage you to use the power of your legs to get there, i.e. run or walk if you can.

On Saturday 30th November Trees for cities are holding a community tree planting day in Beckton District Park South. We will be planting lots of whips (small, young trees) around Beckton Park to create more wildlife habitat and form a barrier to the pollution from royal albert way and London City Airport.

The session runs from 10am to 3pm, with tea, biscuits and lunch included. However, i'm sure it's fine to dip in for however long you can commit.

Some of the guys from GoodGym Newham are doing a Parkrun takeover first in the same park

New to GoodGym?

This is a GoodGym group run, where we run to help a local community organisation and then run back.

New runners are welcome to GoodGym group runs - no one gets left behind. You're unlikely to be alone, hundreds of new people sign up every week.

There's a place to leave bags and a toilet at the start point, all you need to do is bring your trainers. It's free to try - get involved!
