Brand new task for GoodGym Haringey and what a lovely task it was. Part art installation, part Haringey babies' no.1 ally, the Pram Depot was amazing.
GG Haringey was at its best behaviour as we had Olivia and Gaynor joining us for their first ever run, as well as Emily (of GG Slough fame) running with us for her first GG Haringey visit ever. They were absolute rock stars and we can't wait to see them again - send some love their way, please!
Getting buggy wit it*
A nice short run down the road at a very easy pace this was NOT! Last night was one of the longest runs we've done in a while but our intrepid GoodGymmers threw themselves at it with aplomb and the kilometres just rolled by. Once at the Pram Depot, we were welcomed with plenty of cups of tea and biscuits (Yes!) and a multitude of just-donated prams that needed cleaning. Our GoodGymmers steam cleaned, hoovered, washed, and scrubbed until those prams were left looking as good as new. Alas, we couldn't tackle a mountain of baby clothes that needed sorting but the Pram Depot had run out of boxes, although that just gives an excuse to come back. Yep, that's why we want to come back, not the Jaffa Cakes ;) Back at base camp, both Sarah and myself led two small but much-needed stretching sessions. You could say we were pushed to the limit* but it was an enjoyable evening overall.
Don't forget the GoodGym Olympics are taking place this Saturday at the Parliament Hill Athletics Track from 12:30 onwards. Even if you haven't signedup for any events, there are manyother ways to join in the fun, not least by cheering your fellow GoodGymmers on. Details here.
Next few weeks
I'm signing off for a couple of weeks but that doesn't mean that GoodGym Haringey gets a break.
Our action-packed Taskforce is trying to arrange a community mission with the Friends of PrioryPark early next week as they need help sorting out their sandpit. That's right, you might be able to play in a sandpit. Watch this space.
Also next week we're visiting Lorenco House in Tottenham and our wonderful Sarah will be leading the run. Join her! The week after our also wonderful Dave will be leading the Westbury Bank Nature Reserve run - you can sign up here too. I'll then be back for a visit to the Lordship Rec. JOIN! JOIN! JOIN!
Until I see you all again, don't do anything I wouldn't do!
