12 of Islington's finest ran 4km, helped FROGG and had our Christmas Party - woop!

Thank you all for coming last night to the run and meal, and of course thank you for making GG Islington brilliant in 2017. We will be back bigger, stronger and gooder (yes that's a word) in 2018 - first run will be Thursday 4th January.

In the news this week:

  1. Well done to those who smashed Regents Park 10km in the snow on Sunday - hardcore!
  2. Make sure you share our starter session on Saturday 13th January to your friends, family & colleague - we'll be doing Highbury Fields Parkrun first!
  3. Oh and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

After our intros, a warm up that avoided black ice we headed 2km north to help FROGG! Armed with a Christmas tie, Aidan's Christmas lights jumper, Lucy's Santa hat and Graham's shorts we were ready to conquer the cold and do some good.

Ho ho ho!

Upon our arrival Aidan and Graham led some conditioning exercises to keep everyone warm while a few of us met Sarah to collect the tools, wheelbarrow and keys. Tonight we were helping Friends of Grenville Gardens, aka FROGG, who are a wonderful bunch of volunteers that look after the gardens. Our tasks this week were:

  1. Filling the wheelbarrow and containers with mulch and transfering it across the icy grass to be put in a planter. Once the mulch bag was light enough the team lifted it over and emptied it.
  2. A team of three filled containers with leaves and weeds to make some BUG HOTELS - cool! This had recently been vandalised so it's great to repair it.
  3. The rest of the team spread across the garden and scrapped ice off the pavements, a key task for a freezing night.

We completed our tasks in no time at all, well done all! Heading home downhill we were back early so we stretched inside, took a fantastic group picture and headed to a local Turkish restaurant for our Christmas Party!

Islington Stats of 2017:

  • 1400 good deeds

Merry Christmas
