Fly(er) Me to the Moon and Let Me Play Among the Stars

Tue 7 Dec

Join the fly(er) gents and ladies from WATMOS to leaflet their tenants with all the great and good upcoming end of year events.

It will be a short run from our base at Papa's Park, grab the fobs and leaflets and then get started in a race like no other - imagine the RAID movies with less shooting and more leaflet through letterbox action ⏱

Time to lace up, grab a stack of (recyclable) leaflets and feel the burn of a stair workout on a Tuesday evening πŸ‹

Compost Mentis

Mon 6 Dec
β€’
Report written by Anastasia Hancock

Despite the best laid plans, sometimes it doesn't quite go as expected. Take tonight's last minute change of task as a good example! Unfortunately our run down to the school was canceled last minute, but with a little sprinkle of Christmas we managed to swap it around with next week's mission and the night was saved!

Before we headed down to the Venue, a local community space and food sharing hub, we did a warm up and had our question of the week. Tonight was a two parter - what's the best thing about the lead up to Christmas, and mince pies: yes or no? Our fav things included Christmas movies and cheesy music, and it was a substantial win for the mince pies.

We had a brisk run down to the Venue, where we met Hadas who set us to work with two tasks - one outside and one inside. While the inside team got stuck into clearing the kitchen and packing away food donations, the outside group braved the cold and shifted and spread compost all over the flowerbeds.

Job done it was time for home, and we split the run up with several fitness stations along the way, featuring planks, squats and some toe taps. One hill sprint and a few stretches later and we called it a night. Next week the task is still to be confirmed, but we will be having our Christmas social at the pub after the last run of the year. Hope to see you there for some festive fun!

Group Run: Flyering for Sisterhood Arts Christmas Fair

Wed 8 Dec 18:30 pm
Old Spike Roastery, 54 Peckham Rye, London, SE15 4JR
Drive awareness to the local area that this community event is happening!

The Sisterhood of Arts is a charity organisation, which champions women in the arts through support and skills workshops. They will be holding a Christmas Market in Peckham Levels on Saturday 11th December and need our help to spread the word that this event is happening. We will be getting around 500-1,000 flyers, so the more runners who sign up, the more chance we have of succeeding this task!

There is a walking option for those who would like to walk. You will be flyering closer to Old Spike Roastery, so more the Peckham area whereas the runners will flyer around East Dulwich.

The "Where, When and What":

πŸ“ Meet at Old Spike Roastery for the Group Run.

⌚ 18:30 (leaving at 18:45 latest). We will be back in Peckham by 20:15 (latest).

βœ… There will be access to Old Spike Roastery, so you can drop your bags and use their toilets before we head out.

πŸƒπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ We will be running around 3-5k around Peckham/East Dulwich. There will be a back marker to ensure no one gets left behind.

Advisable: Bring a head torchπŸ”¦ as we will be running at night.

Friday Night Flyering πŸ₯ŠπŸ—žοΈ

Report written by Sam Lefevre

Not quite Friday Night Fight, but the next best thing πŸ‘€

Adam and I met up Yianny at the top of Burbage Road and Half Moon Lane as I had to pass over the keys I had for Papa's Park. Yet, still injured Yianny didn't join us, but having Adam along was a big help.

We covered one side of the road each as we walked / jogged to ensure we delivered these GROAD flyers to the residents of Dulwich - covering Burbage Road, Pickwick Road, Aysgarth Road and finally, Boxall Road. This task took an hour exactly. I want to thank Adam for coming out and assisting me.

Christmas STOCKings & FestiviTEAS

Fri 3 Dec
β€’
Report written by Adam Quigley

Three runners assisted the Borough Food Cooperative sorting and stocking their latest intake of donated deliveries, this week to glorious and underappreciated music that is of course... Disco.

Friday saw a bumper donation of Tea and Coffee in particular and possibly the biggest variety of tinned products seen to date... The things that can be put in tins.

The immediate tasks complete and with a Christmas tree already in place it was time to assist with the festive decorations... Christmas it's fair to say, has officially arrived.
