We are back at Surrey Docks Farm
We need 6 volunteers for this Sunday session 2-4pm.
- Please remember to bring your own gloves and wear facemasks at this task
- If sharing tools please wipe down between uses
- Adhere to social distsncing measures at all times
They haven't had much volunteer help over the last few months, so there is plenty to do.
Hope you can join us and say hello to the pigs, goats and cows again!
Please note that this community mission has been cancelled.
The Met Police are doing an amazing thing - giving 166 unrecoverable bikes to victims of bike crime from our frontline NHS.
Pro BIke Service CIC, friend of GoodGym Newham, are donating their time and expertise repairing the bikes, some in a terrible state, then gifting them over.
Here East, regular post task refreshment zone of GoodGym, are donating their time and space to store the delivered bikes and host the event.
Everyone is chipping in to help this worth cause.
Helping move the bikes from Here East (not canal-side, round the back) to the lock up. Roughly a 250m stretch, some bikes will need to be carried, most will be wheeled.
This task may continue, dependent on if The Met get and gift more bikes.
Call Kirsty from Here East if you have any problems finding it: 07548225317
We've partnered up with Get Out, a charity that focuses on youngsters developing a relationship with nature. Plastic free campaigning, surfing experiences and permaculture education. This is a brilliant, worthy cause.
They manage a garden at Malmesbury Primary School in Tower Hamlets. Harvesting, planting, growing, building, weeding...there'll be a range of jobs on offer and perhaps some tips to develop your own cultivation skills.
"The founding goal of GET OUT is to use environmental education to strengthen the connection between Tower Hamlets' young people and the natural world. "
The knowledgeable Kieran will be there to offer instructions and permaculture/gardening tips.
This will be a GG only event, we'll keep a safe covid secure distance outdoors. The task is three hours, as there's a bit to do!
Kieran may have some goodies to take home so worth bringing a bag.
Amber is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
Amber completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Amber was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
