Light on litter

Tue 5 Apr
Report written by Liv Parker-Scott

Tonight a small group met for the first time this year where the task has taken place entirely in the light!

Okay so it’s not summer just yet but we could just feel the long warm evenings sitting in the park after GoodGym just around the corner!

After running a couple of laps of the local parks we got down to business!

As well as being light in the sky, it was light on the ground in terms of litter too. And we love to see it! We split into two groups to cover the perimeter of Walpole park between us and only came up with two half full bags of litter between us and only one particularly strange find of a plastic hand... Hopefully when the evenings get warmer we won’t see an increase of litter alongside it!

Mulching/Litter picking in Walpole Park!

Tue 5 Apr 19:00 pm
The Rickyard, Walpole Park, Ealing, W5 5BS
Help the trees live longer and stay stronger & clean up our parks!

Tonight we'll be shifting around lots of mulch! The trees in Walpole park need a good coating around the base and there's loads to get done. We also have a plan B litter pick in case we can't complete plan A this week but either way we'll be doing good stuff in our local parks!

Meeting point is at The Rickyard

As well as improving the park you'll also get a good workout in at the same time!

Just beforehand, at 6:30pm, we'll also squeeze in a run around the park before we get mulching/picking - this part is optional but if you fancy it just come along to the same place at The Rickyard half an hour earlier

Good things come in trees!

Tue 4 Jan
Report written by Liv Parker-Scott

Last night we kicked off January 2022 in tree-mendous style! - 10 GoodGymers came out to help ensure trees were taken to the designated recycling points to be turned into lovely woodchip in our local parks!

Fir god's sake, where are all the trees?!

We arrived at the park to find a large stash of trees at the recycling point and we intended to scout around the surrounding streets to add to it! However we may have been a little early this year as normally we find a huge number of abandoned trees and this year we had to work a little harder to reel them in!

We split into 3 groups with some more successful than others, however by the end we dragged about 12 over in total included some pretty beefy ones! Cam definitely found the largest of the night which required three people to carry it! But the most collected by one group was the dream team of Annabel, Claire and Shan who arrived back with 6 between them!

We finished up with a sally squats leg blast before all jogging off towards home.

What a lovely way to start the year!


Next Tuesday we'll be back out on the streets doing something else fun and active and we've got loads more stuff coming up this January too - click here to see all the sessions in Ealing.

Start off the New Year with GoodGym Ealing - Christmas tree hunting!

Tue 4 Jan 18:45 pm
Bodyline Studio, 5-6 Spring Bridge Mews, Ealing, W5 2AB
Join us to do good and get fit for the first time in 2022!

Welcome to GoodGym Ealing!

We're a friendly group who combines exercise with volunteering. We meet every week to combine getting fit with by walking, running and cycling with a physical task to help the charities and community organisations in our borough.

The Task:

Join us to do good and get fit for the first time in 2022!

This week we'll be doing the classic Christmas tree sweep!

Basically we'll mooch around scooping up discarded trees, dropping them at designated collection points for recycling. It's a great work out and great fun!

PLEASE BRING GLOVES WITH YOU!

The Run:

Tonight we'll meet at 6.45pm for a run starting from outside Bodyline Fitness Gym on Spring Bridge Mews. Please come ready to run, there's no bag drop or toilets.

GoodGym is for everyone and we welcome runners of all abilities. We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is! If you have any questions or you're worried about the task or run then just contact me. The total distance there and back will be around 5km.

What if you don't want to run?!

If running isn't your bag then that's cool too - you can meet us at Cleveland Park where we'll be doing the task (use this pinpoint) at 7:20pm instead. You could walk or cycle there to get your exercise in your way! Post below to let me know if you're planning on meeting for the run or meeting at the park.

See you there!

Don't pitta's against each other!

Tue 30 Nov
Report written by Ealing runner

Last night 9 of us got together to litter pick one of the 'hotspots' of Ealing... Drayton Green

We split into groups and head off into the night in search of litter, head torches at the ready and eyes peeled.

Following our original litter pick bingo creation from earlier this year we found many of the offending items, including; masks, beer bottles, takeaway wrappers, cigarette butts and the rest. Lots of bread too...

We know it was a wild weekend for weather so the rubbish was certainly scattered far and wide.

That litter is toast!

Afterwards a few brave attendees undertook the 100 squat challenge, or so I heard from the comfy position of the pub couch, after the session. Well done for everyone that did the pre- run too Claire, Liv and Jenni and to those that stayed for exercise too- troopers!!

We are sneaking up on Claire's 50th good deed which she will be doing this evening so please do give her some cheers!

We look forward to seeing you this Sunday 5th December for the GG Ealing Christmas Party. Whether you are joining us for Trampolining and/or food- we cant wait to see you. Happy Christmas to those that couldn't make it and we will see you at upcoming sessions, no doubt.

Please follow the links for more information on this weekends Christmas events, otherwise, until next Tuesday stay safe!
