The lovely Leyla at Living Under one Sun needed us to shift a load of pesky leaves that were blowing around the garden making the place messy. We located some wheelbarrows and raked and gathered and bagged in order for the leaves to turn into mulchy goodness for the planting beds.
We were done after much discussion and cajoling of fellow GoodGym members into signing up for races, and confused talk of football scores; Spain losing 5-0, Spain winning 5-0…I was none the wiser…still not!
The resident fox hung round us the entire time inspecting our work as Leyla shared some history of this great community hub…until next time! 😊 🦊
Come and help Luos get ready to open its doors to the public again. There will be a multitude of tasks and Leyla will no doubt provide us with her wonderful oranges during a break. Come. And BRING YOUR MASKS!
The heat got to our 10 Goodgymmers last night as they went wild at the meadow in Lordship Rec in a thistley frenzy.
...to everyone doing the Camino Ultra London race on Saturday - not least our very own Ultra GGHers <3 Win it for us, team!
Thistle Be A Day They Won't Forget
Caroline from the Friends of Lordship Rec welcomed us with open arms and clear, succinct instructions - the thistles were taking over the meadows and the prickly twits needed to be shown who's boss.
Before you could say 'we gotta save them Lady's Bedstraws', our goodgymmers had jumped into the meadows in the shadow of the always beautiful Broadwater Farm Estate and started handing out life lessons on the circle of life to the thistles.
In a warm evening when Goodgym got desperately close to tipping over the 250,000 Good Deeds mark, our GGH Fam pulled well into the evening without a care in the world. Thorny On Main Indeed.
Conversation ranged from the undeniable superiority of bocadillo as a long distance nutritional aid, to our resident GGH doctor diagnosing a few lazy asses. That's the medical term and I'm sticking with it. Just don't ask about how she conducted the physical.
We even had time to stop and glare at a rival running group who kept doing laps around us. Gramps considered briefly leading a group to introduce them to the circle of life curriculum we had been applying to the thistles all evening, but we remembered ourselves and instead waved at them. We'll be back before you know it :)
