Grease is the Word

Mon 8 Aug
Report written by Tabitha Skinner

It was one of those warm Summer Nights when Goodgymers CJ Lee and Tabitha met in Willesden ready for a good deed. We ran like Greased Lightning to Granville community kitchen where Leslie was gladly waiting for the keen trio, and kindly gave us glasses of water to cool down after the warm run.

Granville regularly makes food for the local community and we were there to help give the kitchen oven a deep clean. It was time to Don our gloves and get Physical with Lee cleaning the racks and trays and CJ and Tabitha focusing on the hob and inside of the oven. We scrubbed hard, removing all the grease and grime until we could (almost) see our faces in the oven.

Leslie was grateful for our help so we said good bye and after a quick discussion of whether to go home or not, we decided We go together for a drink in a local pub

Becka joined us not for a good deed but for a good drink and we all had a lovely catch up with a pint and some chips.

It turned colder, that's where it ends

See you next time!

Charity begins at home.

Mon 13 Jun
Report written by Liz James

Five enthusiastic GGs met outside Papagayo for an evening of exercise, exercise and more exercise! The evening began with a quick warm-up.

The team quickly set off for their run to Abbey Community Centre. Unfortunately, when they arrived, there wasn't a task. CJ saved the day by kindly offering us use of her garden for a HITT workout!! CJ completed her good deed by supplying drinking water to 5 thirsty runners. She even offered the runners the task of watering the plants!

There were two round robin rounds in which each team member choose two exercises. After the workout was complete, the team ran back to Papagayo for some cool down stretches.

This week we head down to Abbey Community Centre. This local community centre provides all kinds of sessions and activities and is vital for the community around it. We'll be helping to distribute leaflets so local residents are aware of the services the centre offers. It's a slightly longer run, just under 4km each way but remember no one is left behind and we'll go at a pace that works for all.

We're still at Papagayo Cafe - we can leave bags but the run leaders or Taskforce will help with this to prevent any unnecessary congregation inside! Please try to minimise what you bring.

I don’t be-leaflet-it!

Mon 14 Mar
Report written by Liz James

I don't be-leaflet-it! Five fabulous Good Gymers arrived this evening, keen and eager to set to work. The evening began with a short warm-up, followed by a run to Bravington Road.

After the task was explained to us, Tabitha and CJ set off to Portnall Road and quickly delivered all of their leaflets in, I can hardly be-leaflet it, record time!

Meanwhile, Sam and Lee began delivering leaflets on one side of Bravington Road, whilst Liz set to work, delivering leaflets on the other side of the road.

We were soon sadly out of time. CJ and Sam headed home, whilst Lee, Tabitha and Liz ran back to base for I really can't be-leaflet it, a well deserved beverage!

Grill looks Brill at Granville

Mon 28 Feb
Report written by Tabitha Skinner

On a wet Monday night, Goodgym Brent met in Willesden and hid under the shelter of the library until we all arrived. We warmed up and ran a speedy 1.5 km to Granville Community Kitchen where Leslie was waiting for us, who kindly let us hang our wet coats, hats and gloves on the radiator.

Granville community kitchen empowers the local community through food related activities enabling the South Kilburn community to access nutritious, affordable and sustainable food. http://granvillecommunitykitchen.org.uk/ Leslie explained the work they do and gave us leaflets for us to join their radical weekly veg bag scheme, good food box , http://granvillecommunitykitchen.org.uk/good-food-box/

The kitchen needs a monthly deep clean and this could be the start of a regular task for us . We split into four groups and got started. Tabitha and Pete cleaned the sinks and surfaces , Emily and CJ cleaned two fridges , Liz cleaned a fridge in the corridor and Sam & Roberto tackled the filthy oven . With 8 of us working hard we completed the tasks in no time at all and the kitchen was left gleaming.

Hopefully you can spot which photos are the before and which are the after! Leslie was grateful for the help and we put our warm dry jackets on and headed off home.

Great job team Brent !
