Sat 27 Nov

It's back! We are back at Surrey Docks Farm every last Saturday of the month!

Gemma and Kate (coordinators at the Farm) need 6 volunteers to help out with a host of tasks from weeding to sieving compost and from bagging manure to sweeping the goats pen. There's always plenty to do! The session is from 14:00-16:00.

  • Please remember to bring your own gloves and wear facemasks at this task
  • Adhere to the Farm's COVID measures at all times
  • This is a popular and in-demand task, so please sign up and turn up on the day if you can commit. Otherwise, please give the space to someone else.

As always, the last hour half is spent cuddling goats, sheep and all the other Farm animals! Hope you can join us and say hello to the pigs, goats and sheep again!

Sweeping the Autumn Leaflets

Report written by Alex Murtough

I have broken a GoodGym code. Which is a code that no GoodGymer should break. And that is a code of timeliness.

For it is over 36 and nearly 48 hours since this wonderful Greenwich group got to the streets. And I've yet to write the run report.

I think - somewhere deep in GoodGym's founding documents - there's a rule that mean I should be docked 10 good deeds.

But anyway, here are my thoughts and recollections from Wednesday's happy evening.

11 of us met in our old haunt - the beautiful Royal Naval College - and we did so next to one rather big film set. So do watch out keen film buffs, for you may see some red-t-shirted good-deeders in the background of something soon...

And we were off to leaflet - to leaflet or our friends at Age Exchange. They are having a Christmas Fair at Blackheath Halls on Sunday 21 November, with all proceeds going to support Age Exchange in Blackheath, which helps people and their carers live well with dementia.

We shot up and around (in two groups) the streets surrounding Greenwich Park, spreading the news that there's a Christmas Fair in town. And it's a socially-focused and community-positive one at that.

Afer 45 minutes of word-spreading, jogging, walking, nattering, and giggling, we headed back to the lights of the College for a good ol' stretch and cool down.

As always, big big big thanks to Rachel for organising everything :)

Nice one.

We Were Greenwich-ing to Get Back...

Wed 3 Nov

Report written by Alex Murtough

Some people like to count down to Christmas. Just this week someone told me it was 7 weeks to go. Eeeek. And they didn't even look especially festive, so it must be fairly common.

And some people count down to other things. Like birthdays - or holidays - or (my favourite) pay days.

But we, in Greenwich, had been waiting for something a little more unique. In addition to birthdays, holidays, and pay days. Because it'd been 602 days since our last group run. I know this because I tattooed a very small 'GoodGym' logo on my body for every day that went by.**

And last night the waiting was up and we were off to start spreading our good-deeding energy across Greenwich again. Most of us met at the very lovely Charlton House for some pre-session nattering, giggling, and chatting. GG Greenwich old-hands (and friendly faces) were joined by Jonathan, who was on their first GG outing, and Debbie, who was on their first group run with GG Greenwich - welcome to the family, guys!

It was a full moon last night and after a quick warm up, we collectively howled 'RED THUNDER'*** to mark our come back, before setting off to the wonderful Glyndon Community Centre in Plumstead. Which is where we were met by the lovely GG Greenwich Area Activator, Rachel, and all-round wonderful souls, Jennifer, Pieter, and Matt.

In 2 weeks, we'll be coming back to Glyndon to get painting. But last night was prep night and we got to work sanding and sugar soaping. It was quick and swift, but with 19 hands a-working, you can always get a fair bit done.

After that, it was back to the roads for a steady and happy jaunt back to Charlton. Where we celebrated being back and together with a drink at the Bugle Horn.

A big big big thank you to Rachel for organising everything yesterday :)

Here's to the next one next week, and the one the week after, and the week after that...

Nice one.

GoodGym Greenwich group run and painting at Glyndon!

Wed 17 Nov 18:30 pm
Charlton House, Charlton, , London, SE7 8RE
Get fit and do good in Greenwich

Hi everyone and welcome to GoodGym Greenwich!

We're a friendly and social group who combine running with volunteering in the local community. Since May 2020 we paused our group runs but now they're back! We meet every Wednesday to get active and do a physical task for charities and community organisations in the area.

The Task

We will be helping out at Glyndon Community Centre in Plumstead. They need loads of help with painting and gardening and other odd jobs around the centre so we will be returning here on a regular basis. This will be an indoor task.

The Run

We will be running from Charlton to Plumstead which will be about 3km each way. As it's a bit of a way to walk, you're welcome meet us at the task at 7.15pm if that's too far to run this week.

Where & When

This week we'll meet at 6.30pm for a 6.45pm sharp start outside Charlton House on the corner of Hornfair Road and Charlton Road.

We should be all wrapped up by 8.30pm.

What To Bring

Please bring a headtorch as it will be dark travelling to and from the task.

See you then!

GoodGym Greenwich group run and leafleting!

Wed 10 Nov 18:45 pm
Queen Anne Building, Old Royal Naval College, 30 Park Row, LONDON, SE10 9LS
Get fit and do good in Greenwich

Hi everyone and welcome to GoodGym Greenwich!

We're a friendly and social group who combine running with volunteering in the local community. Since May 2020 we paused our group runs but now they're back! We meet every Wednesday to get active and do a physical task for charities and community organisations in the area.

The Task

This week we are doing some leafleting for our friends at Age Exchange. They are having a Christmas Fair in the Blackheath Halls on Sunday 21 November and will be bringing together specially selected crafters, artisans and designers selling a wide range of handmade and bespoke gifts. All proceeds go to support Age Exchange in Blackheath which helps people and their carers live well with dementia, reducing isolation and loneliness.

The Run

The run is just over 1.5km each way. It is a walkable distance so you are welcome to join us at whatever pace - we never ever leave anyone behind!

Where & When

We will meet at 6.45pm for a 7 o'clock start at the Old Royal Naval College between the Queen Mary and Queen Anne buildings.

We will run to the corner of Maze Hill and Vanbrugh Park where we'll distribute the leaflets and split into teams to cover the surrounding streets.

Do let us know in the comments if you plan to meet us there so we know who to expect for the run. The session will be about 90 minutes in total so we should be all wrapped up by 8.30pm.

What To Bring

Please bring a headtorch and warm clothes as we will likely be outside for the whole session. Apart from that, just yourself!

See you then!

The Task

For our first group run in a while we will be helping out at Glyndon Community Centre in Plumstead. They need loads of help with painting and gardening and other odd jobs around the centre so we will be returning here on a regular basis. This week we will be doing some painting indoors and a spot of weeding in the garden.

The Run

We will be running from Charlton to Plumstead which will be about 3km each way. As it's a bit of a way to walk, you're welcome meet us at the task at 7.30pm if that's too far to run this week (Glyndon Community Centre, 75 Raglan Road, SE18 7LB).

Where & When

We meet at 6.45pm for a 7 o'clock start outside Charlton House on the corner of Hornfair Road and Charlton Road. Unfortunately we don't have a location to store bags so come prepared to run!

The session will be about 90 minutes in total so we should be all wrapped up by 8.30pm at which point we can have a drink at the Bugle Horn in Charlton Village to celebrate getting our group runs back!

See you then!

Claire Oxlade has done a 6 month mission streak. Thu 21 Oct 2021

Claire just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Claire a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.
