Helping tidy up Age UK's Great Croft Community Gardens!

Wed 12 Aug 18:45 pm
The St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre, 2 Ossulston Street, London, NW1 1DF

Please note that this community mission has been cancelled.

The day centre users will love to enjoy the gardens

Hello everyone,

Camden's back! Not like normal just yet, but this will be our seventh group run-style Community Mission since we've entered the next stage of lockdown.

We're going to be going down to Age UK's Great Croft Community Garden to lend a hand clearing and weeding this week! We'll meet outside the Living Centre from 6.45pm, and after a short intro, we'll get going just after 7pm. We'll run to and from the task, as if it was a normal group run.

Trainer Ben won't be leading this session - but will be back in October. The Trainer taking the session is TBC, but s/he will be brilliant as we all are, so don't worry about that!

In line with UPDATED UK Athletics and GoodGym guidelines, there will be a sign up limit of 12 runners each week on our runs. Tasks will be run at the same place for 2 weeks in a row, so I ask that if you've signed up to last week's run you don't sign up this week. This will allow more Camdeners to enjoy the tasks, so please think before you double sign up.

As social distancing measures are still in place, please remember the following:

  • Bring your own pair of gloves for the task, that you don't share with others.
  • Any task you'll be asked to complete will be socially-distanced. You're responsible for making sure you keep the 2m distance between you and other GoodGymers while you're working.
  • Tools that you use at the task location will be yours for the time we're there, so please don't share them with anyone else (even with your gloves on).

We meet outside The St Pancras & Somers Town Living Centre, on the other side of the building from the main entrance to the Crick Institute. Look out for the red t-shirts!

There will not be a place to leave your bags and toilets aren't available, so please remember that you need to be able to run in what you bring. This is due to the Living Centre not being open to us just yet, but I'm working on it for future runs.

We welcome all abilities but ask that you are able to run for at least 15 minutes, don't worry though we keep together as a group and no-one is ever left behind! Come along and join us.

After the run we'll run back to Camden and go to somewhere outdoors - probably Granary Square - that sells alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for a socially distanced drink and catch up outside.

Gonna be a good one - I'm looking forward to it!

Ben - Camden Trainer

Im-Peck-Able!

Wed 22 Jul
Report written by Ben

5 GoodGym Camdeners hit the pavements on Wednesday night to install the second birdfeeder at Russell Square Gardens.

Welcome to Clancy - out on her first group run after Sunday's community mission in Upper Holloway. I hope you come to love Camden as much as the rest of us do!

After a quick intro, we jogged the short 1km to David and the Russell Square Gardens to get stuck in with take two of installing another bird feeder at the opposite end of the park.

As this was our second go and digging and levelling, it was a slick operation. Clancy dug the main hole incredibly quickly while John 'surveyed the situation', taking it in turns digging. Meanwhile, Mali, Lauren and Abi took turns to dig the smaller holes needed for the noticeboard. We worked solidly for nearly an hour to get them installed and, despite our best efforts last week, this week's birdfeeder was much more level. Our downfall was using the iPhone spirit level to level the seed tray instead of the actual main post last week, but we made sure not to make the same mistake this time round.

With the task done and the birdfeeders nailed into position (nails acting as anti-theft devices in this scenario), we handed back the tools and waved goodbye to David.

We'll be back in September to help plant the 10,000 bulbs ahead of the spring blooms of 2021. Here's the link to the Friends of Russell Square website if you'd like to keep updated with what they're getting up to, or if you'd like to become a Friend yourself.

Next week we'll be heading to Cecil Sharp House for the first time in 4 months. Susannah is very much looking forward to our help and you can sign up to that run here!

See you next time.

Susannah is desperate for our help in getting the gardens to their former glory

Hello everyone,

Camden's back! Not like normal just yet, but this will be our fifth group run-style Community Mission since we've entered the next stage of lockdown.

We're going to be running up to Susannah and the Cecil Sharp House gardens to lend a hand this week (next week is TBC)! We'll meet outside the Living Centre from 6.45pm, and after a short intro, we'll get going just after 7pm. We'll run to and from the task, as if it was a normal group run.

Gonna be a good, but probably very strange one - I'm looking forward to it!

Helping at St John’s

Sun 19 Jul
Report written by Sally

Seven enthusiastic goodgymmers, including Clancy on her first gg task, came along for our second visit to St John's church to help out in the community garden.

On arrival, Alex, the volunteer coordinator, explained the various tasks and everyone set to work.

Danny did some serious litter picking, filling numerous bags. Rachel focused on weeding the flowerbeds and planted many bulbs. Paul worked with another Paul and built a composting bin out of pallets. The rest of the group set about clearing an area of nettles, brambles and ragwort.

After a couple of hours, we said our goodbyes and went our separate ways.

Well done everyone, thanks for coming along.

Helping at St John's Community Garden

Sun 19 Jul 17:00 pm
St John's Church, Pemberton Gardens, London, N19 5RR
Improve the garden for everyone to enjoy.

St. John’s community garden had sadly been rather neglected until a few months ago when a couple of volunteers started work on it.

There are loads of jobs including: clearing and preparing flower beds, finishing off borders, planting, litter-picking and more.

Alex, the garden volunteer organiser, will be there from 5-7pm. You don’t need to stay for the whole time. Pop along and help out for as long as you can, any help will be appreciated.
