Raising The Stakes

Tue 17 May
โ€ข
Report written by Mark Gilyead

What a lovely crew for a warm evening's jog and good deed!

We met at the Bridge House, shared our favourite household chores (or I guess just the best of a bad bunch...), warmed up (more) in the park and then basically sprinted down the hill to Cator Park. Seriously, it was a cracking pace! ๐Ÿ’โ€โ™‚๏ธ

When we arrived, we met Millie, Debs, Lou and Matt who were pleased there were so many of us. After dousing ourselves in bug spray, we split into 4 groups:

๐Ÿ”จ Ian (see pic featuring lovely rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ) and Alex were hammering in stakes to keep the new trees upright. They were then weeding and mulching the areas around the trees so the weeds don't take all of the water...

๐Ÿ†™ Kate and George were putting special tree rubber bands and string around the stakes and new trees so they grew in the right direction.

๐ŸŒฑClare and Maxim were planting a few wee shrubs and trees and weeding the rose beds.

๐ŸŒด And Nick, Sam and I were weeding a patch near some little memorials and putting some tree trunks around the edge.

Basically, we did loads.

Millie was saying how the park would look totally different if it weren't for GoodGym's help because they're able to get so much done that they'd often otherwise not get round to. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Nice one gang!

After our good deed, we had a quick game of rock, paper, scissors (squat, plank, sprint) and then ran back for a cool beverage at the pub!

@ Upper Norwood Library Hub

We're heading back to Upper Norwood Library Hub! Their car park out the back requires some attention apparently. Exact details will be posted here nearer to the time but it'll be a fun physical task supporting this fab pillar of the community!

Please bring gardening gloves if you have them (I have a few spare pairs).

Hope you can make it!

Group Run // Helping out at Cator Park

Tue 17 May 19:00 pm
Bridge House, 2 High St, London, SE20 8RZ
Making the park a nice space for locals to enjoy

This week's task will be at the delightful Cator Park. We often help the Friends of Cator and Alexandra parks out with edging paths, planting trees and weeding and we'll be given a nice green task to blitz in 30 minutes.

It's about a 2km run and we'll have some fitness exercises thrown in.

Please bring gardening gloves if you have them (I have a few spare pairs).

Hope you can make it!

Bin There, Dunk That

Tue 3 May
โ€ข
Report written by Mark Gilyead

Seven Superstars met for a lovely evening's run, a good deed for the wonderful Ignition Brewery and we even squeezed in some circuits!

BREW GOOD, GET FIT


First up, we met at The Bridge House, named our favourite cheese (I think we covered every single type?!) and then had a warm up in the park, thoroughly wearing ourselves out before our run...

It was a 2km jog to Ignition Brewery - they're a non-profit brewery providing training and employment for people with learning disabilities - and the car park out the back is where they host a monthly market (selling goods from some other fab social enterprises too!). It was a bit of a mess, with pallets, wardrobe panels and overgrown plants that needed to be binned.

We met Richard (who incidentally went on one of the first ever GoodGym runs in Tower Hamlets! ๐Ÿคฏ) who showed us our tasks:

๐Ÿช“ Stephen and Alex got to work destroying some pallets pronto, employing some sawing and brute force.

๐Ÿ”จ Carla and David were dealing mostly with some wardrobe sides and doors - thankfully they broke into bits very easily (or maybe Carla and David were just in the right mood ๐Ÿ˜ก)

๐ŸŒฑ And Alison and Clare were handling the greenery, snipping off branches from some overgrown plants.

๐Ÿ—‘ All the waste got binned (one of the bins was only opened occasionally due to the indescribable smell...) and Richard even gave us some beer for our troubles! ๐Ÿป

SMASHED IT! (literally.)


We went back via Alexandra Rec, partly to view some of our tree planting exploits, but mostly for a ferocious circuits session.

We had a little carousel of burpees, bicycle crunches, squat jumps and russian twists which the team navigated with aplomb ๐Ÿ‘ and then we headed back.

Nice one gang!

Clearing up the car park at Ignition Brewery

Tue 3 May 19:00 pm
Bridge House, 2 High St, London, SE20 8RZ
Sawing, dismantling and binning pallets etc.

This week we're heading to Ignition, a fab brewery and taproom which provides training and employment to people with learning disabilities to brew, serve and deliver great beer!

There's a bit of junk in their car park which needs breaking down and sticking in the bins. We'll be equipped with saws and (carefully) dismantle whatever they have waiting for us.

It should be a fun one - please bring gardening gloves if you can (I have a few spare pairs).

Hangers & Dash

Tue 12 Apr
โ€ข
Report written by Mark Gilyead

We started off discussing the awkward time of GoodGym and when the best time to have dinner is. We didn't conclude anything really, but it sounded like some of us were going to have a delicious dinner post-run...

We did a quick warm up in the park, learnt my weird anacronym SSSKAB (slightly shorter steps, knees (up), arms, balloon) which hopefully helped us power up the hills on the way to the St Christopher's Hospice charity shop on Cystal Palace Triangle.

Teresa gave us a few tasks:

๐Ÿงฝ Alex and Rebecca were wiping the shelves and hoovering the floor.

๐Ÿ’จ Kate was on steaming duty with Clare who was also...

๐Ÿ‘š Tagging clothes with me!

In no time at all we were done and set sail down the hill and back to base.

5k in the bag and a good deed for a lovely local hospice โœ…

Great stuff gang!
