Gardening and litter picking at Cricklewood Millennium Green

Sat 6 Nov 11:00 am
23 Claremont Road, Cricklewood, London, NW2 1BP
Improvement of local green space frequently used by dog walkers & local residents

This mission will involve weeding, litter picking and trimming of shrubs. Please bring your own gloves and snacks. All other equipment will be provided.

GoodGym members have already provided great help to the local community with this local amenity. The Cricklewood Millenium Green is a small green space built on what used to be railway land and air raid shelters. It boasts a number of railway-related sculptures made especially for the Green by a local artist, as well as marked nature trail.

The Green has had a lot of work done over the summer and it is looking much better as a result.

So come and help keep the Green looking Great!

Caution ⚠️ Runners

Sun 17 Oct
Report written by Danny

Amongst a healthy roster of volunteers at Paddington Rec Junior ParkRun today we were assigned variously to marshalling and tail-walking. Of a field of 28 runners there were 6 PBs and they were all round in just 16 minutes. Afterwards we went off to visit family for some tea ☕, or make a spooky pumpkin curry. 🎃

Less waste, more fashion!

Sat 16 Oct
Report written by Daniel Mermelstein

Five goodgymers went on a mission to help the Barnet Mutual Aid group reduce food waste in north London.

It was not a very auspicious start: it was raining and Paul did not approve of my waterproof attire - who knew that GoodGym had a dress code! :-)

But as we cycled in the rain towards the Waitrose in Brent Cross, the weather and everyone's spirits brightened as we approached our destination, where we met the walkers of the group.

There we collected several rucksacks-worth of surplus food from a very welcoming and jolly team of Waitrose staff who couldn't quite believe we didn't have a car! And off we went to Hendon, where our hosts awaited the delivery.

Every week the Surplus Club collects this food and gives it out for free to the local residents. This is not a food bank because everyone can take what they want regardless of need, and do their bit to avoid wasting food. We were glad to be able to help with this effort and hope to do it again on a regular basis.

It was mission accomplished and we even found time for a coffee and cake back at base. Then it was back home to plan the wardrobe for the next mission!

Thank you to Kat, Danny, Vicki and Paul for the sterling effort!

Free food for everyone. Help reduce food waste in Barnet!

Sat 16 Oct 10:30 am
Waitrose, Brent Cross Shopping Centre, London, NW4 3FQ
We'll be helping to reduce food waste and participating in an exciting local initiative that brings people together around sharing food and helping each other

Mutual Aid Barnet collect surplus food from supermarkets and make it available to local people through their "Surplus Club".

This is not only for people who can't afford food, but for anyone who cares about minimising food waste. In fact, you can take some food with you at the end of the mission if you want!

Our task is to help Mutual Aid Barnet collect some of the surplus food for their Surplus Club.

We will be cycling to the Waitrose supermarket in Brent Cross (or you can join us there), collecting the food and delivering it to the Surplus Club in Hendon.

From Waitrose to Hendon is a ten minute cycle ride.

If your bike has paniers, please bring them. Otherwise bring a rucksack.

Please note that this mission involves cycling and carrying a load.

If you care about food waste and want to help reduce it, this task is for you!

50% PB

Sun 12 Sep
Report written by Danny

The Junior ParkRun had a total 14 volunteers today which is a really good turnout, so we were able to take it a bit easy and do just one role each. Amongst them were quite a few volunteering for the first time, and one of the runners leading the warm-up. After a bit of shuffling, Kat and I were assigned to marshalling and handing-out finish tokens respectively.

Kat had the best spot on the course at the last corner before the finish, so got to be the one cheering the runners down the last straight to the finish.

Across the 32 runners there were 8 recorded PBs and 8 first-timers (which is effectively a PB) so in total half the runners got PBs!
