What's the Mat-ter with this task?

Thu 23 Jun
Report written by John Shirley

The Dockland Settlements Community Centre has heavy judo mats which need putting away after the community judo class. It’s a big job for one caretaker: sixty mats have to be lifted and sorted! So naturally, they sent for GoodGym.

We were told the task would take two people twenty minutes, and that the time would be halved if we had four people. (so someone was good at Maths in primary school…). In fact, SIX willing GoodGymers turned up! Marta even arrived from South of the River, though to be honest she only had to walk through the foot tunnel. Meanwhile Fiona took the chance to continue her half-marathon training in Island Gardens.

With the job completed in ultra-quick time, we offered our services for other tasks, but were told everything was done, so we faced an agonising decision. Should we drink in the Lord Nelson, or the Old Millwall Fire Station? There could be only one solution: we visited both! Quite a satisfactory evening, in many respects.

Boxed-in at AgeUK for Food2You HQ

Thu 23 Jun
Report written by Emma Rapley

Having enjoyed the walk from Elephant&Castle, I arrived to pull apart, disinfect and scrub food delivery boxes and crates for Food2You. Just over an hour was spent in the sunny garden where 14 clear plastic boxes, 14 lids and three black crate boxes were carefully cleaned and prepped for the next food run.

THE BIG MONDAY NIGHT TASK: Clearing Hogweed in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park

Mon 4 Jul 19:00 pm
Tower Hamlets Cemetary Park, The Soanes Centre, Southern Grove, Mile End, E3 4PX
We're back to the Cemetery Park to help clear more footpaths...

PLEASE WEAR LONG SLEEVES AND TROUSERS FOR THIS TASK.

The story behind the task

Manager Ken of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park has asked for GoodGymers to lend a hand clearing the footpath in this beautiful, well used park, as the park has suffered with a lower-than-usual supply of volunteers over the last couple of years.

What are we doing tonight, and why?

We’re heading to the wildflower meadow area known as Highglade in this evening’s task, where we’ll be dealing with the invasive, pesky Common Hogweed!

It’s essential to a park this size that a range of nectar-rich plants, such marigolds and yarrow, are allowed to flourish. These are the plants that foragers (pollinators) can really grab hold of.

The Common Hogweed is invasive, and needs many pairs of additional hands to prevent it taking hold.

We’ll be helping Ken, and the Cemetery Park team, a lot, by getting together in this beautiful spot this evening, to get stuck in to this rewarding task.

What you need to know

  • We'll meet at 7pm by the Southern Grove Entrance, just outside The Soanes Centre.

  • After grabbing gloves, we'll make our way to the pretty Highglade area of the park to make a start on tonight's clearing.

  • The park will supply gloves but please bring your own too. Please wear long sleeves and long trousers.

  • We have allowed 90 minutes for this task, but you can leave earlier if you need to!

SPEED DEED: Putting away gym mats at Docklands Settlement Centre

Thu 23 Jun 20:30 pm
The Dockland Settlements Community Centre at Calder's Wharf, 4A Saunders Ness Road, Isle of Dogs, E14 3PS
We've been asked to help staff put away exercise mats in this quick, active task!

Writes The Dockland Settlements Community Centre, “The Centre has large, heavy judo mats in a multi-use hall that need putting away after a weekly judo class.

It’s a big job for one person. Our regular caretaker would love a hand putting the mats away, and would be very grateful if any of your volunteers could help.

The task involves the following:

  • Arrive Thursday evening, at 8:30pm.

  • Help pile 60 judo mats into two piles (it takes two people to a mat, for safe lifting).

  • We expect it will take approximately 20 minutes for two people, halving this time for every other two people.

  • You can read details of how the team last Saturday got on here!
