WE HAD A LAVENDER TIME AT THE OLD ENGLISH GARDENS 🌸

Mon 23 Aug

Report written by Tim Dickson

Tonight we had an awesome bunch goodgymers assemble outside Crooklog for our gardens task. Nicky and Tom were waiting for us so it was time to get warmed up and head on down. Nick led the walking group whilst Susan warmed up the runners and got them on their way. Thanks Caz for looking after the back runners.

On arrival at the gardens it was all about the Lavender, it was the best smelling task i've been on for a long time, our mission was to cut these back for another year.

I'd like to give a massive shout out to Julian who joined us from Greenwich this evening, we hope you enjoyed our company and welcome back to Sharine, haven't seen you at GG for a long time πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ˜ƒ

After a thorough pruning it was time to get the crew back to Bexley HQ. Well done on another task well done, you guys rock.

A-lot-meant we got the job done

Report written by Sarah Wren

Our group task this week was to help our friends from Bexley Mencap at their allotment.

Working alongside Matt, Liam and Duncan we weeded, cut back thistles and watered. There was time to admire the veg and fruit growing in the plot πŸ…πŸ₯’πŸ§…πŸŒΆπŸŽπŸ₯” and we even met the resident frog 🐸.

Bexley Mencap's allotment belongs to Bexley Learning Enterprise Council and we also helped with communal tasks - clearing pathways, shared areas, borders and verges - for the benefit of all the supported learning plot-holders.

As the sun set the mosquitoes came out so we speedily packed away the tools and posed for a quick team photo.

Just before we headed home Liam thanked us with some Lindor chocolate treats 🍬.

It was fun evening and a big thank you to Bexley Mencap for having us.

What a fab good deed it was last night with our new friends at the United Reform Church, Bexleyheath. Our task was to sort out the flower beds, pick a ton of weeds, and give the area a Bexley Goodgym make over, and thats exactly what we did.

Well whats the chicken diner all about i hear you ask? Well it shows that giving back to our awesome community really pays forward as the awesome team from Bexleyheath Nandos appreciated our hard work and invited us all in for a free chicken meal once we had finsihed our task, so thanks you so much to the team there, you were all awesome and the food was absolutely delicious.

WELLING FC GOT A COUPLE OF NEW SWEEPERS LAST NIGHT 🧹

Mon 26 Jul

Report written by Tim Dickson

Last night was the first group run back, ok not the furthest run we've done but a run none the less. We kicked the evening off with a group warm up then Susan led the group towards our task whilst Caz looked after the gang at the back.

On arrival we were a little shocked to be welcomed by locked gates but this panic was short lived as the staff from the club arrived shortly after us.

A change of plan to was put in place as painting was no longer happening, however this didn't put off team Goodgym as we got ourselves stuck into cleaning up the back terraces whilst having a great chat at the same time.

Thanks to Sarah, Johnny, Peter, Gemma, Caz, Martin, Nick and Susan for getting out and smashing the task, you are all awesome πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ˜ƒ

Report written by Tim Dickson

What an awesome evening down at the Bexley Allotments, it was definitely all hands on deck as we tackled weeds, brambles, laid down sheeting and pulled out roots.

It was great seeing the red shirts buzzing around and working really hard in what was a very hot evening. The transformation was brilliant and i know that 'Duncan' and the guys from 'Bridging the Gap' were over the moon with the results.

Thanks everyone for working so hard, see you soon..............
