Georgia Ford has done a 6 month mission streak. Wed 4 Nov 2020

Georgia just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Georgia a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.

And just like that GG Hounslow turns 4!

Wed 4 Nov
Report written by Michelle

Tonight 11 of us got stuck into the brambles at Gunnersbury Park while not too far away Ana and 3 more GGH crew helped out at a local primary school.

Six bags full of the prickly stuff and we'd finally made it 180 degrees around one tree. It's taken a while but Emily, Georgia, Ben, Harvey and Andy made light work of the lopping while Laura raked the debris.

Meanwhile Luis and JP were on bagging up duty, Remy was taking out the day’s presidential election frustrations with a good bramble bashing and Michelle and Salwa collected up the pesky thorns thanks to double gloves and sheer determination.

Despite not being able to celebrate our 4th birthday in the usual way we will make up for it when we're all back together doing group tasks again.

On the eve of lockdown #2 there's nowhere we'd rather be than helping our local park and keeping up our weekly Wednesday tradition at the local.

Our good weed of the day!

Report written by Jennifer

It was cold, it was wet and it was dark but that didnt dampen the spirits of the 13 runners who gave up their cosy Wednesday night in to return to the Chiswick Allotments.

I think the return of our very missed members Eloise and Matt had something to do with the rain staying off ( It never rains on Wednesdays when Matt is there)

We all got stuck in, if we keep moving and digging you almost forget you cant feel your fingers and toes!

before long it was time to herb our enthuiasm and get our twiggle on!

In goodgym hounslow fashion we made a socially distanced visit to the local watering hole to enjoy some brownies ans cake to celebrate Amandas 50th deed!

Keep calm and bramble on

Sat 24 Oct
Report written by Michelle

This morning 10 goodgym volunteers gave up their time to carry on brambling where we’d left off a couple of weeks ago. The brambles are growing thick and fast around many of the trees in Gunnersbury Park.

But we like a challenge so armed with loppers we made a good go of it and will pick up again in a couple of weeks when we’re back on a Wednesday evening.

Hopefully with rakes and sheers next time so we can make more of a dent in the brambles and clear what we’ve cut away.

Thanks for all your hard work today everyone and big congrats to Amanda on your 50th good deed! as the cake baker nodded off, we will celebrate you in style tomorrow at the next Community Mission!!

Satisfaction guarantreed

Wed 21 Oct
Report written by Michelle

Tonight 12 Goodgymers made light work of weeding and digging along one of West London’s famous streets and the task owners could not have been more complimentree at how much we got done.

Staveley Road in Chiswick is home to 91 Cherry Trees that provide the most beautiful pink blossom every spring. The residents of Staveley Road take care to protect the trunks with weeding and maintaining the tree beds during the changing seasons. It’s a task a few of us have done before and loved seeing the results in April, especially this year with the road providing a welcome diversion for runs and walks during lockdown.

We were greeted by two of the residents and provided with tools and bags to collect unwanted weeds. We worked in pairs around the tree beds, clearing, weeding and tending to the ground.

The local residents had made a start and our job was to carry on, with the aim of working on 10 or so trees. But little did they know how efficient a group of West London Goodgymers can be with the right tools! After just over an hour we’d managed to complete all of remaining tree beds. Mission accomplished!

Slim pickings

Wed 14 Oct
Report written by Andy

As the nights get chillier and Goodgym runners start seeking the warmth of indoor tasks, a few brave individuals remain out in the dark to keep the streets in check.

Tonight it was the job of Michelle, Luis, Harvey, Georgia and Andy - who with gloves donned and litter pickers ready went in search of a challenge. Scouting around Brentford initially we were struggling to find more than the ocassional receipt, but after some teamwork and searching we managed to find a wide assortment of rubbish, ranging from discarded masks and gloves, to a takeaway container full of noodles, to even a fresh £10 note! (which was donated appropriately)

After 45 minutes of solid searching, picking and bagging, we had two bulging sacks full of rubbish and ready for disposal. For now the streets of Brentford are a slightly tidier place!
