White-topia

Mon 15 Nov
Report written by Mark Gilyead

Tonight's Group Run was to Melvin Hall, a community centre in the middle of Penge. We'd already given a gate one coat of paint but another was needed, as well as some fence protector on a new fence panel!

First though, we met at the Bridge House, and then went for a little jog around the park - including a teaser of Lightopia which looks set to be pretty awesome actually. There were even more dinosaurs than usual! And they move. 😬

It was another couple of k until we were at Melvin Hall, where we met John (and Holly and Hannah) and were given brushes and paint.

Sam and Tom got on with the fence while the rest of us blitzed the gate. It took a little while but it gave us a chance to ponder Stephen's big question of the night - "What have we learned today?" Thankfully George shared some wisdom about red lights on headtorches not attracting bugs - enlightened! 💡

Holly learned that hanging bats look like they're dancing if you flip them upside down (see pic...) 😅

We cleaned up (some got messier than others...) and then speedily jogged back up the hill to the Bridge House.

Nice one guys! 🎨🖌

Next Monday we're (hopefully) going to wrap up the painting at Upper Norwood Library Hub - sign up here!

Applying a second coat of paint at Melvin Hall

Mon 15 Nov 18:45 pm
Bridge House, 2 High St, London, SE20 8RZ
To protect the gate 💪

🏃‍♀️Welcome to GoodGym Bromley!🏃‍♂️

We’re a super friendly group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. Every Wednesday we meet to get active and do a physical task to help charities or community organisations across Penge.

WHERE WE MEET

We meet outside the Bridge House pub in Penge. You can lock your bike up in their beer garden but there’s currently nowhere to leave bags so please come ready to run.

THE TASK

Hopefully the last time we'll be tending to the gate at Melvin Hall! We'll be adding another coat of white paint to the gate to help protect it from the weather.

It's a few k away and I'd advise not wearing your finest running gear!

RUNNING WITH US

We welcome runners of all abilities and we always have a back-marker so no one gets left behind. We usually run at a relaxed pace and tasks are never more than 4km from the pub.

Any questions? Drop me an email!

THE TASK

Ignition Brewery in Sydenham employs and trains people with learning disabilities to brew and sell beer.

They've asked us if we can help spread the word by dropping leaflets through doors.

We'll have a short jog to warm up and then you can walk or run between the houses!

GoodGym Bromley does the Ignition Brewery Pub Quiz!

Thu 2 Dec 18:45 pm
Ignition Brewery and Taproom, Ground Floor, The Sydenham Centre, 44a Sydenham Road, London, SE26 5QX
Test your knowledge and support a great social enterprise with GG pals

So it turns out the GoodGymers of Bromley are pretty darn good when it comes to pub quizzes. Our last quiz at the Bridge House earned us 2nd place, a bottle of Prosecco and our money back! 🍾

Can we do any better?

On Thursday 2nd December we descend on the fab Ignition Brewery for their quiz.

It's free, it's from 7-9pm and it's max. 6 people to a team but hopefully we can get 2 teams to pit against each other!

Sign up asap, or by Mon 29th Nov at the latest and I'll book tables to arrive at 18:45.

Email me if you've got any questions. 🍻
