Ian & Stuart turned up at Mr A's house to move a rug, and ended up talking all the time about books! Well, the bookcase had to be half-emptied to lift it enough to slide the rug out from underneath, which gave us plenty of time to see the titles and chat with Mr A about his varied choices - Nabakov, Peter May biography, Folio Society sets - science, politics and classic literature nestling side by side.
Oh the rug? Easy peasy once the bookcase was done, rolled up out of the way and no longer a trip hazard.

Report written by Mark Gilyead

Tonight we were spreading the word about St Christopher's Hospice's new C.A.R.E. building which has it's opening event for the public on Saturday!

We were armed with a few hundred flyers and a few roads and a couple of flat blocks to blitz on our group run, and even though there were two of us, we still smashed it in good time ⏱

As [Ian](Ian noted, we really did have quite the tour of 20th century buildings, from art deco flat blocks to old manor houses to ultra modern new builds along our designated routes!

Each taking a side, we jogged round the estates, with a little detour around the park, and racked up a solid 5k!

GREAT STUFF πŸ‘πŸ‘

Flyering for St Christopher's Hospice

Bridge House, 2 High St, London, SE20 8RZ
Help spread the word about the opening event for their new building

πŸƒβ€β™€οΈWelcome to GoodGym Bromley!πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

We’re a super friendly group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. Every Wednesday (or in this case Monday!!) 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

Today we'll be spreading the word about St Christopher's Hospice opening event for their new CARE building on Sat 25th. It's a chance for the local community to come together and learn about why hospice care is so important.

They've asked us to help with flyering around the houses in the immediate vicinity between Penge and Sydenham, right near to the Bridge House. We'll have about 300 flyers to distribute so need all hands on deck!

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

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!

Mrs M's shopping list was clearly the treats list - including chocolate eclairs and lemon slices. Oooh, can I have some of that please? (photo from unsplash - shoutout to https://unsplash.com/@dilja96)

Twiggy In The Middle

Report written by Mark Gilyead

We had a lovely bunch this evening for a run, a good deed and even a bit of yoga!


We had a quick warm up in the park before making our way to St John's the Evangelist, a church with some big old wooden struts holding it up 😬 and also a lovely little 'meadow' out the side. It was an uphill run, but we managed it, partly distracting ourselves by talking about our lunch/dinner plans (apparently 5pm is too early for dinner?!)

When we arrived Helen showed us our task - bagging up a load of compost for it to be sieved to get the good stuff.

A Stick-y Situation

The challenge was to avoid bagging the sticks and twigs which were pretty well dispersed throughout the compost heap. And not forgetting a load of rubbish which made it's way in too.

After a solid 40 or so minutes, we called it a day having filled a lot of bags.

We then had a quick jog back to the park, for a lovely, relaxing yoga session with Emma, who took us through various positions which gave us a good stretch after our run - Thanks Emma!

And great running and shovelling and forking everyone!


Lovely to meet you all and hopefully see you again soon!

Next week there isn't a group run but we do have a Community Mission (same kinda thing but you meet there) on Tuesday for Anerley Town Hall and the Wednesday after that we may be lucky enough to go in the secret garden in CP Park!

Shovelling compost onto the beds @ St John's Meadow

πŸƒβ€β™€οΈWelcome to GoodGym Bromley!πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

THE TASK

This week we're heading to St John's the Evangelist. They've got a little meadow which they're turning into a little haven for insects and people. Our task is to empty out the compost bins into bags. Then if we have time we'll repair the bins and sift some of the compost.

Please bring gardening gloves! 🧀🧀

We'll have a bonus running yoga session led by Emma in the park when we get back!!

Weed By Example

Wed 18 Aug

Report written by Mark Gilyead

Bromley group runs are back! They're on a different day for now and there's a new AA (hiπŸ‘‹) but we're back doing good in the places that need a hand.


Tonight 3 musketeers, met outside the Bridge House, we had a quick warm up in the park and then we hit the road, expanding our route to a nice but hilly 2k.

Our destination was Melvin Hall, a regular for GG Bromley, to do another regular task - weeding! 🌱

Melvin Hall is a community centre in Penge and has only recently opened its doors after a year of closure, so the weeds were tall and taking over the car park.

Equipped with hoes, shears and plenty of black bags, we got to work. Ian and Clare got off to a cracking start clearing the building side of little and large weeds whilst I pulled up a few big weeds round the corner. We gradually made our way around the perimeter until reaching the neighbour's fence. Slightly worried we'd pull the fence down because of all the overgrowing bushes, we got the shears out and tamed the beast just enough to make it look presentable!

After a solid 45 minutes, we bagged up the weeds and hit the road.

Weed did it!

I remembered to take some before photos, but not so many afters... but it looked impeccable πŸ‘Œ

NEXT WEEK we're heading to St John's Meadow to empty some compost bins onto some veg beds! Sign up here!

Clearing the car park of wood @ Melvin Hall

How much wood would a wood cutter cut?

Probably quite a lot if they were a GoodGymer with a team of other wonderful GoodGymers.

That's our challenge for this week - saw down a load of wood so the team at Melvin Hall can fit it in their van to take it to the dump!

It's our first group run back! And there are a couple of changes to take note of:

πŸŽ’ Due to Covid restrictions, the Bridge House has said we can't leave bags/coats/shoes etc. there whilst we run - please come ready to run!

🚲 You can however leave a bike in the beer garden, and if you've got a lockable pannier, that could be a good alternative?

🧀 Please bring gardening gloves with you - you can grab them from DIY shops or even Homebase round the corner.

🀿 Please bring a mask!

πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ Mark (me) is the new 'Area Activator' who will be leading the session


If you haven't been on a group run before, here's how it works:

We meet just from 6:50pm outside the pub ➑️ at 7pm we do a quick intro/warm up ➑️ We jog to a local organisation (relaxed pace - no one gets left behind) ➑️ We do a 30 minute physical task ➑️We run back for 8:30pm, stopping off in a park for a quick fitness sesh!
