Love (of litter picking) is in the air (DIY - Valentine's Day special;))

Sun 14 Feb 07:00 am
Global Cafe carpark, Fox Burrow Road, Hainault Forest Country Park, Chigwell, IG7 4QL
Get some gentle exercise whilst making your local area better

Please follow all Covid guidelines

What can be more romantic than getting outside for some litter picking loving on your own or with whomever you live with?;) Get frisky with those bin bags and sensually use your litter picker to reach the maximum rubbish. OK, that's enough now :)

Photo Challenge: Find as many hearts or heart-shaped things on your litter-pick and send me a collage please with one selfie of your lovely self:)

Get out for that daily exercise and do some good. Ensure you avoid busy areas, stay local and keep yourself and others safe!

Supermarket Sweep around Camden

Sun 7 Feb

Life After Hummus, a local food-waste-fighting charity based in Camden needs our help this Sunday between 11:30am-3pm, picking up time-sensitive food from two shops and bringing it back to their warehouse on Drummond Street.

The plan: Two teams of two runners have a shift each. Maintain social distancing and remember your masks (and gloves if you want to use them) when you're going into the supermarkets.

11:30am-1pm: First pair of runners to arrive at the Old Diarama Arts Centre, 201 Drummond Street, NW1 3FE Here you'll meet Becky, one of the main coordinators. She'll give you a quick rundown of what's what and then give you a little trolley to take down to the first shop: M&S on Edgware Road (Marks and Spencer, 258 Edgware Rd, W2 1DU - on the crossroads by the Tube station) Pick up what the shop is giving away to Life After Hummus and then trundle back to the warehouse.

1pm-3pm: Second pair of runners meet at the warehouse and take over. You'll be heading to the Aldi Local - Camden, 125-133 Camden High St, Camden Town, NW1 7JR to pick up their wares and return it back.

If you'd like to help out, please sign up by Thursday at 12pm, as I'll need to let Becky know if we haven't been able to make up the numbers, so she has time to find others to help.

Job done and one that could definitely become more regular over the rest of the year!

Two By Two

Tue 29 Dec
Report written by John Shirley

Four Camden GoodGym enthusiasts signed up at short notice to assist the Camden Foodbank at 11:30 the following day. Two of the participants attended a preparatory 9am Zoom meeting, during which task owner Abe received a call advising him there was to be a delivery from Tesco in just 40 minutes time - so two runners were urgently needed to assist.

As I live in Camden Town, I roused fellow-GoodGymer Jackie from bed and we hot-footed it to the foodbank, where we cleared the stairs of cardboard boxes, allowing the food delivery man and his daughter plenty of room to carry crates of provisions up to the store area. We crushed and bagged the boxes for recycling.

At the original start time, Abi and Isobel arrived. This was Abi’s 372nd and penultimate GoodGym mission while London-based, but she’s already signing up to continue the good work at GoodGym York. In the meantime, together with Isobel, she shifted and sorted a lot of crates to enable the foodbank to service those in need.

Limited to 4 on this session, but there will be more sessions available in January if you miss out this time round. Don't forget - as this is an indoor task - to bring your facemask and hand sanitiser with you and remember that social distancing is still very important.
