Den dismantling

Tue 14 Sep
Report written by Beth Sawyer

Three runners met at the Phoenix Cinema and ran to Coldfall Woods, where we were joined by several others. The task owner, Linda, explained that our job was to dismantle some dens and use the logs and branches from them to restore the edging around the paths. Not only would this stop people from creating new paths through vulnerable bits of woodland that need protecting, it also provides a habitat for insects - which in turn will attract more birds and other wildlife to the wood.

We worked quickly in the fading light and managed several dens.

Huge apologies again to those we didn't manage to find in the woods. I'm sorry for your wasted evening - and also sorry for us that we missed out on your company and help with the task.

Forest denstruction!

Tue 7 Sep
Report written by Paul Salman

Goodgym members gathered at this extraordinary forest in the middle of North London to help the Rangers of Highgate woods. We met with Gilbert who suggested we were employed to search and destroy several of the dens. The structures are potentially dangerous and do not provide a useful habitat for woodland life in particular the insects and fungi. The wood is better rotting on the floor. We destroyed four structures before running back to the cafe area to do some exercises. Good fun and a good deed done on a lovely sunny day.

Pastures new as five years pass for Goodgym barnet

Tue 24 Aug
Report written by Paul Salman

Seven GoodGym members came together to help Long Lane Pastures,a nature reserve in the middle of Finchley. We met up with the friends of the Pastures Donald, Wayne and Maureen. They asked us to help to clear the paths of weeds and to rake up the recently cut long grass. It was a beautiful evening as we started our work. To our surprise Donald had remembered that it was the anniversary of the formation of Goodgym Barnet and that we had visited on our first mission five years ago. They had generously arranged a birthday cake for us to consume at the end of our task. Much appreciated and let's hope we can continue to help them in the years ahead.

keey active and doing good!

Help look after a nature reserve.

Tue 24 Aug 19:00 pm
Long Lane Pasture, Barnet, London , N3 2RN
Improve the environment

Long Lane Pasture is a 1.1 hectare nature reserve in Finchley in the London Borough of Barnet. It is owned by Barnet Council and managed by the Long Lane Pasture Trust. The council does not contribute any funds to the Trust. The trust relies on local volunteers and under a management plan agreed with the council, the site is managed to protect its wildlife value and maintain and enhance its biodiversity. There is access by a footpath from Long Lane immediately north of the North Circular Road. We may look to do a local run or group exercise.
