Loughborough Park Educational Garden Part 2 - Tuesday's Group Run !!

Tue 24 May 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
Create an educational space for the community

The team at Urban Canopy are helping out Friends of Loughborough Park throughout May to create a new educational garden within the park. http://www.urbancanopy.org/

The space that we are due to work needs a lot of weeds and old plants removed, but it also has a lot of mature trees, which means we are restricted in terms of the tools we are able to use, so there's a lot of work to do!

Tonight is part 2 of a big task which we will complete over two weeks on our Group Runs.

Get signed up and watch the space take shape from start to finish!

  • is a chance to meet your local trainer.
  • is a good time to get some training and fitness advice if you're new to running.
    • is before a group run, but you don’t have to join the run if you don't want to.

Summer Social Rounders: Victoria Park (Away game) - North vs. South of the River

Sat 16 Jul 16:00 pm
Victoria Park, London, E3 5TB
An inclusive game(s) of social rounders in the sunshine (hopefully) - bring a picnic, BYOB and mates (if you want)

Time to defend your win or get revenge for what happened in Clapham Common a month ago

The second rounders social is finally here!

Who doesn't enjoy an afternoon in the park playing rounders with friends. Of course, there's always some sort of competition when it comes to any sport....even rounders. Come along to meet other GG members from across London for a picnic and a social rounders game between GG members from north of the river against GG members south of the river (we're not strict about this and if one team need more players, we can "loan" them for the afternoon PLUS don't forget we may have non-GG friends).

This is the "Away" game. There will be a first "Home" game on Saturday 18th of June in Clapham Common. Sign up, if you can make that too!

TLDR

  • What: Social Rounders (with picnic, BYOB and invite your non-GG mates)
  • Where: Victoria Park (exact spot to be determined)
  • When: Saturday 16th of July from 16:00 onwards
  • Why: Enjoy an afternoon in the park, play social rounders, eat, drink, meet GoodGymers from other areas and possibly get a sun tan (not promising anything). Importantly, have fun!

Don't know how to play?

Firstly, we welcome all! Just because there's a "North vs. South of the river" narrative, it's all for fun...no one is winning any medals or prizes. If you haven't played before, not to worry, the majority of us have forgotten the rules, so all will be explained on the day. In summary: it's a no-fuss version of Baseball.

Can I still come if I can't make the start?

Have other commitments earlier or like to be fashionably late? That's fine. It's all social, so come and go as you please! We might start off with a practice hit around before our "socially competitive" game. If the rounders is all over by the time you arrive, just come and chill with a picnic. I'm sure a few of us will stay until the sun starts to set.

Hope to see you there!

If you have any questions, please put it down in the "Discussion" below and I'll get to you ASAP. Otherwise, you can email me at samuel@goodgym.org.

Summer Social Rounders: Clapham Common (Home game) - North vs. South of the River

Sat 18 Jun 16:00 pm
Clapham Common, London, SW4 9DE
An inclusive game(s) of social rounders in the sunshine (hopefully) - bring a picnic, BYOB and mates (if you want)

What's the best way to get GoodGymers from across London together over the summer?

Organise a social in the park with (hopefully) the glorious British summer sunshine and an added element of a nostalgic game of rounders.

Of course, there's always some sort of competition, but in a fun environment. Come along to meet other GG members from across London for a picnic and a social rounders game between GG members from north of the river against GG members south of the river (we're not strict about this and if one team need more players, we can "loan" them for the afternoon PLUS don't forget we may have non-GG friends).

We know everyone cannot make this date due to other commitments or location, so there will be a second social rounders on Saturday 16th of July in Victoria Park. Consider this the "Home" game and that second social date, the "Away" game. Sign up to both, if you can make it!

Horsing Around 🐴

Sat 23 Apr
β€’
Report written by Sam Lefevre

Six GoodGymers turned up on a sunny Saturday at Thorlands.

Simon wanted the gang to tackle what GoodGym Southwark started on their group run a few Wednesdays ago - tackling the bindweed roots by the Forest Food Garden fence as well as some weeding and litter picking in and around this acre of space.

Lucie and Tilly worked together to save a Horsechestnut tree. 🐴

Kaz and Sarah really took care of the bindweed roots whilst Jessie concentrated on weeding.

The hour and a half session ended with a harvest from Simon who gave a variety of leafy greens suggested for a stir fry.

Some of us will be back on Tuesday when GG Lambeth group run visits Thorlands! πŸ’ͺπŸ™Œ

Community Gardening @ Thorlands

Sat 23 Apr 12:00 pm
Thor Lands Gardens , Elsinore House, Denmark Road , London , SE5 9EJ
Will allow the community garden to flourish and for local residents to enjoy the natural space and food that is grow there

Thor Lands Community Gardens in Camberwell offers a range of tasks for us to get involved with! There is an on-going project to convert this half an acre site into a thriving garden for the residents and locals to love. We meet at the "Walled Garden", which for newbies can be located exactly here using "what3words" - share.wished.rips. There is a variety of tasks from composting to weeding, sawing wood to cutting back brambles and raking leaves to planting trees - each week is different.

Health and Safety first: Please be advised that the task owner, Simon, cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons and would like us to be considerate, keep social distancing from him and to stay home if you develop a constant sneeze or cough.
