What’s the story morning glory 📚🌱

Sat 25 Jun
Report written by Sarah Lee

After an early morning of parkrun activity at both Bexley and Dartford parkruns, several Goodgymers met at the Erith Exchange ready to tackle the gardens. Upon arrival I was extremely jealous of the greenhouse with the massive tomato plants growing inside! 🍅

We met with Louis, who gave us tasks straight away, watering and fertilising the plants as well as weeding and planting in other areas.

✂️✂️✂️

With all the gear and not much idea, we were guided by Louis who helped point out the weeds and and the best place for planting the seedlings. There were a mixture of nasturtiums, climbing beans and morning glory which were planted along the fences with the hope that they will climb and bloom.

After all the hard work we couldn’t leave with out visiting the Bookshop cafe for a lovely brunch and coffee! ☕️

Gardening at Gwendwr Gardens

Tue 28 Jun 19:00 pm
Gwendwr Gardens, Gwendwr Road, London, W14 9BG
Maintaining a green space for all to enjoy

We'll be at Gwendwr Gardens this tuesday, helping out John and the other volunteers with a variety of tasks to keep the park a lovely area for all to enjoy!

Please remember to bring gloves to the mission as it is likely to get dirty and have some water and sunscreen on you as we'll be outside and at this time of year it can be easy to get dehyrdrated and burnt without realising!

If we have time, we may do a spot of fitness afterwards over at Brook Green.

Mission starts at 7:00pm and I'll be leading a short 1-2km run from Brook Green at 6:30pm down to Gwendwr if others would like to join.

Thanks all, see you there!

Improve the condition of the common

We're going to help out the Friends of Woolwich Common who work to protect this beautiful open space and keep it clear from litter.

They'll have plenty of bags and pickers so just bring some gloves with you. If you register to be an Environmental Champion at waste.advisors@royalgreenwich.gov.uk you can also get your own pickers from the council.

We'll meet opposite the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on the common at 11am. This will be a recurring task on the last Sunday of each month to keep the common in tip top condition! The Friends of group will give you a good welcome. Make sure you take some snaps and nominate someone to write the run report!

Report written by Jonathan

Short and sweet at Hammersmith TRAID, powering through the rails to pack up the clothes and hangers ready for next month's charity load.

As always, the hunt was on for the special treats in the depths, including several tutus and a shirt that both Jonathan and Beth posed with.

Always a fun mission, can't wait to be back!

Goodgym Parkrun on Tour (North London Edition): Hampstead Heath Parkrun

Sat 9 Jul 08:45 am
Hampstead Heath parkrun, East Heath Street, London, NW3 1NT
Have a 5k run with other Goodgymmers then socialise afterwards

Every second Saturday of the month, lets check out a different parkrun in North London as a chance to meet new people and experience new places! (+ try new coffee spots!)

My proposed schedule is below but let me know if there are any people out there would like to try.

July 9th - Hampstead Heath

August 13th – Finsbury Park

September 10th – Fulham Palace

October 8th –Mile End

We'll meet at the start line of the event 10-15 minutes before hand to warm up and motivate one another. Then once were all finished we'll snap a sick group photo before taking in the local hot beverages on offer (whatever takes your fancy the most!).

What are parkruns?

Parkruns are free, weekly, community events all around the world. Saturday morning events are 5k and take place in parks and open spaces. You can run, walk or volunteer at parkruns. You can even take your dog (if you have one) along! If you have never run a parkrun before, they are a great way to get into running in a welcoming and inclusive environment. Remember, it's FREE, but you can register here to keep a profile (number of parkruns you do, times, etc.). You can register by going to parkrun.org.uk
