Wassail!

Fri 18 Feb 16:00 pm
Alara Wholefoods, 110-112 Camley St, London, N1C 4PF
Alara Wassail party helpers needed!

Alara will once again be hosting the annual Wassail Party for the community on Friday 8th February.

We’ll need runners to help with the set up from 4 and help to pack down at the end after 8pm

The event is open to the public from 5pm. Good Gym Camden will have a stall to help promote and get new runners to sign up.

Please drop in the comments times your available to help out.

More about the event…

Wassailing is the ancient tradition whereby townships would awake the apple trees and scare away evil spirits, ensuring a good harvest of fruit for the coming year.

Throughout the night you'll have the opportunity to take part in wassails of our very own Camley Street orchard, as led by the founders.

Much like that of previous Wassail and Harvest Parties, February's event will have kid-friendly activities, a bake-off, live music, a bonfire and of course, an organic food buffet - all entirely free of charge!

Crouch End Open Space (CREOS) Volunteering Day (February 2022)

Sun 20 Feb 11:00 am
Hanley Tennis Club Car Park, Greenways,, London, N8 8JJ
Our monthly woodland regeneration session with the CREOS volunteering team

Join us as we help the team at CREOS, a local conservation charity, maintain and improve a lovely green oasis in Crouch End.

CREOS looks after the meadows and wooded pathways of the Crouch End Open Space. GoodGym runners have been helping them maintain this beautiful patch of land for a while now, and the CREOS team always has lots for us to do.

This month, the CREOS team are planning on playing down a load of hoggin (a mix of hardy sand, clay and gravel aggregate) for new paths along the forest walking routes. It will be a big job, so we can use as many hands as possible!

A mix of tasks will be available, involving classic wheelbarrowing and shoveling workouts, but also forest path maintenance. Less physical tasks are also on offer.

We'll meet for an 11am start and aim to work for two hours. Stay as long as you can... but if you can make it to 1pm you'll get to enjoy a picnic* provided by the CREOS team. (Though this may be contingent on the weather!)

During the Winter months, we will be meeting at the Hanley Tennis Court Car Park, accessible via the Green Ways walk from Wood Vale.

No of fence but you need to protect the bluebells.

Sun 16 Jan
Report written by Paul Salman

Fourteen magnificent GoodGym members came together in HighGate Woods to help the Ranger with Forest fencing. It was a lovely crisp winters morning as we gathered to listen to Cindy explain what we were doing. Quite simply we were repairing forest fences to protect the bluebells for the spring. We set to work and Cindy seemed very impressed at how quickly we got The job done so we had time for a tour of the forest. This included information on the history, forest management, and wildlife. thank you Cindy! Hope you enjoyed the session and don’t forget to give a cheer to the people you worked with on the GoodGym website. in particular give your support and a cheer to Henna Dorota on their first community mission.

Some of us went for a coffee others went on to another community mission in Crouch end! Well done all!

We gather again on Tuesday evening at the phoenix cinema 7 pm to help A forest school one kilometre away.

Thanks for coming and making a difference in your local Community.

YoGa tta start the new year well!

Tue 4 Jan
Report written by Paul Salman

A magnificent seven Goodgym Members joined online to do some yoga for the New Year.

https://www.goodgym.org/v3/areas/barnet

I read this recently and thought it worth sharing..

Every year—this year right in front of you—can be the most important year of your life. The one where you become your best, most creative, most centered, most self-reliant , most selfless, and resilient self. But you have to be willing to step into difficulty. Because, like lifting weights, growth can’t happen without some resistance or… dealing with difficult people and situations or getting breathless when running … or like finding that edge between effort and relaxation in your yoga practice.

Keep moving and a..

Happy new year!

Christmas CREOS! Ho Ho Hoggin!

Sun 19 Dec
Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

Last Sunday, our local Goodgym crew joined the resident volunteers of Crouch End Open Space (aka CREOS) with their continued footpath maintenance project between Highgate Woods, Crouch End and Muswell Hill.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Glenys Law and the team in the Hanley Tennis Club car park, and got straight to work on transporting wheel barrows full of hoggin (an organic mix of building aggregate and sand) along the woodland paths. John and Karen stayed at the entrance of Queen's Wood at the start of the session, raking up leaves and green undergrowth off the pathways. Richard and Simon unloaded the hoggin in position, before walking the 0.3 km back to the car park.

We soon learned not to over load the wheel barrows, as traversing steps and muddy slopes can be tricky! The foot paths were also open to the public, so we had to be aware of hikers, runners and curious dogs on route.

The CREOS volunteers were absolutely thrilled with the progress we made on this long term project, and have plans on inviting us back again in early January. Watch this space!
