Aaaand we're back. We've been requested to return to help with a variety of activities as the team begin the process of dismantling the warehouse.
Important: you do NOT need to commit to the whole six hours for this Community Mission. If you only pop down during your lunch hour, that will still be much appreciated. The 10-4 is the window of time during which you can attend, not the expectation from you.
Tasks may include:
- Helping with redistribution.
- Other tasks helping to return the warehouse to its pre-Crisis state.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:
On arrival, you need to complete the sign-in book to your right as you arrive in the loading bay.
...And grab a hi-vis vest.
And sanitise your hands.
Wait for Richard, our project coordinator, to come and collect you (Richard will be doing regular 'sweeps' of this area to come and collect GoodGymers, so sit tight and chat to fellow runners - keeping your distance from one another!).
We have to adhere to strict number caps on sign-up for health and safety,but Crisis DO need 12 GoodGymers. SO PLEASE UN-SIGN IF YOU CANNOT MAKE THIS ACTIVITY CLOSER TO THE TIME (if you un-sign, someone else waiting for a place on this activity then gets notified a place has become free).
Health and Safety
You need to bring your own gloves to wear.
You need to bring a face covering and when you're working in an indoor area, or a confined space with others outside, you will need to wear your face covering.
The warehouse gets chilly. Please wear plenty of layers.
Karen has already done 25 good deeds with GoodGym. Instead of doing anything else, they've used their run to go and help people that need their help; digging, lifting, scraping, clearing, planting and weeding. Stuff that makes this a better place to be.
GoodGym was asked back to Peckham Town FC this morning for the third in a successful summer series of tasks to help them out.
Welcome to all the new runners that joined us for the first time today. It was great to see so many new faces!
On arrival, we split into two teams. Most people stayed at the main clubhouse to dig some dirt and create the foundation of a new turnstyle and socially distanced bar area. Those of us that were more hesitant to volunteer for the tough work were transferred to the other clubhouse to paint the changing rooms.
The team were really happy with our work, and promised to sing the praises of GoodGym Southwark throughout the Borough. Keep an eye on Southwark News!
We were also invited to come back to watch a match. If you're keen I'll be in touch soon with more details.
Great work team.
15 excellent GoodGymmers chose a delightfully pleasant evening (a bit of a contrast from the storm last night, and the rain last week!) to return to Myatts. Our task was similar to last week - carry on weeding the two areas we'd been allocated 🌱
After splitting into two groups, we quickly got to work, aided by Tony and Taye who were able to confirm what were and weren't weeds when we weren't sure. It turns out that the recent rain showers weren't actually enough to make the soil soft so we got a good workout too 💪🏼 And no one got hit by any falling branches, as warned by some very helpful signs on some of the trees - win 🏆
After an hour of hard work, we'd made a noticeable difference (which is always a good thing) and were ready to part ways, after a team photo, obviously 📸
It was great to welcome Jade for her first good deed with GoodGym. We hope we'll see you again soon 😁
We'll be back at Myatts next Tuesday evening so do sign up if you'd like to join us 👍🏼
Thanks everyone, brilliant work 👏🏼
