Two’s company, weed the ground

Thu 16 Sep
Report written by Kim Parker

Three knocks and I'll let you in

I arrived slightly early and since I had the code to get into the garden, I popped in to see what we had to tackle this evening whilst also letting Oli know the secret password to get in!

We began by clearing the weeds between the paving stones and then moved onto the flower beds. We managed to rescue a couple of plants in each that hadn't been overtaken by weeds!

After a quick sweep of the paving stones, piling all the weeds in the corner and clearing a final bit of rubbish, it was job done in 32 minutes.

Help to create a wildflower meadow at St Mary's Church

Sat 16 Oct 10:30 am
Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, 346 Lewisham High St, London, SE13 6LE
Improve the space for the local community

We are delighted to be helping our friends at St Mary's Church in Lewisham/Ladywell again, some of you may remember when we painted the railings leading up to the church and around the therapeutic garden. This time we're going to be helping create a wildflower meadow.

The task this week will involve preparing the ground for wildflower meadow and possibly also plant some bulbs and cowslips.

Can you help?

Postering here, postering there

Mon 13 Sep
Report written by Kim Parker

We started off the evening with a lot of posters and ended the evening with only a couple

I was skeptical of how many posters we would be able to put up and I did set a target of 1. We exceeded that!!

Our route took us through Lewisham, Brockley, Crofton Park, Ladywell and back through Lewisham. we might've lost a couple of people for the odd minute but we arrived back at Glass Mill in the group we started in.

Fantastic work everyone. We definitely spread the word about the work Food2You do.

Next week we are off to our favourite - Seniors!!

Help to create a forest school area at St Mary's Primary School

Mon 18 Oct 18:45 pm
Glass Mill Leisure Centre, 41 Loampit Vale, Lewisham, SE13 7FT
Improve this abandoned/unloved space

NEW TASK ALERT

Welcome to GoodGym Lewisham! We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every Monday evening to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations in our area.

The Task

We are back to St Mary's this week and we'll be clearing the area and digging up bramble roots, pulling up self seeded sycamore and cutting back established plants.

The Run

GoodGym is for everyone! We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together, so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is. The run this week will be around 4km in total.

The Essentials

We meet at Glass Mill Leisure Centre at 6.45pm, so a short walk from Lewisham Station. We have access to lockers and changing facilities, so you could easily drop in on your way home (bring a pound coin or padlock if you want to use the lockers). Look out for the red t-shirts, we're very friendly!

NEW TASK ALERT

Welcome to GoodGym Lewisham! We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every Monday evening to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations in our area.

The Task

We have a brand new task this week! We will be heading to St Mary's Primary School to help clear the area that will eventually become a forest school. It will be a great opportunity to be involved in a project from the start and see the difference we can make in an unloved and abandoned space. For the first visit, we'll be clearing the area and digging up bramble roots, pulling up self seeded sycamore and cutting back established plants.

The Run

GoodGym is for everyone! We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together, so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is. The run this week will be around 4km in total.
