Greenwich

More2 do for the mayor!

Tue 20 Apr
Report written by Darryl Chamberlain

Blue skies and big smiles for a lunchtime mission in east Greenwich, and a pleasure to welcome Leo from GG Tower Hamlets and Jenny from GG Lambeth to join Alex and Darryl in giving the outside areas at More2Nurseries a little spruce-up. They've got the mayor of Greenwich popping in for a visit tomorrow, so it was a good idea to get the place looking its best.

There was weeding and planting to be done at the front, which Leo and Jenny quickly got stuck into. Alex took charge of sweeping the play area at the back, while Darryl wielded a paintbrush to turn a shelf a fetching shade of green. Plus there was some jet washing action too. Everything goes better with a jet washer.

More2Nurseries is a group run favourite (not least because of its pet snail, Sid) so it'll be good to return there en masse soon. For now, though, it was a treat to see some familiar faces again and get some work done in the sun.

Flex and the City

Mon 19 Apr
Report written by Laura Williams

Back together again...

A lovely sized group headed to our favourite Meath Gardens this evening for our Monday night fitness session.

We arrived in dribs and drabs: some came straight to Meath; others arrived from our Monday night task at Hollybush, thanks to fabulous task-and-run-leading by Leo.

Show us your moves

Tonight's movement menu consisted of a couple of running drills, to work on hip drive and hip mobility; some standing balance-and-core moves, before a tough little lower body/upper body/core circuit.

We finished with our favourite grey-and-hare relay-esque speed game before some fiddly-but-effective stretches.

Pat on the back.

Well done to everyone who showed up and ploughed through all this content. It's lovely to learn how to be together in a group once again, with a little small talk and a lot of strength work.

Shout outs tonight to Joanna, our wonderful Task Owner from favourite Meath Gardens who we saw on her way home! And who took some fab aerial pics of us working out.

...While shout-out of the night goes to Leo, who didn't miss a beat when picking up our first group run baton, taking both the good-sized team to Hollybush, navigating a picturesque canal run, all before devouring 45 mins of fiery fitness moves.

Thanks for a lovely evening, everyone. Until next week.

The half side of the moon

Mon 19 Apr
Report written by Leo

It was a beautiful Monday evening as the bumper group of Tower Hamlets and neighbouring friends headed back to Hollybush Gardens, a recent staple for Monday night tasks.

We were back in the suitably named Rocky Park area of the estate which whilst stunning is a little tucked away and likely accounted for the late arrival of a few of the team, but a rolling start was ideal as we split into two groups of 6 to work on two separate flower beds to continue our "extreme weeding" and general consensus was that we did an extremely good job of it.

Tools were doled out, and preference of beds was decided with a strong inclination for those here last week to pick the same flower bed as there was certainly a sense of unfinished business and the atmosphere was jovial as we tackled the weeding with gusto and made superb progress.

John, Jennifer, Rohan, Lieke and I tackled the smaller of the two beds with Simon nearby as an exceptional lone ranger single-handedly beautifying two of the round beds 🌱

The other bed was staffed with the tremendous trio of Becky's alongside Hackney hero Alex, joyous Jo, amazing Aziz and Emma who was exceptional despite this only being her 5th task 👏

Today's pun is inspired my task owner Margaret's favourite tool, the Half Moon which Aziz was putting to great use prettifying the edges of the beds and doing a much better job of it than I was, which could have been due to him having the superior stainless steel version but way more likely that it's because he's just a better gardener than I am! Margaret's top tip to both of us was the make sure the Half Moon is the right way around to increase the leverage.

We wrapped up after a fun, frenzied hour for a group picture before roughly half of us headed off for a run in the direction of Meath Gardens for Laura's incredible Monday workout in the park. Massive thanks to Becky for being a splendid pace setter as we headed north to the canal to then wend our way down to the resplendent Meath Gardens for a perfect post-task workout.

sofa, so good

Sun 18 Apr
Report written by Frances Collier-Wright

A classic title for a classic mission - removing the second sofa to make more space in the sitting room for a riser-recliner chair. Fortunately, despite a bit of worried discussion about the narrow windiness of the staircase, the sofa was relatively small, so it was easy to slide it out of the flat and down to the bins for collection. We were all wrapped up in 20 minutes and Ms E's son was very grateful.

Double duvet

Fri 16 Apr
Report written by Leo

I nipped out at lunchtime today to return to a familiar neighbourhood having helped out Ms D last month.

Today was a very similar drill where she had 8 bags of various bedding, mostly duvet covers and some clothes that needed to be dropped off at the clothes bank just down the road from her house. The bags were quite unwieldy so I decided to tackle it all in two trips which made for a nice excursion in the lunchtime sunshine ☀️
