Return of the (Wild) Cat, You Know That We'll Be Back

Sat 5 Dec
Report written by Caireen McGinn

On a lovely bright December morning, 4 volunteers arrived at one of Good Gym Lewisham's favourite tasks to continue where we left off in October. Over lockdown #2, lot has been done by other volunteers to continue the work that Good Gym started by clearing a huge space for an outdoor classroom that is to be installed in January. We are so nearly finished and it is utterly amazing what has been achieved with a few weedbashers, some forks and spades, and a lot of hard work and determination! We also have an 'exciting' new tool to use...the legendary Rootslayer! Which does what is says on the tin. It's so nice to be back!

All aboard the Rootmaster to Catford!

Sat 31 Oct
Report written by Adele Prince

On an incredibly wet Saturday in Catford, 10 of GoodGym's most dedicated helpers showed some roots who's boss.

Ah, what a treat to be back at the helm and what a treat to welcome some new visitors to Lewisham! A big welcome and Lewisham Love to Sarah, who was tackling her very first good deed - what a day to debut! A shout-out must also go to Lewis, who cycled all the way from Dartford and Alex who pedalled over from Tower Hamlets. Blimey!

No time was wasted in getting stuck in, with Oli kindly giving me some top tips on which tools work best (he's done this a few times now!). We had little teams working across the space, some digging up brambles, some raking, Louie weed-bashing and some very determined root-digging from Hector, Edward and Linda - one tree stump wasn't enough, so they kept moving on to bigger and bigger challenges!

You can see from the photos that the weather changed quite quickly, with rain coming down in buckets and the ground under our feet resembling the trenches. This didn't dampen everyone's spirit though, with a real focus towards the finish line, with whole areas cleared and very satisfied volunteers ready to grab hot drinks and get dry.

Well done everyone, this hard work will take the space that little bit closer to being an outdoor classroom. We look forward to welcoming our visitors back any time, keep an eye out for upcoming tasks!

The Great E(eyore)-scape

Sun 18 Oct
Report written by Anna B

GoodGym hit the farm again this afternoon for some more poo-shovelling and weed removing fun.

Bex had four different tasks for us. Lenka and Lorna hit the goat pen to shovel their poo and get some goat cuddles.

Mayuko and Richard got the tough job of breaking up the compost. Bex was blown away by what they got done.

Louie and I jumped on the muck heap to fill up bags of manure to be sold to the public. We were told that last time GoodGym managed 12 bags, so we were determined to beat the record. 13 bags down and we called it a day!

Sam, Isabelle, Alex, Sree and Rosie went to the donkey field to continue what we started a couple of weeks ago, and clear the nettles which are too nutritious for the donkeys to eat and are giving them colic. There was added excitement today as the donkeys and the shetland pony joined them in the field.

I had a great view of everyone working away across the farm from the top of the muck heap. This was rewarded with a bit of excitement when the donkeys escaped the field and started rampaging through the allotments! It was all very dramatic. The livestock team were called over from the other side of the farm and Louie, Richard and Mayuko had to make a donkey barrier to stop them getting further. Luckily they were eventually recaptured, and with only a few damaged squashes and nibbled chard as collateral damage.

After a couple of hours solid graft, some goat selfies and admiration of the piglets, we wound down for the day. Thanks for all your hard work!
