Easy-going and friendly, I have been running on a regular basis for the last 8 years, mainly running at parkrun.

Saving & shifting plants from Stompie Garden - The Tank is gone!!

Sat 15 Jan 14:30 pm
Stompie Garden, 105 Page's Walk, London, SE1 4HD
Help save the plants as site needs to be cleared out!


We need 8-10 GoodGymers to save the plants at Stompie Gardens after the infamous Stompie Tank was taken away for "renovations" - the story can be read here. The owner of the site has told our GoodGym contact, Peter, that the site needs to be cleared, which means we will need to save the plants and give them a new home.

We will meet at Stompie Gardens for 14:30 to dig the plants out and then transport them by trolleys and wheelbarrows (10-15 minute walk) to the Kipling Estate where the plants will be planted (at least the big ones and as much as we can get done).

Massive thank you if you could spare your Saturday afternoon to help out (if you can)!

I used to hate moss but it’s growing on me

Tue 11 Jan
Report written by Charlotte Emms

A dream team of runners came together for the first Lambeth group run of 2022 🥳

We were without our usual AA, Yianny, but that didn’t stop us! Sam, the AA for Southwark, got us warmed up before we split into two groups (a direct route and a very slightly longer route) to head to Jubilee Primary School.

Once there, we were briefed on what needed doing - a bit of feng shui for the area next to the bins and removing weeds and excess moss from the sides of the car park.

We got that done in no time at all so Chi stepped in to give us a quick workout 🏋️‍♀️ including various squat jumps, lunges, tricep dips, press ups and wall sits.

Once our legs were about ready to turn into jelly, we had a group photo in the playground and headed back to base for a warm down.

What a way to start the year! Nice one everyone 💪
