Once again we were back to support Chiswick School with some weeding of the school allotment. A good size group of GoodGym'ers upped tools and set to work!
We cleared a number of beds for the school gardening club; ready to be lain with cardboard and straw/manure/compost. An experimental approach to keep down the weeds.
For our troubles we even got the odd tomato ... admittedly 2 small cherry tomatoes does not go far between 13 of us.
We look forward to being back and helping out again!
Afghanistan and Central Asian Association volunteers have been busy collecting and organising urgent clothing donations for Afghanistan, but they desperately need helping sorting it and have asked for our help. The official start is 11 am, but feel free to turn up when you can for as long as you can manage until 6pm.
Please just arrive and ask for Rose or Sheekeba when you get there.
A HUGE number of Goodgymers rose to the challenge of completing a 10K over the weekend with the aim of becoming world record holders, watch out Mo Farrah!
We will know soon whether the challenge of setting the record for the most people running a virtual 10K run in 2021! Fingers crossed!!
If nothing else us Goodgymers seem to have had a fabulous time. I've very much enjoyed the pictures of ice-creams, beautiful views and gorgeous smiling faces which have been popping up in my inbox.
Well done everyone!
We're back off to Cultivate London to lend a hand at this charity which repurposes underused land in London to grow plants and train young people.
We're back at Turnham Green - a lovely public space that we have been helping maintain and make even more beautiful over the years.
We'll be lending a hand with the thistle problem, among other jobs, and Jan will be there to oversee and instruct.
Do bring your own gloves if you have them.
