Blown away

Sat 6 Aug
Report written by Monika Kohlmaier

We were 4 little busy bees, allocated various tasks at the sea scouts.

Susannah did a batch of weeding and enjoyed listening to the tunes being played at the finish line of the Hermes half/full marathon, which was located by the sea scouts driveway.

Jack walked from Putney to the mission and was helping putting up shelves.

Chris and Monika made good use of the leaf blower and cleared the leaves on the back driveway. We did our best to avoid to cover the walkers and marathon runners from dust clouds!

We will be back for more in September to help the sea scouts with tasks.

Chipping away

Sat 30 Jul
Report written by Monika Kohlmaier

We were assigned various tasks for the morning. First we moved a few benches and then chipped away at a mound of wood chippings, which we distributed along the pathways and under the trees. And then on we went to move some bonfire wood from one side of the grounds to the other side, getting our step count in. As the scouts are now on their summer holiday break, we will be back for some more tasks soon.

Refreshing the Garden at St Christophers Childrens home

Mon 22 Aug 18:45 pm
Tap Tavern, Princes Street, Richmond, TW9 1ED
Making the garden accessible, beautiful and well maintained for the children in their care

St Christopher’s vision is for every child and young person to be safe, loved & happy, to achieve their potential and have a bright future. Their mission is to create brighter futures for children and young people. They do this by providing fostering, residential and support services where children and young people can feel safe and cared for.

We've recently returned back to St Christophers after to the pandemic and we'll be starting by tackling their garden for them. Tasks will vary from mowing, cutting back bushes, tidying and various gardening related tasks. This will be a regular monthly visit now for the foreseeable.

Starting at The Tap Tavern at 18:45, we will be leading a circa 2km run to St Christophers.

For those that need it, The Tap Tavern have kindly agreed to let us use their upstairs venue (DJKs) as a secure locked area for bag drops every Monday evening.

We will be leading the run back to The Tap Tavern after the mission.

Tools will be provided but please wear clothes you're happy to garden in and if you can bring your own gloves, that would be ideal.

For those that can't join us on the group run there, the meeting point is: St Christophers, 11 Rosslyn Road, Twickenham, TW1 2AR

Supporting the local Sea Scouts with various projects at their new HQ!

Sat 6 Aug 10:00 am
Petersham & Ham Sea Scouts, Douglas House Meadow, , Richmond,, TW10 7AH
After a ten year dream to build a new HQ the local Sea Scouts need some support getting final things done

Petersham and Ham Sea Scouts are one of the oldest scout troops still in existence. They can trace their roots back to 1908 and have been in continuous operation since then. Many past Sea Scouts have gone onto careers on the water and into competitive canoeing and kayaking. They are a mixed troop of boys and girls and aim to be inclusive and accessible to all children wanting to be a sea scout.

We've helped the local Sea Scouts with a lot of work over the past year to get their grounds to where they want them. It's not far off now and today we will be doing all things wood. Collecting firewood, spreading woodchips, building wooden frames

We'll be meeting at Petersham and Ham Sea Scouts HQ, Douglas House Meadow, Richmond, TW10 7AH at 10am.

Please bring your own gloves if you can. Tools will be provided.

Any support will be greatly appreciated by all involved!

Swept up in the moment!

Mon 25 Jul
Report written by Liz
She/her

Six runners met at the Tap Tavern on a warm July evening where Jack led a steady 3km run to Cecil Court Care Home in Kew where three more GoodGymers met to join in the task.

Armed with brooms, gardening gloves, rakes and willingness, they tidied up the lovely gardens in the grounds of the care home. Between sweeping, weeding, dead-heading and Anita's expert pruning of the rose arch, we gave the area a thorough tidy. Backing music came from Cathy's experiments with the outdoor sensory music equipment, the chatter of GoodGymers at work and the squeals of sudden suprise from Anita and Liz after being sprayed by a rogue hose!

Those that wished to made the 3km back to the Tap Tavern and headed off to find rehydration in various corners of Richmond!

Waterside Squad

Mon 11 Jul
Report written by Sam Jones

With heatwave temperatures of 30C+ earlier in the afternoon, GoodGym Richmond’s two adopted flower beds by the River Thames in Richmond were looking very sun blasted and parched. The focus of tonight’s mission was urgent watering.

Jack led a Group Run from The Tap Tavern leading ‘Rehydration Squad’ Susan, Jack, Sam, JP and Monika who were joined by Anita, Ken, Lucy and Salwa at The Arcade for a very productive hour of watering, weeding, watering, raking, watering, dead-heading, watering, turning the compost heap, watering, removing spent poppies, watering, litter picking and more watering.

With water water everywhere we were glad of a drop to drink at the end, heading to The White Cross on the Richmond Riverside for our monthly GoodGym Richmond Social where we were joined by other GG runners old and new. Spilling out of the pub onto the Thames Path, it was an idyllic sunset spot .

Double Mission Ribbons to Ken and Lucy who spent time watering the new hedgerow at Chitty Hole on the edge of Petersham Meadow before joining the Group Mission in Buccleuch Gardens. And good news/bad news from Area Activator Sam who has received a promotion (hurrah) and will have to step down from his Richmond AA role (boo) but will be replaced by his wife and fellow runner Liz (hurrah).

Supporting Richmond Furniture Scheme - regular monthly task

Sat 20 Aug 10:15 am
1A Fortescue Avenue , Twickenham , TW2 5LS
Supporting Poverty, Environment and Unemployment in the borough of Richmond

Richmond Furniture Scheme are a local furniture recycling charity based in the borough of Richmond. Their philosophy is to help those in need in the community to access quality furniture at a reasonable price. They welcome donations of furniture that you no longer need and also hope that you will want to come and browse in their showroom. Additionally, in support of their sustainable objectives, RFS run a workshop called Carousel where they give new life to once-loved furniture by repairing and up-cycling selected pieces. Their objectives are supporting Poverty, Environment and Unemployment.

We've started a regular partnership with RFS whereby we will help them one Saturday every month. Tasks will vary but will involve things such as piecing together bedframes with no instructions, repairing or painting furniture and upcycling various objects. This should definitely be a fun one!

Any support will be greatly appreciated by all involved!

First timers are more than welcome and this is a great task to see what we are all about!

Tools will be provided. If you're happy to be involved with painting, you may want to wear clothes/trainers that you don't mind getting tainted with a bit of paint!

Meeting point is at 1A Fortescue Avenue, Twickenham, TW2 5LS. We can be found in Fortescue Avenue, a cul-de-sac, off Turner Avenue between Fielding Avenue and Twining Avenue on the Staines Road and Sixth Cross Road. Buses: 490, H22, 110, 267, 281, R70. Train stations: Fulwell, Twickenham (connect by bus 267 and 281)
