Crouch End Open Space (CREOS) Volunteering Day (August 2021)

Sun 15 Aug 11:00 am
Greenways, London, N8 8JJ
Our monthly woodland regeneration session with the CREOS volunteering team

Join us as we help the team at CREOS, a local conservation charity, maintain and improve a lovely green oasis in Crouch End.

CREOS looks after the meadows and wooded pathways of the Crouch End Open Space. GoodGym runners have been helping them maintain this beautiful patch of land for a while now, and the CREOS team always has lots for us to do.

We'll meet for an 11am start and aim to work for two hours. Stay as long as you can... but if you can make it to 1pm you'll get to enjoy a picnic* provided by the CREOS team. (Though this may be contingent on the weather!)

Here is a link to our start location- over at CREOS Meadow:

Painting the facade of the Phoenix Cinema.

Tue 27 Jul 19:00 pm
Phoenix Cinema, 52 High Road, London , N2 9PJ
Help reduce costs for this charity and improve its appeal.

Unfortunately the Phoenix cinema did not escape vandalism and graffiti during the pandemic. We have been asked if we can paint The facade of the Phoenix. They will supply all the equipment just bring your gloves dexterity and artistry. We might do a small warmup in cherry tree woods and may split the work force.

The Phoenix Cinema is an independent, not-for-profit cinema which is uniquely operated by a charitable trust on behalf of the people of North London.

Reiki in Highgate woods!

Tue 13 Jul
Report written by Paul Salman

Ten GoodGym members gathered at Highgate woods to help the Ranger Cindy with tidying up after the torrential rain yesterday. We gathered and introduced ourselves and stated our favourite colour. I think green won out as you might expect in woodland. We also met Hannah on her first GoodGym community mission give her a shout out! (click on the red link and give her some support) We then set about raking up sticks and detritus that had been washed from the forest onto the grass. We needed to do this so that the lawnmower was not wrecked when they came to cut the grass. When we had finished Cindy took us into the woodland to chat about forest management and in particular the recent infestation of The processional moth. Cindy then lead us into a clearing where we did a little yoga focusing on posture and breathing. We hope to be back again at the end of August or September. Thanks for coming getting active ,connected and doing some good!

On the path to glory

Wed 7 Jul
Report written by Charlie Linton

Ten GoodGymers came down to Westbury Banks Nature Reserve and along with the Reserve captain, Luke, we made a dream team of eleven. ⚽️

Charlie was substituted in place of Euclides who was playing away. Dave was back in action and we had new signing, Michael, who jumped right into the game.

Our GoodGym Haringey team were up against some weed control membrane, which needed laying along a path in the reserve. Our team started on top, tackling in some pegs to keep the membrane in place. It was looking like an easy win, but the membrane countered when it threatened to not stay down as we ran out of pegs! The response from our goodgymers was impressive though as upped our defence and started using rocks and stakes to hold down the membrane.

We also started digging a border next to the path, ready for lots of planting. And soon, the membrane will be completely covered with bark to make it a permanent path.

After our brilliant work, Nurjehan was keen to get home to watch some football game that was happening (I don’t think that has been talked about much...), so we didn’t go into extra time. We scored some last minute goals with the tools going to the back of the net (or back into the tool shed), and we headed home.

De-Ivy League

Tue 22 Jun
Report written by Daniel Mermelstein

Five goodgymmers converged on Stephens House and Gardens in Finchley to help the park maintain their road boundary. The metal fencing was being obscured by the growing foliage, most of it ivy spilling onto the pavement. It was a dry and warm evening and we worked at speed, cutting, clearing and bagging large amounts of greenery. We revealed bits of pavement that had not seen the light of day in years! We all agreed that it was very satisfying work and it certainly made for a much tidier boundary and gave the local residents more space to walk on. Helen, the park representative, was certainly incredibly pleased with the amount we managed to cut back. We nearly ran out of bags to put it in! Well done to everyone who attended. A fantastic team effort!
