Stretching it out till Dawn

Thu 20 Jan
Report written by Paul Salman

A few Goodgym members came together to do some early morning yoga to start the day in the right way.

yoga talk

Making the practice of yoga a habit each morning allows the body to get into the habit of switching off the sympathetic ‘fight or flight’ stress response, and instead able to finally tap into the healing benefits of the parasympathetic nervous system – increasing the health of both body and mind immensely.

Report written by Paul Salman

Two Goodgym Member’s came together to help close Stephen’s house and Gardens. The park is run by a charity and relies on volunteers to keep costs down and help staff. We walked around the lovely 10 acre Park ringing the bell asking people to leave by 4 pm. I started ringing the bell and Emma took over to finish It sounds like good fun … and it was! Well done to Emma who has travelled along way to hear the Bells.

Report written by Paul Salman

I took my lunch hour to collect a prescription and drop it off to Mrs S who’s been isolating for nearly 2 years. We had a nice chat at the door step. She doesn't get many opportunities to talk. Unfortunately her family are very far away in the north of England. I managed to do the whole trip on my bike within 40 minutes.

Help close a charity park

Wed 19 Jan 15:30 pm
Stephens House & Gardens, 17 East End Road, Finchley, London , N3 3QE
help keep costs down for charity park

Stephens House and Garden need someone to assist with closing the park at 4pm. This will involve 20 minutes of work (with the park  gardener Josh) advising the public that the park is closing. Somebody local or if someone wants a one off mission to see a beautiful park in Barnet. Once the grounds of a wealthy Victorian family now held in trust for the people of Finchley. This a charity 'pocket park' (not council) and relies on volunteers and self generated income) Come to main house (opposite a zebra crossing Eastend Road N3) and ask for the Steward and he will give you the bell. You then just need to go around the park ringing the bell and telling people the closing time. You may not see the gardener. Please return the bell before 4pm. Max 2 people required. Why not arrive early and do a few laps around the park? Invite a GG friend to join you? Cafe and toilets on site.

Goodgym Barnet gathered at the Phoenix Cinema to run the short distance to Martin primary school East Finchley. We met John who provided the tools and instructions to spread woodchip and bark over the forest school floor using spades , wheelbarrows and rakes. We proceeded to Whittle down an enormous pile of wood chip. (Kirsten brought her dog who provided the bark ). To my astonishment we managed to get it completed well before Time.

Tue 25 Jan 18:45 pm
Phoenix Cinema, 52 High Road, London , N2 9PJ
Help preserve a historic centre for the community

Welcome to GoodGym Barnet! We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every week to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects in our area.

We will be flyering for the Phoenix cinema helping them to keep their costs down and keeping us fit. This is potentially good for both walkers and runners alike.

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and it is often possible to walk to the task if you would prefer. We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is.

Come and have a drink after the mission run at the Phoenix café.

A good day so-fa

Sun 16 Jan
Report written by Sam Chapman

Mrs P needed a sofa moving into another room to make space for a hospital bed being delivered to make her comfortable in her home.

Once directed by her husband, Paul and myself made light work of the task, as hurrah! the sofa legs came off to make it easy to fit through the doors. Once confirmed all was well, everyone was happy and off we went into the sunny afternoon. 😀
