Bell

Wed 3 Aug
Report written by Paul Salman

This is a regular event for Goodgym Barnet helping close the Gardens of Stephens house every Wednesday. Everybody who’s done it has seemed to enjoy chatting to staff and the public. I simply collected the bell from the house and rang around the Gardens. Simples! I was helped by a local dog walker. Thank you Andrew!

Help close a charity park

Wed 3 Aug 17:40 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 6pm. 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 6pm. 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.

Tree - mendous tag running

Tue 2 Aug
Report written by Paul Salman

Three of us met at the Phoenix Cinema to make the short walk and run to Coldfall Woods and its recreational ground to help with weeding. Ivana wanted to walk so we did alternate tag running ( one of us running off and back ) this allowed us to keep company with Ivana. Two others tried to meet us at the venue. Unfortunately Kirsten never found us despite using a WhatsApp tracker. (thanks for trying look forward to catching up soon!) Richard did join us and we met up with Linda who gave us tools to start our work. We were looking to clear the base of the tree of weeds and uncover the watering pipes. We then had the jolly task of throwing the bags of weeds over into the compound. we headed back and three of us had some refreshments at the Phoenix Cinema on its glorious balcony! thanks for coming running and doing some good!

It’s a litter-ary world

Sun 31 Jul
Report written by Paul Salman

Goodgym Members looked to clean up their local spaces by litter picking.

Litter picking sends a great message, you’ll inspire many others to get out there and do the same.

It won’t just be people who live locally to where you choose to litter pick, it will be the passers by, those who see you as they drive by in their cars, the people you talk to about it, anyone that see’s the images you post on social media.

it’s a litter ridden world thanks for getting out there and helping out!

Multi tasking at the Tiny Forest

Sun 31 Jul
Report written by Daniel Mermelstein

Goodgym runners and locals of all ages converged on the Mutton Brook Tiny Forest on a mission to water the thirsty trees planted only last February. The weather has been so dry, and the young trees need some help. We carried buckets of water from the nearby brook and gave all 600 trees a much needed drink! Many hands make light work, so while some were watering, others did some litter picking and some did some weeding as well! So it was a very efficient mission and the Tiny Forest got lots of TLC! Thank you to everyone who came, especially the younger volunteers who made a huge difference!

Interested or able to help run a table at Eco Show and Tell in Copthall.

Fri 16 Sep 10:30 am
Barnet Copthall Leisure Centre (Champions Way, London, NW4 1PX
Encourage sustainable activities

Goodgym barnet is looking to support this community ‘Eco Show and tell’ event.

What’s the idea? There are so many things we can do to mitigate climate change. But it can be daunting to try new products and attempt to change habits. Those of us who have adopted even a couple of sustainable habits have learned new knowledge that if shared, will inspire confidence in others. There will be a number of tables with people interested to share their knowledge.

We think Goodgym have something to offer.

We need GoodGym members to man a table to talk about our activities and OR just come along to find out more about this event. Please come along even if you can only stay for a little while. Please sign up and leave a comment on how long you can stay so other people can join you.

Goodgym looks to promote sustainable activities in our community.

We do this by physically supporting local green spaces. Building fitness and resilience in our members. Encouraging active travel. Cycling walking, running. Discover and engage with our local environment and its communities.

Check out our reports https://www.goodgym.org/areas/barnet/reports

What’s my motivation? If we physically engage with our environment (and its communities) studies show it improves our sense of well being and connection. Active travel improves our health and of the environment.
