No of fence but you need to protect the bluebells.

Sun 16 Jan
Report written by Paul Salman

Fourteen magnificent GoodGym members came together in HighGate Woods to help the Ranger with Forest fencing. It was a lovely crisp winters morning as we gathered to listen to Cindy explain what we were doing. Quite simply we were repairing forest fences to protect the bluebells for the spring. We set to work and Cindy seemed very impressed at how quickly we got The job done so we had time for a tour of the forest. This included information on the history, forest management, and wildlife. thank you Cindy! Hope you enjoyed the session and don’t forget to give a cheer to the people you worked with on the GoodGym website. in particular give your support and a cheer to Henna Dorota on their first community mission.

Some of us went for a coffee others went on to another community mission in Crouch end! Well done all!

We gather again on Tuesday evening at the phoenix cinema 7 pm to help A forest school one kilometre away.

Thanks for coming and making a difference in your local Community.

Crouch End Open Space (CREOS) Volunteering Day (January 2022)

Sun 16 Jan

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.

This month, the CREOS team are planning on playing down a load of hoggin (a mix of hardy sand, clay and gravel aggregate) for new paths along the forest walking routes. It will be a big job, so we can use as many hands as possible!

A mix of tasks will be available, involving classic wheelbarrowing and shoveling workouts, but also forest path maintenance. Less physical tasks are also on offer.

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!)

During the Winter months, we will be meeting at the Hanley Tennis Court Car Park, accessible via the Green Ways walk from Wood Vale.
