Help transform New Malden Girl Guides HQ into a wildlife wonderland!

Mon 6 Jun 18:45 pm
Marion Hill House, Girl Guide HQ, Tadworth Avenue, New Malden, KT3 6DJ
Create spaces to introduce log piles and specialist habitats, and better spots for Guides & Brownies playing Hide & Seek!

The HQ of New Malden Girl Guides, Marion Hill Hall, has a beautiful garden space which their leaders want to improve. Emma is the task owner and will meet us onsite with a second helper, Tim. Jassy has the gate code and a key to gain access if Emma is delayed arriving At the moment there are nettles and brambles under the trees, but with a bit of GoodGym effort we want to cut the undergrowth back and make the space more accessible for the girls to explore. Once the cutting back is done the plans are to introduce dead wood and bug hotels etc. to encourage wildlife in a way that the girls can observe and interact with. Please bring your own gloves, and tools will be provided at the site.

This will be the first task of hopefully many more so let's get out there and show the Guides the power of GoodGym!

Project Wall Paint for WelCare - 2nd attempt!

Tue 28 Jun 18:45 pm
Quaker Centre, Fairfield East, Kingston Upon Thames, KT1 2PT
Improve the garden area for our families

Paint brushes at the ready! WelCare have asked us to paint the outbuilding in the back garden. We tried to paint it before but heavy rain ruined our plans. Hopefully June will be full of sunshine.

If we have enough volunteers then we can also help tidy up the paths and get rid of any weeds.

Task owner Aruna will meet you there with the tools needed for the job and her number is 07986 286903. Don't forget your gardening gloves - and wear old clothes that you don't mind getting paint on!

Meet at the Quaker Centre and for a 3km run to get to the task and a 2km run back.

Rainy Tuesday changes our plans...

Tue 24 May
Report written by Rachel White

The heavens opened today and when it rained it was torrential. Plans of painting the Welcare outbuilding and fence were dashed from the first drop. It didn't stop us hardy GoodGymers though and we made a break in-between the big grey clouds and fortunately it held off whilst we did our task. Jassy took the front building and tidied up the weeds that were making it look messy so that it would look it's best for the Jubilee street party. Dave, Scott, Claire and Tara took the back garden and cleared the paths pulling out weeds and rehoming the interesting coloured snails and bugs that were found.

We were all sad that we couldn't improve the look of the outbuilding so we made a 2nd attempt task for the end of June when hopefully the weather will be warmer and less prone to stormy weather. If you can make it please sign up here: https://www.goodgym.org/happenings/project-wall-paint-for-welcare-2nd-attempt

Rachel White has run a race with GoodGym for the first time. Tue 24 May 2022

Rachel has done their first race with GoodGym. Performing on the day is a lot of pressure; Rachel's dealt with the nerves and turned up on the day to make it happen.

If it don't play, chuck it away

Mon 23 May
Report written by Rob Haworth

Ms G needed an old broken piano moved from inside the house to outside, ready for collection by the council. Piano playing may not be our forte (speaking for myself) but piano shifting , we can do. The dynamic duo Rachel and Rob, as quick as you can say allegro, picked it up and put it down a few times, on the way out the front door. And that, as the less musically challenged folk say, was coda.

A right royal 10k run

Sun 22 May
Report written by Rachel White

Claire, Jen, Marie-Noelle and Rachel went on a right royal mission to Hampton Court for the 10k. The course was stunning - fit for princesses like us (thankfully). The first 4k was along the Thames path, looping back through Home Park and then through the grounds of Hampton Court Palace. It was a hot one - but that didn't boil our royal blood. Dave and the kids came to support and give us much needed cheer to keep us going. Even Henry VIII seemed impressed by our efforts. Great fun with a stunning backdrop - looking forward to the next local race!
