Rob completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Rob was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Rob is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
Eight of us met up in Kennington Park on the hottest day of the year so far for a spot of gardening 👩🌾
After a tour of the park to pick up some litter we headed to some flower beds to do some weeding.
- Alex and Lizzie, both first timers 🥳 were pulling out some grass type plant around the roses.
- Rob (another first timer 🥁), Sarah, Rowan, Jen, Michael and I were pulling out a weed called mouse ear which had taken over a flower bed. We had some chat about and the 5k in Brockwell Park in a few weeks that some of us are running and the return of parkrun hopefully very soon 🤞
After a bit over an hours work in the boiling sun we headed back to the rose garden with the tools and weeds.
The award-winning Friends Of Kennington Park (partly thanks to the work of GoodGym 😏) have asked for some GG muscle to help out at their monthly gardening session.
Tasks will likely include:
🥀 Deadheading and pruning
🗑 Litter picking
🌱Pulling up bindweed!
What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon!! ☀️
Please bring gardening gloves 🧤🧤and meet at the garden here.
NB: there may not be anyone from taskforce to lead, but the Kennington Park team are super lovely and will tell you what to do :)
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:
