GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners/walkers and cyclist of all abilities. It is often possible to walk/cycle to some of the tasks if you would prefer.

Sunset at the Rec

Tue 10 May
Report written by Conroy

Congratulations to Karim on completing his 50th good deeds.

**Last night 7 of us ran 8.9km to Thornton Heath Rec, to assist the friend of Thornton Heath Rec, with a spot of gardening. The distance is a bit more than our usual runs but each member of the group welcomed the challenge and we stuck together as a group going at a leisurely pace.

When we arrive Pia, was there to greet us, but before she started to tell us what needed to be done she allowed us a minute to recover and thanked us for running that distance to assist.

Our task was in the orchard, the protective barriers around the fruit trees needed to be widen as users of the Rec, were breaking limbs/branches from the trees.

We split into small groups, where some of us worked on removing the grass and widening the area around the trees, some transported the grass we had dug up to the compost heap and others worked on replacing the barriers once we had cleared the grass. We only had one mallet to drive in the stakes for the chicken wire, which decided to call it a day after we had used it to drive in 5/6 stakes then it broke which rendered that part of our task over. But we continued to tidy up around the other trees until our time had come to an end. Pia thanked us for the amount of work we had done during the time we had been there and informed us of how good it is to have us there as her group of volunteers would not be able to complete the amount of work we were able to do due to there various mobility frailties.

If anyone is interested in some solo missions by assisting they meet on Sundays at 2pm they would like your help and if you have any gardening tools you would like to donate they would gladly accept them too.

Next week we will be celebrating our 6th birthday the task will be at Park Hill, then we'll be heading to Box Park to celebrate 6 years of GoodGym Croydon. Come and join us either by the group run or out for a drink of your choice.

Report written by Conroy

On our way to our warm up area we found a passport and an ID card which we also dropped off at the local police station. Should we log this as a good deed too? Yesterday 7 members met at Solutions to head over to St Pauls United reform Church, where by Hannah and Catherine met us to assist the members of St Pauls United Reform Church, tidy up an area of the church to build their new herb garden.

We have been assisting St Pauls in clearing an over grown area of ivy and other bushes during the winter months and on our visit yesterday we were able to make further in roads in completing more weeding for the plating to begin. We pulled up roots shifted bramble and other bushes that had been cut down over the weekend to a near by skip while listening to the gospel rock band rehearse inside the church. We nattered away while working and before we knew it, our time there had come to an end after bidding our good byes, we ran off towards water tower hill were all bravely tried running up and over but its been a while since we have attempted a session on that hill and we were defeated but vowed to return one day in the near future.

Thanks to Nicola for taking us on a more scenic route were we discovered the hidden railway near the scouts hut.

We congratulated Kate on completing her first 10K, which has got her in the mood for some more running that she have already signed up to her first Half Marathon, fancy running along with her? Sign up here but do ensure to register with the race organisers.

On the 17th May we will be celebrating our 6th birthday, along with Hannah's 100th good deeds why not come along to our group run then onto box park for the celebrations

Re-Building Broken Bridges

Tue 26 Apr
Report written by Kate Bowden

On Tuesday 8 runners ran 2km to spruce up the children's outside play area at Tunstall Nursery.

After several sunny days, the wind was out tonight making it a little bit cooler but we were all very glad that we are back to doing evening tasks in daylight! As we warmed up we made guesses as to what we might be doing tonight at the task, then we headed off on the longer route to the task to see who would be right! Jane met us and took us through to the play area where she had several tasks lined up for us. Magda, Hannah and Paul picked up the brooms and began sweeping up to keep the play area clear of leaves and it was soon full of lots of little piles for Ingrid to tidy into the dustpan. Conroy, Steph and Ros took the wheel barrow and set to topping up the sand pit with fresh sand. Kate and Nikki began to help Jane with dismantling a chain bridge in the play area as the supports had become rotten. The pins holding it together were pretty solid though and after a bit of ingenuity we were able to wrestle it apart and make the area a safe and fun place for the children to play.

Check out the website for community missions listed for the weekend and the group run next Tuesday!
