Put up Christmas decorations at Seniors!

Mon 29 Nov

We love visiting Seniors and especially visiting to put up the Christmas decorations! Join us this week, for a run of around 7km, where we will add some festive cheer to south east London. If you have a head-torch, please bring it for the run, it will be dark!

If you are new to all this, don't be shy and don't be worried about feeling left out, we try to make everyone feel very welcome. If you are using the changing rooms and lockers at Glass Mill, make sure you bring a returnable £1 coin.

The mountain is now a mole hill

Mon 15 Nov
Report written by Kim Parker

Third time lucky on our return to Hither Green station embankment, this time we'd perfected our soil moving technique, we had an elaborate human chain moving the soil in buckets from one end to the other, a couple of people filling in the edges with soil, we had people swapping in and out to relieve the people digging - fantastic work everyone!!

Ain't no mountain high enough

I had high hopes that we might get to the bottom of the soil this week but it's going to take another session or two and then we'll finally get to the seed sowing stage and hopefully we'll see our rewards in spring/summer when the wildflower meadow will be looking beautiful.

In the end we didn't have time for a fitness session on the way back to Glass Mill as we got carried away with the soil but I think everyone worked hard enough anyway. I bet arms are aching this morning.

Next week we are heading to Glebe Court, a salvation army care home to work in the garden. Sign up here. Important information - we are required to have proof of double vaccination and a negative lateral flow test in advance of arriving at the task otherwise we will not be allowed onto the premises.

Don't forget the GoodGym Lewisham (nearly) Christmas Party, sign up here.

Move the soil at Hither Green station embankment

Mon 15 Nov 18:45 pm
Glass Mill Leisure Centre, 41 Loampit Vale, Lewisham, SE13 7FT
Create a wildflower meadow

Welcome to GoodGym Lewisham!

We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every Monday evening to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations in our area.

The Task:

We’re heading back to Hither Green station embankment to try and get to the bottom of the mountain of soil that will eventually become a wildflower meadow.

The Run/walk:

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and it is sometimes possible to walk to the task if you would prefer. We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together, so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is.

The Essentials:

We meet at Glass Mill Leisure Centre at 6.45pm, so a short walk from Lewisham Station. We have access to lockers and changing facilities, so you could easily drop in on your way home (bring a pound coin or padlock if you want to use the lockers). Look out for the red t-shirts, we're very friendly! Every so often we head out after our run for some food and drink, a chance to get to know each other a bit better.

See you soon!

Fly Hard 2: Flyer Harder

Mon 8 Nov
Report written by Kim Parker

It was wonderful to see some familiar faces return to group runs last night and also to welcome new faces from our neighbouring boroughs!

We started the evening by distributing the flyers amongst the group as we had a lot to carry and warmed up with a game of rock, paper, scissors which is fast becoming my favourite warm up. The confusion between who wins and loses and the realisation that even the winner has to do some form of exercise...

Armed with my trusty paper map marked with the streets we needed to cover, we headed up the hill for a second time to deliver the rest of the leaflets. A couple of people tackled the streets at the bottom of the hill and the rest of us continued making our way to the top.

Julian and Miguel tackled a long street with multiple side streets and rejoined us nearer the top of the hill. No getting lost - they deserve big cheers.

Another group headed off down further side streets and rejoined us at the top, just in time for the final group to rejoin us as we made our way down the hill and back to the start point. Fantastic work everyone!

We have a community mission on Saturday at St Mary's Church, we'll be getting involved in planting the shade boarder and planting bulbs. Sign up here

Next week we are heading back to Hither Green to tackle the mountain of soil again - third time lucky. All the info here.
