Back to ̶B̶l̶a̶c̶k̶ RED! 🥳

Sun 25 Jul
Report written by Danny

After 2 long years the Asics London 10k was finally back on the streets of Westminster and as ever, GoodGym were there to provide support (and water) to the people racing.

Despite TFL seemingly taking the morning off and a very threatening weather forecast, 23 volunteers made it to Aid Station 1 on Victoria Embankment just behind Somerset House, home of GoodGym HQ. On this occasion we were distributed across several sites in fact, with 6 or so pioneers also down at Westminster Abbey helping out on Aid Station 2.

It was a cool day out so demand for water would be modest, but nonetheless the cups were carefully stacked 3 layers high along 15-odd tables ready for the runners. For the first time we also had a refilling stop for those who’d brought their own bottles.

As well as people proudly wearing their GoodGym colours, those racing included Spartans, a banana, a panda bear and a man dressed entirely in purple. 🤷‍♂️

Presumably owing to a staggered start and the mild temperature, things never got hectic on Aid Station 1 and it really wasn’t long before it was time to politely encourage the unused water cups onto the ground and start clearing everything away.

Thanks so much for coming team and helping get GoodGym out in front of some eyes! Those that volunteered on AS1 today get to enjoy a free place on an upcoming LimeLight Sports race which will be the (postponed) Hackney Half this September, the Oxford Half in October, the Hackney Half in May 2022, or the next London 10K in a years time.

Vine and dandy

Sat 24 Jul
Report written by Sam Chapman

I helped Mrs V by cutting back the weeds and vast bramble and ivy vines in her garden to make it more habitable.

I cut and bagged up 4 big old bags of stuff and had a bonus of a surprise hitchhiker in my bag when I got home! 🕷 😲

Good Morning Tufnell Park Plant Nursery!

Wed 21 Jul 08:00 am
McCall House and Hollins House Plant Nursery, Tufnell Park Rd, London, N7 0PJ
Preparing a community plant nursery for the local residents

Frannie from Octopus Community Network has invited us back to the Tufnell Park Plant Nursery for an early morning lifting task.

This is a really great hidden community project!

Our plan is to move a large collection of donated compost bags to the nursery using wheelbarrows and carts. A huge job for one person, made easy with many hands. 30 minutes total duration expected.

Some directions from Frannie:

"The easiest way to find (the nursery) is to walk along Tufnell Park Road from the Holloway Road, so that the Odeon is on your right, than at the first little zebra crossing look left for Hollins House and McCall House, enter the estate and walk to the back between the 2 blocks and look left and there is the community Plant Nursery."

Spotting Fowl behaviours on the run (or walk) citizen science!

Sat 31 Jul 18:45 pm
Any where!!!, Any Bird!!, Any behaviour, Any time
Get you out observing nature & invite a friend

This a rolling any time community mission. Send us a picture of any interesting bird behaviour.

The British Trust for Ornithology and the behavioural science research group at Middlesex University have started an online Citizen Science project. They want to see how much birds eat human foods and litter instead of "natural" food like worms and insects. You don’t need to be able to identify bird species to take part. Register here and go to https://mdxl.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cON8ssxLcI8T6Wq

The study is open until 26th August. You can submit multiple times You can participate as many times as you like, provide as many details as you like, and skip questions you don't want to answer. You don't need to know anything about birds. If you don't know a bird's name, you can describe what it looks like instead. Your responses will be kept completely confidential.

The study should take you around 10 minutes to complete. Your participation in this research is voluntary. You have the right to withdraw at any point during the study. The Principal Investigator of this study can be contacted at ss3903@live.mdx.ac.uk.
