Samina has just reached another level: 100 good deeds with GoodGym. That's at least 100 times when they could have easily done something easier. But they didn't, Samina has kept going and going. Helping a lot of other people and getting a bit fitter at the same time. Congratulations Samina.

Sand and Deliver

Mon 27 Sep
Report written by Liz James

This evening we meet outside the pub for an intro speech and warm up. A big welcome to Becka and Analiese, who joined GG Brent for the first time!

We had a short run to the task. Our first job was to move the wooden house. Every member of the team was essential to moving the house! It was heavy!

Our second task was to deliver sand from bags into two sand pits. We searched for more buckets, so that we could have all hands on deck!

The team worked together, to finish the task promptly. We had a short run, followed by some cool down stretches to finish the evening.

Also, huge congratulations to Samina who achieved her 100th GG deed today!

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SIGN UP - YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND IF YOU DO NOT SIGN UP HERE

It's back to school for GG Brent this week as we head to Mora Primary School to help with a big delivery of sand that needs distributing in the playground. A great physical task for us and a big help for the school. It's a 2 - 3km run this week. Apologies, for those that came last week but we are definitely on this time!

We'll still be meeting at the Queensbury but please find everyone on the outside area in front of the pub. You can still leave valuables but the run leaders or Taskforce will help with this to prevent any unnecessary congregation inside - do be prepared for all weathers and the fading light!

The task was a stretch!

Mon 20 Sep
Report written by Liz James

We met outside Papagayo cafe for a warm-up. This was followed by a short run to Mora primary school.

Unfortunately, there had been a little mis-communication, so the task was a little out of our reach this evening.

However, we put our time to good use with some fitness fun. Sabina kindly led a stretching session. This was followed by a longer run back to base, led by Liz.

We finished the session with some Mora stretching.

It's back to school for GG Brent this week as we head to Mora Primary School to help with a big delivery of sand that needs distributing in the playground. A great physical task for us and a big help for the school. It's a 2 - 3km run this week. On the off chance that the sand is not delivered in time there will be another task for us at the school!

The Queensbury is unfortunately closed again so we'll be using Papagayo Cafe again but please find everyone on outside the cafe. You can still leave valuables but the run leaders or Taskforce will help with this to prevent any unnecessary congregation inside - do be prepared for the weather and the dark by bringing a head torch

Getting the garden on track!

Mon 13 Sep
Report written by Liz James

Helen, Samina and Liz began the evening with a short warm-up, followed by a run. There was no track to follow, so the pavement had to suffice. However, they were on track to begin the task at Brondesbury energy garden on time!

We were joined by Karen and Pete and we were greeted by Naomi, who explained the task for the evening. Working alongside the railway tracks, we were training our arm muscles. The task was to dig the brambles and their roots out of the ground. The roots were deep and entwined, so it required a lot of energy to get the garden on track.

We finished the evening with a short run and some cool down stretches before heading to the pub to discuss the pun!

Bringing some joy to our local stations through plants

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SIGN UP - YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND IF YOU DO NOT SIGN UP HERE

This week we are back helping Energy Garden. This organisation brings plants to station areas on the overground improving the environment and general well being to stations around London. As the gardens have been neglected during the pandemic it is time to get them looking ship shape and that is where we come in. We're hoping to help a lot over the coming months and this week we are helping to clear some brambles that have over grown the area. It's a big task but just the kind of thing we can get stuck in to. It's a shorter run (less than 2km) but the work will be hard - come join us and show us your mettle

We'll still be meeting at the Queensbury but please find everyone on the outside area in front of the pub. You can still leave valuables but the run leaders or Taskforce will help with this to prevent any unnecessary congregation inside.

Is possible please bring your own gardening gloves too!

Fairy tool of New Fork

Mon 6 Sep
Report written by Liz James

We met outside Papagayo cafe for a quick warm up. We quickly set off on our journey to Harlesden Gardens (AKA Fairy garden). At the task we met Fairy Garden-mother, Gill.

Princess Tabitha, Prince Lee and Princess Liz quickly set to work, cleaning the tools. They scrubbed the trowels, spades and shears until they were as shiny as a mirrors. Then we could ask, who is the fairest of them all?

Meanwhile, Princess Helen and Princess Samina dug out the weeds.

Finally, our work was done and the hard workers could travel to the ball (AKA Papagayo cafe). Sadly, the pumpkins weren't ready for harvesting, so we had to travel by foot!
