Probably out swimming, running or cycling.

We're going to help out the Friends of Woolwich Common who work to protect this beautiful open space and keep it clear from litter.
They'll have plenty of bags and pickers so just bring some gloves with you. If you register to be an Environmental Champion at email@example.com you can also get your own pickers from the council.
We'll meet opposite the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on the common at 11am. This will be a recurring task on the last Sunday of each month to keep the common in tip top condition! The Friends of group will give you a good welcome. Make sure you take some snaps and nominate someone to write the run report!
The second if June’s Saturday volunteer day helping out at garden at The Exchange Erith.
Join head gardener, Louis and the other volunteers to help in the garden, greenhouse and houseplant collection within the grounds of the old library.
With summer coming there is plenty to do from cutting trees, tidying shrubs, deadheading, weeding and watering.
The Saturday sessions run from 9am-5pm and run on a drop in drop out basis.
I will list the mission as 10am-12pm in order to get in a parkrun first. Feel free to arrive and leave as you please, just sign in with Louis.
The Bookshop Cafe also has some really good brunch options 🥐🍳🥓
Seven GoodGymers met at their regular spot at Old Cottage Cafe at 10:30am for the scheduled monthly litter pick. We split into groups of two or three and then headed off out into the park with our trusty litter pickers and bin liners.
There never looks like there is much litter in the park, at first glance, but when we got going we were amazed at what we found. Discarded bottles of water, scraps of food, crisp packets and bottles and at one point we even picked up a dead pigeon along the way!
All in all, with the sun shining and the warm weather, it felt like a job well done and the we left the park feeling pretty satisfied that it was cleaner than when we arrived. This made us feel good as we headed on home and went on with our day.

Were looking for 3-4 runners to help out serving food and drinks to the excellent volunteers helping out as part of Age UK.
It'll be a lot of fun in (hopefully) some sun so come along if you can!
