Litter-ally trollied!

Tue 21 Sep
Report written by Jenni H

With the dark nights coming in, we met a bit earlier than usual for a litter pick around Ealing Broadway.

We split up into three picking crews and set to work, covering Haven Green and the surrounding streets and towards Walpole park.

The fantastic effort of the three teams got us three bags of litter in just 45 mins, leaving Ealing a little bit cleaner!

Ben, Milly and Mira certainly got the most interesting finds of the evening, coming across a shopping trolley and a post box taking a lie down!

We couldn't leave the evening without celebrating Mira reaching 50 good deeds! 🥳 Give her a cheer!

Join us for a run followed by helping the community garden at St. Mary's

Tue 17 Aug

Welcome to GoodGym Ealing!

We're a friendly running group who combines exercise with volunteering. We meet every week to combine exercise with a physical task to help the charities and community organisations in our borough.

The Task:

This week we are heading to St. Mary's Church to help in their community garden. There's always lots of important jobs to do here to help keep this community space beautiful for all the use. It's used as a cut through route and thus is sometimes a taken for granted so let's help the church make it a the best it can be for everyone!

The Run:

We meet at 6.45pm (please come ready to run, we have no bag storage at the moment!) and 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! If you any questions or you're worried about the task or run then just contact me.

This week is 3km, great for beginners, walkers and those returning from injury. For those after a bit more we have a longer route option as well and we'll finish with a great fitness session!

Meeting Point:

Please meet at the gate to Lammas Park opposite Beaconsfield Road (exact location here).

If you want to skip the run and just join for the task, please meet at the same location at 7:10pm instead.

Social:

We're a social bunch and we often head straight to the pub after the task, we'd love you to join us!

See you there!

Tue 3 Aug 18:45 pm
Elthorne Park, Boston Road, London, W7 2AA

Please note that this group run has been cancelled.

Improve the secret garden in the half acre wood

Group runs are back!

What’s a group run?!

If you’ve joined GoodGym in the past year you’ve probably not experienced a group run - this is where we meet in a spot in Ealing, run to the task together, do the task and then run back. It’s the ultimate in getting fit and doing good all in one! Now restrictions are lifted we can do this again and we’re so excited!

Tonight we will meet outside the main entrance to Elthorne Park (opposite Elthorne Park Road) at 6:45pm for a 4km run to The William Hobbayne Half Acre Field where we will be digging over the secret garden and helping with other tasks around the woodland

What do you need to take part?

  • Please come ready to run - there is no bag storage so please only bring a bag if you’re comfortable running with it

  • Water - it’s very muggy at the moment!

  • Gloves - the gardening kind

  • A mask - in case we need to go inside and you’re requested to wear one

  • ALL paces are welcome, you can run, run/walk as needed and we’ll have a back marker so no one is left behind

  • If you just want to do the task and make your own way there you can meet at this pin point at 7:15pm instead - please comment below if you’re joining at the task location and not coming on the run from Elthorne Park

We’re a social bunch so after the task we often run/walk to a nearby pub to finish with a bev and some grub, we’d love you to join us! Which pub is often decided on the night.

Should I stay orchard I go now?

Tue 27 Jul
Report written by Liv Parker-Scott

Last night we had 15 wonderful souls out to help Ealing Transition keep on top of the brambles, hedges and general overgrowth in the community orchard.

Big welcome to Sophie who came along for her first ever GoodGym session, she rocked it!

We kicked off the night with a little warm up and introductions where we all went around and said the best thing that came out of lockdown for us. After quite a negative period where we're all grateful to be coming out of the other side it was great to hear some of the positives people have managed to take from the situation! Some got fitter, some gained pets and some learnt new skills, all awesome stuff!

We then took off on our group run around the parks before the task, big up to Shan and Harvey for their excellent back marking skills!

After grabbing tools we made our way down to the garden itself where super taskowner Trevor was ready and waiting for us to get stuck in. He explained how the garden is used for community learning, as an outdoor classroom and forest school. Such a cool and important space!

We were all about bramble control tonight and freeing the trees that were being smoothered in overgrowth. We also kept our taller members on hedge mangement, reaching up to snip them back into shape.

We had a few (okay more than a few!) nettles and prickly plants to deal with but the team smashed it and made a huge dent in the workload in the orchard!

All that was left was to sweep up, return the tools and head to the pub.

What an excellent evening!
