Mop, skip and a jump

Wed 26 Jan
Report written by Anastasia Hancock

It's lovely to see tasks we have done over the years develop and evolve throughout Hounslow, and last night was the perfect example of that. A few years ago we ran to the area under Turnham Bridge station - at that time it was a pretty unattractive mix of many layers of old fly posting, peeling paint and not a little amount of bird poo. We helped strip it all back so that a new beautiful timeline of Chiswick mural could be installed by a local artist. Since then, pre pandemic, we have been back to give it a good clean and help with its upkeep, and, despite the freezing conditions last night, it was time for its annual spruce up.

We met first at our usual spot, and first off it was time to give GoodGym hero Alan a huge cheer for reaching that magic milestone - 50 good deeds. Over the course of those good deeds, Alan has run many, many kilometres (even completing his first marathon), hundred of squats and made a massive difference to his community. A huge well done! It was also lovely to see so many faces from Ealing GG - welcome! We started off with a much needed warm up and before we set off for the mural, discussed which wonder of the world, famous or historic place we would love to be transported too. The Temples of Kyoto, Rio and even, er, Peckham were on the list.

Carrying buckets, mops and sponges, we headed down to the mural to find the artist who created it, Sarah, waiting for us with (thankfully warm) water and a ladder. Gloves on and scrubbers at the ready, we wiped, washed, scrubbed and polished until the whole thing was looking sparkling. One happy group photo later, and we were done. There was an optional, but very tough, fitness session which involved flying thirties combined with conditioning exercises, and then a run back to base. Well done on a large-scale but very effective job last night everyone! Next week we're back for a task we'll be going to more regularly at Cultivate London, to help them ahead of their move. You can sign up for all the inevitable fun right here. Run happy, everyone.

Washing the mural at Turnham Green station

Chiswick Town Hall, Heathfield Terrace, Turnham Green,, Chiswick,, W4 4JN
Tidy up this public space for the community

Over the years we have helped prep the historic mural outside Turnham Green station, then help with its upkeep. The time has come for us to give it a good clean. We'll help carry over buckets and ladders, give it a good tidy up, then move everything back again. This will help make the area clean and welcoming for people in the area.

Good things come in trees!

Tue 4 Jan
Report written by Liv Parker-Scott

Last night we kicked off January 2022 in tree-mendous style! - 10 GoodGymers came out to help ensure trees were taken to the designated recycling points to be turned into lovely woodchip in our local parks!

Fir god's sake, where are all the trees?!

We arrived at the park to find a large stash of trees at the recycling point and we intended to scout around the surrounding streets to add to it! However we may have been a little early this year as normally we find a huge number of abandoned trees and this year we had to work a little harder to reel them in!

We split into 3 groups with some more successful than others, however by the end we dragged about 12 over in total included some pretty beefy ones! Cam definitely found the largest of the night which required three people to carry it! But the most collected by one group was the dream team of Annabel, Claire and Shan who arrived back with 6 between them!

We finished up with a sally squats leg blast before all jogging off towards home.

What a lovely way to start the year!


Next Tuesday we'll be back out on the streets doing something else fun and active and we've got loads more stuff coming up this January too - click here to see all the sessions in Ealing.

Bodyline Studio, 5-6 Spring Bridge Mews, Ealing, W5 2AB
Join us to do good and get fit for the first time in 2022!

Welcome to GoodGym Ealing!

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

The Task:

Join us to do good and get fit for the first time in 2022!

This week we'll be doing the classic Christmas tree sweep!

Basically we'll mooch around scooping up discarded trees, dropping them at designated collection points for recycling. It's a great work out and great fun!

PLEASE BRING GLOVES WITH YOU!

The Run:

Tonight we'll meet at 6.45pm for a run starting from outside Bodyline Fitness Gym on Spring Bridge Mews. Please come ready to run, there's no bag drop or toilets.

GoodGym is for everyone and we welcome runners of all abilities. 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 have any questions or you're worried about the task or run then just contact me. The total distance there and back will be around 5km.

What if you don't want to run?!

If running isn't your bag then that's cool too - you can meet us at Cleveland Park where we'll be doing the task (use this pinpoint) at 7:20pm instead. You could walk or cycle there to get your exercise in your way! Post below to let me know if you're planning on meeting for the run or meeting at the park.

See you there!
