Slug-cess

Wed 13 Oct
Report written by Brahma Pochee

Had the fortune of bumping into Paul on the journey to Stratford, got to catch up on the last few months, before he made a dash for home and endeavoured to catch us up.

Simon, Hilary, Kevin and Sharon were ahead of me, waiting at the PrintHouse, we discussed ankle laxity and regeneration, did an unconventional warm up, and then headed off into the night. On route we went through this week's RWQ "Have you recently spoken out of turn?" I managed it twice, I think, on Tuesday, hence wanted some reassurance that others do it too. Kev confused his inner monologue with his actual real life voice at a board meeting "are you f'ing serious?" I believe was the phrase used. Shaz had a a few examples with patient's parents. Hils and Simon, exemplary humans that they no doubt are, were without. Teach me, please?

Got to Get Out and got stuck in asap. Paul and Sharon grabbed brooms and started sweeping the paths. Hils and Simon went on a slug hunt and Kev and I cleaned the the algae off the pond.Felt like a privilege to be in that serene lush setting at night, surrounded by the bustling city, yet cocooned in our own little oasis.

We finished off with a drink, thanks Paul, and focaccia (read garlic bread) with humous, thanks Hils. All in an evening's work.

Next week we're at Cody Dock, sign up here

Till then my aerobic war horses,

Simon Hempenstall has done a 6 month mission streak. Wed 6 Oct 2021

Simon just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Simon a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.

Compassion is the number 1 ingredient

Wed 6 Oct
Report written by Tower Hamlets runner

GoodGym Tower Hamlets members Simon H, Simon L, Eva, Beth and Aine delivered parcels to local people in need of the organisation's support alongside regular volunteers, and helped the task owners to count the stock in the storeroom.

The five had made their separate ways to Raines Foundation School where Bethnal Green Foodbank is set up in operation, by foot and bicycle and were actively helping this charity to support the people of our local area at a time when food supplies and basic household needs can be hard to come by.

For some GG members, working at home or sitting all day in an office can present its challenges, and others have challenging caring committments, but we talked about how attending a regular communal activity where we get to help other people and make local connections can be a highlight of the week (as well as a get-out-of-jail card for those 5pm meeting invitations! ).

GG social committee member Aine reminded regulars talked about on Thursday's pub trip to The Dundee Arms (https://www.goodgym.org/happenings/it-s-in-cambridge-heath-road-not-dundee), and arranged to meet a brand new recruit at the following weekend's hike to Seven Sisters (https://www.goodgym.org/happenings/hike-the-beautiful-seven-sisters-a8e9d8b6-5118-4df1-b5b5-57c1c9cf89e3) - all over a friendly pint in the local Approach Tavern (where we have just secured a Bethnal Green Food Bank group discount!!)

Wed 6 Oct 17:30 pm
Raines Foundation School, Approach Road, London, E2 9LY
Come and join what's proving to be a popular GG midweek session!

Background

The foodbank have really appreciated GoodGymers lending a hand over the past few weeks, and they remain in need of a few pairs of GoodGym hands during October too... This is a really friendly, well organised activity.

What you will be doing

The fantastic Foodbank team could really do with a hand stock-taking, packing bags, clearing... this evening.

  • Although I won't be at the task, I'm always available if you have any questions or issues. Any problems, just give me a shout! - Laura

GetOut community garden

Sat 25 Sep

Kieran at the Get Out community garden is looking for regular help on Saturday afternoons 12 till 3 to keep the garden growing and make it an increasingly nice space for the local community.

You do not have to stay for the whole of 12-3. Perfectly fine for people to drop in whenever they can between those times.

Note there might be some Saturdays that we won’t have access to the adjoining school, so there may not be access to toilets.

The gardens are just next to the Gurdwara on Harley Grove, entrance through the black door. Also important to note that we’ll often do something social after, eg little drinky on the way home.

Cheers!
