Success cemented!

Report written by Pete Hutchings

WOW what a mission!

We might have slightly over run but it was totally worth it to see the job done. 10 tons of crushed concrete shovelled into bags and carried up four flights of stairs.

Well deserved ice cream treat at the end thanks to the Southbank centre made it even more worth it.

Over the last couple of months Good Gym have been supporting Grounded Ecotherapy volunteers to get the garden ready to reopen after 20 months of closure. The work has really paid off and the garden opens next week and is looking stunning!

Huge thank you everyone for making it happen.

Wed 16 Jun 18:30 pm
Southbank Centre , Belvedere Road, London, SE1 8XX
This will have a massive impact working with the charity to help get the garden in a safe state to reopen after over 18 months of closure.

Returning to the fabulous Southbank Centre roof Garden, continuing on our mission to help get it ready for opening again to the public. We'll be doing some general gardening duties including weeding and painting planters as well as moving crushed concrete to make new pathway.

Please bring your own gloves if you have, or can provide you some.

Bee the best you can bee 🐝

Wed 9 Jun
Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

Last night, a top crew of local Goodgymmers (including first timers Tom and Sophie- welcome!) joined us at Thornhill Square Gardens for a pleasant summers evening of garden renovation. Anna, the local volunteer coordinator met us at the gates of the park (surrounded by happy families and friends enjoying the sun) with wheelbarrows, rakes, hoes, clippers and shovels in hand.

We divided our team up into smaller groups to conquer the task- Andrew, Mali and John jumped on the chance to do some classic mushroom compost shoveling and wheelbarrowing. Katriona and Steve helped with clearing some overgrown weeds and shrubs from the very healthy looking plant beds in the middle of the park. These particular community beds had been cordoned off with wire mesh to keep the wild flowers safe from the public (and to attract loads and loads of bees! They were everywhere!), so we had to lift the compost over the fencing to spread across the beds.

Tom, Caitlin and Sophie took charge of clearing the main pathways into the park of green waste, and weeded the paving slabs and walls as best they could. Between us, we had gathered up along of excess grass and greenery, so we took it in turns to add the trimmings and clippings into the community compost bin.

Anna was thrilled with the progress we had made over the course of an hour. She even posted an appreciative Thank You message on the Thornhill Square Gardens instagram account:
