Undergrowth, overgrowth, brambling free

Sat 22 Jan
Report written by Graham Lee

Greenwich Goodgym were joined by “tourists” from Bexley and Fulham and Hammersmith for this morning’s task. Having participated in the earlier Charlton parkrun, we made the short trip to St Georges Garrison Church to be met by Tim, one of the Trustees. Secateurs, shears, fork and spades distributed , we were set to work and quickly got to the root of the prickly problem. After an hour or so, Tim called time and provided refreshments and a very interesting talk on the Church. This was a hidden gem in South East London and had it not been for Goodgym I would not have known this place existed. I think it fair to say, Tim was pleased with our efforts and we can expect a further invite.

Doin' the Woodland walk, oi!

Sat 15 Jan
Report written by Sarah Wren

This morning, Bexley GoodGymers were back helping the Friends of Danson Park sprucing up the Woodland Walk.

We moved logs to line the walk then spread wood chippings to cover the muddy path.

It was a big team effort as we worked alongside the Friends' regular volunteers and others from the Friends of the Old English Gardens and the 2nd Welling Scouts (both are organisations that GoodGym Bexley has worked with in their own right).

The transformation to the path was amazing, and shoveling the wood chips and wheeling the barrows certainly provided a 'Do Good Get Fit' workout!

A big thank you to The Stables for the tea and coffee afterwards; a welcome treat.

De-brambling at St George's Garrison Church

Sat 22 Jan 10:30 am
St George's Garrison Church, 5 Mill Lane, London, SE18 6BW
Get fit and do good in Greenwich

The St George's Garrison Church was designed by Thomas H Wyatt and built between 1862-63 to serve the Royal Artillery in Woolwich. Today it is run by a local group, the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust who are committed to making it available for all to visit and enjoy.

They are planning to build a Commonwealth & Gurkha Garden on the land beside the Church and need lots of brambles cut back to prepare the space.

Bring some gardening gloves (if you have heavy duty ones these will come in very handy!), come and get stuck in and we'll enjoy a cuppa afterwards :)

DANSON WOODLAND WALK 🌳

Sat 15 Jan 10:00 am
Danson Park, 51 Danson Rd, Bexleyheath, London, DA6 8HL
Helping out in our local community

One of my favourite places to volunteer. We’ll be tackling the woodland walk laying out paths and sorting out the bushes as well as other fun things. As usual Lyn will be waiting to greet us. It’s the perfect time to, straight after Danson Park Run so hopefully see upon there 👊🏻😃

We meet at the small toilet block office by the woodland walk opposite the old English gardens

Pining for an Xmas task - you’d better beleaf it

Sat 4 Dec
Report written by Sarah Lee

After parkrun participation at Bexley, Dartford Heath and Greenwich, runners plus other GoodGym members arrived at Christ Church Erith to help setup approximately 40 Xmas trees for the Erith Christmas Tree Festival. 🎄 As a result of COVID, this wasn’t held last year so it was our first visit back since 2019. This year the task was made easier as the trees arrived already in bases so we were required to move them to specific locations in the church. Some of the task force used the time saved to select and partly decorate the GoodGym tree. Thanks to Peter, Nick, the Lees and the Wrens for donations towards the sponsored tree 🎄 Mince pies consumed, a number of us were still hungry enough to make our way for a Xmas brunch at the Old Library.

A 𝘮𝘢𝘴𝘴-ive effort and a double celebration

Sat 6 Nov
Report written by Sarah Wren

When Christ Church in Erith wanted help tidying their grounds in preparation for their Remembrance Sunday service the next weekend, who did they call? GoodGym Bexley!

The focus was on the war memorial where the congregation and members of the public will gather.

Working alongside some of the church parishioners, Gemma and Martin tackled the flower bed surrounding the war memorial while Graham set about digging a patch in the grass ready for a new shrub to be planted. Susan and Sarah trimmed shrubs along the footpath, and Liam and Nick dug out some old roots then joined Johnny on a litter-picking forage around the grounds.

This task marked Graham's 50th good deed, and Sarah's 200th. In true GoodGym tradition there were home-baked muffins 🧁 and a certain brand of Swiss round chocolates to celebrate🍬.

Que Sarah, Sarah (What Litter Will Be, Will Be)

Sat 30 Oct
Report written by Sarah Wren

There was a good GG turnout - including three Sarahs and Sara - as we joined the Friends of Charlton Park on one of their regular litter picks with the lovely Charlton House as our backdrop.

It had been a very cold and wet start for those of us, including Poppy the dog, who had volunteered at, or run, Charlton parkrun before the task.

But the rain stopped and the sun came out as our litter patrol scoured the skate park and neighbouring areas for rubbish.

We were surprised how little litter there was but we still accumulated a small pile of bin bags in the allotted half and hour. Among the beer bottle caps, cigarette butts and lollipop sticks, our best find was a Lego Spiderman character.

The Wombles would have been proud of us.

(Thank you to Sarah Lee for the photos 📷.)

Someone has been adding soil to my flower beds... the plot thickens.

Sat 16 Oct
Report written by Sarah Wren

Getting their fitness in early, several GoodGymers, along with Poppy 🐾, started the morning at Bexley parkrun in Danson Park.

Then we headed across to the other side of the park where, joined by more GG-ers, we were back at one of our regular gigs helping the dedicated and award-winning volunteers of the Friends of the Old English Garden.

Our task was to help prepare some flower beds in readiness for planting a display for the Queens Jubilee next spring and summer.

At each flower bed we loosened the soil, dug it out, mixed in homemade fertiliser to enrich it, then shovelled the earth back into the plot.

We 𝘥𝘶𝘨 deep and 𝘴𝘱𝘢𝘥𝘦 good progress until, in contrast to the weather 𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘬cast, the heavens opened, quickly making the ground - and us - too wet to get the job finished.

Most of the GoodGymers headed home but a couple stayed a little longer to help clean and put away the gardening tools, rewarded with a warming cup of tea and delicious rock cakes.

Thank you for having us and see you on 20th November for our next installment.
