Santa's Sort-y List

Sat 11 Dec
Report written by Mark Gilyead

Today's task was to help out Living Well and their food bank with checking and packing "Christmas Bags" - a more festive version of their regular packages they give to those that need them.

Members of the public were asked to provide specific things (salmon, shower gel, coffee, festive biscuits, tinned fruit...etc.) and we were there to check that everything was there.

Firstly we shifted all the bags into the church, before getting on with going through each bag and matching them with the list of food. If there was something missing, we'd grab it from the usual food bank stock, and then we'd top the bags up with mince pies and other Christmas treats!

Once they were all filled, we moved the bags back into the containers outside. A good test of brain power, speed and muscle! 🧠🏃💪

Mary from Living Well sent me this after the session:

"A big thank you to everyone who helped today with Christmas bags. If we had to do them without your help it would have taken many hours."

Great work guys! And big shout out to Carla who came along for her first GG task - A baptism of fire with a speedy session! 🎉🔥

Packing Christmas Bags with Living Well

Sat 11 Dec 13:00 pm
Living Well, Holy Trinity Church, 66 Lennard Road, London, SE20 7LX
To be distributed to Food Banks

Living Well is a fab organisation in Penge who provide a foodbank to locals. They've asked for a hand sorting out donations into 'Christmas Bags' which will last over the Christmas period.

We'll meet at Living Well at 1pm and the task may be outside so probably wear gloves and warmer clothes! We should be done within an hour.

A great opportunity to spread some Christmas cheer!

6 people would be great!!

Email me if you have any questions.

See you there!

To rain or not to rain? That is the question 💀🌱

Sat 22 May
Report written by Sam Lefevre

Reference to the report title/pun comes from chatting with George and her time spent at The Globe theatre the night before - admittedly she watched A Midsummer Night's Dream, still Shakespeare...

Five GoodGymers met on a grey and cloudy morning with the weather just holding up. Yet, Millie (and Lou, the dog) and the Friends of Alexandra Recreation Grounds showed up in full force with the tools and the determination to get stuck in again after our last session two weeks ago.

We continued with taking out sticky weeds, normal weeds and long grass from the borders surrounding the Lodge House. Katy, who came to her first GoodGym mission in a very long time, and Linda, who hasn't been to a GoodGym mission for some time too, took on the side of the border that had more dense shrubs. George, Laura and Sam finished off the other side near the Lodge House entrance, where they were stuck with the age old question - "Is it a weed or a weedy looking plant/flower?" Always a tough question to ask!

As it started to get darker and colder and the gang were approaching the end of the session, the clouds had to break into small tears of sadness...but not for too long and often the rain is a welcome help when removing weeds from the soil.

The task ended slightly early (15 minutes or so) as many hands make light work, but there's plenty of sessions at Alexandra Recreation Grounds in the future and they are all on the GG website, so please be sure to sign up!

Cator-ing for and planting saplings in Cator Park

Sun 18 Apr
Report written by Sam Lefevre

Five GoodGymers woke up early(-ish) on a beautiful and bright Sunday morning to meet at Cator Park to help out Friends of Cator Park with various tasks.

Proceeding to the container unit, we got the various tools we needed for the morning. Sam was happy the buckets were going to be used again. It's the only GG task (so far) where you have to fetch for water with a bucket and strong rope.

We split the team up. Clare, Ian and Tony took care of the Rose Garden, which was in dire need of weeding and for the dry soil to be overturned.

Whereas Sam and Michelle joined the Friends of Cator Park gang to dig holes and trenches to plant fern saplings. However, upon digging about 10cms, they noticed the soil was very rocky. Yet, we persevered with any and all tools to get past the rocks and rubble to be at least a shade deep. That took almost the whole session as the last 15 minutes, the Rose Garden gang came over to help put down some bone meal and compost before planting the saplings in with the dug up soil. Finally, we watered the plants and of course, took loads of photos 😊

The Friends of Cator Park were very thankful for our help and can't wait to have us back. Look out for these sessions as there are a few booked in already!
