A shorter run to St Christopher's Hospice shop

Mon 6 Dec 18:45 pm
Glass Mill Leisure Centre, 41 Loampit Vale, Lewisham, SE13 7FT
A shorter run and an indoor task

Welcome to GoodGym Lewisham!

We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every Monday evening to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations in our area.

The Task:

This week we will be making the shorter journey to the St Christopher's Hospice shop in Lewisham, so a distance suitable for walking, with a longer running option. At the shop there will be a few different jobs to choose from, so something for everyone! Please remember to bring a mask as this is an indoor task

The Run/walk:

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and it is sometimes possible to walk to the task if you would prefer. 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.

The Essentials:

We meet at Glass Mill Leisure Centre at 6.45pm, so a short walk from Lewisham Station. We have access to lockers and changing facilities, so you could easily drop in on your way home (bring a pound coin or padlock if you want to use the lockers). Look out for the red t-shirts, we're very friendly! Every so often we head out after our run for some food and drink, a chance to get to know each other a bit better.

See you soon!

Clearing brambles at the Wildcat Wilderness.

Sun 28 Nov
Report written by Vic

It was a chilly but bright morning at the Wildcat Wilderness where families were making Christmas cards with leaves and paint. I got stuck into bramble clearing with the trusty weedbashing tool. Maria gave instructions to ‘head to the tree’…almost got there, next time it will be ‘go around the tree’. I can’t wait! 💪

Helping out at Surrey Docks Farm 🐏🐖🐐

Sat 27 Nov

It's back! We are back at Surrey Docks Farm every last Saturday of the month!

Gemma and Kate (coordinators at the Farm) need 6 volunteers to help out with a host of tasks from weeding to sieving compost and from bagging manure to sweeping the goats pen. There's always plenty to do! The session is from 14:00-16:00.

  • Please remember to bring your own gloves and wear facemasks at this task
  • Adhere to the Farm's COVID measures at all times
  • This is a popular and in-demand task, so please sign up and turn up on the day if you can commit. Otherwise, please give the space to someone else.

As always, the last hour half is spent cuddling goats, sheep and all the other Farm animals! Hope you can join us and say hello to the pigs, goats and sheep again!

Feeling 22

Sat 27 Nov
Report written by Vic

While a couple of Lewisham runners went to Catford parkrun to Marshall in the freezing cold, I was heading to Hillyfields parkrun for the first pacing session since precovid.

I was pacing 22 mins, my watch said 21.59.9, can’t get closer than that! Unfortunately the Timers had it at 22.02 but I’m going to pretend that didn’t happen!
