Today, three Goodgymmers delivered some food to families around SE London for Kinship hub. Led by Anna-Lou, the families are getting together virtually this evening to cook together. We delivered the ingredients for some Thai-inspired burgers, a mango slaw and sweet potato fries - yum!
We did two drops each, getting in our miles for the day. As an added bonus, Anna-Lou had some surplus celery, so we each took home some celery too!
There’s a mural in Deptford, painted by local residents way back when. It inspired Mark Knopfler’s writing the ‘Love over Gold’ album. Everything is minded to inspire, even though it’s all a bit grubby and chaotic. Medical centres call themselves things like Kingfisher and Creekside, flats masquerade as mansions, streets are even called ‘Friendly Street’ and parks are named after local educators or animal activists. I met a kind couple of long residing locals to pick up prescriptions and drop their samples off. Both the people at the pharmacy and those at the doctors knew Mr & Mrs P and were cheery and pleased to hear they were well. All signs of a strong community and a place for GoodGym to slot in.
