A Little Light Cleaning

Islington Report written by anne malcolm

Mr D's rheumatoid arthritis limits what he can do for himself around the house. To brighten up the flat, Goodgym were asked to take down 3 net curtains to be washed, and to clean the inside of the windows.

Mr D had the step ladder, cloths and cleaning spray ready, and in no time the 3 curtains were in the washing machine with an extra dash of detergent, which Mr D felt should be added for good measure.

While the machine did it's thing, Anne used old fashioned elbow grease (and some modern cleaning spray) to let the light back through the windows.

As the washing machine finished it's task, Mr D and Anne had a cuppa and a chat about his late wife, his trip to Paris as a 17 yr old lad and the merits of jellied eels.

With the curtains clean and rehung, the windows looked much fresher and allowed the lovely spring sunshine into the room.

No photo was taken of the final result (oops!) But Mr D was very happy with the job done.

Smooth Pick up

Hackney Report written by Joel Wiles

4 GoodGymers Plogged there way along the Hackney section of the Regents Canal.

Head torches, bags, litter pickers, gloves and a smile was all we needed as we headed off to clear as much rubbish away from the Regents Canal tow path!

Aiming to reduce the contaminants that get into the canals ecosystem to help it to thrive as well as making a safer more enjoyable route for all the walkers, runners and cyclists to use as they navigate through the Borough.

A potential celebrity sighting (undone by head torch glare). Lots of very encouraging and thankful comments in great company with some fun chats in luckily lovely weather (for February) made for a quality time which was super productive grabbing 4 big bags full of rubbish!

Enjoyed the task and look forward to doing it again!!

Take down some curtains and wash windows for Mr D (flexible timings*) (Wk1)

This will cheer him up, as his living space will look brighter, and would make him think better about where he lives

No job is too small because the resulting impact can be huge and/or phenomenal

Ms C is housebound and cannot complete this task. Completion of the job will free-up much needed space and allow her to enjoy her home again, which will enhance her well-being.

What we’ve been doing is Narnia business

Islington Report written by Sam Chapman

Anne and myself on our second combined mission for the day assisted Ms A in emptying a broken wardrobe. This was part of her plan to move her bedroom to another room in the house. It was like Narnia in there as more and more items appeared. Ms A made the decision to keep or not on each item and in no time we had a big bin bag full ready to take to the charity shop and another bag of stuff for the bin. The wardrobe was very tall and heavy so we didn’t assist with disassembling that today but she was going to get her sons to help with that. Ms A was happy for the help as part of the bigger job, so we carried the bags downstairs and off we went

Mission Impossible (but we still bagged a small victory)

Islington Report written by anne malcolm

Ms M is a hoarder and proud bag lady. The '25 bags' mentioned in the task description turned out to be a very conservative estimate. The bag mountain we found ourselves climbing was around 3m wide, at least 2m deep, and 2-3m in height, with a relatively solid base strata of suitcases and long lost armchair, on top of which was a scree of plastic bags upon plastic bags with the occasional holdall erratic and a number of cuddly toys for good measure.

The task was to 'take down some bags' for Ms M to sort through in an effort to clear the space over the coming weeks (and most likely months). Ms M was particularly keen to see the bags at the top, furthest most part of the mountain. This required some climbing and a great deal of faith in the bag mountain structure.

With no alternative space to put the items, bags were ultimately returned to the pile. However, one small victory was won when Ms M identifed a bag of bags (some with cuddly toys) which could go to the charity shop (minus 3 of the bags which she wanted to keep for herself!). We all let out a whoop when we reached this milestone moment.

Anne agreed to take the bag of bags to a charity shop and found the local Cancer Research shop both open and grateful for the donation.

Common 'as Mulch

Hackney Report written by anne malcolm

Two Goodgymmers joined the Stoke Newington Common volunteers to help bed in some young trees. While new saplings were planted around the common, Dan and Anne helped load up wheel barrows of mulch and spread it around the base of the young trees planted last year. Once that task was complete, this year's trees were ready for their mulch too. In what felt like no time at all, Stoke Newington Common and most importantly the base of a good ten young trees, were covered in little 'mulch doughnuts' keeping the weeds out and the moisture in.
