Goal Diggers

Newham Report written by Brahma Pochee

I do enjoy new project day. The curiosity of what the place is like. Will we be able to do the job asked? Do they understand GoodGym's MO? Are we going to get lost...?

A few of us pottered on over through a longer Olympic Park route, courtesy of Hils. We discussed how much worse could this government get - a lot seemed the resounding answer. Nice to have a run through of the Saturday events too, sounded like a day where you seized life by the scruff of the neck. Respect.

Jimmy greeted us in, the community garden he has created is on a vast plot. It has a wild side to it, but equally it has a considered design, with ample seating and areas to congregate. You can immediately tell this ain't his first rodeo. Our job was a super simple and satisfying mulch shifting. To cover bare patches and to "remediate the soil". Jimmy pumped out some bangers on a sizeable bluetooth speaker, and with the new developments of Stratford towering around us full-circle, the experience was rather removed from the usual. Everyone put in an energetic shift, even the marathon runners, not to be scared into lethargy by Sunday's affair.

Upon finishing, the mound of mulch had been distributed into various parts of the garden, a hefty job made plausible by people power.

Next week we're at Abbey Gardens, see you beauts then

On The Up

Newham Report written by Brahma Pochee

Hils, Louise and I caught up on the Stratford road, as we jogged north east, to The Up Garden. Points of discussion; tastiest fuel for endurance sport, recommendations for a tourist in London and commercialisation of public spaces. The time flew by, we reached the gardens with Paul, Dimple, Kev and Sharon awaiting.

We were to decant bags of shingle into tonne bags. The irony that we packed the shingle bags a few months back was not lost on us, however, new ideas and change of direction is natural in a developing space, so we were more than happy to roll up our sleeves - and get ripped. A steady supply of stones was wheeled over, thanks to the tireless efforts of Dimple, Hils and Louise. Sharon, Kev and I lofted the bags up and dumped them into their new tonne bag home. It was a pretty seamless effort. First proper return to darkness this season and no eyelids were batted, I quite enjoyed whipping the head torch out, although that may change come January...

Finally, big birthday love to the main man, Kev. Honoured that you'd want to spend your birthday with us, moving heavy bags of stones in the dark. That's commitment people! Love it.

Till next week (I'm going to do a block booking now - will update asap)
