Litter-ally the best way to spend a Monday evening

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

After a rare week away, with the wonderful Alison leading our group run to Highbury Quadrant last Monday, Area Activator Simon was so happy to be back at The Emirates Stadium for another group run, after his New York adventure! We had a top crew of 8 Goodgymmers join us for our warm-up and our run towards The ARC Centre in Angel this evening (including new faces to GG Islington- Holly and Alice- welcome!). We chose to take the scenic route up Whistler Avenue, through Highbury Fields and New North Road towards the edge of De Beauvoir.

Upon our arrival, we caught up with Alison and Caitlin, before opening up the unique tool shed/horse box 🐎 🔨 for our chosen implements for the evening- litter pickers, sturdy gloves, head torches, plastic bags and team work! Between us, we took to visiting Packington Gardens and Canalside Gardens, opposite the centre, and pitching in 10-15 minutes of solid litter picking and refuse collection around the neighbourhoods. These particular streets can be a wind block for debris, so we were heartened to see that the parks were actually looking pretty clean in comparison to our Summer months. Within a short amount of time, we had filled up multiple bags of trash, and were confident in setting off back to the Emirates for a lovely long run, followed by some stretches. Congratulations folks! Looking forward to next week!

Halloweeding

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

On a super spooky Monday evening, 7 Goodgymmers dodged the ghouls and goblins around the streets of Islington and ran together to Thornhill Square Gardens (while avoiding the rainfall too!). Area Activator Simon (in a frog onesie 🐸) set off from the Emirates Stadium with Claire, Jacqui (a brightly lit witch) and Kim (dressed up as Louise from Bob's Burgers), running up Mackenzie Road (past Holloway Road) and down past Caledonian Park.

Upon our arrival, we caught up with Anna Mckane (the local resident gardener at Thornhill Square, who was celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary that evening!), along with the rest of our crew (including Emily as a spooky pumpkin and Caitlin with her own carved pumpkin and candle!)

Together, we did a smashing job of digging and shifting some stubborn roots from within the flowerbeds, while also clearing many wheel barrows full of weeds and overgrown plants. Louise and Emily did many trips over to the Thornhill Square compost bins on the upper side of the park during our 50 minute trip. As we drew in for the end of the night, many of us made our way to The Horatia on Holloway Road to celebrate Halloween with aome refreshments and some delicious bao snacks. Well done everyone!

Weeding by the torch light

Camden Report written by Pete Hutchings

We've been at Clean Break for the last few Group Runs helping with a general tidy up of their courtyard; sweeping up and weeding. Earlier in the year over many sessions we'd done quite an extensive job reclaiming the courtyard from the weeds using the power washer. Unfortunately they grow back quickly! we'd resorted to mostly hand pulling of the weeds this time, trying to avoid our favorite sound of metal tools scraping between the cobbles!

It's been great to see over the months how the space has improved and the literal fruits of our labour in the form of a luscious veg patch.
