It's sur-post to be the end of January?

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

Area Activator Simon was met with 5 Goodgym Islington runners at the Arsenal Community Hub last night. Many of our crew had been busy participating in community missions throughout the weekend (over in Highbury Fields and Penn Road Gardens), so it was awesome to see them again for our run to Thornhill Square Gardens.

After a short warm-up on the slopes on Benwell Road, we ran the 1.4 mile route along McKenzie Road and down towards Calendonian Road and Barnsbury, meeting task owner Anna McKane and cycling Goodgymmer Caitlin at the entrance of Thornhill Square Gardens. We had plenty to crack on with! Our first group (Louise, Kim and Zoe) were tasked with creating a nice fencing around the first flower beds of the park. This involved cutting multiple 2 foot posts from sturdy branches found around the park using a hand saw, and hammering the posts into the soft soil. We even had time to weave some long flexible reeds and sticks through the posts. Zoe also helped with trimming down a collection of over grown bushes in the centre of the park.

Caitlin, Claire and Alison assisted with some lifting and shifting of the collected green waste and future compostable mulch from one side of the park to the other. Caitlin also helped with some wheelbarrowing of wood chip, and successfully dried out a pervasive puddle located around the entrance of the tool shed.

It was so satisfying to see how many tasks we were able to complete in a short amount of time. Congratulations folks- many hands make light work! Upon our return run (and cycle) back to Benwell Road, we then made our way to the amazing Mesi's Kitchen on Holloway Road to celebrate our final group run session of the January Challenge. At the time of writing, we will have completed 89 good deeds between our full Goodgym Islington crew over the course of January 2023- very well done everyone!

True Grit

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

It was a joy to meet up with our crew of Goodgymmers last night at the Arsenal Community Hub (including new starter Zoe- welcome) on a thankfully slightly warmer evening than last week! Almost all of the ice on the surrounding pavements has melted away, leaving us with clear and safe running routes!

After a short warm-up on the Emirates slopes (leg swings and extensions, mixed with some dynamic aerobic exercises to generate some body heat!), we ran together down George's Street off Holloway Road, past the Ringcross Community Centre and over to Market Road. Upon our arrival, we met with Miriam, a familiar face for all Caledonian Park projects, from junior parkrun to pond building, and helped with driving a few wheel barrows over to the famous Cally Clocktower.

Our task for the evening was to assist with moving at least some of an 18 tonne pile of gravel and eco-friendly grit over to the woodland paths on the south-west side of the park. The overall objective is to create a fully accessible path for park users through a gorgeous nature trail (frequented by finches, starlings, tits and cheeky squirrels). Half of our team assisted with the main transportation of the grit using barrows and shovels, keeping a line of 5 wheel barrows in action throughout the session, while 3 of our runners took it in turns to rake down the piles of grit to create a smooth surface for park users.

Within 45 minutes, we had successfully covered about 1/5 of the entire nature path between us, which is really remarkable! Such a satisfying job, and it will be wonderful to see how things progress over the next few weeks.

If you are also curious, we will return in 2 weeks time!

Not lying around!

Camden Report written by Pete Hutchings

Last night we were making 8 beds for the night shelter guests at the American International Church on Tottenham Court Road .

We had some minor issue dealing with a table collapse to get to the bedding but were able to get that sorted and get to all the pillows, duvets and sheets needed to make the beds for the guests and make an attempt at making bedding!

Huge congratulations to Alison on hitting your 300th Good Deed last night, a fantastic achievement!

Also congratulations to Caitlin for recently hitting 50 good deeds and earning your black t-shirt.

Great to welcome new member Narinder to your first Group Run!

We were so speedy we had a chance to leaflet properties on the way back to The Living Center. South of the Euston Road we distributed leaflets for Kentish Town veg box near their pick up point at The Story Garden.

We will be back at the American International Church on the 1st and 8th Feb!
