Bready, steady, go!

Wandsworth Report written by Anastasia Hancock (she/her)

Last night we found out that Wandsworth GGers love to bake, go to the gym, crochet, cook and eat - that's a lot of different hobbies! But one thing we all have in common is that we love getting active and helping out in our local community. So, after our usual warm up, last night we headed down to the Venue community centre to lend a hand at Waste Not Want Not.

This organisation aims to provide local people with food that would otherwise go to waste, but with their usual hub out of action for the meantime, it has moved to a local community centre. They're struggling with a lack of resources and people to help out, so Hadas, the organiser, asked us to come along to give some support.

We started off with getting rid of the food which couldn't be saved, including several loaves of fancy bread. Then we moved on to the other jobs which included recycling, composting and clearing. We then moved on to the kitchen. At first look it needed a lot of attention, but we were not to be put off. Snapping on latex gloves we got to work wiping down sides, putting away pots and pans and clearing surfaces. It didn't take long to be able to see a real difference.

Hadas needs some help getting the area ready for a baking session for the blind on Thursday, so if you can spare half an hour on Wednesday evening doing a little extra tidy up, it would be much appreciated. You can sign up and find the details here.

Job done, we had the luxury of an inside space complete with yoga mats for our fitness session. So we went through ten different body weight exercises focusing on the major muscle groups building strength and conditioning. Unfortunately, while we were having fun doing glute bridges, crunches and planks, it had started to tip it down outside. So, with hoods up and fuelled by parkrun chat we raced back to base.

This weekend if you fancy a bit of fresh air and to help out at Doddington community garden, there is a community mission at 11 am turning over veg beds. Hope to see you there!

Next week we're back at the GoodGym garden to get busy planting seeds and potatoes - come and see how it is developing and turning into a lovely, flourishing space!

Thank you very mulch!

Wandsworth Report written by Catherine Moore

Wandsworth Council kindly donated 5 bags of high quality mulch to improve the the soil in the Wandsworth GG garden, so on Wednesday evening we got to work spreading and mixing it into the beds. Once the area was prepped and ready, we planted some new crops too - tomatoes, squash and even a couple of rhubarb plants, and gave them all a little protective house with recycled drinks bottles. And the best part was, the plants were all purchased with money won at the monthly pub quiz, our usual haunt for the monthly social!

It was great to see the fig tree starting to sprout a few leaves too - hopefully a sign that warmer weather is on the way and that the tree is liking it's new home.

We've got seeds to plant next, so keep your eyes peeled for a weekend mission some time soon.

Wheely Clean Buses for Age Uk

Wandsworth Report written by Catherine Moore

Area Activator Ana took a very well deserved holiday this week, but not before setting up with a Monday night community mission, so the Wandsworth crew didn't miss out on their good deed fix!

This week Age UK Wandsworth needed our help and we got to work straight away, cleaning their fleet of 3 mobility buses and the windows near the building entrance. It was a little challenging in the dark (perhaps we could go back when it's light and a bit warmer!) but in true GG style we gave it our best and had fun in the process. Rather impressively we all managed to stay warm and dry too, with the exception of Jason and his soggy shoes - but he did a fab job as hose manager. Sophie, with her head torch, did a great job as quality controller took, checking everyone's handy work before we left.

After the task those who could stick around headed to the Latchmere for their pub quiz and an early social. Though we didn't maintain our winning streak, we did have a great time and came a respectable 3rd place.

Fork goodness sake

Wandsworth Report written by Anastasia Hancock (she/her)

Eleven GoodGymers, two tasks, 52 playing cards and one great Monday evening - that was last night in numbers!

It was great to see some familiar faces back (even if it's only briefly - we'll miss you Eva!) and to welcome new ones. Great to have you join us James, especially as you bring with you gardening expertise!

After some warm ups we went round the group revealing what star sign we were, and if we believed in what that was meant to say about us. There were some definite skeptics, a couple of believers, and the majority were unsure either way. With stars in our eyes we set off for our tasks for the evening.

The Omnibus theatre is a charitable organsation that aims to the arts to everybody. They receive no central government funding, so we're happy to come along and support them where we can. Last night we had the choice of washing down the many (many) windows, or working in the garden, a space we have custodianship of with the plan of growing crops to donate.

While most of the group opted for the garden and got cracking digging over the soil ahead of the mulch delivery we are getting from the council this week, Jordan, Eva, Beth and Sophie began preparing to clean the windows. Unfortunately a few issues beyond our control, including a sick DM, meant that we weren't overburdened with equipment. However, there was plenty of GG spirit to go around and some makeshift cleaning stuff meant that the windows were given a bit of love. Just don't mention what had made a home under one of the buckets in the courtyard!

Before too long the garden had been thoroughly dug over, the weeds removed, the fig tree admired, the future of the peas debated, and everything was looking much better. Great job everybody.

All that was left was our fitness session, which this week involved two teams competing for who could win the most cards. After several minutes of hard fought competition, the result couldn't have been tighter, in a nail-biting 17 v 18 finish! What an effort from everybody.

Next week I'll be away, so we'll be replacing the group run with a community mission at an Age UK centre, which will be lead by the brilliant Catherine. Feel free to run together as a group from the BAC as normal, or meet at the task directly. You can find all the details right here. Have a great week everybody!

Captain Marble

Wandsworth Report written by Anastasia Hancock (she/her)

I think there may have been some gremlins at play yesterday, as the session didn't go quite as expected right from the get go. However, we still managed to achieve what looked at first like an impossible challenge during the course of the night!

It all started off with a badly behaving website which didn't want us to be able to sign up for the task ahead, which was (meant) to be transporting bags and bags of compost up to Doddington roof garden. Nevertheless we persevered, and a group of 12 of us met ready to face a big upper body workout. As we did our evening's warm up we took turns in naming capital cities that ended in vowels. Oslo, Rome, Nairobi, Bogota and Quito all got a mention, but it became harder and harder to list them as we went round the group!

We took a speedy run down to the garden, arm muscles flexed, only to find....no compost. Despite the council having told Malissa it had been delivered, there was nothing to be found. It looked like our task and upper body workout was fading into the distance, but Malissa had another plan. This one involved much less soil, but a much (much) heavier weight.

The challenge was to shift an enormous workbench cupboard with the weightiest marble top from one side of the garden to the other so it could be used by the communal table and the prime sunny area it occupied currently could be used for growing plants.

And so it began. We overcame obstacles in the way, no lip to grip the top, two small pallets on wheels, not to mention the sheer weight of the thing. The first step was to transport the marble, so being super careful of fingers and toes, we perfected a tipping and edging technique that finally did the trick. All that was left was to move the cupboard itself, manouevre that into place, then pick up the marble before placing it back into position. It took the whole session to achieve this but achieve it we did, proving that impossible is nothing when it comes to GoodGym! Check out the video on X to watch the moment it all fell into place. We even managed to fit in a core blast in the nice warm meeting room below.

Next week we're back to Omnibus to spread mulch at or GG garden and wash the windows for this arts charity. There will be a lot less lifting involved, promise!

Shaking our grasses

Wandsworth Report written by Anastasia Hancock (she/her)

It was one of our favourite Mondays of the entire month last night - our regular visit to Doddington roof garden followed by our monthly pub quiz. And this one certainly lived up to expectations!

We kicked off the night as usual at the BAC where we welcomed Laudy to her very first session - great to meet you.

We then did some reps which got our heart rates up, before going round the group to discuss who we would invite to our fantasy pub quiz team. With Stephen Fry, Thomas Edison, Barack Obama, Boris Johnson and, er, Eddie Redmayne joining our super team, I think we'd clear up!

We set off for Doddington community roof garden to meet Malissa who quickly divided us up into two teams. While half of the group got started lifting grass, shaking off the mud, and saving it for replanting, the second lot began tackling the task of emptying and transporting the water butt. It sounded easier than it was. However hard they tried it would just not budge. Emptying the water with cans, trying to prise out the grate, and even attempting to leverage it with spades all sadly proved fruitless, so it was a case of abandoning this particular challenge (for now) and moving on.

There was plenty more to do, from weeding, to replanting grass and shifting turf and before we knew it our time was up. But not before we had done our weekly fitness session.This time it was EMOM - every minute on the minute. The idea is that we all do a certain number of exercises at any pace during a minute before moving on to the next set. With loads of squats, tricep dips, lunges and jacks, we worked every major muscle group and kept warm in the growing drizzle.

The pub was just a short jog away, so without wasting any time we set off for the warm inviting interior and found our places. It was another glorious week for GG quizzers as we managed to sweep third and FIRST place, with the winning team bagging another lot of funds for our garden. It's going to look blooming marvelous come the summer.

Next week I'm just waiting for confirmation that we'll have a change of task and will be heading back to Doddington to help shift a delivery of compost, so watch this space! We also have our weekly hot food delivery on Sunday, and plenty of other ways to help out too.
